Ripped jeans, skin was showing

I've not done any shopping for a while, which meant I had a massive splurge on ASOS on Wednesday, the plan was to order a load of stuff and send most of it back. Yeah that didn't happen, I'm keeping the lot. Clever. Expect a few more posts soon with my other purchases.

Anyway, these jeans. There's something a bit hideous about them, but I love them. I've never really been a fan of light coloured denim on account of my thunder thighs, but sometimes you can make an exception.

I've kept it simple with a black top and cardigan and my favourite bright pink pumps. I've also matched my bra to my shoes, cos I'm stylish like that.

These jeans are really quite ripped, I'm probably sporting a but much flesh for work, but that's nothing new.

Magnificent 7th - BBQ

It's been another month, I am getting useless at posting lately, work is crazy which doesn't help. I've had quite a few purchases of late so I need to get back into the swing of things. 

This month's theme is BBQ. Now I've not been to a single BBQ this year, that's criminal. However, if I had, I'd be wearing something like this.

Now clearly I am not outside enjoying a hamburger or two, I'm in my office which is mostly definitely not as appealing, but try to picture the scene :) 

I've had these jeans for a few months now along with the lighter version and they have been a wardrobe staple this summer. I love the fact you can dress them up with shoes or wear with flip flops or converse for a totally relaxed look.

The shoes are another firm favourite and the top was a bargain in the recent ASOS sale. It's see-through, which is not very office appropriate, but I don't get too concerned about that sort of stuff. Plus, I'm pretending to be at a BBQ, right?

 Throw on a cardigan for when it gets colder and I'm good to go.
