FLUFFY JUMPER & CHECKED JEANS

Top - Miss Selfridge, Jeans - Topshop, Boots - Boohoo, Rings - Pandora

I definitely decided to wear this jumper on Easter Sunday because it made me feel like a fluffy chick.. there's nothing wrong with getting a bit Easter inspired with clothes right?! If I'd had a pair of those fabulous lace bunny ears then I'd have definitely have popped them on. Instead, I'm a hatchling in checked trousers.

Onto those trousers. You know how I went on about finding a Topshop Joni Jean dupe the other day? Well I did.. but then I caved and bought this checked pair anyway. Logic was never my thing. To be fair, I hadn't actually found a dupe for this checked print.. I say 'hadn't' as I have since seen a Primark pair doing the rounds. Drat & double drat. All the same, I'd still probably have bought these. They're a nice material, do all that sucky-in business that I like & I know I'll wear them to death.

I've added the little OOTD video that goes with in for those of you reading who fancy a gander at me almost getting blown away whilst trying

MOM JEANS & A SATCHEL

Scrunchie - c/o Pretty Twisted, Turtle Neck - Zara, Coat - H&M, Jeans - Topshop, Boots - Dr. Martens, Bag - Missguided

You know when you're like 'ooh I really like my hair like this', then you see a picture of yourself and your thoughts turn to 'I look stupid'. It was one of those days. I do indeedy love this little scrunchie, but perhaps I'd be better sticking to a high pony tail. I'm thinking my head shape just isn't cut out for a 90s up-do like this.. OW POOK!

Did I really just ramble on about my hair/head for a paragraph? Aside from that minor issue, I like what I'm wearing today. I've recently got back into wearing jeans for lazy outfits - the kind where minimal thought goes into what you're wearing. For an extra does of lazy outfit choosing, I went for a turtle neck. I promise, this is going to be my last turtle neck outfit of this A/W. Okay, I probably can't stick to that promise. In my defence, it was a wee bit chilly.. that sunshine didn't last long did it?!

HIGH WAISTED JEANS

Hat - H&M, Choker - eBay, Necklace - c/o Pretty Twisted, Jeans - Missguided, Boots - Boohoo

Summer is on it's way, which means I'm back in one of my favourite combos.. a crop top & something high waisted. It doesn't matter if it's a pair of shorts, a little skirt or jeans like above,  if it rides up high on my waist then I'm going to love it.

The pair I'm wearing today are newly acquired (that sounds better than purchased, it implies I didn't actually have an online spending splurge & they in fact just came into my life like fairy magic). I've been lusting after the Topshop Joni Jeans for a good while now, wanting to satisfy all my needs for a high waisted, wardrobe basic. However, the £36 price tag just kept putting me off. I know they do indeed appear to be lovely & decent quality, but I just think it's quite a lot of money for something so plain. Anyhoo, Missguided came up with the goods in the form of their Brigitte Disco Fits for £24.99. This pair are a little bit stiffer than the Joni Jean (a plus for sucking in any jiggly bits) and were a tiny bit long on my stubby legs but I do think they're quite a good dupe!

UNDIES & ACCESSORIES: STYLING UP WITH WONDERBRA

Wonderbra (Basso & Brooke Range), Headband - Primark, Bracelet - Accessorize, Watch - c/o Daniel Wellington, Shoes - Topshop

I guess it could be construed a tad weird posting about how to 'dress up' undies on here. However, I'm   not necessarily saying this is at all for the benefit of your other half. I'm more thinking for those days when you've treated yourself to some mega pretty undies, and feel that you're wasting them by tucking them up in jeans and a t-shirt. So anyhoo, I thought I'd do a bit of an 'accessorising up' post.. the sort of bits & bobs that I'd pick to go with an extra special underwear day. 

And yep, this evidently isn't the full outfit.. well, unless you're just having a day bopping about to naff pop music in your room (I never do that.. ). For me, I'd probably add a black maxi and just button up the shirt a bit.. but then maybe I'd swap it for white skinny jeans for a sunny day?! You get my drift.. it's all about mixing & matching with whatever you've got in your wardrobe. Why not have your undies as the starting point?!
