Patterned Jeans & Wellies...

Just a quick post tonight as I'm already in my thermal PJ's ready for bed. I know - I get all the most glamourous brands approaching me. There's Lisa Eldridge going to the Elle Style Awards in a gifted Chanel dress. Am I envious? Not one bit - I have cosy thermals from Damart!

So today, for a change from the usual denim, I went for a bit of leg drama. I've quite a few pairs of patterned jeans but I've not been feeling the love for them the past few months...

Floral Jeans - TU @ Sainsburys (SS12 - similar here & here)
Navy Lightweight Top - Dorothy Perkins (similar)
Grey Wool Scarf - Benetton (similar)
Dark Denim Shirt - Boden
Grey Ankle Boots - Clarks (old - similar here & here)
I mean, they look ok and all that but I'm feeling like patterned skinnies have done their thing and it's time to move on. Judging by the street style photos coming from London and New York, distressed denim is definitely the jeans style of the fashionable peeps. But this is no time for rash fashion decisions so I've bunged these ones in the summer bag and will think about it again when the weather's a bit warmer!
In other news today, the girls got some new Target Dry wellies. I'm sure I've mentioned before that Target Dry are a local company, based here in Belfast and today we were invited to their offices so the girls could chose the pattern they liked most in the new range of kids' wellies..needless to say, pink featured heavily.

Ok, it's past my bedtime now so I'll bid you good night. Hope half term is treating you well - oh and watch out for some new scarves arriving in the shop tomorrow and for anyone wondering, all the leopard print colours are back in stock

  2. Love the wellies - my little girl would love a pair of them. My patterned jeans have also not had so many outings lately - I just didn't feel like wearing them in all this rain I think! You look amazing in this pair ! X

  4. The jeans are fabulous Avril....shame you are not feeling the love at the mo! The colours are gorgeous and you have styled them to perfection!
    What I'd do for a pair of the thermal PJ's, bet they are toasty! The welly's are absolutely adorable....so cute! x

  5. I think the floral jeans look fab on you, I am sure once we get some really sun you will be feeling the love for them again as they are gorgeous colours! Enjoy your cosy thermals I am sure you will get more wear out of them than a Chanel dress?!!! X

  6. Why dont you change up the look by adding a mini skirt ontop or a short skater dress in a plain colour and then have some costume jewellery made to match the jeans? It looks good in my head anyway! with a smile....x

  7. Avril, I need to ask about your specs! I like the style of them, am wondering where they are from, and are they new? X

    1. Hi Jules, they're Firmoo ones I bought last year in their sale. Will try to find a link when I'm back at the laptop but I knew I wanted grey frames so I just searched by colour on their site and found those - think their were only $30! Ax

    2. Cool - good price too! A link would be great if you can find it, cheers :)

    3. Check me getting all good on my phone-have managed to cut the link...now to see if I can paste it... http://www.firmoo.com/eyeglasses-p-2242.html
      See if that works Jules & let me know of not! X

    4. Thanks Avril, the link works! The glasses look good - and they're down to $10! The only problem now is how much it costs to buy super-thin lenses for my terrible eyes ;) They seem to be a good fit for you and I think we may have a similar face shape - I sometimes find it difficult to find specs to fit as my face is quite narrow.

  8. H, yes I am a bit like you, I have a couple of patterned pairs, and they are not making my heart sing right now......But maybe as you say come the summer I will fall in love again! Love the kiddies wellies......such fun! xx

  10. Loving the jeans! I've seen some lovely printed trousers for next season but I just don't think I'd pull that look off! xxx

  11. You are lucky Avril, I struggle with patterned jeans (remember the leopard print?!) but your legs still look long and slim! xx

  12. I am the same, haven't worn my floral jeans for ages. I only bought them last summer so will have to think of new ways to style them - maybe when we can wear flats we will like them again! Abbi x

  13. A definite "Yes" vote from me for the floral jeans - I think they look really good, and I hope perhaps the sunny weather will help bring the flowers out !
