The Wide Leg Crop – Denim Edition

Wide Leg Crop Denim cover

Last week, I wrote about my newfound love for a wide leg cropped pair of trousers. This week I’m in the same style, but with this indigo denim pair from trusty Marks & Spencer. They’ve appeared on the blog a couple of times before, and I always seem to style them the same way. The waistband sits at the perfect height for tucking in a fitted tee, or a jersey vest like this one below. Continue reading “The Wide Leg Crop – Denim Edition”

Black and White, Khaki and Denim

Khaki and denim cover

The last time I wore this jacket, I tried to make it a bit summery with a cotton skirt. Today the weather has decided to revert to full on winter mode, so I’ve ditched the cotton and gone for a khaki and denim combo. If you switched up the white boots for DMs or wellies, this is a real festival type look for me. I actually bought this jacket to replace my current festival coat, and I’m whilst I’m excited to take it along to protect myself from the rain, I’m also secretly hoping I don’t really need it! My entire festival wardrobe tends to be a mixture of black, khaki and denim, so this outfit may well come with me to various UK fields over the next few months.  Continue reading “Black and White, Khaki and Denim”

Black and White, Ruffles and Denim

Ruffles cover

One of the big trends to hit the Spring / Summer collections this year is ruffles. As always, the catwalks showed some of the more extreme options on offer – see Marc Jacobs, Gucci and McQueen, to name but a few. There are quite a few more dramatic options on the high street too, but I’m playing it safe to begin with. This top caught my eye on a lunchtime jaunt to Zara. It’s 100% viscose, and has a really nice weight to it making it super swishy and lovely to wear. The ruffles are enough to make a bit of a statement and join in the trend without having to be too brave with my sartorial choices!  Continue reading “Black and White, Ruffles and Denim”

Pink Denim and Maroon (and grey again!)

Pink denim jacket cover

I mentioned a little while ago that I lost my bleach denim jacket on an ill fated trip to the pub in the sunshine. As sad as I was to find it had disappeared, it was an excuse to buy this gorgeous pink replacement from H&M. Well, I say replacement, but I’m definitely planning on finding another light blue denim jacket as well. I’m massively into the pink and red trend that’s everywhere at the moment. Some trends I can admire from a distance, but this faux-pas of clashing colours has me hooked. Today’s outfit is a really subtle nod to that trend, with this pale pink denim over my trusty maroon cardigan. Continue reading “Pink Denim and Maroon (and grey again!)”

White Denim and Leopard Print

When I wrote the title to this post, I had a little chuckle to myself. White denim and leopard print conjure up images in my head of Eastenders, the 80’s and Pretty Woman, and not at all in a good way. But I’m hoping here, that even with the whitest of white jeans and furry leopard print ankle boots, I’ve managed to look at least acceptable for the office on a sunny spring day.  Continue reading “White Denim and Leopard Print”

Butterfly Dress and Denim Jacket – Spring is on its way!

I’d forgotten how much I like this butterfly print dress I picked up last summer. I remember being undecided about which size to get, being a bit in between sizes when I tried it on. I eventually went for the smaller of the two, and I’m really glad I did. After bursting out of another dress last week, I’ve been feeling a bit low in terms of my size, health and fitness in general. It’s definitely been a good start to the week to be able to fit into a smaller dress and being reminded that a broken zip doesn’t necessarily indicate an enormous size gain.
