forest green & denim jeans.


cardigan - UO, blouse & black jeans - topshop, boots & snood - ASOS

dear lord, look at my eyes in the second photo! i was just starting to feel super ill, but was still determined to fit in some outfit photos before i collapsed in a snotty heap in my bed. what a dedicated blogger i am.

actually wearing jeans for once. i got some topshop vouchers for christmas, and, knowing i'd been needing some black jeans for a really long time, figured rather than get annoyed at spending £40 on plain old denim jeans, use vouchers and it won't feel so bad. i like wearing jeans but, they never seem to fit me and they always seem to be too long. and i never feel 'stylish' enough when i wear them, even though i'm not exactly a dressed-up kind of person anyway. but sometimes, i just don't feel like wearing a dress or shorts. is anyone else the same?

  1. I know exactly how you feel! My weight just seems to go up and down all the time and I hate wearing belts, but buying new pairs of jeans just seems like a waste! I just stick to leggings and tights because they always fit!

    I love your outfit by the way :) xx

  2. I feel exactly the same about jeans!! they never fit me, they're always too long on the leg and i feel the same about them not being stylish. such a dilemma! but i feel like i'm repeating myself if i always wear shorts and skirts. Love this outfit though! and the shirt is really nice xx

  9. I love the half-tucked, half not tucked shirt! It's so great. And I would never have thought to pair navy with the forest green cardigan. But it really works.

    Hope you start feeling better girl!

  11. Love your combination of colours, the pops of orangey brown from the scarf and bag really set your outfit off.

    Hope you feel better soon. x

  13. hmm i live in my jeans - but i know what you mean - it is kinda the lazy style option. You make jeans looks slick though so no worries there! ck :) x

  15. Well you definitively look stylish wearing them in this way. But I do really understand what you mean. I feel so 'normal' and unstylish when I wear jeans. And since I almost only wear dresses I don't have anything nice to wear on top of my jeans. And they are so uncomfortable! I just love wearing tights!

  16. love the polka dots and that green color is just gorgeous!

  17. I love my Topshop Jamie jeans, could not be without them. I love your snood and cardi too, nothing like a good knit to survive the January blues.

  18. I know what you mean about jeans! For some reason I never want to take an outfit picture when I'm wearing them, probably because I'm really short and they make my legs look more stumpy and weird than they are. When you have a dress or skirt on legs just look so much nicer :) Although saying that I also need black jeans at the moment but begrudge spending £40 in Topshop too! I also love the snood you're wearing :)

  19. i have exactly the same problem. and i can't seem to find nice jeans anywhere. and i don't want to spend a lot of money on them because i always feel like i don't look stylish enough if i wear them which makes me feel bad all day.
    nice to know i'm not the only one :)
    i love your topshop blouse btw! when did you get it?

  23. I hardly wear jeans ever, but there are some occasions when I wish I owned more, just so I could throw them on.
    hope you feel better :)

  24. I know what you mean. I've pretty much given up on jeans entirely, because they never fit me properly. They're always way too long, and usually way too baggy. Probably because I'm so short. I'd love to have a nice pair though, just to wear every now and then!

  25. Very cute outfit. Love that forest green. I feel like green is making such a comeback.

  28. i feel exactly the same about jeans. i rarely wear them because i feel boring in them, but actually sometimes they can look good, i think u look stylish in a really effortless way in these photos. i love the snood too.

    p.s. i cant stop noticing that white plastic bottle lid on the floor in your photos! i wonder how long it will live there for...
