A post with jeans, what's going on?! I used to wear jeans all the time (Topshop Pippas, how good were they?) but for the last couple of years all I've worn is dresses and skirts. I've bought a few different blouses and shirts recently and decided I needed some jeans to wear them with so ventured into Topshop and came out with these Kristen high-waisted skinnies. They're surprisingly comfy as jeans go and I love the high-waistedness. Considering buying myself a pair of bright blue ones too!

I had a family meal out for my Grandad's birthday last week so I decided to wear my new jeans with this top from New Look to go to it. I love this burnt orange colour, it always reminds me of autumn - which is obvs the best season because of Halloween and my birthday! Speaking of Halloween, have any of you decided what you're going as yet? I want to start planning early, but I have no idea what to go as this year!

Do you prefer jeans or dresses, or a bit of both?

  5. I really like the colour of the top. I don't own that many pairs of jeans now, only two. I find it hard to find the perfect pair and only topshop petite jeans fit me but I find their quality is so bad for such expensive price. (i'm such a tight git!) The colour washes and fade so easily. x

  6. I love this outfit, especially the necklace! I'm more of a jeans girl, I practically live in them! I've already decided what I'm going as: goth/rocker. Purely because I saw a dark purple lipstick in Topshop that I must get my hands on!! xx
