My every day style is definitely jeans and a top. Which explains why I own so many pairs of jeans. I’d crown them the king of my wardrobe staples, and I promise, I do wear them all. I always have a few favourites (Currently my AG ‘Phobe’ jeans which they seem to have discontinued annoyingly, these Anine Bing Jeans above which seem to magically make my legs appear longer, and my black Tomorrow jeans) but each pair is different and I make sure that they all get their turn.
Jeans are jeans, right?! Well, I’d argue wrong! When I am getting dressed in the morning I often start with a pair of shoes and work my way up, and it’s amazing how the style, shape and colour of my jeans can make all the difference to my look. I often end up trying two or three pairs before I achieve the look I am going for. I’ve no doubt that will sound ridiculous to some, but this is what I love about clothes. The way subtle changes in fabric, texture, style and colour transform a look is the bit that excites me most about fashion.
I have fallen in love with everything Sezane this season – I adore their knits in the winter, but come the Summer I want it all. Needless to say, I can’t have it all, and I have already purchased my Summer Sezane quota (my order is waiting very patiently for me to collect it) so I have picked up what I call a few ‘Sezane inspired’ pieces from the high street. If you have watched my stories on Instagram recently, you’ll have seen that I have worn this Mango jumper (£39.99) a lot and I happen to be wearing it as I type! I also bought this brown top (£19.99) that I am wearing above in Mango.
I have put together a look from a few H&M pieces that would see you through the summer. The pink vest style top comes in three different colours (black, pink and white) and at that price you could snap it up in three different colours. I tried the jeans on yesterday and they were really nice, but I definitely don’t need another pair of light blue jeans. They did of course, need chopping, but don’t forget you can chop to achieve your desired length and then stick straight in the washing machine on a short cycle and they come out perfectly frayed. The nude mules are so similar to the ones I bought last season from John Lewis and wore to death. They just worked with everything and the closed pointed toe made them smart enough for most occasions. These are leather, so a really good price at £39.99.
