Aztec Trousers and Clashing Colours & Passion For Fashion Link Up!!

 Remember my first round with relaxed trousers? i was pretty convinced that they weren't for me and these hips right here. But, never one to be defeated easily i have gone and tried this style again. When i saw these tribal print relaxed jogger i took them to the changing room to first try them on. I instantly loved them (again, the comfort people...they are SO comfy!) and so they came home for me for fancy-joggers take two.
I started with a cream top, which was nice and all but i wanted a bit more colour. So when Clarks kindly let me choose a pair of they're lovely shoes, i thought i'd pack a punch with these beauties and clash it up with a bit of orange. I have always loved Clarks shoes and had a tough time deciding which pair to get, i went for a lovely pair of flats as it seems i lack some more sensible shoes lately and as we are off to Cornwall with lots of walking next week funky flats seemed the best option. Who said flats have to be boring? Not Clarks that's for sure ;)
My darling husband however was not taken by this outfit---at all (man repellent possibly?)I kept teasing him and striking a hammer time pose just to make matters worse. He actually enquired as to if i was going out in these pyjama like trousers, to which i walked my bum out the door so he could see that yep, i meant pyjamas.

  1. Tee hee, my OH hates these kind of trousers too, but I don't wear them anyway. What he really hates is animal print, but I still sneak in a few items, perhaps knickers or a pair of ballet pumps. The days of head to toe Bet Lynch are gone though!

    I think these look great on you, especially with those neon bright accessories, really lovely and summery x

  2. I always look at these type of trousers and think they would be so great for relaxed days, but then when I try them on I feel as though I'm wearing PJs or something and just feel frumpy rather than cool. I guess that's because it's really unusual for me to wear trousers.

  3. I have an MC Hammer jumpsuit. I love it,so comfy but I do know it's funny. But these look great! I'm so tempted to go and try some, but I have got hips AND thighs AND backside... not so sure I can pull it off!

  4. Love the pants!! They look great on you! I adore anything comfy but still stylish!

  5. I love the pop of orange! And your pants look comfy chic ;) Thanks for hosting thhe link up, stopping by from Fairy Dust.


  6. I'm so happy to see that these pants look wonderful on you! So far I've only seen these types of pants on ladies without much hip going I wasn't sure if they would look good on me at all. Now I think I'm going to have to give them a try!

  9. I definitely wear things I love even if Simon doesn't agree. It doesn't happen often though :D We're off to a wedding in June and I'm planning to wear a dress he hates cos it's gorgeous and I love it :D

  10. My husband has a great eye though we do see things differently sometimes. I do what I like anyway even if we disagree. He always wants my hair shorter than I do, I mean really short, one inch or so. I like you pants especially with the brights!

  11. I love pink and orange together, super cute! My husband rarely says anything neggie about my outfits, it's usually the other way around ~ me wanting him to "tweak" what he's wearing before we leave the house. ~Ann

  12. I'm not the world's hugest fan of these trousers - I still have memories of MC Hammer. But I love the print on these, and teamed with orange I think they look really fab.

  14. Love your outfit, the pants are fabulous and I love your shoes!

  15. Those pants look great on you! I love how you paired them with orange and pink - so pretty!


  16. Round two is a Knock Out!!! Love the punchy colors (and I'm so happy you showed the yellow coin purse)!

    Yes, I have worn things Hubby doesn't like. He seems to be used to my kind of crazy though. :o)

  17. THose pants are just tooo adorable on you!!! LOVE IT!!! Those flats are prefect with this outfit. You are just a stunning lady! :)

  18. I'm having a love affair with orange at the moment, I'm lusting after a pair of tangerine coloured courts. You'd be proud of me, I've just spent £54 on F&F clothes. Loving their range at the moment! I know what you mean about man repellent clothes, John absolutely hates that zebra jumper! I'm glad it doesn't put you off :-) xx

  19. Those shoes are AMAZING I must say! Stopping in from the link up!

  21. I love the pants! I have quite a collection of pajama trousers comfortable. And yes, my husband hates them too...he says I look like I have an old man butt! Haha! I don't care, though because I love them.

  22. Hello dear! I came across your lovely blog through Sacramento. Now I'm following you via gfc and bloglovin. In love how you matched the comfy pants with those beautiful loafers.

  23. Love your outfit! Very summery!

  24. Lovely outfit. I have a similar pair of pants that I just debuted on the blog. I felt a little bit like I was wearing PJs when I left the house, but I have on jewelry--and I don't wear jewelry to bed. So that proves that these are "outside" pants!

    My husband doesn't "get" a lot of what I wear. I know what to wear if I want to grab his attention, but I'm not going to dress for him all the time. He calls my style "quirky" and that's fine by me!

  25. the pants look great on you! my SO also thinks these type of pants look like PJs but whatever, I think they're comfy and stylish!

  26. Those pants are so rad! You look stunning! xo Andrea
