After last week, i think you can all appreciate my love for skinny jeans, ripped ones in particular.
But i had an urge to try Flared jeans again. An itch that just had to be scratched. I had dabbled with a pair earlier in the year and just didn’t get on with them: too low cut, not flared enough and too short.
I put it down to a style fail rather than a whole complete fat fail. It was just finding the perfect fit that was proving as epic as the search for the holy -flippin’-grail.
Rewind about 7 years and i had the most perfect flared jeans. Great length for wear with heels, nice cut and fit and generally a great jean. I wore them all the time, and i’m talking before flares were cool again here. I’m way ahead of the trend (which incidentally makes me completely off trend at the same time. Bother!) So these perfect flares were River Island and only to be ditched when i gained all the weight and i couldn’t prise myself in to the poor things a moment longer.
So with hope i turned back to River Island. And man did they deliver!
I picked these Mid Wash slightly distressed(i love me some rippage.. even a word!?) flared jeans and bought without trying on, thinking i could always return them if it turned in to another flared fail.
But i tried them on, styled them up, and freakin’ loved them. Flares Forever i say!! Except on days when its raining cos soggy flares are just no fun.
I paired my new fancy flares with this new season Warehouse Summer Floral Blouse which is the same floral print as my favourite midi dress from earlier this year (they do the blouse in blue, like the dress too, which obvs, i now totally want too!) And i felt all warm and autumnally (seriously, what is up with my vocabulary today) ‘cos quite frankly i’ve bored myself to tears with moaning about our crappy Biritsh Summer.. i mean being British you’d think i’d be used to perpetual rain and wind, even in the height of summer. But no, each year i act like i’ve never seen rain in summer and offended at how hard done by i am. Well not any more.
I’m just going to full on embrace the new Autumn/ Winter collections to make my ordeal a lot easier!
