Note #38 // I've got big thighs and I cannot lie...

Shirt, old/ Trousers, Warehouse/ Heels, River Island (v.old)/ Bag, Zara/

These trousers got a lot of attention when I wore them to the launch on Wednesday. And I think the attention was all positive. I've gone a bit floral crazy this season, and have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of floral trousers. Now, I know what suits me and there is a reason that I don't have many trousers in my wardrobe - my body shape rarely allows me to find a pair even remotely close to an OK fit. To paraphrase  Sir Mix-a-lot, 'I've got big thighs and I cannot lie' - or deny them. I'm short, and what I lack in height, I sure make up for in butt and thigh. Often I can imagine a pair of trews will fit my my waist if I can! *cue raised body temperature and lots of jumping and hoicking in the changing room.*

I've lost a bit of weight, so I thought I'd give these a go. And they fit. They frickin well fit! Ok, so I had to take them up by two-and-a-half inches (ah the life of a shorty), but they have no elastane and they fit! I won't lie, sitting and breathing isn't the easiest after lunch, but I'm willing to suffer for this particular trend.

According to all style laws I've ever read, these trousers should not suit me. I'm not meant to draw attention to my bootylicious parts with such bold prints, but sod it, they are hot. And on sale. Warehouse, £30. No longer on the website, but it's worth a rummage on the sale rail in your local store. The shorts are still available online, here.


  1. i have been on the hunt for floral trousers but like you I am bootilicious and cannot find ones to fit my thighs :(

    1. I know right! Trying to find a pair of trousers is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. If I ever find any other trews that are the perfect fit, I'll be sure to let you know!
