Tortoiseshell and Indigo


Coat: £63, Topshop. Blouse: £12; Primark. Jamie Jeans: £18, Topshop. Bag: £8, vintage from Manchester. Ballet flats: c/o Le Bunny Bleu.

Some things never change: the wind in Liverpool (my excuse for the Myspace style hand-in-hair pose, I swear). But some things do: I'm wearing jeans! I shan't lie, I'm still not convinced, but when I run out of clean tights these suffice well enough. Anyone else have a real jeans phobia?

Another 'new' thing is that I'm wearing completely flat shoes. This never happens, even my Russell and Bromley "flats" have an extra inch. This lovely pair were sent to me by Le Bunny Bleu, so now I have to stop being short and in denial. They're actually a sort of wine tortoiseshell colour, but the annoying February light doesn't really show that so I've added a close up, starring Ikea bedsheet. There's a store in the strattaz Stratford Westfield opposite Dr Martens that you should check out if you're there.

I'm off to make myself another lemsip as I thought it would be a really good idea to walk home in February at 4am in a sheer shirt. Sure. My duvet (and Sidney's "Astrophil and Stella") are calling!

  1. I love your coat, so simple yet chic - much more appropriate than a sheer shirt (!) I stumbled across your blog this week and I love it!

  4. I never ever ever wear jeans and when I ever ever do (like once in a year?) they're always black skinnies! LOVE these on you though they suit you :) along with that divine coat and that myspace pose ;) love it :)

  7. I had a jeans phobia not too long ago but once the weather got seeeriously cold I thought to myself I need to dress for comfort too. Now I'm always in jeans, I bought some in burgundy to livin' them up a tad and they're my favourite. I have black too which I love just as much. Your look wonderful also, your coat is very sweet!

  11. Your coat and your top (from what is seen) are so pretty! I've said it once and I'll say it again, even if it's windy, your hair is just too darn awesome.

  13. For so long I also had an irrational hatred against jeans, but now they're in regular circulation of my outfits. This outfit looks so good! But you're right, it's too cold to be taking photos outside, so go and get into bed or something! xxxx

  14. I literally never wear jeans either, though my aunty got me some from Topshop for Christmas and black skinny pair and a burgundy pair and I wear them a bit, but only because they're extremely comfortable... Tights beat jeans any day!

  15. They are some very excellent shoes, I need to get me some flats that aren't crappy. I am quite afraid of wearing jeans! They certainly accentuate one's hips and I'm not sure that I want them accentuated! ALSO that is one excellent sailor coat!

  16. The shoes are lovely and you look great but mostly I can only think about how cold your feet must be! Ouch! Enjoy Sidney.

  18. Your coat and shoes are so adorable! I have a serious jeans phobia. I'm glad you can actually go out in public in them. I can't even get a top on without feeling terrible about wearing jeans. You look adorable in jeans though!

  29. Ah, you look great in jeans! I never wear jeans either, although i only have a couple of pairs (both from primark, both a bit too long for me and going saggy in all the wrong places) I keep finding pretty blouses i like though and feeling that jeans might be the only things to wear with them! x

  51. Ohh, I love your outfit! I'm still hopelessly in love with that Topshop coat, but I guess I wouldn't be able to buy it still somewhere. Your blouse and shoes are so cute too! I need to buy those kind of flats sometime too, always convenient.

    Hope you get better soon!! :)

    I understand your jeans phobia, it's pretty the same for me. Dresses and skirts are so comfortable to wear ! And I feel better wearing dress.
