I dream of jeans


Literally. Much to my shock and horror last week, my most favourite pair of jeans in the whole world (a pair of navy Mango skinnies circa 2010) shuffled off their mortal coil. And by that I mean they ran in the wash. Upon closer inspection of my jeans collection, I noticed that the only other pairs were a) too small b) maternity and c) the most awesomest boyfriend jeans I ever did see (thank god for small mercies).

As a result of this poor showing, I stalked ASOS for a good er, 30 minutes to find a new pair that ticked all my proverbial jeans boxes. I came across a supremely bargainous pair from Only. I liked the patchy, distressed look, the fact that they were skinny, and I had a sneaking suspicion that they were the type that held you in, if you know what I mean. And I was right! There’s a tiny bit of give in them, but it’s mostly major suctioning action.

While I was browsing I also bought a gorgeous grey sweater with stars on the elbows and a delicious wool sweater from Vero Moda (which you can see a bit of above) for 12 quid! I swear it was the best virtual shopping experience I’ve had in a long time. The sweater keeps selling out FYI, but seems to be back in stock again a few hours later.

That’s all my shopping news for now! Do you have any new amazing purchases you’d like to share? I’m on a bit of a shopping roll at the moment… eek!

    These are really nice Simone! I’ve just ordered a coat from Asos, looking forward to it arriving as it is chilly here in the UK now x

      Oh to be able to order a coat and actually wear it! So jealous! It never gets cold enough here for that. I’m still powering through with the rest of my A/W wardrobe though. It’s winter in my head, and that’s all that matters! 🙂

    Hi Simone

    Those jeans look FAB! I’ve got a quick question……I’m thinking of buying the same style, but have been put off as the product description states that they are “low rise”.
    That style is ok if you’ve got a flat stomach (which I certainly don’t have lol!!). I usually buy mid or high rise jeans – better at holding the flab in 🙂
    Are they really low rise? Or do you think They are more mid rise!

      Hi Sita! I would say they are mid rise. To give you an idea, they sit just above my hips and just below my belly button. I can’t deal with low rise as I feel like I hang out over them, haha! 🙂
