My Jeans Journey

Jeans are a fantastic staple in my wardrobe but I don’t know about you but I find it such a nightmare to track down the perfect pair. Finding the right fit, shape and colour is such a hard task as the high street is constantly changing and evolving to incorperate the latest trends and styles so the classic denim jean is never just that. Now, I am a typical pair shape (read small waist big hips, stomach region) and the low-rise styles just don’t flatter. I like a higher waist, a comfortable fit and a darker denim whilst a skinny-leg fit to offer shape.

In my recent quest I managed to find the holy grail of the denim world. One minute I was browsing New Look without a care in the world eyeing up a gorgeous hue berry blouse then there they were. A skinny-fit, high waisted washed denim effect jean with a slight stretch just casually chilling between the boot-cut and boyfriend styles. With a 12 and 14 firmly tucked under my arm I headed to the changing room. Optimistic but slightly anxious. Myself and a great pair of denims have been in this position before but I still have the painful memories of doing the jump around dance trying to hoist (yes hoist) them over my larger than life thighs whilst getting a hot sweat on in a small changing room before admiting defeat.

Anyway, back to the present day. With a 12 and a 14 firmly under arm I went in search of the fitting room and went in whole-heartedly. One leg in, second leg in, pull up, zipper goes up well, still goes room to luuuunge and the top button is closed. I am in a size 12, they feel great and hey, don’t even look half bad. I am happy, elated even.

Me and my jeans are seem regularly together. Looking fantastic with boots, converse and even ballet pumps we are very happy. That is my jeans journey. What’s yours?
