What I Wore: Comfy Sunday


Today my fiancé and I decided to go out for lunch, to one of my favourite bars (the Orange tree in Leicester – they serve a cracking veggie roast!)  Afterwards, we went for a leisurely wander around town, did a spot of shopping and checked out the new Richard III monuments near the cathedral.  A lovely casual day called for a casual outfit, so I threw on this gorgeous draped hoodie with a basic tee, and my favourite pair of jeans.  I love anything acid wash and polka dots, and these jeans combine the two, and are made of light, stretchy denim so are incredibly comfortable.  They’re a real wardrobe staple and have seen me through Spring and Summer, but will also be great for Autumn, worn with a pair of chunky boots.

I ordered this oversized draped hoodie from a few weeks ago.  It was originally intended to be for my mum, but unfortunately it doesn’t quite fit her right, so she let me have it.  Believe it or not, this is an XXXL, but Asian sizes are a LOT smaller than our Western sizes, so it fits me, a size 10/12, like a baggy hoodie.  There’s no way it’s a UK size 20 like the website suggests!

Tops like this are absolutely perfect for this time of year.  It was sunny today, so too warm for a coat, but there was a hint of Autumnal coolness in the air, so it kept me nice and cosy, and the hood is great for when you want an extra bit of warmth.  I also really love the length and draped style of the hoodie as it gives it a slightly witchy edge, and though it looks good baggy, I adore the more tailored shape of it when worn with a waist belt over the top.

What pieces will be seeing you through the Summer to Autumn transition?

Student Fashion Essentials: Slouch Trousers


To coincide with Freshers week and the start of university for a lot of new students, here is the second installment in my series of posts about student fashion essentials.  Whilst at university, space and funds are often limited, so for the fashion conscious it’s important to be able to stay looking good on a budget, with versatile pieces that can be worn again and again with different looks.

Though university is hard work, you’ll probably also find yourself at home in between lectures with a lot of free time on your hands, and it’s during this time, and on lazy weekend days, that comfy clothes are key.  So with this in mind, today’s post is all about the genius invention that is slouch trousers.


I recently came across a brand called Beaufox, who specialise in fashionable loungewear which is both affordable and trendy.  They stock a range of pyjama style slouch trousers for men and women, in a variety of designs from tie dye to skull print to floral, which are available in a light summer fabric, or lined for the colder Autumn and Winter months.  I was recently sent a pair of Beaufox trousers to try for myself, and they are incredibly comfortable, just like pyjamas, but look really great on.

My pair feature an all over black and white Yin Yang print, and are made of soft, loose fabric.  This pair are from the summer collection, and though they look fab with a vest top and flip flops, they are warm enough for this time of year when teamed with a jumper and pumps.



Perhaps the best thing about Beaufox’s slouch trousers is that they can be worn around the house like pyjamas, but can also be worn out of the house as normal trousers.  So, if you’re sitting around watching a film and fancy a bar of chocolate, you can nip out to the shop without looking daft!  They have two deep pockets too, so you can easily carry your change and phone on you without having to worry about a bag.

The trousers are one size only, but they fit me fine and I’m a size 12.  I’d say they’d fit sizes 8 to 12 with no trouble.  The length is also fairly decent.  I’m 5’9″ and usually wear a 34-36″ leg length, and though Beaufox’s slouch trousers are probably more suited to an average leg length of about 30-32″, if I wear them low on my hips they are plenty long enough and still feel comfortable.


Beaufox’s slouch trousers are also great for festivals and camping, so they’ll last you all year round whilst allowing you to look and feel fun and fashionable on a budget.  You can get yourself a pair here for £15.99 for the summer trousers, or £19.99 for the lined trousers – bargain!

Which design would you choose?  Check out the Beaufox website and let me know.
