Wednesday's What's The Occasion....Ditch the Dress for a Dinner Date

This week my 'What's the Occasion' is an outfit inspiration post for a dinner date. At the weekend I shared pics of the outfit I wore for dinner with my hubby. I had dug out a pair of white floral shorts and I got a great reaction from them (see my post here). I felt inspired to write another post on florals, but this time some trouser options for those that would prefer not to have their legs on show like I had. So ladies lets ditch the dress for a dinner date and cover our legs in some summery blossoms.

I have found you two trouser options. I have purposely chosen to ignore the skinny leg trouser for this post. There are so many leg shape options in shops at the moment, making it an easy task to look beyond the norm of the skinnies.... instead look to straight legs, palazzo, cigarette etc. First up let me tempt you with a straight cut trouser featuring a cropped leg. I think you're going to love the frill detailing around the pockets and the hem...it's all in the detail ladies!

Next up is this fabulous pair of palazzo (wide leg) pants. This shape pant is extremely flattering on curvier figures, however I really think every body shape will be trying the wider leg this summer.

Both trousers are only €55 and they are both equally as gorgeous! They are the perfect purchase for the summer season easily styled for a dressy occasion or a casual day look on your holidays. The fabulous floral prints are standout stunning and even a simple tee is all that's needed to create a striking look.

Now for some inspiration on how I would style both pairs of trousers for a Dinner Date. Okay first back to the straight cropped leg. Tuck in the following statement sleeve linen top and let the trouser do the rest.
