straight talking!

I'm revisiting one of my favourite subjects. The are the mainstay of my wardrobe and I waxed lyrical about them in my last post (sorry for being such a bad blogger recently.....blame my flu addled brain!). As I wear jeans about 95% of the time there is always room for another pair and I am constantly striving to source the holy grail of jeans. Trends have changed and my beloved skinnies have now been taken on for work as they are the smarter option. Straight leg is now is favour. Admittedly I'm quite a late adopter of the style but having dipped my toe in a couple of higher end M.i.h straighter styles a couple of months back I now consider myself to be totally ingratiated in this denim trend now. I think I have found the perfect High Street option at the much more purse friendly price of £40. All hail the Toppers version.......

These jeans make me so happy. I've purchased the mid blue rinse raw hem style so far.....I've taken the liberty of ordering these and these as I'm an advocate of if you like something buy it in all the colours! They are high waisted, come in 7 different shades in the raw hem finish and normal finish. I have found them true to size, I'm wearing my usual 28W, 32L. I love them with all of my footwear options.....they look fab with sock boots but equally as good with hi top trainers as they do with my Stan's. I'm looking forward to wearing them with loafers in the Spring.

Are you onboard with the latest denim trends? What's your favourite style at the moment? Do you favour High Street or Higher end.......I'm all ears!

As I've been felled with the flu over the past couple of weeks there haven't been any opportunities for shopping.....hence the sales pretty much passed me by with the exception of the Converse that I blogged about on my previous post. My only other purchase was a full price sweater from H&M. I was starting to crave a bit of Spring and this powder pink hit is perfect for a fast fix wardrobe uplift.

Worn with my straights today of course!

Now I'm back in the swing of things after my flu fug I've a few 2018 goals to share. I'm hurtling towards the big 5 0 (in 2019) and it's time to take myself in hand and make a few changes. We are just starting an exciting overhaul of our home and I'm stupidly excited about doing a wardrobe edit now that we have some gorgeous new storage! It's time to look towards Spring and a few wardrobe up-daters. I'll be sharing my top 5 pieces of each area of my wardrobe for Spring and spotlighting a couple of my favourite local stores and bringing you a few of my favourite January pampering products and a new exercise regime! And that's just for starters! :0)

Be back soon!
