Before we reached the shops, it hit me. I wanted ripped jeans. I really like them, have thought about buying a pair for ages and I thought they'd be a perfect ‘rock and roll’ choice for the night ahead, the gigs to follow and other, more dressed down, nights out.
River Island was our first stop. It’s one of those shops that I often pop into but rarely purchase anything. I find that their clothes are often too embellished, too short (tops and skirts) and therefore, too young.
But, on occasions, they hit the spot and I make three purchases in one go.
When my little man took these pictures of me in the snow/rain/snow (‘make up your minds!’ as my mum would say), he said to me, looking agape at the jeans, “What’s happened to them?!”
“I bought them like this” I replied. “Well, that’s a dumb idea!” he said and I kind of get where he’s coming from.
Being somewhat worn out already, and not helped by the fact that when I put them on my foot always ends up through the knee hole making it just a little bit bigger than the hole-making elves in the factory intended - who knows how long they’ll last? (Feeling a bit the same about myself right now).
Right, let’s talk about the top (no link available, sorry). It’s grey. It’s slouchy. It’s amazingly soft and I love it! It’s versatile too as I can wear it for work and play. Had it been available in white, black and blue I would have bought them all. But it wasn't.
However, I bought this blue top, which is similar (and available in many colours) and does almost the same thing – though it’s somehow more work-y and less play-y in my eyes. I think it's because the fabric is totally different to the grey one, not as silky, but hangs well nevertheless.
And I thought I’d throw in these shots too as the weather definitely dictates a warm coat – especially when your top has no arms and your jeans have air vents!
As I said, I wore the jeans (ok, ok, jeggings!) and top for the gig and I also wore them for a meal out last weekend to a newly opened restaurant/pub/bar in St. Albans called Dylans The Kings Arms - definitely worth a visit. Take a look at my review HERE.
I'll be back again soon. Hope everyone is well and for those who were partaking in the Dryathlon, very well done! Now pour yourself a celebratory large one. Cheers!
