i haven't really done these trousers justice in today's post. i bagged them for £15.99 a couple of weeks ago and since then i barely have been out of them! they go with so much i love love love 'em. i think they are a great staple piece as they are super versatile; can be dress up or down, and are able to worn to fit each of our own sense of style. in other news non-trouser related i finally will be getting my haircut this week - what a relief! can you believe it's been seven weeks already since i braved and got the chop? and now i want to go that little bit shorter. i wish my sunday was being spent as a lazy day instead of being at work but hey-ho every penny matters at the moment. i'm skint, payday can't come sooner. anyway hope you like it, let me know. and also if you haven't go check out fridays post. i didn't really get many comments on it, and i always recognise all you regulars who usually do and i miss you guys!
