The Boyfriend Jeans

Firstly, I would like to say a big hello to all my new lovely followers! Thanks for following me guys, it really means a lot to know someone actually reads and is interested in the things I post and have to say. :):)

Anyway, moving swiftly on with the post... The Boyfriend Jeans. Having had a massive comeback at spring/summer this year it looks as if they're here to stay so I thought I'd grab myself a pair, like this awesome pair I got over at Asos! 
To be honest I have always had a love/hate relationship with boyfriend jeans.. it all dates back to the time of my pre-teens when I really couldn't dress myself so mum bought me (ugly) pairs of the so-called things and it was all I ever wore without dispute. And now, looking back, they didn't do me any favours at all (when you take into consideration the fact that I weighed what I weigh now only I was like nine). What I'm trying to say is I don't consider them to be the most figure-flattering of pieces thus I have religiously stuck to the classic skinny jeans for the past six years. However, with their updated comeback this season, I have not been able to take these bad boys off ever since I bought them. Styled correctly, they look cool and effortless and I can safely say that my love for the boyfriend jeans has been rekindled... well for now at least.

 Hand of the day (styled with this outfit):
Clockwise from left: thrifted, thrifted, River Island (midi rings), Topshop, New Look
bracelet: New Look, Watch: Swiss Legend from eBay (do I ever take it off?!)
(Excuse the weirdo nails, my friend and I got extremely bored that day)

Here are a few recent random snaps of me with the jeans styled differently (weren't initially intended for the blog but thought I'd add them in anyway):

Super casual:

Jeans, belt, necklace: as before
Starbucks top: Exhibit
Parka: New Look
Hi tops: River Island
(I was at a thing called 'Party Random' here, hence the rubber glove and painted face my friend has going on.. I on the other hand didn't know you were supposed to dress randomly so here I am looking pretty regular)

 Night Out:

Jeans: as before
Crop top: Topshop
Necklace: Miss Selfridge
Bag and sandals: Zara

Oh, just a little note on the jean's size if you decide to get them (which you totally should): I range in anything from a 8 to a 10 in jeans depending on their style so if I'm buying for skinny jeans I'd go for an 8 for a tighter fit. I wasn't sure exactly which size would fit right for these though so I ordered both an 8 and a 10 and the 8 was quite tight fit so I stuck with the 10  (don't you just loooove Asos' free returns?!) as I wanted a looser fit and so that I could wear them high waisted with a belt. So, if you're anything like me I would recommend getting both sizes and seeing which fit you prefer as some like to wear this type of jeans tight, whereas I prefer the 'boyfriend' fit!
