Tomato Red is said to be one of the new season colour trends, of which i can totally get on-board with.. i mean it’s red, i love red (no secret there is it?!) So when you walk in to the shops or open the latest magazines and see red everywhere, well i am like a kid in a sweet shop! The thing i love about red is how it can look great on everyone. Blondes, brunette, black or red hair, it is just a wonderfully fun vibrant colour that adds such a fun burst on a grey day. In the depths of winter this will definitely be a great colour to be cheering myself up with. I love how it can appear dressy, work smart or casual.
It’s a great all rounder. I’m glad red is having a moment (my poor bank balance probably isn’t)
The other thing i wanted to mention was these trousers. I had been on the eternal hunt for a pair of smart trousers to give my beloved jeans a rest.
Sometimes a girl just wants a smart, well fitting but comfy trouser. Not a lot to ask for, right? Right.
Well it only took me about 2 years to find them but these bad boys are most definitely the one!
Perfect length (i love the cropped ankle grazer length, perfect for showing off your favourite shoes in all their glory), they have stretch which is very important for my high comfort levels, but also retain their shape well.
Oh and these are a size UK 6 ladies. Yep thats a confidence boost built right in there.
A dainty teeny tiny size 6.
What the What Gap?
Hey I’m not complaining here, anything that makes me feel slight and skinnier than i actually am is always a bonus, but beware if you buy online, Gap sizing is extremely generous.
This took 3 attempts in the changing rooms and sending my darling mum back and fourth to fetch new pairs before we settled on the size 6.
They are however totally worth it…
It’s trouser love
Suffice to say, i love this outfit. (is that weird to blow your own trumpet about your own outfit? I’m British we don’t do that, it feels odd)
The new gold clutch is the final stand out piece. They will be for sale very shortly at Yosa, it is the perfect little clutch for the festive season… Christmas doo’s etc. And yes, i did just mention Christmas (113 days people;)

And do you have the perfect pair of trousers? Or are you a jeans girl through and through?
