Jeans Shopping Fear Cured With Monki

blogger, Fashion, Jeans, Monki, Shopping

Hey there,

Long time no see! Hope you’re all doing well.

Today I’ve got two words for you that always strike fear into me. Jeans shopping.

Whenever I need new jeans I always get the dread, Will they fit me? Will they flatter me? The answer is usually no and I end up walking out of the shop, wanting to cry and head straight to the nearest shop for chocolate.

Have no more jeans shopping fear babes, as I bring to you the holy grail of jeans from Monki. I’m sharing 3 different pairs from them that I love, feel fab in and they fit well!

First up we have a classic pair of blue jeans called ‘Taiki’.
These are a vintage mom shape with a straight leg in a mid blue wash and super high waisted. This is a pair you can chuck on and feel great in whatever your mood.

I love the fit of these, a little big on the waist but I always have that problem with jeans, nothing a belt won’t fix! Here I have styled then with a oversized cord shirt and loafers for a 90s vibe.

Taiki Blue Jeans / Cord Shirt / Tiger Loafers

Next up we have ‘Yoko’ a super high waisted light wash jean with flared legs.
I absolutely adore this pair, they totally remind me of Avril Lavigne Sk8r boi vibes and I am all about that. Here I have styled them with a pair of Dr Martens, leather blazer and a floral polo neck.

I feel totally badass in these and I love how they’re slightly longer on the leg so they flare over your shoes. Team them with a cute top and sandals in the spring for a totally different look!

Yoko Light Blue Jeans

Last up we have ‘Taiki’ in a white wash. These are the same style as the blue pair but are a cropped leg. I love a white jean, I love wearing them all year round and think they work with pretty much anything! Although I usually end up spilling something down them (I took these photos before eating just incase!)

First blog post……….eeeeek!

Fashion

Well hello there!

I can’t believe I am finally writing my first blog post.

I have wanted to start this for a good year or so, but a) never had the balls and b) I am v lazy. But with the new year and making resolutions, I thought it was about time I stuck to them and created this little space of mine on the internet!
I’m going to share my unhealthy shopping obsession, outfit posts along with some travel, lifestyle and food.

I thought I would start my first blogpost with some of my favourite outfits from 2017 as I really felt like I became more confident in my style last year. Even if people wouldn’t like what I was wearing, or would look twice at me, I felt good enough and confident to rock it!

I wore this outfit when me and my boyfriend Adam were going into town to run a few errands and having lunch. This is a typical casual weekend outfit for me, I like to wear jeans at the weekend as I don’t wear them at work. I’m really into baker boy hats at the minute (mainly because they’re good for hiding greasy hair!) throw in this bargain Primark coat I got in the sale and I think this is a pretty cool outfit (even if I do say so myself).

This outfit has everything I love: pink, ruffles, high waisted denim and a baker boy hat.

I’ll be honest, I was rushing to get ready and threw this outfit together! I got these trousers from H&M sale and knew I wanted to wear them straight away, I tried various blouses and jumpers on but nothing was working, then I spied this NYC Top in the back of my wardrobe, and thought this styled the trousers more casual! I’ve had this fur jacket for years from when I worked at H&M and it just works with everything!

This outfit is what I wore on New Year’s Eve 2016, so my first outfit of 2017! I was in Edinburgh celebrating the new year and it was FREEZING!!! I wanted to be warm but still feel dressy enough as we were having a meal before getting drunk! This post has reminded me to dig it out of my wardrobe again!

I wore this dress when me and my boyfriend Adam went to Chicago for our friends wedding last summer, this was the night of the rehearsal dinner and I can’t honestly tell you how good I felt in this dress. You know when you put something on and feel 100% yourself and confident? This is that dress for me and every girl needs a LBD in her life!

Okay so does this dress remind anyone else of the sassy Spanish lady emoji?! This is what I wore to the wedding in Chicago. My mum actually found me this dress in the Next sale, as soon as I saw it I knew I would love it: red, ruffles and sass, what more could you want?

So this outfit may be a bit quirky and loud for some people (much like me!) but I love it. I wore this for one of my besties wedding do’s and I felt so sassy! I love the clash of the bright pink trousers with the tropical print on the top, throw in some sassy shades and you’re onto a winner.

Last but no least we have this outfit I wore for going out for some food (loose dress = more food right?!) I got this fake leather pinafore from Zara sale for a fiver (did I mention I love a bargain?) I love the bottle green shade of it, as usually these types of dresses are black. I got this blouse from Primark and I love the clash of the yellow with the outfit, I decided to keep my boots and tights simple!

So there we have a round up of some of my fave outfits from 2017, I hope you have enjoyed looking back with me.

Also, thank you if you’ve read this far, I really hope this will be a project that grows and people love it as much as I love creating it!

Speak soon babes with a second post, and in the meantime check out my instagram Here.
