Biker Jeans with Black, Red & Mint

In my last post i mentioned how summer dresses are my simple summer style staple (lot of S's there, nice bit of alteration on a Friday morning ;) 
Well i decided to totally contradict myself and throw some jeans on today.
I guess I just really wanted to wear these new biker jeans that i recently bought on a quick Primark trip. I have been after a pair of biker jeans for a while. Having become well acquainted with my patch jeans (which, fyi i've owned for 5 months now and we're still going strong.. it think it might be serious..) but to give those jeans a breather and fancying a darker pair these Primark jeans jumped out at me. Great for the new season, will look cool with boots and with a very small price tag, i was willing to give them a go. They are quite good quality for Primark, weirdly my main bug bear with them is the exceptionally large front pocket liner.. you can see them can't you through the jean?! Kind of all lumpy and bumpy where i don't need lumps and bumps added if ya know what i mean.
I don't ever even use my front jeans pockets (does any one, girl wise? i know men do, but ladies, do you use your jeans pockets?) 
But that's minor on the greater jeans scheme, and i can live with it I suppose, i'll just keep ramming my hands in my pockets to smooth them down i guess.
Does any one else shop in Primark(or another low price store) like a mad woman.. i mostly detest the place and do a mad supermarket sweep like motion when i'm in there, like i'm on a timer. 
I give myself 15mins to get in, shop and out. 
This time was fruitful for me with a maxi dress for £3, a drop waist dress for £8 and these jeans and black top.. My first Primark success in a long time!
I find myself buying more and more basics lately. I guess that's because i'm really digging great accessories for obvious reasons,heehee ;)
I'm just loving a simple tee and a great necklace. Going back to the ease of dressing is very refreshing.

Also my son (Neo) has apparently seen me pose for outfit photos waaay to many times. The boy wanted to join in today. 
Making in his statement in his favourite tshirt, handpicked by himself(a gorilla and a dinosaur on a tshirt..every 3 year old boys dream apparently?) and camo shorts.. oh to be 3 nearly 4 again;)

  1. They're a gorgeous fit! After many months of hunting for my perfect pair of white skinny jeans I eventually doing them in Primark for £10 and I love them. Before then I'd always avoided Primark jeans thinking the zip would be too cheap and flimsy. I am a bit of a Primark fan but it depends what store I'm in. Back in my old home city of Norwich I hated it cos the store was too small and jumble sale like. I love the one I now have in Newcastle cos it's huge and so well laid out. I spend hous in there!

  2. I looked at the pictures first and clocked the jeans thinking they were going to be über expensive so when I read they were from Primark, I fainted. Seriously impressed Rachel. I hate front pockets too especially on white jeans - urgh pet hate. Chop them out. Gorgeous little one xx

  11. Great pair of jeans! I love a good low priced store, but like you, I don't tend to spend too much time in them. Just a quick run though and I am moving on. Sometimes those dressing room lines ruin the whole fast trip though.

    Your son is a stunner bless him.

  24. LOVE the pics of you and Neo!!!! You look soooo good in jeans Rachel - and you inspired me to get some patchworks jeans at last! Love how you've dressed them up with your heels and jewellery (amazing as always).

    As for Primark... I will ONLY ever go in if I'm there within five minutes of the store opening - otherwise I'll never, ever go inside. Too much mess, too many people, queues too long. I hate high street shopping anyway so a Primark trip is a rare occurrence for me (and then I'll have a laden basket full of stuff and they'll say "that's £30 please". Whaaaaaaaaaat??!)

    Thanks for hosting, gorgeous - happy happy weekend!

  26. Cute co-model! (Mine photo bombs me allll the time)

    Maybe you could cut and sew the pockets shorter inside? Especially if you don't even use them. I have done that before with white pants that the liner showed through and drove me crazy!

  33. These jeans look amazing on you. It's been years since I last wore jeans, because they are really not flattering on me at all.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Altering those pockets would be simple to do, or if you really don't plan on using the front pockets just cut the lining out! Those jeans are pretty amazing by the way!
