This outfit by Vivien of Holloway is a total dream come true and these trousers have arrived at the perfect time as slowly head into Autumn.
After feeling a bit run down these past couple of weeks I headed to the shops recently to buy the essentials + have a little bit of retail therapy. I buy mostly all of my clothing online however I came across these sunglasses at a shop I always walk past because it's a bit too trendy for me. I love the way they look with this nautical outfit. When I really like something (e.g. sunglasses or a good bra) I am always tempted to go back and buy another one, just incase you know, they break or something and then they don't sell them anymore. I don't do this for everything of course, but sometimes it has to be done.
I love gypsy tops and have been pretty keen to try a VoH one for sometime, I went for this classic full length version which is great for tucking in to trousers or wearing untucked too. I am wearing size small and love the fit + the details!
I love how roomy these trousers are whilst still having a beautiful tailored look to them, these were the perfect length on arrival and I was so happy that I didn't have to alter them which I have done for almost all off the pairs of swing trousers I bought last winter (I'm 5'5"). It doesn't bother me because I can do it myself though I have a growing alteration pile, it was nice to just iron these and be on my way. How cute are the side buttons and the anchor embroidery!?
I was lucky enough to try two sizes to ensure I was happy with the fit. I tried the 24" and the 26" trousers, whilst both fit I found the 24" a bit too tight, this girl has a booty so I had to take that into consideration. The 26" won me over with it's comfort and the fact that I can tuck in tops, thick cardigans and jumpers into these trousers with ease.
When you got to jump you jump, I was feeling pretty darn happy on Saturday! Probably because I did some online shopping before these photos were taken, oh and I was enjoying the fresh air at my favourite place.

This is the first time I have tried VoH clothing and I am super impressed, it's made in the UK and the material is really great quality and the production is top notch. I really want to add more of their trousers to my wardrobe + try some of their skirts and tops. They have fab dresses too, I'm on the VoH bandwagon now.
I have already pictured many different outfit combinations in my head with other tops and cardigans to wear with these trousers. Can't wait to try them!
