When we speak of style being feminine and ladylike, we instantaneously associate it with flirty dresses, structured skirts and bows or Blair Waldorf. What usually gets overshadowed is a pair of well tailored trousers. This is often the case in most women's closets as well. While we cover our LBDs and white shirts as essentials, more often than not, this piece of clothing is left out.
For many years, I was always under the impression that since I was short, wide-legged trousers were not my thing but thankfully, I've got rid of that notion. Take it from me, all these kind of trousers need *if you are petite like me* are additional height in the form of heels/wedges. Throw in a lace blouse and this summer's hottest shades on my lips and you have a look that is nothing short of feminine!

Along with the neutral tones of the outfit, I brightened things up with a daring pop of orange lipstick *which I was nervous to try but am glad that I took the plunge!* and an all new purple hair extension courtesy the lovely folks at Jean Claude Biguine at the Elle + Mozaic event.
So how are you planning on adding a dash of colour this summer?
