Skinny jeans

I have a love/hate relationship with skinny jeans. I've tried oh so many times to get on with them starting when I was a bit of a rocker with my converse. But I'm a short house (standing 5 foot 3") and not on the skinny side - i'll admit to being a curvy size -12/14 depending on where I shops. I joke and say I have "Thunder thighs" - I think they look huge but I guess we always over aggravate parts of ourselves that we hate. I guess? Sometimes I see myself in them and start rethinking I need to loose weight just because how my thighs look in them. Gah. Maybe I just need to wear them more.
Jumper - H and M
Top - Zara
Jeans - Dotty P's
Boots - New Look
Necklace - Primark

Is there any piece of clothing you wish you could get your head around to wearing more? Or do you just wear things no matter what?


  1. Thunder thighs?? You're joking right? You have a lovely figure!and those jeans look fab on you.

    I generally try to dress for my figure (which is top heavy) so I don't wear shoulder pads or puffy sleeves or many low cut tops...(I watch too much Gok Wan) xxx

  2. I struggle with trousers in general, none seem to suit me properly, especially jeans!

  3. I so want to wear skinny jeans and jeggings but I am tres short and they are not the best on me! I have tried anyway...

  4. I think i'll just have to keep wearing them, get my head use to them. Hate how jeans get after a few wears and they get all baggy and they go in the knees. Make me look like and old man lol

  5. i have trouble with skinny jeans too.haha it makes my legs look big. :D

  6. oh and you're going to Edinburgh soon? better keep yourself warm and bundled up. :D

  9. I think i'll have to find another pictures of my jeans - i think the lighting is making me look skinnier then I appear. that or I need my eyes checking!

  10. What are you on about, the jeans look fab! I wish I could pull off a pair of 70s high-waisted flares but I know they'd just look terrible on me.
