Jeans, jeans, jeans!

My dad used to roll his eyes and complain that I was always wearing jeans…Guess what? He was right!

From winter to spring, and summer to fall I will be wearing jeans…along with most of the rest of you, I expect.  Dontcha just wish you’d invinted these money spinners ;O?

These days jeans come in a whole range of shapes, washes, and finishes, enough to have placated my dad even ;).  I have skinnies [mostly], straight leg, flares, bootcut, boyfriend, biker, high waist, low waist, patched, embroidered, waxed, distressed, black, grey, dark blue, light blue, pink, white….need I go on?  Jeans are hardly boring same old blue cowboy fare any longer…

 

Version 2

Above and below traditional dark wash denim but with the modern addition of a bit of elastane for comfort, heartfelt sigh ;O

Similar looks here and here

 

I love jeans that feature zips on the hip, I think that the effect is slimming, and I love my harware as you will probably know by now!  I have this style in lots of different colors.  Similar black here and here grey exact here and similar here pink, exact here [they are worth every penny;O] and similar, love these ones with the buttons, here and here white [no wardrobe is complete without white jeans] mine are old, but these are this year’s model here and I like these here the aqua pants are also old, these ones are similar here

I featured these patched pants recently on Insta and they garnered loads of likes!  They remind me of the ones we used to do ourselves in the days of hippie festival chic, which is, if you think about it, exactly the same fashion vibe as now!!  I reverted to Levis, my original jeans love, for this look.  Similar here and here  I have to confess tho that these days I prefer a jean with a little stretch content…2% is best.

 

 

Damsel in distressed!  Or Distressed is best ;D  these are my jeans of choice…I love the worn in feel of a good pair of distressed jeans, these are both in a slim boyfriend style [dontcha just wish you had a slim boyfriend ;O]  Similar here and here and here

Love this fringed pair similar babyliscious ones here and I love these too here

 

…and then there patterned jeans 😀 …I LOVE a spot of leopard, as you all will know by now ;O…similar here and camo never goes out of style…similar here and here

Then there are embroidered ones I have these here …oh and there are pearl strewn ones…and…

The point is that living in jeans is not a boring wardrobe choice anymore…even if once upon a time you would have agreed with my dad!  Every girl should curate a good collection of jeans in the styles and colors that you like the best.  Dressed up or down they really are a girl’s best friend in the wardrobe stakes!

Thanks for stopping by my friends.  Bye for now, Sarah x

 

 

 

Hangin’ Out

…I’m not sure what number these are in a long line of Converse…

Some of the younger generation think that double denim is a fairly new concept…NOT 😉  I’ve rocked a very similar combo to this many times over, in the 70s, 80s and 90s.  I’m wearing a denim shirt which I scored on sale from Anine Bing, same here  (very limited supply tho 😦 ), similar here and budget versions here and here Jeans are distressed boyfriend style (old) similar here  here and here

Processed with MOLDIV

The tee is an old favorite from, you guessed it, Zadig et Voltaire, this season’s version here or you could try this one, which I also wear on repeat here or this cheaper version here

The Converse sneaks were special edition and are now unavailable but I love plain red ones and have worn this style for years here and I also love these ones here the scarf is Zadig here and here and the belt ditto here and similar here Bag here and love this mini version here similar with 25% discount here

Processed with MOLDIV

My sunnies are old, similar here and here and my leather gilet too, similar here here and here and a cheaper version here I’m sporting the usual hardware here  here here and my new fav commissioned piece here

So the moral of the story is that there is really nothing new under the sun!  Find your style and develop it to suit yourself and your lifestyle and you will collect lifetime pieces to wear over and over in different combinations 😉  That’s it for now folks, thanks for dropping by, Sarah x

After 10 days of capsule dressing I was ready to wear anything else;) …but what did my hand stray towards this morning?  Blue jeans (natch) and then what the ….may as well do double denim with a spot ;D of leopard…and I threw in a pretty blouse for a touch of femininity…ahh!  My jeans are old Boyfriend style (the older they get the more comfy in my opinion…these ones have been patched to hold them together!  Similar here and here the denim shirt style jacket is from Anine Bing exact here and similar here The white frilled blouse is from Isabel Marant Etoile exact here and similar but less expensive here My boots are also Marant and were on sale from the same site here and my bag is Jerome Dreyfuss here (I got mine from The Outnet   considerably reduced…try hunting for it from the link to the Marant boots if you like).
