I guess I haven’t been exactly that ‘fashion like‘ since moving to the US, I just haven’t really been that inspired by fashion since the move. However I have finally stepped out of my blue jean comfort zone and braved wearing the Frame Denim white jeans I bagged in the Selfridges sale last summer for just £30! These jeans still had the tags on months later! I just feel far more comfortable wearing white denim in California in the sunshine, I couldn’t bring myself to wear them in the UK. I’ve even picked up a winter tan so I don’t look all pale and pasty when wearing them but I still have that lingering fear of spilling a drink or dropping my dinner all over them – that’s just the sort of thing that would happen to me. These are Le Skinny de Jeanne fit and they are super skinny but really quite stretchy, I had to go down a size in these.
As the weather has been a bit milder I also finally took the labels off a JCrew shirt Mr B bought for me at Christmas. I love this shirt as the denim chambray is so, so silky soft and it’s the perfect just oversized boyfriend fit, while still being fitted. This ‘Always Chambray’ shirt appears to be a staple JCrew item and is one of the items that rarely seems to go on sale.
Now lets see how long I can go without a spillage on those jeans!
