For this look I have been channeling my inner man and gone all androgynous with one of my favourite styles of the high waisted tapered trousers. High waisted trousers and I have had a long lasting love affair for me (don’t tell the black skinnies) with last summer consisting in me living in my pair of high waisted black ones from Topshop with never wanting to wear anything else. Topshop have done their best again with this pair of dark navy pinstripe beauties. 

I love these specifically being made from such comfy fabric, I really didn’t want to take these off, a tie waist band synching you in at the waist to add a more feminine touch and a great cut. These are a great versatile pair of trousers working casually during the day with a cropped jumper and and flat shoes, or dressed up in the evening with a nice lightweight shirt and heals (like I ever wear heals).

Finding this style such a flattering shape for me, I find them such a breath of fresh air from the normal jeans and T shirt combo  all students are very familiar with. Being fitted and high waisted its nice sometimes its nice for the change to wear something a bit more form fitting encouraging you to put a bit more effort in and show off those curves. However I haven’t been afraid to throw on my biggest baggiest jumper over them in one of those just get out and go moments.

Now they may not be bright yellow covered in purple spots but being made in this lovely navy pinstripe to me they are a rather statement trouser so unsurprisingly the rest of the outfit consists of black, black and more black.

As you may have been able to tell this was my second little post from my lovely day in Bath. In England I don’t think you could ask for a better setting than the undeniably beautiful royal circle and crescent in the lovely sunshine and beautiful sunset (totally decided that is where I shall ‘summer’ this year). I’ve always loved this city and was very enjoyable to explore all the little nooks and crannies while taking some lovely little photos of this beautiful city.

On another day of galavanting around the country in the search of another set of blog photos, after seeming to have exhausted our local surroundings, we headed down to the beautiful city of Bath. The combination of beautiful old sand stone buildings making up the picturesque streets with a great splash of sunny weather made for a great little set of snaps.

With us getting our full tourist on I went for a simple, comfortable monochrome look of some classic black skinny’s, which seems to be my uniform nowadays with barely being able to prise them off myself, an oversized white shirt (not quite a shirt dress for a change) and the normal accessories of a scarf and Doc Martens. With not being blessed with the figure of Kate Moss (Nutella is just too hard to resist sometimes) in true rabbit style I like to bury myself under loose fitting clothing for those days when you just don’t fancy breathing in. It has been a long term mission of mine to find the perfect white shirt with it being a classic wardrobe staple basic. Despite this one in photos making me look doubly wide, I like the length and crisp white fabric of this one, despite its ability to crease at the slightest touch. (luckily these photos were taken just before dropping my pizza lunch all down the front) Despite the beautiful sunshine with the slight chill in the air I threw on this thick baggy grey cardigan for a little extra warmth.

Now I can hear all you British readers saying ‘you went all the way to Bath but yet didn’t go and visit The Royal crescent or The Royal Circle?’ Well, obviously I wouldn’t be that stupid so stay tuned for part 2 coming up soon featuring some of these lovely photos.
