Tall Mom Jeans review .

One of my friends saw me wearing these jeans and said I have never seen you in jeans before. 

……errrrm but I am constantly in skinny jeans ! Are guys really that unbothered about what women wear???

It eventually dawned on me that what he meant that he has never seen me in true demin jeans ( mom jeans) before .   It is often the case that we mistake the blend of demin, cotton and elastane in the form of high waisted skinny jeans to be true cotton demin. 

My friend was so right.  This is probably my first true demin in a very very long while. 

I kinda like it! 

I have envied my sister’s rocking their ‘mom jeans’.🙉 It been on my ‘to buy’ list for ages too.  The problem has always been finding one that would fit right.

The stretch in regular jeans have been a God send for me. Hence finding jeans without stretch that fit my waist, hip and height has been the cross I have had to carry till I bought these. 

I am wearing a 36w/36l. It’s a little roomy on  the waist but for the most part they fit well. 

When I see myself in these jeans, I totally see my mum back in the 80’s/ 90’s. Now I get why these are called Mom Jeans. 

I really love the stirrup hem on theses. It really take me back. Not to mention it adds character and authenticity to the jeans.

I do wonder how these jeans will keep up. I worry that the denim will soften after a few wears and become too baggy ( since there is no stretch). What are your experiences with mom jeans ? 

I guess only time will tell. For the moment am loving them and can’t wait to wear it with white trainers .

Outfit details- 

Grey cropped sweat top – Zara.

Mid wash blue mom jeans with Stirrup hem- Asos.

Red shoes – Marks and Spencer

Ss17 Trends -Must have Mules 

Guys Mules are still the business.  They are even more trendy today than ever so they are definitely a MUST have! 

I love the cross mules and you can find a pair just about everywhere.  Well… unless your tall and have big feet then you might need to be a little more strategic about where you get your mules from.

I have been shopping the Dorothy Perkins, Primark and New look mules range for 2 main reasons.

  • They are affordable
  • They offer wide fit and size 9 shoes.

I reviewed the cross mules from my recent purchase. I love the vibrant colours which all three retailers offer in this style. I must say the yellow mules from Primark wins hands down.

Newlook have a slightly wider range of colours. However, I was a little disappointed that they only had size 8 available in the style I wanted and unfortunately it was very pinchy on my little toes. These shoe must have just been made small because I was able to fit into Primark and Dorothy Perkins size 8.

 I was please to find that Newlook do have other styles of mules in wide fit and size 9’s.  This  clip on pompoms add some fun to my mules. You can buys yours here.

Although the Dorothy Perkins crossed Mules are a little bit more expensive, they are worth the extra £££’s. These go up to a size 9 and probably have the highest heel of them all.

The cheapest of them all was of course from Primark, it cost a jaw dropping £10. These have been my most worn pair of shoes in the last few weeks and it is holding up pretty well.

Have fun shopping for Mules this season.  The New look and Dorothy Perkins style can be found here  and here.

See you soon.
