Where to get the best petite jeans

Let me tell you something about me, not only I am short, but my legs are disproportionately short compared to the rest of my body. Yes, it’s true. Buying trousers is always a bit of a mission and even petite ranges are sometimes a bit too long for me.

I’ve recently been on the search for a new pair of jeans and this has made me realize how it’s not always easy if you are petite. After trawling lot’s of shops and trying different styles and brands, I finally got the perfect pair in Marks & Spencer, one place I didn’t even realize did short length jeans.

Here are some of my favourite places to buy petite jeans:

New Year, More Style

I can’t believe we are already in the middle of January. The days and weeks seem to fly by and spring will hopefully be here soon. One of my blogging resolutions for the year is to produce more style / fashion posts. This was my intention when I created the blog 18 months ago but somehow fashion got a bit sidetracked  in favour or parenting and interior posts.

I am not working at the moment, and haven’t been since the end of October. This has really affected my style, I am making less of an effort and I find myself wearing jeans and scruffy jumpers on a daily basis. It’s easy to get into a bit of a rut if you spend a lot of time at home. My short term goal is to do a bit of a wardrobe clear out and start wearing anything but jeans.

Joules Spring / Summer ’17 Press Day

Joules always springs to mind when thinking of quintessentially British brands. Their colourful clothes and accessories are beautiful and their homeware range is quite bold and perfect for the modern home. I was absolutely delighted to receive an invite for the Spring /Summer ’17 press preview in London and could not wait to see what they had in store for next summer.

Fashion coffee table books to gift this Christmas

Fashion, photography and textiles are three passions of mine so it comes as no surprise that I love books, especially coffee table ones. Coffee table books make great Christmas gifts, especially if you have a fashionista to buy for. They usually have gorgeous, beautifully curated pictures and they look great either on display or on a bookshelf.

Here below I have put together a selection of my favourite ones, so have a read if you are looking for inspiration.

One of the most popular magazines in the world, Vogue, is now 100 years old, so what a better way of celebrating their anniversary than publishing a book celebrating their best moments. Vogue 100: A century of Style revisits the best moments in photography, fashion and beauty. It features iconic designers and photographers that have been influential in the world of fashion in the past 100 years.

Leopard Print Edit

For many years I have been after a leopard print coat but somehow I have never been brave enough to purchase one. It might be my partner’s references to  Kat Slater -remember her? whenever I mention leopard prints or might just be me not being adventurous enough to wear bold clothes.

I am getting older and I guess with getting older comes a bit more of confidence so  I might finally take the plunge and get myself a leopard print coat. But fear not, coats are not the only leopard print item you can find in the High Street at the moment, see my selection below of some of my fave items
