Casual Trousers

I have been wearing skirts and dresses almost full time during the last 5 months or so while the weather has been warm and it still is very mild for late October here in the UK. I am sure it will get colder soon and my trousers will come out of the closet.

It is the school half term holiday this week and we are planning a short break to Durham to see a living museum set in the early 1900s. We all love museums and Hannah is doing a project on this period at school so it will be really useful for her to see the displays. I will do a post on our experiences when we return.

I have been looking out for some more casual trousers for some time. The majority of my trousers are formal and black - for wearing to the office during the winter. I don't like the image of denim jeans, especially distressed ones, so I was pleased when I came across these trousers in royal blue, a week or so ago, in a charity shop. The material is a thick polyester/wool mix and they have wide straight legs and a generous cut. They cost £4.00.  I don't normally publish pictures of my rear, without a tunic or long top, but will on this occasion as I think these trousers give quite a modest appearance and I feel quite comfortable with them. I am sure a few skirts only ladies won't agree with me though!

They are really warm and comfortable and wonderful to relax in. I plan to wear them during our mini break next week.

  5. It'sounds pleasant breaking with the routine for some days and a visit to a (living) museum is always a good idea! Your trousers are lovely and suits you perfectly! They have a beautiful colour too.
    We will have a couple of days off in Italy next week and I will probably visit the new exhibitions in the city!!
