You may have noticed by now, I like to show off my ankles – there’s not really a time of year when there’s not a slither on show.
It’s just easier for me, I don’t have to worry about whether they work over my shoes and they’re the perfect spring trouser for showing skin without the commitment.
However, it’s not for everyone. Just the other day I got the mickey taken out of me by some school kids for my ‘ankle swingers’ but I love them. These are also another pair that will help wean me off my jeans obsession.
And they’re different to most other items in my wardrobe – they’re vertical stripes, as opposed to horizontal, for a start.
Mango is on fire right now, perhaps it’s due to the recent endorsement of Super Bloggers Camille Charriere, Pernille Teisbaeck and Lucy Williams. Or perhaps it’s just because they’ve upped their game lately. Whichever it is, I am loving the brand at the moment.
And it really is the perfect time to bring your biker jacket out of hiding. I love the mix of the tough jacket with a more flowy, natural fibre of these trousers. Leather and linen? An ideal combination.
