More Ways to Style Those Grey & Red Tartan Trousers

Check trousers, red t-shirt & burgundy heels
Ahhhhh, spring. It was nice while it lasted…! These were taken in the golden hour of one of our lovely warm days last week when I dared to bare my ankles in my fierce pointed burgundy heels. (We’re back to cold wet grey days now of course.) I had the genius idea of wearing them with my  – why hadn’t I thought of that before?! I think they were made for each other. This is quite a relaxed weekend outfit, and I know the heels don’t exactly fit that description, but when we’re not doing any walking to anywhere in particular then I like to potter around in the heels because they look, well, so pretty. I’m sure I’m not the only one!

I like to use the excuse that I’m “breaking them in” when I wear them round the house. Which is kind of true. It’s just that I’ve been breaking in some of my heels that way for years…

What about you – do you like to potter around the house in heels when you get a chance?

    Fun look. But no, I never potter around on heels in my free time. Poor husband of mine… buys me lots of nice clothes and shoes which I never wear around the house. So he hardly sees me in full force. Fortunately he has the address of my blog hahaha.

    Okay, there is no way I could pull off this look but you look stunning. So effortlessly cool and relaxed, but quite dressy at the same time and not frumpy at all. The heels, again, I would never think to try – but they look gorgeous on you. I think you must just colour coordinate really well. Rosemary x

    As it happens, dear Catherine, my problem is that I like to wear my heels even when I DO have some walking to do…and yesterday I ended up paying the price: I tripped and broke my foot!! I am devastated that I'm not going to be able to do outfit posts for the foreseeable future; crutches and a purple cast do not a pretty fashion picture make!! At least I can live vicariously through my blogger friends…I am loving your strappy burgundy shoes and the way they add a feminine element to this slouchy look!!

    Great outfit, you look so joyful and fresh. Love the trousers and boots the most.

    Ahhh, I've been looking forward to this post! Love the red hues in this outfit. I have to practice wearing heels at home before I can wear them out (broken foot years ago = wobbly in heels now) lol. I'm a liability in anything over three inches these days x

    awesome shoes, I love the tartan pants. I wear my shoes around the house all the time, drives Kent crazy.
    (breaking them in, getting use to the heel, whatever excuse I can think of)

    The whole outfit is absolutely lovely, I love that your outfit is so different from so many other outfits, I love your gorgeous pants and also how the colors of the outfit blend with the colors of your hair and skin complexion. Wish you a nice week ahead darling! <3 xoxo

    Your heels are gorgeous, Catherine, love the style and the colour!
    Does your hair look lighter because of the sunlight?

    I never ever wear heels, even inside! They make me hate life so much! 😀 I do like platforms though 😀
    You look fantastic! If I ever wore a pair of heels, yours would be the choice, they're spectacular! Love the high waist pants and the fancy belt, just gorgeous ^_^

    Ok, that is a fabulous outfit! And while I own so, so, so many gorgeous heels, as soon as I'm home I can't wait to put on my fluffy slippers.

    Love the shoes Catherine, I love pointy heels and the best way to break them in is to wear them around the house….why not…any excuse to wear them right?? 🙂

    Fabulous shoes, Catherine.
    Much love.

    They look fabulous with your trousers, a perfect match indeed. Yes I to am a walk round the house in heels kind of girl. Life's too short to not wear what you love.
