Let me just start by saying that you don’t have to be a mum to wear mom jeans. OK.
There are three reasons I’ve fallen in love with them. One, they’re actually high-waisted on me which due to my long torso, never happens. Two, they’ve got that whole beaten-up, slouchy vibe going on. Three, They can be worn with anything.
I’ve styled them three different ways so you can see just how versatile they are.
I’m not going to lie, this has become my fail-safe weekend outfit. Firstly, you can’t ever go wrong with a striped top. Secondly, it looks even better when tucked into these high-waisted babies. It’s a casual, run-to-the-shops-then-straight-to-lunch outfit. It’s reliable, fail safe and bloody easy. That’s all you want at the weekend.

I have an obsession with borrowing Al’s clothes, in particular his shirts. I reached for his classic white one this time, rolled the sleeves, popped the collar and roughly tucked it in. Sorted.I also pulled out this sleeveless jacket which I got a little while back. It pulls this whole look together and gives a hint of sophistication. Add to that mix my shiny new white heels and we’re laughing. Perfect for a day in the office.

With a Crop Top
Crop tops scare the actual crap out of me. I figured since I wore them the first time round (when I was in my early teens) that I shouldn’t wear them again. And then I just so happened to feel brave – or stupid – enough to order one before Christmas to pair with my shimmering turquoise mermaid skirt.
And I wore it. Actually put it on and left the house. Well OK, I put it on at work and wore it to a Christmas party where I knew the lights would be dimmed. But I still wore it. Technically you could see about half an inch of stomach which I could cope with. This time though I’ve gone all out. I’m aware that while this might be out of my comfort zone and not the most flattering on me, I wanted to show that you can pair these two together. If I can, you definitely can.
