Cuffed Jeans with Red & Mint

Remember this dress? When i first received it i knew that i wanted to wear it open like a long shirt/jacket. I love the flow of it over the basic outfit of boyfriend jeans and a white tee. Perfect for casual but still feeling pretty snazzy. It was so windy today the shirt was blowing in the breeze, which was lovely, but my gosh... my hair was going c-razy!! Quite frustrating as half the photos came out making me looking like a. i had grown a beard or b. had stuck my fingers in an electric socket. Seriously, i think i need to do a bloopers post with crazy hair!haha!

So super cuffed jeans. 
I have been seeing these in the fashion mags of late and i kinda love it. It just adds a great update to something you already have in your wardrobe, which to me is cost effective and also very cool. 
Me likey!
I've cuffed jeans (not as much as here) for years so this is a welcome trend in my books.
The idea is to have a fairly loose fitting straight leg jeans (as opposed to a skinny or a flared jeans) and cuff away.
Have you tried the cuffed jeans trend yet?
 Another new to me trial is red and mint. After seeing it recently on Atlantic Pacific (who can do no wrong in my eyes!) it looked like a fun colour combo i had never tried before. Cue an old mint bag and a mint/neon statement necklace, all finished off with a bit of leopard.
Lovely jubilee.
