Back to basics

Do my eyes deceive me? Am I? Is she? What? Yes, I'm wearing trousers. One of the only three pairs that I own- Yes I own jogging bottoms for well...jogging and lounging about, but dresses and skirts do it for me 95% of the time. Everyone's got a body hang up mine would have to be my thighs. I'm bottom heavy and I just feel I don't look right in them. "Don't be so stupid! you silly girl" my boyfriend and Mum will say. Call me crazy but we've all got a 'thing' and I guess mine would be that. Wearing heels works wonders if you are short and a little curvier like me, naturally elongating the legs. I was feeling brave that Saturday morning and decided to take the plunge and wear these fabulous trousers I picked up last year in the Miss Selfridge sale. Sometimes it's nice to just strip back and go well...back to basics.

I've started going for jogs recently- which has been hard as I really loathe going early in the morning and generally I'm a bit crap at it. But once I'm going I'm fine and also with a decent playlist definitely gets me going. I'm currently updating my jogging playlist right now and decided to add some Ricky Martin to it. 'She bangs' is a good running track right? What are your favourite workout tracks? I'd love to know!


  1. I know how you feel. I feel that I'm quite bottom heavy too, and because I'm short it makes me tend to steer clear of trousers. Heels do seem to help, but let me assure you - you look amazing in pants and have a gorgeous figure! And the ones you are wearing a such a gorgeous pair. You look lovely!

  2. Don't worry about it, you look great! (I, on the other hand, have no curves in the places a girl should have curves and also hardly a waist, hahaha, oh dear) ;P

  3. Your legs look great! Having a little more muscle on your legs is way more attractive than stick legs anyway. I think these patterned trousers look so nice on you. The pattern is great!

  4. This is a really different look and I love it!! :) Gisforgingers xx

  5. You look awesome Rebecca! Those trousers are stunning, and look soooo good on you! x


  6. These look awesome on you!! I feel the same way you do about wearing pants (my "thing" is my tummy, which is why I rock a fit and flare dress so often!), but I think we should both wear them more often :)

  7. Cute pants!!! I'm short too, and curvy :) I enjoy working out or dancing to EDM for the most part. Krafty Kuts! Funkanomics! DJ Icey, Stanton Warriors to name a few!

  9. But you look so great in pants!! :) I feel you though. I have the same insecurity. I've even done so much research on workouts that can give me a thigh gap. Hehe. But i figured my body really isn't hardwired to have a thigh gap so i just changed my fitness.
