There's something you may not know about me, but I pick my clothes based on how comfortable they are. Sometimes I'm a little sick of wearing skinny jeans as I wear them nearly every day at work, so I set out to find the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans. But as I'm someone with wide hips, all of the usual suspects just enlarged them, until now. A few people recommended these on Twitter, so I popped into River Island to find them.
The jeans are the Ashley Slim Boyfriend Jeans in a dark wash from River Island and boy, they are the comfiest jeans I have ever owned. I just bought my usual size in them and I have a feeling I was particularly bloated that day as now they're a little slack. But hey, that means I can wear them when I want to eat a lot, right? I wouldn't usually look in River Island, but in the past year or so, it seems to have completely changed.
This look is my usual weekend attire - jeans, cotton top and trainers. I think you are either a trainers person or you aren't and I definitely am. My New Balance trainers have had a lot of love since I bought them so they're a little past their best. I just can't be one of those people who get quite dressed up in heeled boots etc, I only do that on an evening if I'm going to an event or for dinner. Comfort with style, sort of.
In the middle of the photos being taken, this little dachshund walked past with his owner and I just had to stop them for a quick photo. Any dog called Winston is photo worthy, plus dachshunds are my absolute favourites.
Thanks to Kate for taking these photos, she may be borrowed for photos more since these came out better than I thought they would!
