It's not in my jeans

Buying jeans is my worst task ever. In fact, because my legs look stumpy in most cuts/fits/styles, I don't really wear them anymore. Even thinking about jean shopping now is giving me jean fear. How many times can I say jeans?

Anyway I reckon it's the fact they come in inches, you can't just grab your usual dress size and be done with it, oh no. You need to deliberate whether to squeeze into the inches you want to be, or embrace the inches you know you'll be (especially after Christmas) and be done with it. Unfortunately I always go for the former and tell myself that the necessary extra tug around my belly will give with time, then they get tumble-dried and the jean fear sets in again. It's like a big vicious jean cycle.

As much as I'd love to hide in my legging bubble, I'm making an effort to be healthier this year and do some toning up at the same time. Once I have the Kayla Itsines pins of dreams I'm going to be a smug shopper and shimmy my bootay into every pair just because I can. Skinny jeans, bootcut jeans, boyfriend jeans, none will be safe!

I've been told that True Religion jeans are a good investment if you're a hardcore denim fan. They're not the cheapest around but the prices are on a par with Levi's, and if you're off to America anytime soon they're a lot cheaper over there! They've got a tonne of skinny styles to choose from, my faves are the Chrissy Super Skinny Women's jean which look sort of acid washed and would make me feel down with the kids with the whole 90's fashion re birth. I also really like the look of the boyfriend jeans for the summer, hot weather and tight denim is not a nice thing.

Where do you get your jeans from? Any recommendations?


  1. From the ages of around 14 to 21 I lived in jeans. Now I only own 2 pairs and they only come out every few months.
    The best pair of jeans that I've ever had (and sadly ruined with paint) were from Forever 21. They cost less than a tenner, and fit so nicely. Every time I go to the Trafford Centre I go into F21 to see if I can find a similar pair. I haven't yet.
    Zara skinny jeans are also nice, but they tend to get baggy quickly

  2. Lovely jeans - I'm definitely a dress/skirt kind of girl and never wear jeans, I only own one pair and they are from ASOS! :)

    I have a new post on my blog, would love to know your thoughts:

  3. I completely agree that finding jeans is the most difficult task! I'm pear shaped and have a huge problem finding jeans that will fit over my bum but aren't baggy elsewhere. I've recently found that New Look jeans are the only ones that work for me.
