High Waist Heaven

Hi guys! It's Saturday night and I am staying in with a Pretty Woman DVD, tasty treats and a Google Reader (RIP) full of Tumblr posts to space-bar through while gossiping with my housemate. We have been shopping all day and I picked up some strappy sandals, a nude maxi skirt, a crochet dress and a neon sports bra for bargaineous prices at New Look and H&M. Yay!

I've been wanting to show you my 'daily' look which I've been wearing basically all the time to work - high waisted skinny jeans and ankle strap pointed heels; these are from ASOS. I work in an office where there is no dress code so this won't be deemed office-wear traditionally but wearing trousers/pants and small heels makes me feel pulled together and ready for the day ahead. I've tried all manner of high waisted jeans and the River Island tube pants are my favourites because the denim is stiffer rather than elasticated so there is a smoother, matte finish so they fit without being stretched to fit. I found the Topshop Joni jeans were too big in the waist and too tight elsewhere or vice versa, and the AA Easy Jean were again too stretchy, but that's just me. As a rule, Topshop trousers rarely fit me very well - some shops have certain standard shapes that they size all their clothing to and Topshop just doesn't suit me argh! Also I haven't had a haircut since October seriously and my hair is getting really long! I was contemplating dying the tips blonde for fun...

I repainted my nails white too as the American Apparel green was just not the shade I wanted it to be; maybe I had too many coats. White is a new classic and makes all jewellery look great, but next time I'm thinking of going matte red. My ring is from H&M and the hand chain was £1 in a New Look sale. Never pass by a jewellery sale!

Sunshine has arrived! I've had a huge dose of vitamin D this weekend and wish it wouldn't end. I wish you could buy time! We had a sunny Sunday in a pub garden and then a few hours lying in the park, and now we are sitting in the garden being accosted by local kitties. After snapping up a dress at 1am last time, I was all over the latest Rihanna for River Island collection and forgoed my Saturday lie in for this matching two piece! An off shoulder crop top? Hello my life! And the matching shorts are light and breezy, almost like a skater skirt. The sea foam green looks great with a (fake) olive tan and if I was after a treat, I would totally snap up the black version.

I got some new mini square nails after a few weeks of really long stiletto nails that may have posed a health hazard if I poked myself in the eye, but I'm not so sure about the green! They are the American Apparel neon shade but they look more like gunge than neon in my opinion! I wish I had got neon yellow so maybe I'll repaint them! I hope you had a long weekend, or if you are a lucky student that your summer has started!
