Drop hem and Discos: Outfit Post

Hello Lovelies!

What with it being my birthday and christmas last month I didn't actually get round to showing you any normal outfits and seeing as I picked up some nice new things from Topshop last weekend (shown here in my House of Fraser haul) I thought it might be nice to show you how I wore a couple of them to uni yesterday, along with my new favourite hair style...

 Sweater Topshop
Disco Pants | American Apparel 
Socks | Topshop
Necklace | Dorothy Perkins
Bracelets | Links of London/ Pandora
Lips | Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in 'Lovesick'
Nails | Max Factor Nailfinity in 'Disco Pink'
Huge top knot | My own creation with the help of hairspray

 This Topshop drop hem boucle sweater that I bought on Saturday has already become one of my favourite items of clothing as the cut of it is so unique and flattering (that's right ladies, you don't have to get your bum out in those see through leggings any longer!), it's a gorgeous wintry colour and also goes with so many different bottoms. I teamed it with my disco pants yesterday as I wanted bottoms that were a little more dressy and fitting to contrast the casual bagginess of the top. I also added my trusty spiked Dorothy Perkins necklace to jazz it up a bit, as well as bright pink lips and nails courtesy of my new favourite Revlon Kissable Balm Stain and a Max Factor neon pink nail polish. I did wear this outfit with my Next boots when I left the house but kept them off in the photos to show you my cute new frilly topped socks. I only picked up one pair of these from Topshop at the weekend but am planning to go back for more colours tomorrow and make use of the 3 for £8 offer they have on as I can see these becoming my staple socks. I know, pretty big exciting stuff... As for the hair, I've recently discovered the amazing fact that my locks are long enough to create a nice big top knot without the aid of a hair donut. Now that is exciting stuff! I think just using a band and curby grips instead of a donut gives the bun a bigger but more wearable, less structured look that I love and still lasts all day. I might do a tutorial on it if you're interested?

I've just had yet another day of doing uni worked mixed with laughing at the ridiculousness of daytime tele with my house mate Rosie. She introduced me to 'most haunted' this lunchtime and needless to say work was postponed for a while hahaa but tonight we're off to have a well earned break and watch Life of Pi at the cinema. Have any of you seen it already? Have a wonderful night whatever your plans are!

Love Meg

  23. So jealous of your AA disco pants! Love your comment about daytime TV, Most Haunted is way too entertaining until your scepticism kicks in and you're like 'wait, no, that wasn't an orb, that was DUST!' :) xx
