denim x 2

A rarity for me, but over the past couple of days I have found myself favouring jeans over my usual uniform of a dress or skirt. It’s like a comfort blanket I think, and with things being just a little stressful in my life at the moment I’ve fallen back in to old habits.

Not that I mind, denim has it’s charms, I’ve just never felt its suited me all that well.



These are my £4.99 Urban Outfitters jeans, made by [blank] and worn with a past season topshop top. I’ve never heard of this brand before, but they fit well and are long enough in the leg and waist for my tall frame. I wouldn’t pay £60 for a pair of jeans, but at less than £5 I can’t complain.


Today I was too lazy for anything more than a mirror picture, especially as Mum is ill so I’ve had to make a couple of trips to the shops to pick up things we need as we have no food in the house. The jeans I’m wearing today are River Island (nabbed off Mum) and the shirt is a hand me down from a friend.

I did indulge in some more retail therapy both yesterday and today,
budget style of course.
I picked up two pairs of tights in Boots yesterday; one grey and one royal blue for £1.25 a pair…so if you have a Boots near you, check them out as they are having major clearance (also on some Soap and Glory products though typically these were sold out here).

Today I treated myself to a much lusted after leopard print leotard in New Look, rationalising that I should make the most of my student discount as I have less than two weeks until it becomes in-valid. So, £10.80 makes a bargain, yes?


Sorry if the photo is super small.

I can’t wait to take my saved up pennies along to Primark, I am in major shopping mode lately.

  1. Hi love! Sigh. Much like how you prefer dresses and skirts, I pretty much live in jeans and t-shirts. 🙂


    Ive heard so many good things about Primark. I kind of wish they have an online shop or something.

  24. I’m very similar with my skirts and dresses – I suppose I feel safer in them – more covered up? But I’ve been wearing jeans more recently, too. Variety is the spice of life 😉
    Loving the leotard – ooh I’m totally hitting Primark today too… my A Level results come out tomorrow and I need a pre-result celebration because I may well be comiserating tomorrow!
