Flower Child - Floral Print Peg Leg Trousers from F&F

In those brief windows which promise a flicker of summer, I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone and switch up how I dress for the warmer weather. My wardrobe is filled with vintage polyester and repro dresses which are my usual go to, but often worn with tights or leggings and even cardigans despite the soaring heat. It's mostly due to feeling insecure about my dry and blotchy skin, but as I'm getting older, I'm realising that people just don't care. Everyone is too busy with their own life to take note of every single little thing you hate about yourself, so with that mind set firmly in place, this is going to be the summer where my legs, my arms and even glimpses of my stomach will be very much on show.

I don't wear trousers very often, but having just a skirt or dress without leggings when on a photoshoot isn't practical unless I want to show everyone the colour of my underwear. But that didn't mean that I had to stray too far from my floral ditsy print loving style. When I saw these Floral Print Peg Leg trousers (£16) on the F&F website, I knew that they would be the perfect bridge between being practical and not veering too far from my personal style.
The trousers are available up to a UK 22, and with their comfy waistband and tapered leg are as easy to wear as they are pretty. They have pockets on the hips which is always a plus for any photographer, and a fabric belt which can easily be removed.

I teamed it with an old favourite vest rolled up from Simply Be, a Pearls & Swine rose headband and some ballet flats from JD Williams.

All the floral elements make me feel like it's still very me, just a more casual and sunshine ready version. I'd definitely wear this to a festival or for a picnic in the park, and would simply ditch the floral headband for a single flower clip to bring it back to be more everyday. I was so surprised how comfy I felt in the trousers, and loved the print so much that I've brought the matching dress too which will also be in the blog soon!

Until next time,
