Rocking the messy bun look. 
If you missed my Instagram confession; this is how I put my hair up for a shower then don't bother to do it

As much I LOVE my midi skirts, I wear jeans a lot.  I love them and they are practical for running around after 2 small girls.

There are so many different styles and cuts of jeans out there I simply can't keep up with what's "in".  I saw a fabulous and stylish London blogger rocking flares, saying they were back in a big way.  Really?  Others are getting back into their boot cuts; lots are still in their skinnies and I'm still seeing lots of distressed denim (which makes me happy, more on why here).  So what's the look in jeans??

I have no idea.  I say wear what you like and feel comfortable in. Unless you're a guy and wearing those jeans that hang below your underwear, that just looks silly.  Why even bother with pants?!

The jeans I'm wearing here I've had for a number of years.  I bought them from Tractor Supply (seriously!) whilst in Upstate New York.  They are Wrangler "Q Baby" jeans with a 36" (92cm) inseam - yay!  I like the dark colour and as they are riding jeans they don't gap in the back. 

On a side note: can I just say how much I love American sizing... these jeans are a 7/8.  Ha!  Love it!  The Australian ladies know what I'm talking about!!

This jumper (sweater for those who don't speak Australian) I bought from H & M (in USA) more than 10 years ago and I still love it.  I remember buying it purely because I was excited that the sleeves were long enough #tallgirlproblems! 

I'd love to know what your favourite style / cut of jeans is??


  1. As long as jeans are comfy I like a range of styles. My go to's are skinny jeans though!


    1. You're so right Ruth - comfort is number 1!

  2. I love your U.S. finds. :) I completely agree with not worrying about which jeans are "on trend" and just wearing what suits one's shape or whatever is most comfortable. This is the perfect casual look! And I wish my "shower hairdo" was as cute as yours. P.S. I thought I had added your blog to my Bloglovin' feed but for some reason it wasn't there. Now it is and I'm catching up on all of your posts so prepare for a flood of comments!

    1. Thanks Beth! I'm looking forward to the comment flood!!!! x Allison
