Disco Pants and Brooklyn Tee | OOTD

Brooklyn Tee £15 | Disco Pants £30 | White Pimsolls £15 - All River Island 

Hi lovely ladies, what a week its been! First of all I would love to say a huge thank you to those of you who commented or got in touch from my last blog post 'Be Beautiful, Be You' the response was quite overwhelming and I am so happy that the post popped some positive beauty love into your life - If you've not had the chance to have a read yet you can find the link here.

It's been absolutely forever since I last did an OOTD post for you all and this week turned out to be uniform week at work. Anyone else who works in retail will know that getting your new uniform allowance though is the ultimate work perk and is probably the best thing about working in a clothes store...Hello free clothes! When the uniform allowance comes though, you'll be surprised at how stressed we all get trying on and picking out the clothes that have to last us for the next couple of months. Choosing the right outfits can be a little tricky, but I managed to pick up some good bits and thought I would showcase a few of them in a OOTD post. We're aloud to pick up one pair of bottoms and I was ever so tempted to get a pair of high-waisted denim shorts, but having said that I must be the only beauty blogger not to get my hands on a pair of disco pants... Well not anymore! River Island have had their own version of the disco pant out for ages now and I just never got around to treating myself to a pair. Well as soon as I tired them on, I knew I had to have them in my wardrobe and can completely see why everyone loves them so much.   When it comes to bottoms I float between a size 6 or 8, just depending on where I shop. As most of you are aware the Disco Pant craze started with the American Apparel pair which are a whopping £75, but if your looking for something more affordable then these ones from River Island are a bit of a bargain at £30. In River Island I am an 8 and found that the size 8 fitted perfectly - So if your thinking about getting a pair I would definitely go with your usual size, don't feel the need to go up a size because they are tight fitting. 

You can see from the pictures that the disco pant is a shiny, high-wasited thick material which is somewhere in-between a legging and pant. As the pants are very figure hugging, I always thought that they would be one of those pants would be restricted and uncomfortable to wear, but much to my surprise they turned out to be one of the most comfortable things I have ever worn. As I'm not much of a curvy girl, it's really nice to be able to wear something that shows off your shape and extenuate the little curves that I do have. One thing I love about these Disco Pants more than ever is the fact that they are so versatile and you really can take them from day to evening. In the photos above, I've paired them with a loose oversized tee for a causal day look, but to dress it up a little bit I could tuck the tee in to show of the disco pants a little bit more (and my figure). If I was going out for dinner or wanted to dress up a little more, I would pair the disco pants with some glam heels and a lovely little blouse tucked into them - You really can pair anything with these, I've fallen in love with them so much in a short space of time that I'm already having a look at getting different colours for more outfits - I'm thinking red, which will be perfect for nights out on the town.  Overall I love them and am just so shocked that I've taken forever to get a pair.

If your loving Disco Pants as much as me I would love to know what your favourite thing to pair them is.

Lot's of Love
