OOTD: accidental hair and peg legs...

Hello! You might have noticed I've been sporting a red mop of late, but the joy of red hair is that it washed out within about 2 washes (well it does on me anyway) so yesterday I decided to strip the colour out with one of those colour strip kits....

Having previously bleached my hair, it kind of of accidentally came out a dark blonde type colour, so instead of dying it brown as I had intended I thought I'd just stick with this for a while... Maybe?

I was only popping out to do a few jobs yesterday and with the weather picking up I wore my new ASOS jersey peg leg trousers...

I wore.... Denim Jacket - South (Past Season)// Blouse - Dorothy Perkins (Past Season)// Trousers - ASOS Curve// Pumps - New Look

You can't really see them all that well in the pics, but they are a soft lightweight jersey with turn ups to the bottom and on me (5'7") they are just above the ankle. They're quite high waisted which makes them great for tucking a top into. My only complaint would be that after about an hour, you already start to get baggy knees, it doesn't look terrible, it kind of makes them look a bit more MC Hammer, but it's ok, it's a look I can pull it off! Ha ha!

Has anyone tried the polka dot ones in these? I'd love to know if they're are the same material?

  1. The Polka dot are the exact same hun. Go baggy at the knees after a hour or so. It doesn't look terrible tho :) x

  2. I have the polka dot ones and I love them, I actually spent most of my weekend in them. I don't seem to have the baggy knees but maybe that's because I sized down to a 20

  6. Love the look of these, but it annoying that they go baggy quickly. Maybe I'll size down if I get them.

  7. I'm really wanting a pair of just above ankle trousers, so I can wear them with heels. I just feel so uncomfortable in them though, these sound comfy though.
