Triple Temptation: ASOS 50% off 50

This week I got a newsletter from ASOS about a spring event – 50% off 50 key pieces. I’m not usually inspired by the selection but this time I clicked through and found 2 items I loved at total steal prices. Even better I could totally see them together so I decided to included a third item (the shoes) and create a triple temptation outfit.

ASOS Metallic PRIOR Pointed High Heels £45 // T-Shirt with Tiger Print in Foil £18, now £9 // Trousers in Geo Jacquard £45, now £22.50

My love affair with metallics and pastels shows no signs of waning so this outfit is right up my street. The sugary pastel tones in the shoes and trousers are given a futuristic edge by the addition of the mirrored metallics and the copper foil tiger tee is just the right amount of quirk to give some necessary cool factor.

What do you think readers?

Wear it Two Ways: Printed Pants

Months ago, I shared these pants, (a complete find in the bog-standard section of M&S) and boasted that I could see myself wearing them right through winter and into next spring. Today the proof is in the pudding.

In truth, I have worn them countless times. For many evenings out but also in the day. The easiest way is with a darker toned top (just like the evening ensemble here,) but I have also ventured into the realms of print on prints, with my trusty polka dot chambray shirt from GAP.

Fortunately printed pants are going precisely nowhere this season, great news for me as these have really gone the distance – look out for some for yourself in paisley, bright or geometric prints. Footwear is key – choose ballet flats for Parisian chic, pointed courts for evening glamour, or brogues for a casual, quirky look.

Are you wearing printed pants yet?

Have a great Monday readers,
