For years i haven’t permitted myself a new pair of white jeans. Having a baby, then a toddler meant i would be just plain silly to wear such a colour. I would have just been asking for stains and little hand prints. But my little man is growing up and I have taken the plunge and invested in a new pair of classic white jeans. Now all I have to contend with is my own clumsy ways (Have i ever mentioned; Clumsiest Person EVER! Its a condition i tell you.) I feel like i have to be super super cautious when I’m in white, like nobody can stand within 5 feet of me and I can’t poor myself a drink or eat spaghetti, haha! But not eating or drinking in them is worth it as the white jeans are just the epitome of spring and summer to me. With lots of remixability options i hope to keep these ankle grazer beauties stain free all summer and on constant rotation (eh, wish me luck on the no stain thang…!)
I had been eyeing up this top on-line for a few weeks, but with my size out of stock i gave up. To my astonishment when i actually went in River Island yesterday there it was in all its glory, i grabbed it , paid and left a happy lady. A little off the shoulder action can look so elegant on a lady, showcasing one of the slimmest parts (the collarbone) and shoulders can be tres flattering. The Bardot cut is a classic and i am smitten with the Breton stripes too. I went with full on monochromatic here which is unlike me; normally i like to add a punch of colour with some bright shoes or bag. This time i just felt very classic and unfussy so went with all black and white.
I’m really enjoying some classics in my wardrobe lately and this top and these jeans have just become a staple.
The Sunglasses Shop kindly allowed me to pick a pair of sunglasses last week and i chose the most amazing tinted Rayban aviators, giving my old cheapies the boot and these beauties taking pride of place on my face. Having bought cheap sunglasses for years i was so surprised at the quality. They are made to perfection. They feel heavier than my old cheapies and the lenses are so crisp and clear. The Sunglasses shop were quick and professional and i will definitely be using them again. In fact Hubby also loves them and we have been fighting over them, haha…Looks like i’ll be investing in another pair soon so i don’t have to race him to the sunglasses every day;)
