Jay Jay’s denim

Now I don’t really ever shop at Jay Jay’s, except maybe the odd basic. However on my lunch break the other day I went for a gander there and found a lovely pair of mid/high-waisted denim shorts. They caught my eye because they’re a lovely cut and a nice traditional pair of denims. However I was surprised to discover the denim quality was really quite good. Definitely a great pair of shorts for a festival.

Australia day outfit. If you’re wearing Aussie themed clothes with some form of the word Australia/n on it then it’s a necessity to take a trip to Supré. Arguably the best shop for Aussie Day wear. Later on in the day I ended up with the Australian flag tattooed onto my cheek. Fake, of course, but damn hard to remove.
Top: Supré
Shorts: True Religion
Shoes: Vans Authentic

Below is a cute trench that, alas, is not mine but can be found from Forever New. It’s amazing, right? Too bad I live in some of the most ridiculous heat and humidity in Australia.

Bold Coloured Pants!

AG Adriano Goldschmied–The Farrah Skinny Crop in Cobalt

I never thought I’d like coloured jeans (especially after the incident when I was 12 and my mother bought be a pair of hot purple jeans from Jay-Jays which I turned my nose up at and refused to wear), but lately I keep coming across coloured pants that I find incredibly funky and cool.

Blues and pinks are my favourites of the bold hues gracing the threads of pants at the moment and the latest pair I’m drooling over are The Farrah Skinny Crop by AG Adriano Goldschmied in a lovely cobalt colour. While the kelly green and red colours are also very funky, I prefer this lovely colour of blue.

These pants would go lovely with a feminine girly top to balance out the bold colour and some lovely tan sandals, perhaps. Although, a leather biker jacket would definitely spell out rock chic.

Coloured pants are definitely a trend to try; just make sure you find the right cut for your shape–a skinny jeans in a bright hue may not be for you. So whether you wear a coloured skinny jeans or not, make sure the cut isn’t too wide in the leg. Wider leg pants in bright hues may look cool in wools, silks etc, but perhaps not so much in denim.

Jegging Lust!

I’m a huge fan of JBrand’s leggings. They’re light, they’re easy to move in and they look oh-so-hot! However, I recently discovered True Religion also does a denim legging. I’ve never had to good fortune of running into a pair. With my father taking a trip to America I’m very tempted to ask him to get me a pair, but I’m concerned they won’t be as fantastic on as the JBrand jeggings. Comment below to let me know your opinion of them!
