Sometimes less is more

I have had SUCH a lazy weekend, haha, it's been amazing! I've watched my entire collection of M. Night Shyamalan films, experimented with boiled orange peel for a naughty chocolate cake, and had a wander around my favourite Antiques destination - Notions.

On days like these, I'm not very high maintenance. I never am other times really, but lazy weekends like this require simplicity to run around in. I give you - the perfect pair of jeans.

Jeans - c/o Jeanography
Studded boots - c/o Barratts

I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl through and through, so when Jeanography got in touch to see if I'd like to review their Fit First Time service, to be honest, I was game, fitting into jeans snugly has always been a challenge with my short legs and no hips. I was sent James Jeans Twiggy in Slate in 2 sizes, which meant I could try them both on at home and do that ever flattering shimmy denim dance in private. As an alternate choice, I was also sent the MiH Bonn Jean in 42 Red (hello sexy!).

They tell me skinnies are going to be replaced in the fashion world by flares, but for me, skinny will always win. And out of the three, the above pair of James Jeans are a perfect fit. The red pair were equally snug, but you can't go wrong with a pair of classic dark jeans. Perfect for running around weekend errands, and tucking into my new studded boots.

And onto the shoes of course! Studs are everywhere at the moment, on hats, on platforms, on bags. These boots from Barratts caught my attention because they're pretty kick ass - and yet less than half the price of Dr Martens. They take a few wears to get the leather softened but once you've tamed them, they're like Converse - yours forever.
