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)

What have I been dreaming about this past week?

Well as you will all appreciate the first week back at work after a holiday is strange especially when you arrive home in winter. I have the tan but it isn’t really the season to show it off!

Thankfully I do love my job and I am always happy to return to my personal shopping and all of the lovely clients that I see on a daily basis.

There was a lot of sadness in store as there have been few colleagues who have passed away and my week ended with the passing away of a wonderful aunt who was 91 but as my dad said to me don’t be sad just think of all the happy times you shared.

I have been on a wardrobe refresh mission this week but I am struggling to find pieces that I love (for work) however I did find these Michael Kors sneakers yesterday (House of Fraser), they are perfect for running around store all day and will work dresses, jeans and pants.

I will wearing them with an Isabel Marant dress tomorrow! (cant wait)

I have to admit there is always a bag in my weekly mix, this week there two opps!

I have looked at the Chanel wallet on a chain bags for quite a few years so I was delighted to find this Gucci version of the same thing, it is so pretty….

Gucci wallet on a chain £715 here















I really do need (yes really!) a new pair of black ankle length wide leg  trousers to wear to work. I have so many gorgeous shirts, tees and shoes and the trousers make a great backdrop.

I love this houndstooth pair at Zara to wear with a white shirt to tee.

Zara houndstooth culottes £29.99 here


I think this black  pair are too good to miss (for now!)

Zara cropped trousers £19.99 here

This blouse will definitely be on list of things to try this week I do believe it has huge potential (we love potential)

Zara blouse with contrast topstitching £29.99 here

I am currently a little obsessed by belt bags, particularly any by Gucci but for the amount of times it would be used I think the price point needs to be lower!

Topshop Queenie Quilted Bum Bag £22 here





Must have item of the day Gucci striped sneakers………….

I saw these sneakers in Selfridges a few days ago and they have been in my head ever since. I keep thinking about how many times I could wear them, they would be perfect for running around store (personal shopping means walking) and I would wear them on all other occasions forever (they are so pretty)

The possibilities are endless dresses, skirts, shorts, jeans……………..

Great Xmas Gift Ideas from House of Fraser | Aspinal’s Marylebone Tote|

I had a conversation at work today about  all of the brands that are available on line but not in store and this started me thinking!!

Do people realise that you can buy Aspinal of London online and also that there are  currently discounts available on selected products. The discounts will be applied when the item is added to your bag.

I have long been a fan of both the  Marylebone and Hepburn bags but there are so many other pieces that would make fantastic gifts for those you love.

I do love the union flag hip flask as well, I am sure I could put it too good use!!
