Stripes and Jeans

Morning:) Hope you all had a lovely weekend! At least the sun appeared and it seemed quite spring-like at times, but looking out at the wind and rain this morning I think our crazy weather will never grasp the meaning of true seasons!!

Anyhow as it was so nice I decided to snap a few photos of some recent purchases.


First up I think I have a major stripe addiction! I was having a little clear out the other day and found at least four nearly new striped tops from last year that I can wear this S/S season. I went to buy new jeans recently, spotted this lovely Zara number and I thought the loose shape and sleeve length would suit the new jeans style, so I added another basic stripe to my collection. 

Then on Friday I went into our local Heatons for a household item and came out with another striped top! I really need to stop now and look for other alternatives!!



Jeans|Vero Moda
 Stripe Top| Zara 
Tan  Boots|(old) Also love these
  Scarf|(old)  Similar Here
Leather Tan Belt|Next

Now for the jeans, these are my newest pair! A major breakthrough as I have finally got out of my skinnies, although I most definitely won't be abandoning them for good! A change is as good as a rest!!
 I love how these Vero Moda ones sit high up on the waist....the leg shape is a wider bootcut style without being too full on! I like them so much I may consider getting a full on flared pair next. I would like to try some styling like this for spring/summer...


Simple but stunning!

How fab are these dark denim with the leather top? .... really wish my hair would sit down like that!!


Here are some other jeans I am currently eyeing up


A good choice from the limited edition @ M&S for anyone dipping their toe in a wider leg jean



I love these black flares from Next, I must go try them on for fit! I have a sleeveless black silk blouse from Coast which I think would be lovely with these for a night out!




These mih Marrakesh flares would be perfect with a simple tee and wedge sandals for summer, a bit on the pricey side but they look fab!


This slouch flare style from Asos are also a lovely colour and not as expensive



Finally this is my new stripe top from Heatons! I like the denim turn up on the sleeves as it adds a little extra interest and think it will go nice with white jeans or a skirt for summer! It is also available in a red colourway, perfect for white summer shorts or cut offs.

It is also very good quality for the €15 price tag:)

Hope you all have a great week ahead:)
