Fade to grey...

Jeans and I never used to be very good friends (and I even went a few years without wearing them- just how skinny was I in those pictures?!) but recently I have been reaching for them as the perfect basis for both my work and weekend wardrobe. I picked this faded grey pair up in the Warehouse sale for a mere £5 and they are so comfy. I swear I can't go in that store recently without picking something up, their clothes are just lovely. The grey is a bit more unusual than my usual choice of blue denim but I actually really like it, all of my blue tops and jumpers have been getting an airing with it. I am in a completely different place to where I thought I would be 3 years ago (sartorially and socially) but I actually like how things have turned out, I'm really not doing too badly for myself, something my worrying tends to forget!


Top: Warehouse, jeans: Warehouse, shoes: New Look

I have spoken about my love of MAC's Impassioned before but really how could you not love such a vibrant pink?! It is difficult to show it here but it brightens up even the greyest of days! This top is another Warehouse beauty (I told you I was obsessed!) and I love how simple it is, the only problem its that it is slightly too low cut for work, I think I will be saving this one for weekends instead!


These jeans are straight legged rather than skinny fit which makes them ridiculously comfy but also weirdly difficult to style. I went for these leg-lengthening heels and a slight turn up to bring them back into my comfort zone but I'm keen to wear them more casually so any ideas for how to style them are appreciated! 


How would you style straight-legged jeans? Which brands are you crushing on at the moment?

Nice to try out new colours. I am too on the look out for some denim in grey or black. I stick to straight/slim from Levi's.

Blimey - what a bargain! I bought a similar pair from Warehouse for a tenner and I was well chuffed. ;)

I just can't get on with jeans at all. I'm currently coveting just about everything on the Boden website!

I only started to wear trousers last year in my mid 30s having been a skirts/dresses girl. I have yet to progress to jeans but I am thinking of getting some or more casual trousers for the winter
