blue jean baby



      

Dotti kimono cardigan, Sussan tank top, Dorothy Perkins jeans, David Jones slip on espadrilles, Lovisa necklace

It sounds crazy, but there was once a time when I hated blue jeans and avoided them at all costs. Thankfully I'm over that phase though, and I've since realised that blue denim's essential for breaking up my monochrome wardrobe! Anyway, since it's been unseasonably cold recently I've been dragging out these skinnies, which have quickly become my favourite pair since I bought them. They're high waisted and quite thin, which isn't so great for staying warm but perfect for when the weather's in that awkward transitional period.

The slip ons are also new to my ever-growing shoe collection, but they're definitely a change from my usual style. Normally I'm iffy about white shoes, but the fact that these look like those Chanel espadrilles pretty much sealed the deal for me. Everything's topped off by my alphabet necklace, just because you can never have too many things with your initial on them! I usually have a hard time finding 'M' pendants that aren't in a hideous font, so hurrah for actually finding one that I like.






In other news, I've finally decided to bite the bullet and migrate my comments to Disqus! I've been pondering it for ages now, but the process was surprisingly painless and now I wish I'd done it sooner. I'm never actually sure if people see the replies to their comments, so hopefully that won't be an issue from now on.

  1. When the weather gets colder, my first instinct is to whip out sweats or fleece-lined leggings. In fact, I stay as far away from skinny jeans as I can! Skinny jeans definitely look more polished, but looking polished is usually the last thing I'm thinking about in this dreary weather :P // I'm also iffy about white shoes (and white pants too), but I love yours so much! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  2. Haha I fell out of love with blue jeans for a bit too, black is my staple but I don't mind a bit of blue now and then. Nice new shoes!

  4. So funny! I also have 2 pairs of jeans like Anouk, I'm slowly trying to love them more, but it's so hard. Your pair is so perfect, and the flats go nice with it. The M font is so lovely :)

  5. I like denim, but honestly only buy dark denim and black wash jeans I love them because I never used to be able to wear them because I can only wear business attire my job. Love your outfit here, especially the cardigan! <3 /Madison

  7. Thanks Audrey! Haha I do love my sweats, but I'm guessing Australia's idea of 'cold' is way different to the rest of the world's...

  8. Yeah, for some reason it seems way harder to find the perfect pair of blue jeans! As a result I still have tons of black denim in my closet...

  9. I think two pairs of well-fitting jeans are all you really need, to be honest! I'm just a bit picky, so I'm still searching for the perfect pair myself...

  10. Thanks Stephanie! I definitely think jeans can be a bit uncomfortable if you're not used to them, but it gets better. I can't live without mine now :)
