Yesterday I had my hair done, it’s a lovely shade of ash blonde that I’m really happy with. I had a trim and a bit of a side fringe cut in as well. Then it was straightened and I was feeling pretty special. So of course I made Hubby take me out for sausages and vegetables {so classy, but he was in work clothes} and grab some pics. I wanted to show off my fab hair before I washed it and ruined it… However under the parking lot light my hair is a lovely shade of brassy gold. Sigh.

BUT I also couldn’t wait to show off these Harlow moto pants and ASOS Curve GEEK CHIC top. I’ve been trying to come up with a reason to wear this t-shirt to work since it arrived. Slogan shirts are an office no no though, so I’d saved it until now. I’m really happy with the material and sizing though, it’s nice to have had a good run with the stuff from ASOS again lately. For a while there, they just couldn’t be counted on.

Then there are these PANTS! I love them and there’s hardly a week when they haven’t been in the wash since they arrived. They are a ponte material with pleather panels at the waistband and at the calves. I’m wearing the size 22 after sending the 20 back. After wearing them for a little while I probably should have kept the 20 for a slimmer fit around my ankles and legs. Just a tip for those looking at them online.

Now you awesome nerds, here are the pics!

  • Love this emsemble! Gorgeous hair – l always feel so fresh after a hairdo!

    • Ooops … ensemble* that is. Shouldn’t try to use big words so early in the morning!! 🙂

    • Thank you muchly. The colour is MUCH nicer out from under the fluro yellow lighting. 😉

    Haha – I bought that shirt in the black, so I am going to strongly support this look. I often look at the shoes at Evans but I’ve been too nervous to order. I guess it seems complicated with widths and size and conversion in the mix.

    • Excellent taste! I didn’t even know they had it in black. Awesome.

      I’m an 11 {fairly standard but I do need some extra width} and I’m wearing the UK8 EEE {super wide}. Maybe you could work from there… I picked these up second hand but pretty much unworn because they were the wrong size for the lady that purchased them.

    I think my wardrobe is living vicariously through you, haha! I wanted to get this top so bad. Living off very little money sucks, but love seeing all your outfits 🙂

    • Haha. Thank you. Happy to do it for you! I’m so grateful that my wardrobe is so heavily supplemented these days, it certainly gives me access to many, many more clothes then if I was buying them myself on a part-time income.


    You are so lovely!

  • Love it. I love you in these casual looks.

    • Thank you Sophie. It’s nice to have the chance to capture more than just my styled up outfits and work clothes. And who doesn’t love a geek tee, right!?

  • Monique

    The pants are amazing!! but pricey 🙁 Are they more like leggings or pants???

    Thanks Mel!!xxxx

    • The material is too thick to be considered leggings and they have a waistband but they stretch and conform like leggings… Does that make sense? And pricey, yes I can’t disagree with you there. They are beautiful though and even with this repeated wear and use no issue with pilling or discolouration yet which my Target ones {similar, no pleather panels or waistband} are. Hope that helps. 🙂

      • Monique

        Thanks Mel! You look great (as always) xx

  • Moni
