Style me Friday {Slacks}

I have been so inspired by The Fashionista Next Door‘s Style Me Friday series, that I have decided to throw my hat in the ring and give it a go!

Ok, so technically I have to wait until Saturday to post… But that’s small price to pay for living Down Under! So I’m doing a Saturday edition of Style me Friday…

This weeks inspiration is Slacks – and I’m with Eboni on this one – for me – Slacks are big beautiful wide leg trousers.

I searched high and low for the right inspiration on this one, and have done my best to recreate the feel of this picture…

I had loads of fun joining in on this one – I think wide leg slacks can be a hard for plus size girls, and that’s why I love this inspiration pic – the loud jacket on the shoulders help to balance out the width of the pants.

So what am I wearing?
Slacks: Button up Wide Leg slacks from New Look (circa 2006 – yep I shopped the back of my wardrobe for this challenge!)
Top: Cream button up top with gold buttons and collar tips from Crossroads
Jacket: City Chic (circa 2012)
Clutch: Colette by Colette
Ring: Bought from a market in Avoca NSW while on a getaway with my family.

Bonjour Bebe!

I’m joining in the Fox in Flats Style Dares for March. Im not being fanatical about it – but when its appropriate, im giving it a shot… sometimes its nice not to have to think of what to wear from scratch – start with a theme and build from there!

Here is my outfit for Day 4: French
