Everyday Spring Hint of Pastel Casual Outfit - Mostly From Matalan!







Top - Matalan (in the sale for £4!)
Jeans - Matalan (£16 - see this post for link to jeans website)
Belt - Primark
Necklace - eBay
Shoes - Vans
Lipstick - 17 Lasting Fix in Dreamy

   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!

  2. I love Matalan! It's so cheap and they always have lush stuff in!
    Hate it when jeans expand at the waist! No matter what size I get they always end up massive after a few washes. These are such a pretty colour though xxx
