Jeans and I have a slightly love/hate relationship. From the ages of 15-20 I pretty much lived in them solidly with a carefully curated collection of pairs I knew I could rely on. For a while though I just didn’t like jeans at all. I suddenly took against every pair I owned and just couldn’t find anything I liked enough to replace them. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago at the grand old age of 27 that I decided to brave jeans again, branching out and trying new styles and shops and learning to embrace cuts that previously I would never have contemplated.
George at Asda have recently done some research in to the ultimate Jeans Queens and invited me to take a look at their selection of denim and pick out a pair to style. With my collection slowly and surely building again and inspired by the selection of gorgeous bloggers featured on the Jeans Queen page I decided to select a pair of Summer skinnies to my denim wardrobe.
Are you a denim devotee? Who’s jeans style do you admire most? I find bloggers far more inspirational than any celebrity if I’m honest and I have serious wardrobe envy over much of my bloglovin’ feed. After seeing them on several of my favourites I’m thinking some bright and funky embellished jeans are next on the list…
Either way I do feel in dire need of a break from reality at the moment, but I know to get the best from that I need to be as well as possible- and so once again the journey to recovery begins in earnest and this time it really will be for the last time. As I approach the grand old age of 30 next year I feel far too old and like life is far too short to let this take any more of me.

I sometimes feel I should be branching out a bit in what I’m wearing at the moment but I’m in a funny situation where I’m off work and not many of my clothes fit. This is something I feel cool and comfortable in- if it ain’t broke don’t fix it right?
Have you got a uniform of sorts right now? What slogan would you most like on a tee?
Do you have an appreciation for menswear? Any men reading, would you be brave enough to wear one of Noose and Monkey’s suits?
