Cute and Kitsch - The Scarlett And Jo Navy Floral Stretch Jeggings

You know that I'm more into dresses than trousers (Although my wardrobe is beginning to suggest otherwise...) but when Scarlett & Jo asked if I'd like to give some of their new separates a go I couldn't possibly say no.

I was sent a pair of their brand new Navy Blue Stretch Trousers which are also known as the babygarb jeggings. Beautiful Becky modeled these for the SS15 campaign launch and made them look sexy as hell so I had my fingers crossed that they'd look even half as good on my ridiculously long lengs. 

The jeggings are high waisted and my favourite length for skinny fit trousers; Just above the ankle.  They've got a real 50s vibe to them, I bet Marilyn Monroe would have bought some herself (In between writing motivational quotes obvs)

Forgive my face in these pictures, for some reason, the pictures with smiles made me look a tad, let's say demented.

I've paired the jeggings here with my H&M Bardot top which has been quite possibly my most worn item over the last three months. I bought this in striped monochrome as well as the black one and they work with absolutely everything.

I make no secret of the fact that I like my stomach to be kept under control, the babygaberdine fabric of these jeggings has excellent firm stretch and keeps all my parts in check whilst keeping shape beautifully. My biggest bugbear with capri pants is the knee thing, you know when you sit down and a virtual knee becomes created in the fabric and before you know it you have several "knees" and baggier trousers that MC Hammer at an all you can eat buffet. WELL, there are no knees with these jeggings at all, they stay the same shape from morning to night. Hurrah.

I'm wearing the 16s and I find them very true to size. Saying this, with them being high-waisted I think I could have sized down and they would have still been a good fit.

So far, I've worn them styled as above with my heels and a leather jacket to go out for a couple of drinks. I've also worn them with my generic white lace up plimsolls (takes all my energy not to call them sandshoes..) and a long black tshirt for a loooong walk. They're so bloody versatile! 


The new range also has a wiggle dress and pencil skirt in the same material, though I'm now planning to wear more snazzy trousers, particularly for work so this could be start of something beautiful.
