My relationship with all things denim has been well documented on these pages since the very inception of my blog. In fact, I have a whole post dedicated to my seven year jean phobia, and several dedicated to the two pairs that successfully brought me out of it (here and here if you’re interested). While denim has slowly made its way into my wardrobe, it has never become a staple item for me until recently when I discovered the Topshop straight leg jeans and my life hasn’t been quite the same since.
While I’ve done my best when it comes to experimenting with my style a little, it must be said that the occasional foray into colour or print isn’t exactly groundbreaking. You’d be right in saying the same when it comes to experimenting with the fit and style of jeans I’m wearing too, but for someone who’s lived exclusively in skinny jeans and one pair of mom jeans since the age of 14 breaking out into a whole new style of denim was nothing short of terrifying.
I actually tried these on way back at the beginning of the summer but due to finances I never bought them – a decision which I’m wholly happy with now as I’m a full 4 sizes smaller on the lower half and I’d definitely be pissed if I had to cinch these bad boys in with a belt every time I wore them.
If you follow me over on Instagram (and if you don’t, you really probably should) you’ll have seen these babies feature heavily already so apologies if you’re already bored of their mid-wash beauty but I just can’t get enough of them. I find these so flattering on my body type it’s unreal (FYI I’m v. petite but do have a lil’ curve to the hip & bum area) – they skim my hips rather than clinging to the bits I don’t like, and fall nicely down my legs to kinda chisel my silhouette. Does that even make sense? I know what I’m trying to say *eye roll emoji*
ANYWAY they also make my bum look incredible so if that isn’t incentive enough to wear them every single day for the rest of my life I don’t know what is. I will have a video going live on my Youtube channel next week talking all things styling when it comes to these bad boys so I’d make sure you head over to my channel and hit the subscribe button so you don’t miss out!
Until next time xo
