You have probably gathered by now that I live in denim and this outfit is a favourite that I wore back in March for Mr Bs birthday weekend getaway but I haven’t featured this outfit or these jeans on my blog before.
This little get-up features purchases from my New York trip plus a little bit of Barcelona! However all the clothes were purchased on sale making this a pretty cheap-ish outfit for the brands!
These jeans are J Brand purchased when I was in New York at Christmas in the Barneys sale. They are super tight, the tightest pair of jeans I own and I had to wriggle into them after eating a huge New York blueberry pancake breakfast, oh and having a dog run in and make me jump while in the changing room trying them on – anything can really happen in NYC!
They are a dark vintage wash blue with a grey suede stripe about 1inch wide running down the outside leg seem. The stripe tends to make the legs look longer and leaner especially when worn with heels. From memory I paid about $79 for these – total bargain!
My other two New York purchases in this feature are my boots from Rag & Bone and the oversized fishermans cardigan from an Elizabeth & James sample sale.
The boots are the Newbury style and they were at the top of my NY shopping list. Rag & Bone had them on sale and luckily I bagged the last pair in my size for only $180, sure my credit card statement had them as only £113 when I got home.
Elizabeth & James had a sample sale on while I was in the city, I couldn’t get there for the first day so I probably did miss some other awesome pieces but this cardigan with leather elbow patches and studding was only $75. A similar jumper I was looking at in Topshop before I went was much more than that!
The tee I bought from Maje when in Barcelona – that weekend turned out to be a bonkers and I run out of going out tops! Another on-sale item, think this was €39
Finishing it off is a metallic Miu Miu clutch – this was bought in the less exciting location of the Trafford Centre – Manchester! I was away with work one night, bored and this little piece of Miu Miu was calling my name.
Take off that cuddly cardigan, add a splash of lipstick and that outfit is bar ready!
PS : as this is one of my favourite denim outfits I thought I would submit it to the iheartifb : Share your favorite denim look!
