Topshop Khaki's, Jeans & Black Trousers

Hello again!  Yes, two blog posts in a month, I'm clearly on a roll!  So you may remember I featured these lovely khaki's on here last year?  They were from Topshop and looked great however the waist band was so high up on me and no matter what top I tried on, they just didn't feel comfortable.  They ended up going back but part of me always regretted it as I never found anything else.  That was until last month. 


With the Topshop account card you always get a 20% off voucher for your birthday.  After over splurging in the sales straight after Christmas and with my wardrobe still in boxes (grrrr) I literally ordered two pairs of trousers and that was it.  Feels like a waste now, especially as there's lots more in ready for Spring.  Don't have babies in January people, it really is a pants time of year!  Ok, back to the khakis.  So yes, I found some and guess what - they are perfect!  Fit like a dream with no big belted bow to get in the way.  I braved the cold and wore them the other day (thermal vest on don't panic) as I was desperate to ditch the jeans and feel a little more Summery.

Both the bow and my ones are in stock (they even used the same image for the bow ones as I featured from them last June!).

While we are on the trouser subject, I've been a long standing lover of their jeans.  Most recently I loved their Leigh style as they were super soft and the perfect skinny for me.  They were however getting thin and old so I tried the Sidney at the end of last year.  They have been great for Winter as a thicker denim and slightly higher up the waist.  I ordered the washed black pair along with the above khakis but for some reason they have come up super tight, unlike the blue pair I have.  I have worn them around the house but they just aren't the same so I am disappointingly having to return them.  Such a shame!

You can see the extra width and my blue ones are only a few months old.
Great colours though.
Looking at how tight they are on the model below, maybe I just got lucky with my pair and they are actually meant to be that tight?!?  Either way, I'm blatantly getting old and need them to be comfortable and not that restrictive!  *UPDATE* I needed to wear some thicker black skinnies, I broke them in, decided to take a chance as they had my birthday voucher of 20% off, paid off, love them!  Still highly recommend but beware they do come up slightly different in size.

Sidney Jeans £40
Whilst we are on the subject of their trousers, I dug these black ones out the other day.  They must be at least 7 years old, probably older (I remember wearing them when I just found out I was pregnant with my second).  They have totally stood the test of time and still wash up brilliantly.  I've found a few pairs that look similar and are currently available at Topshop.
