Sorry for not posting over the past few days, I'm bogged down in uni work. Can't really complain though, considering I have and extra day to do it today - good old leap year!
Anyhow, just a little spring-suitable casual outfit. I'm not brave enough yet to wear this few layers out, considering the temperature here! But just felt like showing off these gorgeous new jeans that I picked up in Matalan after browsing the web for some pastel bargains (mentioned in this post). They are full length but I've rolled them up here and paired them with a loose, slightly sheer top and some Vans with little strawberries all over (they're dead cute!).
I'm motivating myself to get some colour into my wardrobe this spring / summer - as I'm sucker for black or neutral colours. So I thought these jeans would be a good start considering the dreary weather in England 80% of the time!
I'll give a quick mention about my thoughts on these jeans. I tried on and 8 and a 10 and purchased the size 10 pair as they were more comfortable. Now I'm regretting not getting the 8, as I didn't realise how elasticated these are, meaning the waist is becoming looser with each wear - argh! I was walking around in them at uni on Monday and they were threatening to end up around my ankles... I'll just have to wear a belt with them all the time. I guess you can't expect the fit and cut to be mind-blowing for £16. Regardless, I'm happy with them. I guess they will only be a seasonal purchase anyway so I'm not hugely bothered.
A few of you have asked about my hair - not sure if you mean in terms of cut / colour / maintenance!? But I'll do a post soon to cover all of that!
