What I Wore | 22.06.13

Hope you're all well! I've had quite a hectic week myself, there hasn't been a day with nothing going on! On top of job hunting I've been busy catching up with amazing friends I haven't seen in months, my mum's birthday was yesterday and I have also been with the family celebrating both me and my sister graduating with a first in about a months time! WHAT?!
Not once during my course have I even considered that I might get a first, so when I found out at my friends house on Tuesday, I literally must have been leaping around the kitchen for ten minutes straight.
Definitely my greatest achievement to date and I am so proud of what my sister and I have achieved, let's just hope we both get jobs soon enough, eh!
Anyway, onto the post! I thought I would show you what I wore to a family meal out to celebrate my sister's first (she found out about a week before me, so of course another meal out is essential to celebrate mine).
Vest top: Be Beau at Matalan | Trousers: George at ASDA (via Charity Shop) | Blazer: Primark | Necklace: Primark | Shoes: Primark | Bag: Boohoo
I didn't actually realise how much of a bargain this outfit was!
I have been doing a lot of charity shop shopping recently and I think these trousers are probably my favourite purchase. They are only from George at ASDA originally, but they remind me a little of the trousers I have been eyeing up in H&M recently so I thought for £3.50 I'd brave my first ever pair of patterned trousers. They are a seriously light, soft material that fall really nicely; it just feels like you're wearing pyjamas so they're perfect for a heavy meal out.
I didn't think I'd wear them all that much but I think I've already proved myself wrong!
I teamed them with a Primark blazer which I must have had for at least 3 years now, and some lightly studded nude Primark pumps. The blazer is well loved and getting a bit old and battered bless it, so I'm planning on buying a couple more replacement ones soon.
Are you a fan of statement trousers?
