When they arrived I hurriedly tried them on. They're button ups, all except for the top button which is actually a popper. Unfortunately, this has a tendency to go pop every time I bend over. Not a good look! I think perhaps they may be a teensy bit too small for me. That's fine, I intend to hold my breath whenever I wear them!
I paired them with my favouritest of shirts, a lovely checked fitted shirt from New Look that I wear far too much and is, again, a little too small for me (finally I have the frontage of a woman!). I had originally intended the shirt (and the jeans) to be used as patterns for further fabulous clothing but I appear to love them both a little too much to let them take a time out from my wardrobe. I particularly love the pocket detail on the front of the jeans.

Anyone have any ideas what that would have been used for?
I was going to wear this outfit to my parent's yesterday afternoon, they phoned to invite me to their first BBQ of the year. But with the ever popping button and my propensity for eating far too much whenever they have a BBQ convinced me at the last minute to change into something with a lower waist band to accommodate any growth. I'll just have to come up with a non-nom day to wear it again.
Thanks for stopping by,
