Just a very quick post today to let you know that I've only gone and found the best casual jeans EVER.
|Roll Neck - Vintage Dove House 87|
Indigo Rip Detail Skinny Jeans - Yours Clothing
Block Heel Sandals - Yours Clothing
These jeans were chosen on an impulse, mainly because I don't have any trousers that aren't so tight you can see my dinner through them and I wanted a trouser option as the weather picked up. What a great impulse it was!
These are a 16 and they are spot on size wise, I know they state online that they're skinny but I would say they're more of a slim fit straight leg and worn rolled up they give a fabulous fitted boyfriend look. The high waist means that I'm not always tugging at myself (That sounds rude. Don't know why) and as I've said in the past, I always feel more put together with a high-waisted trouser, everything just looks so much better with them.
Weird fact: I get annoyed by how often plus size distressed denim is so obviously false; the thighs are a giant big bleached white patch and the rips don't have that "oops I just did this whilst being an international rock star" look to them. I've realised that Yours Clothing denim doesn't have this weird creepy look to it and have been pleasantly surprised on many an occasion - These jeans are no exception.
I've mentioned these sandals before but they've pretty much not been off my feet so TA DAAAA.
The top was yet another vintage find c/o Dove House No 87 in Hull - Whoever it is that keeps taking in Size 16 and 18 items in to the shop is basically me but from the 60s because this fits like a glove and brings me much pleasure. I bought it thinking it would go in the drawer until Autumn but there Summer was and there it went and I'm back in the old velour rollnecks...
I've got an LBD and a little blue two piece coming up on here so the sun wants to get its act together or we're going to have a pneaumonia incident on our hands...
