What I Wore: Wide Leg Trousers

My new favourite trousers came out to play recently, for a lunch in Brisbane with a gorgeous bunch of women.

Women that only met each other because of the everdaystyle hashtag on Instagram created by Nikki from Styling You.

 If you’re not already part of the #everydaystyle community – jump on board.

With a little effort on your part, you will reap the rewards ten fold. I promise.

Beautiful woman who empower each other through kindness, positivity and a love of all things style, fashion and life on a daily basis.

We share each-others high and lows.

If someone goes missing in action for a few days – we check-up on them to make sure they’re ok.

Like the virtual equivalent of caring about your neighbour.

The everydaystyle community has a far reach. Woman from all over the world (not just Australia) stop by for a daily fashion fix of inspiration.

It’s truly amazing.

Here’s the girls in all their glory:

Now, let’s get down to business – what I wore…

What I Wore: Wide Leg Trouser

Utility Pant $179.00 Country Road (I’m wearing a 12) | Sheer Sleeve Blouse in Nude (I’m wearing a 12) $129.00 Witchery

I can’t even remember a time when there wasn’t a pair of wide leg pants of some sort, in my wardrobe.

They’ve always offered the perfect balance to my thigh and butt issues.

Being a pear-shaped girl means there are a few things that are harder to wear for me – unless of course I add the extra height.

Hopefully it makes perfect sense why I am so obsessed by my heels!

The thing that really goes in this curvy girls favour though, is I have long legs…thanks Dad x

Add my long legs to my heels and I’m able to obtain the perfect illusion.

Because that’s exactly what it is.


When I take off my heels and strip myself bare (not a pretty sight) my pear-shape is full-on out there, for all to see.

These days though, because I know my shape so well,  I can disguise it most of the time.

Yes, it’s all about having style confidence.

Years ago I opted to cover up my legs as much as possible. I worried continually about what people thought.

These days my attitude is very different.

I believe we should all embrace who we are, and what we have been given.

We also need to acknowledge that we all go through different phases in our life, at different times.

There are no hard and fast rules.

Our priorities change. Life happens.

Weight comes and goes – it’s no big deal.

Just be the best version of YOU, today.

The version that makes you the happiest.

Keep in mind there will always be people who won’t agree with your style choices.

But who cares?

Just have confidence in YOU.

Let your style creativity flow OR take start by taking some baby steps to unleashing your inner goddess!

Because I for one have decided that I’m not listening to my inner demons any-more.

I adore wide leg pants so much, that I didn’t think twice when it came to ordering them in cream.

Yes. Cream.

The very opposite to the colour you should wear on chunky thighs, if you’re playing by the rules of course.

Whoever set that rule, didn’t realise how determined I can be, when I find something I LOVE.

Happy Thursday Everyone…

Are you a jump straight in risk taker or a hold back kinda girl when it comes to style and fashion?

  • Fabulous look Bev! Would have loved to have met you all. I love to wear pants, especially white but I find they become dirty too quickly with my girls. I still wear them but I do go through a lot of napisan!

    • Next time we get together you must come with us Bec – so many beautiful souls that I’d never had the pleasure of meeting before that I already felt I knew.
      Napisan is my best friend too – I’m such a mucky pup! Thanks for the love xx

  • Love, Love, Love this look on you! The proportions and palette are flawless.
    Have a happy Easter Bev! x

    • Thank you so much Claire – you’ve made my day!
      Have a fabulous Easter! xx

  • Effortlessly glam. J’adore. x

  • Oh how awesome – what an amazing lunch that must’ve been.
    LOVE those pants on you Bev! LOVE!
    You look so glam!

    • Thank you so much for the love Claire xx
      Next time you must join us. There were 3 gorgeous girls from the GC – everyone was so delightful!

  • Petra

    You look very Hamptons Bev! I liked what you wrote “…just be the best version of you, today…” – I must take this to task. Due to long-term medication, I have put on 20 kgs which is just awful as you can imagine. I can’t dress how I used to so have had to formulate a new style, which isn’t really me, I just have to go with it. But your words are true. Perhaps I shouldn’t focus just on finding the most slimming clothes I can find, but rather find clothes that I enjoy on myself, regardless of weight. It’s an interesting topic.

    • Oh Petra definitely. For years I fought everything about myself…then one day I realised I just needed to work with what I have now. Sometimes I will be heavier than I’m comfortable with, BUT I can’t allow that to dull my sparkle and change what I love. Honestly, as soon as I relaxed and accepted who I am today, everything somehow fitted into place in my head. Wear anything that makes you smile and fills you with confidence and happiness I say. xx
      P.S. Just so you know…I am at the heaviest weight I have been my entire life. I’m even heavier than when I gave birth to my daughter – but I’m longer focusing on what the scales say, I’m just enjoying the here and now xx

  • Just gorgeous Bev. I so wish I was there to meet you and all the lovely ladies. V x

    • It was a whole heap of fun and smiles V – you would have loved it! Thanks for the love sweetness xx
      PS. are you going to Problogger?

  • Lisa Mckenzie

    • Thanks so much my gorgeous friend.These pants just had to be in my life – no question, so glad you like them.
      Instagram is by far my favourite place to hang out, so many beautiful women, with huge hearts, spreading love and encouragement. Chuffed to hear you’re a risk taker too…a bit of fashion fun never hurt anyone! Mwah xxx
