Only Patch Denim Jeans & Star Scarf

It's Monday so what better day to show you my mad jeans? If you're an avid blog reader (thinking WIT and The Frugality here), you'll know that many an on-trend blogger has been sporting this style of jean. I'm not one to follow all the trends (did I even need to tell you that?) as mostly, they don't really work for me what with my life revolving more around the school run than working in fashion but this one I think does. I've already got over my distressed jeans reluctance (thanks to my Maison Scotch beauties) so I'm just stepping it up a notch now with these...
Only Jeans - ASOS
The 9 year old asked if I ripped them myself...

Jeans - Only (Danish brand) from ASOS
Navy Tee - Dorothy Perkins (SS12)
Scarf - SGS Shop
Boots - M&S (AW12)
Cross Body Bag - Boden Canonbury Clutch (Current)
Size wise - they come up pretty good. I'm wearing the size 29 and I'm a 10-12 in jeans usually. A little lower slung than my Maison Scotch ones but they fit well so I've not needed a belt with them.

Oh and here's where I fess up to another Boden purchase - the Canonbury Clutch (or in my case, the cross body - it works as both). LOVE it - it's filled the navy gap in my handbag collection since my quilted vintage one got damaged. And with 20% off and a £10 voucher, it was a no-brainer!

Till tomorrow my friends,




  1. Nice! I love my h&m one's!

  2. Those jeans are amazing Avril!! My favourite jeans ever are a pair of Only ones I got from ASOS years ago, I haven't been able to find the gorgeous blue colour in any other jeans since, and I think these are exactly the same shade. Loving the rips and patches, I bought a maternity pair with patches a few weeks back. What is the sizing like on these?

    1. Hi Trea - just added a sentence there about the fit - thanks for the prompt! I am wearing 29 and I'm a 10-12 in jeans - they are slightly neater than the Maison Scotch 29 but not so much so that I'd need to size up. Have got more comfy as the day has gone on. xx

  3. Love the jeans, bag & whole outfit! x

  4. They look fabulous - very cool indeed!! Might have to order them as they are in the sale!

  5. Now Avril. I really didn't expect this - you are a dark horse. You are way ahead of me on the trends. I need to do some catching up! BTW, you have such great legs for skinny jeans.

  6. these jeans are too cute and love the scarf too!

  7. I think I'm on the fence for the moment with the jeans ... but LOVE the bag and the scarf!

  8. I love these - they are right up my street - so funky! Love the whole outfit Avril! xx

  9. Of course I adore these jeans, they look amazing and I'm kicking myself for leaving behind a pair in the charity shop a few months back! Love navy for Autumn, you look chic and stylish xxx

  10. Ooooh, I'm actually liking them and I didn't think I would be saying that! x

  11. You can get away with them no problem, I think they look fab and love the bag! x

  12. I'm in love with your jeans! So cool!!!

    ​With love,
    Elisa - ​My Fantabulous World

  13. Jeans look great and I really love your accessories x
