Jean Genie

My first pair of jeans were from Tammy and had star patches dotted sporadically up the legs; you obviously couldn't get much cooler than me. I had quite the collection, yet when I started sixth form I just... stopped. Perhaps because it was a boys' school (girls were allowed to join in year twelve, I promise I haven't been holding back vital information!), but I went from Converse and skinnies, to heels and skirts, without looking back.
Then, of course, I see my girl crushes wearing them, and everything changes - I'm blaming Alexa.
One of the more affordable stockists of bright coloured women's jeans is Bank. I tend to go there for going out clothes (I have a pleather dress that makes me feel like Daisy Lowe), but their daywear is pretty versatile too. They stock loads of brands (my favourites are Reverse, Lipsy and Dr. Martens) and sell menswear too - perfect for knitwear! Luckily they have stores in both Liverpool and Essex (i.e. Lakeside, home to Joey Essex), as well as other locations around the country.

Here are some outfits I created using my main gal pals for inspiration:

  1. Oh, what wonderfully compiled outfits! Every time I wear jeans (I do on occasion, if I'm in a rush) I get comments about my ghetto booty, so I tend to wear them as little as possible :/ However, the faded pastel pair is really quite gorgeous! Will we see you wearing some soon? ;) x

  2. I love all of these! That embroidered jacket on the last set is to die for!

    but first, coffee

  3. Cute outfits. I esp love the sandals in the first photo.

  4. I love Cara's outfit! The biker shoes are way hot! You can combine them perfectly with almost every outfit! Love it!

  5. Desperate for some biker bookts but coming in to spring I feel it's a waste of money!

  6. These are great, I think my favourite has to be the third one, which is yours?

  7. Ah, Tammy...brings back memories! Great posts and love your inspiration boards xo

  8. It is almost unfair how casually amazing Alexa makes everything look. Come on, share some of that awesome with the class!
