army and ombre

Posted by Emma Salter On 14:12
Is there such a thing as a lazy tuesday outfit? No, well I'm calling it! I just threw on this combo, I'm obsessed with my new ombre trousers from H&M that I'm trying to find everything and anything that will go with them! And it's not even summer yet... oops! 

Army Top - Boyfriends (carboot sale 50p)
Black mesh socks - Primark £1.50
Creepers - Opium £15

Quickly put together outfit to show you my new trousers I bought recently from H&M, work were having a one-time 50% off trousers for staff and I jumped at the chance for these high waisted paisley print trousers with a blue ombre tint. They are made from a soft silky material and are perfectly loose for summer! I went for a medium as I'm usually a size 12/14 but these felt abit big around the waist, they are elasticated so I suggest if any of you are thinking of buying them definitely try them on and go for a walk around as they may fall down! I'm also wearing my boyfriends Army top, which I think he found at a car boot sale. My mother always told me "blue and green should never be seen" but personally I think the missmatch of greens/oranges/blues works! Especially as green is a major colour in H&M at the moment, I tried to do the best with what I've got! H&M has a whole range of similar patterns from this trouser collection, it's in stores now so grab it while you can! They are priced at £12.99, very cheap if you ask me! So of course I was delighted when I had the chance to have them for £6.49 ;) What do you think of them? 

These creepers definitely need to be chucked/replaced soon, I bought them about a year ago and have been wearing them non-stop through the winter months, they're so comfy I don't want to through them away! But as cheap dupes go, they are falling apart :( I think I bought them for £15 from one of those chavvy market stall shops in my local mall. Check out my black mesh socks that I picked up from Primark recently! I love them, they were only £1.50 and go so well with my creepers and are bang on trend! I also bought some black lace socks but I haven't had a chance to wear them out yet, need to get styling! Do you like them?
