His and Hers: Day to Day in Denim

 First off, I hope you guys don't mind how many pictures are here - I just loved so many of them! 
A few weeks ago the lovely ladies at Urban Outfitters got in touch asking me to put a little post together about the amazing selection they have of jeans, both menswear and ladies! I have bought jeans from Urban Outfitters many times in the past, as they have so many options and not just from one brand. The pair I went for were some superrrr skinny jeans from BDG, and believe me when I say they are the softest, comfiest jeans ever. I am wearing them as I write this now, sat crossed legged on the sofa... and there is none of the back of the knees pinching that denim can sometimes do! 
Harry also loves his skinny jeans, and has been on the hunt for a black pair for a while now. These look so fantastic, as they're just the right amount of skinny. He has teamed his with an oversized tee from Obey and some white sneakers. 
I added this sweatshirt from Sparkle and Fade, which I have been wearing non stop since I got it (the poof is in my Instagram feed!). It's just the best jumper ever. I also slipped into my Vans, and created a look I really love.

Change of Plans

Last weekend Mum, Harry and I headed down to Surrey for the weekend. Whilst there we stopped in for lunch at my favourite hotel: Great Fosters. Although I have never stayed there (one day!!) we always go for a coffee and some cakes. Its so beautiful there, and the perfect spot for some blogging! There was a wedding on the day, and their photos obviously look precedence, so the locations I wanted were taken - honestly I don't know why they insisted on getting married then, did they not know I was coming?!? Haha!

Sleeveless Coat

 If I do say so myself, this is a pretty perfect transitional outfit. This weather has been so hard to dress for recently, and I must admit I feel responsible for it all, as my outfit choices seem to dictate the temperature that day. If I wear a jacket, it will be warm. If I don't, it will rain. I tell you, I am feeling very powerful indeed, some sort of backwards weather God. I am sure so many of you also have similar control of the weather too!

Three Ways to Style: Warehouse Top

The final item I bought was this Warehouse top, and here are the three ways I styled it. Apologies for them all being all black looks, I really do just love all black too much! This top is coming with me on holiday too this weekend, i've been finding it so versatile and can't wait to style it with more summer appropriate items! 

Look 1: This is what I am wearing everyday at the moment, a perfect mix between laid back and sophisticated. 

Look 2: This top is perfect with wide trousers as it is just the perfectly fitted. Not too tight, but yet not baggy, which could have left me looking drowned in my clothes.

Look 3: For this look the fitted style of the top was the starting point. I wanted to pair it with something loose fitting again, but not necessarily a wide leg. Hence these trousers came out my wardrobe!! Ticking all the boxes, and in leather, which is always an extra bonus! 

I have kept the writing short and sweet on this post, as I also have this video to share, where I talk about the outfits in more detail. Let me know your thoughts:

Three Ways to Style: Miss Selfridge Jeans

Today we have the jeans I bought from Miss Selfridge, which I really must admit I have been very impressed with. They fit me so well, and so far I am not having any baggy knees that can sometimes occur with stretchier denim. So here is three ways I styled the jeans, styling denim isn't hard as it's something most of us do every day, but I hope I can show you that jeans aren't necessarily just an everyday casual item. 

 Look 1: This is something I would wear out for dinner, a smasual look (smart casual). Dark denim jeans are super easy to dress up and make look chic and sophisticated, all you need is killer heels and a smart jacket! 

 Look 2: Jeans and tee - what could be more of a wardrobe staple? I gave this look a little extra something by adding statement glasses and shoes.

 Look 3: Jeans are a great base to any outfit, especially ones where you want to make another item the statement. For example, this dress is the focal point of this outfit, and jeans compliment it perfectly. 

Look 1: Jeans: Miss Selfridge c/o OUTFIT | Top: All Saints | Coat: & Other Stories | Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Look 2: Jeans: Miss Selfridge c/o OUTFIT | Top: COS | Shoes: Acne | Sunglasses: Dior 
Look 3: Jeans Miss Selfridge c/o OUTFIT | Dress: COS | Shoes: Balenciaga
