Relaxed sunday look: Agnes trousers by J Brand

After just under four months, it's finally happened: Monsieur Baby has totally accepted his routine and he has become a very happy little munchkin, doing his naps and feeding pretty much at the times we want him to. What this means is that hubby dearest and I have regained some control over our lives, and more specifically I get to go shopping occasionally on saturday afternoons again! Hurray!! (In the interest of full disclosure I have to admit that this isn't necessarily what hubby dearest envisaged for when the little one would be more manageable, but I think he is indulging me for the time being, conscious that I'm confined to nappy valley all week).

Yesterday we hit the southern end of Sloane Street and the Duke of York square, and I found some spring summer additions, including these gorgeous Agnes trousers by J Brand, in westpoint (ie chocolate brown). Like the Houlihans, they are in soft light twill with just the right amount of stretch, however they have a more streamlined look as they come without the
side pockets, making them a slightly more polished and less off-duty trouser. I'd recommend going one size down from your normal jean size as they run a little loose and the twill stretches after a few washes.

I wore them today with an open knit cotton sweater by Massimo Duti, my white Converse sneakers, and a Zara camo scarf to keep warm. No handbag as we were just popping over to Pain Quotidien for breakfast.
