The ASOS Crop Trousers in floral print

I wish I had fabricated today's OOTD. I would have loved to have worn these lurid trousers with my rose gold thin strapped heels and a loose tee, deliberately tucked into the waistband in an effort to appear nonchalant.

This might still happen in the future but for the purposes of this post this is how I actually wore them - "plebbed" up with some flats and a blazer in an effort to shroud the loudness. And these trousers are loud. 

They are from ASOS and not something I would typically gravitate towards but since my printed trouser dalliance in the summer I am now open to wearing brights on my lower half. I also felt a bit of a strange pull towards them when I saw them on the website with three strands of thought flashing through my mind:

* Graphic floral print
* Slightly ombre finish
* Bright colours

= "add to basket"

In real life I would describe them as a "Monet" - a little bit of ugly up close and little bit beautiful from far away. 

Just to warn you my love for the floral trouser doesn't stop here either - I got a pair from Topshop that are slightly more subdued and wearable. If you kind of like the idea of patterned trousers then I would start with those - the palette is much more seasonally appropriate - Link!





























Trousers: ASOS - Link!
Shirt: ASOS
Blazer: ASOS

Jeez alot of ASOS there...

Shoes: Tory Burch - Link!
Bag: Celine
Sunglasses: Celine
Nail polish: Gelish Shake It' Til You Samba
Perfume: Etat Libre d'Orange's Divin'Infant (more on that brand later...)

I have done a bit of makeup shopping recently, although it's just a very restrained purchase of one bright lipstick and one base product from MAC. 

They have finally promoted Face and Body foundation over here and that always brings back good memories for me. Seeing as my Chantecaille is officially done and I don't have any other foundation products that give me good vibes at the moment, I thought it was worth a trip down memory lane. I am quite excited to use it tomorrow actually :)

  5. I saw some patterned trousers like these in top shop today, maybe the ones you mention, they did catch my eye but I'd never be brave enough. As usual, they work well on you though :) I'm tempted to purchase sunny Seoul lipstick from mac this weekend, what did you get?

  8. I keep going back .. looking at your photo's thinking - those floral pants are amazing! Since I'm a pear shape, solids are best on the bottom for me, but if they were boot cut, could I pull them off? Or would I just look like a 60's flower child?
