 Trousers - 2nd hand/KappAhl
Crop Top - Top Shop
Scarf&Earrings - Stolen off mama
Shoes - Citymarket

This late summer/autumn I've gone through a bit of a trousers phase. It's been strange, but I've also been liking it. I actually bought two trousers this summer, these tartan ones being the other pair. For a second hand item their quality is so good, and they only were £2-3 which makes me a very happy lassie. A pretty pattern, a high waist, pockets, a good length as well as fit, what more can one ask for? Then there's this top, that I really love. I've had it for quite a while now, but am pretty sure this is the first time it's appearing on the blog. I love the contrast between lace and leather. But am I the only one who's a tiny bit afraid of wearing lace as it gets caught everywhere so easily and I just don't want to ruin my top? I think I'll try pairing it with a dress next, both to avoid from damaging it and to make it more day-time appropriate/less revealing. I have to say I miss this scarf. We (my mum and I obviously..) bought it at the same time as I got these trousers and she offered to give it to me. I wish I had been wiser and more selfish, because this scarf is so large and warm that I just want to wrap myself inside it again.

I am in AWE over those trousers. I can never find pants at thrift stores because the sizing is always a bit off, but those fit you like a dream! And I love the mix of tartan with lace- it's so fun and unexpected and goes so so well. Also, I love those fun pompoms on your mom's scarf. I now need to add pompoms all over my scarves.
