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!)

10 Facts About Me

Fashion

Well hello there everyone! Getting good at this blogging thing aren’t I?

Today I thought I would keep it simple with 10 facts about me, cos you’re desperate to get to know me more right?! (Obvs joking, you can leave now if you wish).

1. I am a Leo and I carry the traits of this star sign to a tee- I am extremely stubborn and independent but on the flip side I am very loving and creative.

2. I am OBSESSED with dogs. I have a family dog called Sid who I love dearly.
Every time I see a dog I want to stroke it or talk to it, even when driving, which my instructor tells me off for in my lessons! I can’t help it okay?! They’re just so bloody cute!

3. I have such a bad sweet tooth. I always want chocolate, especially when I’ve eaten my tea, I want something sweet straight away. There is always room for pudding!

4. I have 3 freckles on my cheek that makes a perfect triangle, people at school used to think I drew it on!

5. My family means everything to me. My Mum and Sister are my best friends. Whenever I have a problem I always go to them for advice first, they’re the best!

6. I studied Textiles Design specializing in Knitwear at Huddersfield University and graduated in 2014 with a 2:1. Where have the last 4 years gone?!

7. I am currently working as a Trainee Designer at a caravan company in Hull.
I have previously been a Sock Designer and Garment Technologist.

8. I literally have no common sense whatsoever! Two years ago I woke myself up in the middle of the night when I realized half an hour was half of an hour……..yeah really! I’m naturally Brunette….

 

9. I am a big believer in fate and that everything happens for a reason. In the worst times in my life things have always worked out, or made sense in the end why they happened. I think the troubles we face in life are to teach us lessons and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the bad times.

10. My boyfriend Adam and I have just bought our first house together, and I’m so excited to start decorating and making our house a Home.

So there we have it, short but sweet, 10 facts about me. I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a bit more!
