So I have discovered that modelling an outfit is a lot harder than it looks and I still have a long way to go before becoming the next Jessica Stein or Nicole Warne. Nevertheless, I'm determined to persevere!

I picked up these pants during the 2012 Boxing Day sales and have been looking to wear them whenever I can to pop some colour into my outfits, instead of turning to the essential-but-ever-so-reliable basic black.

I don't always have much luck finding well-fitted and suited pants either, so this was a purchase that my credit card couldn't refuse!
