Fancy pants

ThankFifi-Zara-brocade-3

denim jacket – Gap (last worn here)
silk tee –
Mango (mine’s old but similar and gorgeous Phillip Lim one here)
jacquard trousers – Zara
sandal – Clarks (last worn here)
glasses – Mango, watch – Calvin Klein, bracelets – various
leather bag – Autograph @ M&S
moody model nail polish – H&M 

lead – Ancol
coat – model’s own c/o Infindigo

Picked up these pants last week in Zara as soon as I saw the jacquard.  You probably know by now I’m not a massive print lover but the pattern here is more of a texture and so subtle that I loved it.  I don’t really need to dress smart for work (see exhibits A and B) but I thought ‘classic black pants for work, I need those…’.  Sold.

And so I wore them… but not to work.  Soon though conscience, soon.

Busy weekend coming up but I’ll see you on the other side!  Hope you all have a good one.x

      aw, what a shame – I think they come in a cropped version though but without the zips?

    Loving the brocade trousers – saw some in Primark today actually! Would love a navy pair if you see them anywhere. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend Wendy, Avril x
