OOTD: Uni celebrations!

Today I went to an Indian restaurant with my family because they wanted to celebrate my grades (cuties). I'm in my second year of a Primary Education degree at university and managed to get a 2:1 for the year - very chuffed with that seeing as I had so much time off due to having glandular fever! So it was time to celebrate with my favourite type of food. 

Stupidly, I wore my high waisted white joni jeans from Topshop, an aztec bralet - Soul cal and a loose camisole from New Look. I say stupidly because I went out in the lightest coloured outfit to eat very brightly coloured food. When will I learn? 

These Joni jeans are my favorite. I love everything possible about them. The cut, length and the fit. It takes a lot for me to be brave and wear white but I've had so many compliments off of them that getting the courage to wear them doesn't seem a big deal anymore. They're also high waisted which I adore. Anything high waisted is a yes from me, it means you can wear all of those tops which are a little too short - buying the joni's seemed to open up my wardrobe options so much! 

I really like the layered look with this, especially all of the colours seeing as the jeans give it a blank canvas to play with. The orange strap is part of a La senza front closure racer back bra which is great to wear with tops without a conventional strap line. 

The Aztec bralet was a piece which sat in my drawer for a good two years before I really made the effort to wear it. It works well under a plain top to save your dignity if it's is a bit too low or a top that has a wide arm hole (is that what it's called? Haha!) and is nicer to wear than a plain old bandeau. 

I also bought two pieces of head jewellery and this really pretty piece came today! It's a bit much just for dinner but I'm really looking forward to wearing it. And they're so so cheap on eBay if you get them from abroad and don't mind waiting!
