‘The’ Pink Corduroy Trousers….

If it isn’t snaps of people’s feet crushing burnt orange leaves, arrays of pumpkins of every colour (like who knew a few years ago they grew not just in orange?) it is the famous Instagram worthy pink  corduroy trousers, circulating over our feeds momentarily, and the latter is where I join in the Instagram fun.  If I’m truly honest  I coveted nearly every pair I saw up on the so called grid. It was the pair from Mango that caught my eye first which I failed to get as at the time I was in an end of Summer denial and was much happier freezing in my summer clothes….Shortly followed by the holy grail of a pair by Isabel Marat,  of course this really was love at first sight, but even the heart this time intervened between monthly outgoings and paying for a pair of trousers.  But it was as if on some level it was meant to be, when a few weeks later there was a pair calling out my name in where else but of course Zara.

I am a huge fan of anything with that retro 70’s vibe, a ’78 baby after all, memories of my mum in cord flares, big heeled wedges, brown and mustard polar necks, bold print blouses and A line skirts.  So these dusty dark pink cut of corduroy with a wide leg, fit this vibe in shape, style and even in colour as I think I there is even a photo of me kicking around with a similar pair on, thirty odd years ago.  I also like the length, as it still slightly nods to Summer, allowing for exposed ankles, and of course, the price is a bargain and anything that jumps right out of an episode of Stranger Things, makes me feel at home.

I suppose it is innate in me to just be drawn to this era of fashion, with these trousers and a my new Netflix ongoing fix,  you may as well throw a blanket around me, as if comfort fashion is even a thing.

So now I suppose all I need is the burnt orange leaves and the array multi coloured pumpkins with the said dusty pink corduroy trousers….oh and a BMX while we are at it and then I’m so on this Instagram game…….Well there have been ‘Stranger Things!’
