While undertaking a wardrobe clear-out earlier this week I rediscovered several pairs of once-loved jeans languishing in a forgotten pile. While I have been more adventurous with my denim recently, playing with coloured and printed denim, I do think most of us are guilty of reaching straight for the skinnies.

So when I spotted this pair of boyfriend jeans I decided it was time to give them an outing. And I’ve worn them every day since. Isn’t it weird how a pair of jeans that are barely looser than a straight leg felt baggy at first? I think it might be time to break out my flares again, to help me gain a sense of perspective…

Do you have a favourite pair of jeans or do you like to mix up your silhouettes?

Speaking of boyfriends, Chris and I spent yesterday afternoon having a lovely, lazy wander around the V&A museum. We’ve both only been once before and I think we enjoyed it a lot more this time, although I think it’s somewhere you could visit every week of the year and still discover something new every time. If you’re a Eurythmics fan you must visit The House of Annie Lennox display, and I loved the Beatrix Potter exhibition. I hope you’re having a lovely weekend!

p.s. Want to see an ‘outtake’ from when Chris was taking these photos? I think Amber would be proud.

    Very pretty. I’ve been looking for a good boyfriend jeans for a while now, but the ones I’ve tried so far, all made me look a bit clinched… I don’t know, maybe I’m just not tall enough for them. Until I find the perfect pair, I guess I’ll just stick to my skinnies. ;)
    I love the H&M jumper btw. it’s so cute!!
    Wonderful and Marvelous

    I really like the way you have styled them ! I used to wear them lots when I was back in college.

    You look so casually chic, love the jeans. I wear all shapes of jeans at the moment. I actually realised I never do ‘everyday’ outfit posts x

    I look like a bag head in boyfriend jeans :( You really look nice in them though, I might be willing to give our relationship (the jeans) another go…and I love your Marc B bag. :)

    I love boyfriend jeans (although perhaps not the term too much!). I wear mine like you rolled up, but right now I am going for a not-so-extreme jean from Zadig et Voltaire

    I love the sweater that you paired it with. It looks well put together and very comfortable.
