Guess what I've bought...

This is my latest purchase. Recognise it? Yes, I've been naughty and splashed out on a pair of Whistles wisteria-print trousers.

As I predicted back in March, the Whistles wisteria print is this spring/summer's equivalent of last year's Carrie skirt - you know, the sell-out design everyone has to have. So, if that's the case, how did I get my hands on it?

Allow me to let you in on a secret: while Whistles has more or less sold out of its popular wisteria print, ASOS has got the whole collection (top, trousers, dress, jacket). And so does John Lewis. Good news if you thought you'd missed out on this pretty print.

And you know what? It's so very nice to receive something box fresh, straight from the warehouse, that has never been hung in a shop or tried on.

I think my choice of the trousers must, in part, be due to the pyjama trend. However, with its slim-cut leg and cropped ankle length, these are smarter than your casual PJ bottoms.

The price of the trousers (£125, but they are silk) means I probably won't be completing the PJ look with the matching top. But then, how often would I work the head-to-toe wisteria print, anyway?

Instead, I'll be teaming my Whistles wisteria-print trousers with a plain white tee. Or, if I'm feeling brave, I might go for a medley of prints. Watch this space.


  1. Gorgeous trousers. I wouldn't be able to work the full look either, so these are perfect as you can summer them up with a super bright top, or dress them down with a little black one - perfection :)

    1. Hi Jools,

      Yes, they're actually quite versatile given they're such a statement print. Glad you like them.

  2. I love this print and have been looking at it for a while and deliberating - just went on ASOS and mostly just 10's in the range - it is so pretty!

    I saw that Primark had done a copy cat print but the trousers were in a harsh stiff cotton

    You will look fab in yours I am sure!

    1. Ahh, thanks Deborah P!

      They're really comfy yet look so smart. Hope you get a pair!

      I've not seen the Primark ones but the harsh cotton doesn't sound good. These are silk so they're really cool and don't crease, either.
