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)

Must have item of the day Other Stories satin bomber………

Love the colour palette of this really cute satin bomber it is just perfect for spring. You can see below that I am already planning a few outfits to wear!

 

& Other Stories Satin Bomber £95 here

I would team this jacket with Kurt Geiger Lowdown wedges, I love the striped platforms and the grey suede brogue.. How many outfits could you create with just a few simple basics? I am thinking navy/black culottes, dress or jeans with a simple tee or knit for a great outfit.

Must have item of the day Kurt Geiger Silver Slides with fringing…….

I know  it is only two weeks since I returned from Peru and I am still wearing the tan like a badge of honour BUT I do think these slides would be perfect for our Lima Dreaming walks (they always end with a cocktail)

They are high enough (do not like flats for walking) to be comfortable, pretty enough to wear with sun dresses/shorts and the leather looks soft enough to be comfortable (you cannot wear plasters they look horrible)

I also love that they are available in store (House of Fraser) so I can try them before I ordering them.
