The photo of these shorts has been circulating on Tumblr for a few days and they have been tracked down to a new American Apparel pair. Hello beauties! I don't have a particularly short body and I have a definite booty so high waisted things never sit very high on me, but American Apparel has the highest of high waisted bottoms out there. My Riding Pants definitely hit above my belly button! So I'm hoping these Bull Shorts will have a great fit and I love the chunky cuff too.
For some reason I've gone off skirts for the moment as dare I say it, I'm swaying from my girly looks to something hopefully a little more chic and grown up! Still of course with some nail gems and sugary phone cases thrown in, but a little more streamlined maybe. We'll see! I'm not wearing my skater skirts mostly because I'm not a fan of tights in spring and at the moment it's too chilly to go bare legged. At the moment I'm living in high waisted jeggings and I would only wear these shorts with bare legs too, but next week a heat wave is coming right?! We'll also see! Motel shorts are pretty high waisted too but I think American Apparel go the each inch, and it's one of those shops where everything fits me. I don't have as much luck with Arcadia!
I was told there is a 20% off night in the Bristol AA store on Friday when I was in there this Saturday comparing Topshop's Joni Jeans with their Easy Jean, but I was planning on travelling home straight from work. I will wait to see if AA will release an online code for the bank holiday and maybe snap them up then after payday! I know they will be fab quality and these are the only things on my fashion wishlist at the moment!
Fashion week is approaching and so is a sudden new urge to shop, shop, shop! I think it's all hormonal as some weeks I'm obsessed with cleaning and sorting, and sometimes I just want a bunch of new things instantly. I'm obsessed with crop tops for every season so this New Look one is off shoulder perfection; yes I am signing up to off-shoulder-obsessed-anonymous meetings soon! I've never tried a frilled skirt but the way this Miss Selfridge skirt is half bodycon and half peplum seems a winner. I haven't wore my bargain Zara ankle strap heels yet but these with spikes are equally as beautiful.
I want some elaborate earrings ASAP and these ASOS cuties are right up my street, but I'm not keen on ordering online though so I expect there is something similar in H&M. A feathered clutch is something I would SO snap up right now but I'm looking for the perfect one, and this Miss Selfridge beauty has a chain strap too, so I'm considering getting it in my life. And lastly, I have all the Gucci perfumes and Gucci by Gucci is my favourite for a night out, so I really want to try Gucci Premiére. Maybe a Valentine's present to myself?
Hi guys! I'm going to omit the obligatory 2012 summary post as quite frankly it was a year that life was a rollercoaster off a cliff! My only resolution is to chill out as things are so much better and this involves wearing chic, simple and form-fitting items. Wanting these Topshop items for a long Monday tomorrow!

I think I mentioned I'm going to Madrid soon! You know I was dying to book a holiday and after trawling through websites for weeks trying to first find a good Easter deal, we found a cheapie trip to Madrid and plan to partypartyparty!! I have saved my pennies this month to hit the shops just before and get a new outfit for each night, most of which will probably be Motel! Have you seen our new arrivals? An insider note: the new Aztec print is selling extra quickly and won't be replenished for a few weeks so get it while you can!! I have my eye on maybe the Aztec Kimmy Skirt and I loooove the new Tropical Butterfly Print - it reminds me of last year's floral print that I wore to death.
Then I had a cruise around Nasty Gal, which I don't really considering seriously buying from as in the past everything I've ordered has been cheapie China quality and I've heard horrific customs stories. However I love everything bright and neon!!! I'll try and take no little black dresses away as this holiday is really to start off the summer.
I'd have to try on the white Reverse Dress as it looks like a top on the ASOS model but she is 5'10! Any light coloured dresses ring huge alarm bells with me though as someone would definitely spill something on you.
Then there's some wedges from New Look which seem necessary as wedges always remind me of summer! My friends and I all chipped in for one hold suitcase just for shoes and hair products haha! The feather print nude ones are only £25 and come in more colours, I must find them in store ASAP.
I just need to find a cute bag now as I love clutches but they scare me to death! Actually on the weekend I somehow removed the chain strap from my bag and left it behind so had to take it as a clutch bag and it's a miracle I hung onto it all night!! I also wore my Litas and they're slightly more distressed now shall we say, but still fabulous! Isn't it funny how the more we spend on something, the less we use it? When you think about it, it doesn't really make sense! If you have been to Madrid, please tell me your party tips!
