    My last paycheck came through on Friday, and It's gone already. Oops.

    Grey baxter jeans from Topshop, they're kind of patchy and crinkly. I love them.

    got a pair of blue skinny jeans from the GAP which fit perfectly - so gutted I can't find nice (and affordable) grey ones elsewhere. I tried a pair of Topshop ones which were okaaaaay and i managed to fit into the 10 which was but they were the super skinny/spray on type and I don't really think my legs are skinny enough for jeans like that to look hot.

    Really fancy a pair of flats from faith (cant get the site to work atm) but dunnnnooo if I should.

    Mini, my legs are huge and I still wear really tight jeans unless they're grossly misshappen or something I don't think it really matters how tight they are (aslong as there's no muffin top going on!)

    I really don't like jeans which aren't fitted because they make my legs look even bigger imo.

    I took over £60s worth of stuff back today and just popped into H&M and got a long top/dress; it's charcoal coloured with a scoop neck and long sleeves. I also picked up another cutwork neckline black vest but I still have to try it on and if it doesn't fit nicely I'll take it back and get one of the cable knit jumpers I liked

    hey! Nah, I think it's more to do with the dimensions (height etc) of my legs and jeans - my friend's about a size 14 and wears skinnies but she's about your height and they look better on her than they do me - the GAP jeans dont hug the calves as much, but hug the bum + thighs which looks nicer on me than the topshop ones do.

    Anyway, my Oasis skirt came and I love it but dunno if it's slightly too short at the front (it's fine round the sides and the back). I'll wear it with thick tights. I may just keep it and wear my coat over so I don't fret whilst walking down the street. Pics attached.

    I have a fancy dinner tonight - excited about getting dressed up esp. as there are quite a few hotties amongst the grads...not that they'd pay attention to me but my confidence is up so much at my new uni so I live in hoppppeeeee!
    I love the skirt, looks really pretty on you

    I really want to be down to a 14 by the end of this academic year.

    The print is pretty but I'm not sure about the shape :/ it kinda looks like it's riding up or something. Hot legs though mini :love:

    That's great that you've got more confidence there's no reason for you not to missy! Good luck with the hot blokes and I'm sure you'll look fab :grin:
