The standing jeans…

Friday, 4 November 2011

Yesterday morning I got up with bravado and decided to wear my ‘standing jeans’ – you know the ones I’m talking about? The ones so tight that you have to undo the top button to sit down (and then forget that the top button is undone and proceed to have a long conversation with a work colleague with your top button undone…. oops). Or the ones that are so tight that you have to lie down to take them off? After 10 minutes of shuffling, squeezing and cursing to get the jeans on, 5 minutes later they came off again! I am so over discomfort! This winter, I have decided that warmth and comfort takes precedent over everything else! This doesn’t mean frumpy or unflattering outfits, just something cute that preferably I can breath in.

The staples: slouchy stocking cap, high winter boots, enormous woollen scarf, striped long sleeve t-shirt, tailored yet relaxed jeans, faux fur vests and belted cardigans seems to be on my radar. Here’s my inspiration:

  1. Oh I love all these images, especially the first one it looks so perfect!
    There is nothing more uncomfortable than forcing yourself in to a pair of jeans! You feel not right all day.
    I'm definitely with you on Winter cosy's!

  2. Oh yes, the 'standing jeans', I know them. Haven't worn them in some time. At least in the cold season the comfortable chic takes over. :) Have a wonderful weekend, Meghan!
