I have very bizarre arguments with myself over clothes. The deals I make (with myself) are seriously ridiculous. ‘If I’ve seen them on 3 separate occasions and still want them, they can be mine’ – yep, total justification Lily. Logic on point. I’d had a sly eye on both these jeans and shoes for a wee while, yesterday was the third time I’d spotted them both, and here we are.
In my defence, finding a pair of jeans that fit can be a mighty pain in the ass (sometimes literally) so when I come across a pair that hug in all the right places, I’m snapping them right up. This struggle is so real! I’m super picky about my denim too – really low-rise styles are a no-go when my body’s long enough already.
According to Pinterest and Instagram and the fashion powers-that-be, frayed hem jeans are a ‘thing’ this year. So here’s me being a trend whore and deciding to jump on the bandwagon. Any jeans that are ok to be a little short are good in my book. #Tallgirlproblems. I like trends for details like this. Trends for brand logos or ‘unflattering but cool and trendy’ clothes, not so much, but trends for things like frayed ankles? I can get on board with that. Sounds slightly weird that they’re described as a ‘chewed’ texture, but whatever.
Braving Saturday afternoon Primark turned out to be a good call too – I snapped up the last pair of these shoes in my size (#meanttobe) and have decided that lace ups and raw hems are a perfect match. Never mind that I’m about 2 years late to the lace ups trend; I can feel an obsession coming on anyway so they’ll probably crop up on my Insta approximately 50 times over the next month.

Happy Easter, anyway. 😀

[…] OOTD photo from said brunch. Off the shoulder top again, shocker. 3 months later and these jeans are still my faves and haven’t gone out of shape in the slightest – not bad considering how much […]
