Happy New Year! New year…new me it seems – I got me some skinny jeans!
I always used to wear jeans, but in recent years went off them in favour of all the dresses in the land. However, I decided to tentatively rekindled my love for them only to find that my once skinny jeans are a little too baggy for me and my slightly smaller booty and thighs. And so I decided to hunt for a few new pairs that cradled my butt cheeks and clung to my legs like in the olden days, and thankfully, New Look via ASOS had the denimlicious answer…
These size 18 beauties are a 97.35% perfect fit. I say that because they are a leeeetle roomy on my waist and not quite as skintight on the booty as I’d like, but a wash and a tumble dry will no doubt help with that.
I was meant to be meeting with some friends on Saturday, and I decided that this smart casual outfit was the perfect look for a cosy meet up where I’d no doubt be chasing my friend’s toddler around. When the plans fell through I decided to drag Robbie out for a wintery walk so that we could snap some shots for the blog in our local park and I could make like a proper fashion blogger!
I was without shapewear, a belt or shoes that I couldn’t walk in…if that makes sense! This is a genuine outfit that I have worn and will wear again!
The bodysuit is perfect for achieving that ‘tucked into jeans’ look without any need for adjustments. It’s from Chubby Cartwheels and you might recognise it from this post a few months to go. Click for my review and a link to buy.
A high bun, hoop earrings and a dark lip are my perfect go to finishing touches as of late. And the winter sunshine gave me an excuse to crack out my sunglasses – £3.50 from a market stall in Camden. And this year I finally gave into the ankle boot look, and I have yet to be disappointed. They are comfy, they are versatile, they give me that bit of extra height and they are warm. Plus, I clearly needed more shoes!
So how do you like my look? It’s a little different for me, but experimenting with a new – or rather old – look is never a bad thing.
Shout out to Robbie for the awesome photos – isn’t he good!
