How I Style: MOM Shorts #1

I love how denim shorts look in the summer, but most of the time when I try on a pair of denim shorts, they're just not flattering on me at all. Normally they are far too short for my liking. I don't want to walk around with my bum cheeks hanging out ha. 

That's where the 'MOM' shorts come in. Similar to the MOM jean, they are a high-waisted fit, and are slightly longer than a regular pair of denim shorts. I picked this pair as I really like the distressed denim look. 

Today I've styled them in quite a grungy way, with a grey tee and black ankle boots. I love wearing this thick black belt with this look as it pulls it all together. 

I love this look, Id wear it at the weekend, or for going to a concert.

Easter Nails ‐ Models Own Speckled Eggs Nail Polish

When I saw these new Nail Polishes from Models Own I thought they were so cute. They look just like Mini Eggs, right? I thought I'd share my two favourite colours from the collection. I'll certainly be wearing them on my nails on Easter Sunday! 

They go on fairly sheer with the first coat, but the second coat makes the base coat opaque. I didn't apply a topcoat, and they lasted a day or so without any major chips, which is fairly good for me. For some reason nail polish just doesn't last on me. 



So If you're looking for something fun for your nails this Easter, why not check there out!

Monday Wishlist #9

1. New Look Denim Tunic Dress: I really like the acid wash and the tunic shape of this dress. You could easily add a belt to it if you wanted to draw more attention to your waist. I'd wear it with tights and a pair of ankle boots now, and then on warmer days I'd throw it on with a pair flip flops. Pairing it with a denim jacket would check off the double denim trend. 

2. River Island Abstract Print Waterfall Jacket: I don't know what it is, but I always fall for these types of jackets which have contrasting sleeves. I love me some a statement jacket! I also really like the longer length of this jacket, much chicer than a cropped jacket, and more flattering on my body shape. 

3. Topshop Girl Lace Hem Tee: Slogan tees are everywhere on the High Street right now, but a lot of the slogans are too tacky/cheesey for me. I like that this tee just says 'girl'. Simple. The lace hem makes the tee a little more feminine and interesting. 

4. Topshop Butterfly Fabric Headband: Another obsession of mine, insects! This headband will look so cute in the summer with curly hair and a pretty floral dress.
