Frankly, it is just too depressing to even begin to discuss anything weather related. I am sat here surrounded by children inside and a foot of snow outside. And it's still snowing. I refuse to contemplate any more snow pics this morning and so here's a blog that has been in the offing.
With sunny pics already in the bag, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to talk about one of my style staples. Oh yes, it's the skinny jean.
I was fortunate enough to be asked to feature in a Stylists Advertorial for Stylist Magazine - my staple is obviously the skinny jean and here I am featured wearing the white pair. There are four other bloggers featuring other style staples plus the opportunity to win £500 to spend at Boden. I have my eye on the colour pop jumper with buttons down the back which is just too cute.
But back to the jeans. Now admittedly when it comes to women's jeans these days, pretty much anything goes. (bar boyfriend jeans for me. I've given up. Well I haven't, but I've given up whinging about them in public).
It's pretty evident that my favourite jeans by far are my skinny ones. However finding ones that a) don't stretch too much b) aren't too low rise c) are a good fit and d) don't break the bank, can be a challenge.
I have mentioned before that I love my Boden jeans - I have worn the vintage skinnies for a couple of months now so I was over the moon to receive some white and pear drop ones as well.
My love of white jeans has been well documented and I have dallied with coloured and print jeans in seasons gone by. I'm also loving yellow this season (my Goat cardigan has been very useful and will be great coming into Spring) and so I was absolutely over the moon with the yellow shade.
Here is how they style them at Boden.
Skinny jeans in pear drop.
Adore them with navy and/or grey. Also plan on pairing them with monochrome shades as another nod to an easy win win trend this S/S.
Navy and white linen tee - Zara
Pear drop jeans - Boden
Navy blazer - Zara
Fabulous Finches scarf in Owl Brown - Mulberry
Sunglasses - Dior
Greige suede cowboy boots - Zara
Now please. Please please PLEASE can I have some more opportunity to wear them, dear weather.
As I have also already purchased a perfect blouse (sneak peek from my printed top post!) to go with them. A rather bargainous £16.75. Obviously it's not silk and it's "sniff" polyester but honestly it's not a "don't stand too near a naked flame" sort of feeling poly. I can live with it for the stunning colourway and print. And on the upside, it can go in the washing machine, it will dry in 25 seconds and won't need ironing.
So there we have a gratuitous sunny post in the face of snow complete.
Right - hands up who's snowed in and is online shopping to compensate??!
