After Eight: I'm loving Black and Gold

For evening wear you would normally find me in an LBD, however just before Christmas I bought some new black trousers, I love the fit so much, I've started to wear these on occasions you would normally see me in a dress.  Christmas day and New Year's Eve are two examples of this!

This weekend I went out for dinner at a lovely Italian restaurant in Berkhamsted called ZAZA - the food was amazing, I highly recommend and will definitely be going back.  Now dinner with my gorgeous hubby would normally call for a dress - however I had a half an hour that day in River Island and it's amazing what a girl can treat herself too in such a small amount of time!

I'm still loving the black and gold for an evening look, and it was really nice to feel so glommed up and yet it was quite a relaxed evening look for dinner.  Here is the Instagram selfie that I took that evening:




I'm attending a book launch in London in the next few weeks for a very dear family friend - so I think this outfit will be perfect for that.

I bought these trousers before Christmas, they fit so well - a tad more expensive than I would usually spend on trousers, but I simply love them… I would however change one thing about them, and that's the large gold side-zip - I have no idea why they didn't make that more discreet?
