Top: New Look *** Jeans: American Eagle *** Flats: Dunnes *** Bracelet: Primark

Blogger went down when I made my last post but thankfully seems to be restored now. This title is stolen from a post I made last year called "I now own a pair of pants". Truthfully, I didn't wear the pants a second time and I probably won't wear these jeans a second time but its still fun to switch things up a little now and then! Back in my youth (gosh, I sound like an old lady!) I loved to wear skinny jeans. I followed the whole "emo" and "scene" trends so I had about twenty pairs of black skinny jeans which all looked identical. I think wearing jeans every day for so long caused me to dislike them now.
A couple of months ago I had a gift card for American Eagle and I was struggling to find something to spend my last couple of dollars on when I spotted these babies on sale. They were $49.95 originally but they were marked down and AE had an additional promotion with 30% extra off all clearance items, so they were only about $15 in the end. I'm not a jeans-and-teeshirt kind of gal, and probably never will be. Even though I paired the jeans with flats, I think my top dressed the outfit up a little! I read reviews about AE jeans fitting small so I sized up by two sizes just to be safe. My jeans are a size US 16 which is a UK 20! I am definitely not a size 20 so just a heads up to anyone thinking about ordering from them. The top is a purchase from New Look a couple of months ago and they currently have them back in stock in various colors. It sits slightly awkwardly on my belly but the little ruffles along the neckline are too cute!

This week has been much better than last, today being the first day of June has helped too. June is one of my favorite months of the year, I just love how perfect and calm everything feels before the big summertime rush. I'm considering going to the city for a night or two next week to meet with some old friends and probably pamper myself a little bit too! I shouldn't be spending money right now as I am trying to save but I think its just what I need.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far! Thanks for all of the sweet comments on my last couple of entries. They mean a lot to me! Slightly off topic but did any of you girls see the older lady playing the keyboard on Britains Got Talent? She is all kinds of adorable! I don't follow the show but I seen a short clip and she definitely stole my heart.

PS. I finished the 30 day shred a couple of days ago so i'll be posting a full review of it soon! I am very happy with the results overall, the only place I didn't see a huge change was my upper arms (the part I wanted to "target" most, grrr!) but it was still worth it.

  1. Wow, they look good on you! I never wear trousers usually, but this summer I've somehow ended up with two pairs of jeans, and I don't feel as uncomfortable in them as I thought I would...

  7. I really like the jeans, I love AE and make sure to go lots whenever I'm in Canada/America. The sizes can be a bit funny there though. Love the lil stud detail on the pockets!

  9. Nice to see you mix up your style a bit. The one-shoulder ruffled top SURELY makes this a chic look. You look as cute as ever with your sweet smile, cute face, and lovely hair. The bracelet is lovely as well. Of course, jeans with ballet flats usually spells "cute" every time.

  10. Those jeans look really flattering on you! But you're right, wearing jeans is definitely a rare occasion for me. Why be restricted by material when you can wear leggings and tights and be free as a whistle!
    Well done on completing the 30 day shred, think I'm ready for level 2 but I'm scared haha! xx

  18. Dee, you beautiful girly! I love those jeans on you! Makes me want/need/must-buy a pair of bleached denim jeans this Summer (: It looks just lovely with your floaty top and simple accessorising. I think I slightly prefer straight-leg jeans to skinny jeans, I'm so short that skinny jeans just don't work on me!

    So glad your week has been better than last week my lovely. Beginning a new month always helps too! I've got a fresh train of thought now and everything ;) xx

  19. I think those jeans look great on you! I wouldn't have thought someone could work a light wash and make it cute that why. I tend to shy away from light washes myself.

    Love,

  22. I have so many reminders of my scene days lying around, some of them I'm quite fond of like my septum piercing and my creepers, the others clutter my closet. I really don't wear jeans anymore, they're unconfortable and simply umbearable during the summer months, but maybe when Autumn rolls around I'll try again? Yours do look very nice, they're very flattering.

  30. You look lovely in jeans. The top made your outfit look feminine. Unlike you, I'm a jeans and t-shirt type of girl and I rely a lot on accessories to jazz up my look.

  36. Lovely outfit, the bracelet is gorgeous.
    Those jeansa actually make you look really slim, certainly not a 20, good lord sizing annoys me! I own everything from a UK 8-16!! (granted only one or 2 things in 8 and 16 but it just goes to show).
