My search for the perfect jeans and pants, not easy!

As I am only 5’2″ I do struggle to find jeans and trousers that I love and that look good (proportion is everything).  This week I have been on an extensive search for both and my research I think has been very successful!

I did have an extra incentive as I am off to London on Thursday and I was looking for a casual outfit that would see me through the day (I know I have things I could have worn!)

My first task was jeans, I wanted then straight cropped but with a frayed hem oh and they had to be black! I love the pair I found at River Island (they are available in petite yeah) so much so I have ordered them in blue as well.

River Island Bella frayed hem jeans £42 here

I had only just found these jeans when I saw these Isabel Marant pants in Harvey Nichols (I always love a bit of Isabel).

Isabel Marant Weaver cropped pants £235 here

Decisions decisions! both would work so well with my intended outfit which also consists of  a black sweatshirt (Whistles of course) which I bought in store (House of Fraser)

Whistles Parisien sweatshirt £79 here

As my day will be spent walking I will also wear another of my in store purchases (House of Fraser)

Michael Kors Mindy Heart Lace Up Trainers £150 here

So which outfit will I be wearing? that will be the big question for me until Thursday., although if I wear my parka it will be jeans (too much khaki otherwise)
