I'm finding I'm wearing a lot of jeans. Quite often when I wade through my endless supply of clothes in the morning, I'm picking up jeans. I don't know what on earth is happening either - those midi skirts are gathering dust. Maybe I've had too much of a good thing recently and fancy a change. I do know that these jeans are keeping me warm in this cold snap! I also know that this top has fast become one of my favourite things to wear. I bought it thanks to a birthday voucher - thanks E! - and it's been worn far too much already. That's always the sign of a good purchase.

Can we just chat about this lippie? I was given this lipstick via work and have fallen in love. Come payday and I'll be buying a few more. I've already got a Tarte blush which I picked up in NYC last year and have been meaning to sample a few of their products for ages! Any lipstick recommendations?


  1. Love this outfit, I need a pair of these jeans! x

  2. I am wearing trousers most days at the moment due to the cold weather - something that would have been unheard of 18 months ago as I was then a skirts/dresses only person. I have not ventured into jeans yet though as I am not fond of denim. I see you describe your jeans as super soft and wonder if they are denim or another material.

    1. Hey Rebecca,

      They're not as stiff as normal denim as they have quite a bit of stretch. Hope that helps!


  3. I'm not a jeans person but recently I've been craving a nice pair, maybe one day I'll be brave. You look lovely <3 xo

  4. I adore your shoes! XX

  5. Your outfit is gorgeous Sophie, loving the shoes! xx


  6. This outfit is ace and I love that tunic top. I have been wearing a ot of jeans recently too, I think I need to rediscover my dresses!
