So, I got into the Masters programme I’d applied for (MA Journalism at Goldsmiths, for the curious). This called for a celebration, so a standard date night was combined with toasting my success.
I’m crazy about trousers on other people, but can never find a pair that really work for me. The small check pair I bought off Kirsty are one the first I’ve encountered that I feel I can wear. But when the Swan range came out, I saw these unusual trews and thought I’d give them a go. I don’t know who dreamed up a matchstick pattern, but it’s cute. Anyway, I don’t feel that this is the most ‘flattering’ look on me (anonymous trolls, do your worst!) but I really, really like it. I just can’t help but indulge my fashion impulses, even if they aren’t entirely ‘flattering’. They make me happy.

As with any good date night, it descended into It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Pimm’s and confectionery in bed.
