Menswear Inspired Trousers

 I hope you had an amazing weekend! Like I mentioned in the last post, I spent all of Saturday at the Brilliant Fashion Show and Fundraiser for Mental Health Awareness.
It was a super long day, but it was so much fun to get crazy hair and makeup, do a bunch of rehearsals and do a lot of waiting around for the shows to start. I walked in the show for designer Nina Tan and Is Salon and it was great to see everyone showcase their talents to bring this show together.

So after Saturday's crazy long day, all I wanted to do on Sunday was relax and chill out with Ollie. I spent the morning watching Netflix until we finally decided to get out of the house to go for a walk, snap some shots and get some sushi. It was definitely a lazy one, but it was exactly what I needed.

I received these trousers about a week ago and they have become my new favourite pants. I know they won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I just love the high waist, baggy fit and menswear cut so much. I've already worn them so many times and I think I might just have to get them in a different color as well.

I think one of the best things about menswear inspired pants is the super deep pockets. They always are so much roomier than fitted pants.

The relaxed and tapered fit is just so cool and effortless. I've really been gravitating to this style lately. The baggier the better!

The high waist on these pants are way too fun. They remind me of grandpa pants and this just makes me love them even more. Next time I'll style them with the top tucked in, but I wanted more of a relaxed casual style yesterday.

Adding an oversized blazer emphasizes the whole menswear style to this look. You could go the opposite and do a fitted top, which I think would look great as well. A nice fitted turtleneck sweater would look especially amazing.

They can be worn cuffed or uncuffed at the bottom, but I always like to show my ankle with anything oversized or loose-fitting. My ankles and my wrists are really the only skin showing and this helps to slim me down and hint at my figure when you can't actually see it. It's the best trick to appear slim in such oversized clothing.
