Hello my lovelies!
A rarity on the blog today...it's not often I wear jeans. In fact, I hardly own any - I have my high-waisted Miss Selfridge ones, a pair of pink ones from DP that are simply too big, and now these.
They're the Jamie jeans from Topshop, except I refused to pay Topshop prices and found these for about £7 on eBay. I figure jeans are such odd garments on me, I have yet to find any that fit perfectly and don't fall down after a few minutes' wear, so there's no point in spending a fortune on them! These are lovely and soft and properly skinny (isn't it hard to find proper skinny jeans??) so they almost feel like leggings. They are a little large around the waist though, which is irritating as it means I have the unattractive belt "lump". I'm not brave enough to try the size 12s yet though, think I might need a few more sit-ups before that happens!
The one thing that irks me with jeans is what style top to choose! I think this H&M t-shirt might be a little clingy, but anything looser makes me look, well, larger. I have visions of me rocking a Breton stripe top with a nifty little blazer over the top and nude ballet pumps, but as yet I own none of these things, so this outfit will have to occur after some hard-core sale shopping I think!
Looking back at these pictures I really think I need to start wearing heels, my legs look so short! I'd quite happily wear heels to work if I didn't have the half hour trek there and back; maybe this is something I need to master in 2012!
How do you style your jeans? Do you prefer to dress them up or dress them down?
