Shades of Grey.

Hello, hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend, ate loads. I stuffed myself full with an amazing cheesecake that me and my mother made, plus loadsa chocolate.

I couldn't wait to show you these leggings. I blogged about a similar pair from River Island but these £6 bad boys from Primark as just as good and I'll probably wear them just as much too. In this picture as well I'm wearing a size 18, a size down to what I usually get at Primark and they're still pretty baggy around my ankles. There is a lot of stretch in them in the leg, and around the waist so if you think you can't wear them, think again.

I paired them with a black top  and black boat shoes as I wasn't feeling super adventurous. And I have no idea what else to wear with them. I'm thinking a chunky white jumper? And leather jacket but again that's just all black and white. Can you suggest anything for me to wear them with?
You can particularly see the print in this last photo, and how well it goes with the silver cuff. I think chunky jewelry is the only way to go when wearing such a plain top, and tried to carry on the tribal theme with the colourful arrow ring. The only colour that is in the outfit. 

I finally started taking photos against the blank wall too! I think this just makes my clothes stand out in the photos rather than all the random crap on my shelves in the background.

  1. i love the leggings! wow!


  2. I love the laggings :] I have a similar pair. I size down for primark leggings too x

  3. I adore these leggings, you look amazing! Maybe you could try pairing them with a brightly coloured top, in a pink or red? I think that would look pretty cool :) xxx

  4. I love those leggings! Black is really nice with it and I love the big chunky cuff too. If you wanted another option like Helen, I'd go with a block coloured top! :)

    Hope you don't mind but I've nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award :) I love reading your blog :)
