I Want it Wednesday – Cute Enough to Eat

Lacoste Mid L!VE range - pastel trainers

If my mint jeans outfit last week hadn’t tipped you off, I’m a total sucker for pastels. Plus, if Chuck Bass says it’s right, who’s to argue? So I’m loving that this SS candy-coloured everything is huge. First on my pastel necessities list are Lacoste’s ice cream toned trainers – amazing for dressing down a winter outfit while it’s still cold out and then wearing with tiny shorts and fringed tees in summer. The yellow ones are my current favourite. If the sun ever decides to show it’s face again here in the UK then they’ll also look amazing with a tan.

Republic Pink Ombre Jeans

Then we have these amazing pink ombre jeans from Republic. I’ve been wanting faded pink jeans for ages but I love the ombre effect on these, it’s quirky and would look so good with oversized tees and colourful wedges.

Topshop Pastel Mint Green Bag

And finally I had to share this pale, mint green bag from Topshop. Cute as a button and perfect for hazy summer days swanning around a park in tiny denim cut offs, a crop top and strappy sandals.

Fell in love with these mint jeans when afro-mazing blogger Prince Cassius featured them on his blog. They feel a bit summery so I haven’t worn them much but as the weather gets better I doubt I’ll be out of them much. I am now after a rainbow of coloured jeans – what’s your favourite jeans colour? I think I’ll be looking for a purple or yellow next.

A Weekend with Wonderbra

Bella Sorella - Tartan Harem Pants

Last month I won a Facebook competition with Unmissable and Wonderbra, so me and one of my best friends got to have an awesome weekend of girly treats all for free! We stayed overnight in the lovely Cavendish hotel (full English breakfast anyone?) and spent Saturday having a makeover at TOWIE’s Lydia Bright’s store Bella Sorella (I got the tartan harem pants in the photo above as well as two a jacket I’ll be featuring in an outfit post soon) before heading over to Mahiki for a lot of drinking and a lot of rugby men (it was the Saracens’ Christmas party). Oh, and we were chauffeur-driven everywhere. Yep, we were truly spoilt. Of course I forgot my camera, so I didn’t manage to get any pictures over the weekend, but here’s a video Wonderbra made while we were at Lydia’s shop:

If I could, I’d live in leather trousers. They add coolness to any outfit, and I love pairing them with tees and more feminine textures like this Supertrash silk top. Real leather is also great in any season as it’s surprisingly cooling in hot temperatures and warming in winter, so although they’re pricey they are a good investment. I scored these amazing Ted Baker real leather and jersey trousers for £30 in an amazing Selfridges sale last year. Insane!

Merry Christmas!

Fashion Merry Christmas

I’m writing this post in my Christmas pyjamas and long red socks with baubles on, which can only mean one thing – it’s Christmas! I’m so excited about opening our little bundle of presents, having a big fat roast dinner (pigs in blankets ftw) and then sitting around with the family watching children’s films and eating lots of chocolate. I hope you all have a fantastic day and here’s a big Merry Christmas from me and Callum at girlinthelens! See you in the New Year 🙂

I Want it Wednesday – Balmain Leather Trousers

Balmain Leather Trouserssource: http://www.balmain.com/

God they’re amazing. I have been searching for a high street alternative for years but nothing beats the look and feel of real leather stretched over skin. I did find a great pair of faux leather trousers from H&M last year (similar to these ones out now), but they ripped and I haven’t been able to get another pair as I’m now inbetween sizes. Please tell me if you know where I can get some cheap Balmain-esque alternatives! I will be buying a real pair though when I start making the monies … but that might be a while!

Outfit: Suede and Scallops, Plus Levi’s New Curve ID Jeans

Suede & Scallops Outfit

Suede & Scallops OutfitSuede & Scallops Outfittop: ASOS, jacket: Zara, jeans: Levi’s, bag: Urban Outfitters

So obsessed with Urban Outfitters right now. So much so that I dare not enter those glass doors for fear of eternal poverty. But I did get this gorgeous suede bag after deliberating which one to get in an earlier blog post. Bit worried about colour transfer though (hence the tags are still on) so just got to check that with them first. These jeans are Levi’s new Curve ID range that are made to fit three types of body shape. I was a little worried at first as they feel so tight when they go on but then I realised it was only because all my other jeans don’t fit properly!

Ps. Apologies for looking so tired and for taking pics indoors lately. I was ill last week and I’m still feeling really run down. Will get back to taking pictures outside – the light is so much better!
