Hand-Me-Downs

A few months ago my dear Nan had a clear out and sweetly thought of me in the process, putting aside a huge pile of clothes to rummage through. I was delighted by the vintage pieces, a fleecy white peacoat from her teenage years, a knitted green pullover my great-gran made for my dad when he was a young boy and a few belt buckles from my Grandad's time in the royal marines. Sentimental treasures that I can pull into my own personal style, and give a new lease of life to, something my Nan was so very happy about. My favourite hand-me-down of all has to be these plaid trousers, I couldn't wait to style these babies up as I've been crushing over anything plaid recently. Despite the short length (hence the awkward turn ups) they fit perfectly around my waist, just snug enough with a high waist keeping me tucked in.

It's not often that I wear trousers, they're just not as appealing as others bottoms out there so surprised myself with my bold fashion bravery haha. This may actually be the start of a trouser love affair. What do you think of my vintage hand-me-downs? Have you fallen for the plaid/ heritage trend?
