Last One On The Mom Jeans Train


Topshop Pastel Pink Mom Jeans

Ah Monday. You didn't let me get off to a good start today did ya you lil monkey you. Here's a quick overview of what happened:

1) I forgot my lunch meaning James had to drive back home after dropping me off at the station to get it. He returned with literally seconds to spare the good egg <3

2) My cat used my jacket as a litter tray. I am currently not speaking to her. I don't think she's noticed. . . . .

3) My train was cancelled and I was 40 minutes late to work on my second week of my new job, go Jess.

I'm seriously hoping hats not an omen of things to come this week cos apart from that I've had a pretty good Monday. Now that aside and out of the way, shall we move onto the clothes?

I *think* I am officially the last one on the mom jeans train. When the trend came about 2/3 years ago [a stab in the dark] I really really really hated them and thought they were unflattering and dead ugly, not the good ugly I like. Oh how wrong was I. This particular pair bagged in them most recent Topshop sale [that I may or may not have bought 90% of over the past few months] intrigued me as they are the loveliest shade of pastel pink that thought would go nicely with my kawaii closet of dreams I'm currently in the long process of trying to build. On, they hide my hips I love to hate, [nah I just hate them] and make me not feel all self-conscious when paired with one of my many crop tops or with a t-shirt tucked in.

I would say I'd be wearing them all summer as they are the perfect shade but let's face it, summer was over about a month ago but I might break all the fashion rules and wear them in winter I can't see why not right?

All in all, Mom jeans I love you and I'm so sorry I doubted you.

P.S Fun fact for you all, in these pictures, I hadn't brushed my hair for about 3 days ;)

The Best Thing To Happen To My Wardrobe

H&M Culottes

First things first, apologies for the very very I-tried-to-save-them-I-promise-over-exposed shots. They looked great as a thumbnail, uploaded I'm just a ghostly mess that we're all gonna have to put up with, where's an Instagram filter when you need one? and the knowledge of photoshop, that would be great too. It's on my ever-expanding to-do list.

I am well and truly riding the culottes train still after totally falling head over vans in love with my River Island rust coloured pair I mentioned in a previous post. I again was on the look out for the perfect dungarees, still looking for black in colour, still not skinny. I still haven't found them sigh. Clicking on the next tab on H&M's site these little beauties popped up, intrigued and excited as they combine both trends I'm totally lusting over, I hurriedly added them to my basket, along with a black standard pair of culottes and perhaps a black dress with the cutest cut outs. . . . a-hem. 

I am in love. Like so in love I have worn them to death since they arrived at my doorstep last weekend. I feel like I have embodied my new spirit animal scout [currently reading ''Go Set a Watchman''] and I never ever want to take them off. I have even worn them to work [my new jobs cool and I get to wear what I want] and basically yeah I want to live in them. They are made of that school trouser material which is a bit weird but it works. My obvious first styling choice was with a simple t-shirt and my re-discovered velevt vans I picked up from Japan last year. Yes yes I know I look like I'm wearing slippers but I think thats what makes me love them all the more. But Im looking forward to styling this lil' beauty up in different ways.

I got a new job


It's taken me 26 years to fathom out exactly what I want to do exactly what I can be and exactly what I like to do.

I've had a job since I was 13, like most kids I had a paper round I then progressed onto waitressing at various pubs with a brief stint in a shop that sold over-priced Italian handbags at an outlet village, so brief I can't even remember the name, Cocehnalla something I don't know nor do I care. I then spent 7 years of my adult life working at Morrisons, in between college and my year out traveling. I honestly thought I was going to end up retiring from that place [no disrespect to anyone that works there] but I really really wanted more than just an admin job at my local supermarket. I knew I was meant to be doing something else and it drove me insane as I had no fucking clue what it was. I was sick of never having weekends off, missing family occasions friends birthday nights out/meals despite trying to book them off way in advance. working 12/13 days in a row from 8pm finishes and then having to come back in at 5am the next morning took its toll. The whole environment/everything about that place took its toll.

I then escaped to the company I have just left. I have never feared for my job so much. Not because I was uncapable, because my face sometimes didn't fit, they fancied a cull or I don't know perhaps they were board that day. Whatever the reason staff turn over was high and job security was something I never felt I had there. I slogged out for 2 and a half years there, starting in sales, moving on to learner services and then I bagged my dream job of a marketing assistant for it to be snatched away from me 3 months later. With that being the final straw I set out to find a new job, in the role I knew I wanted and I knew I was bloody good at. After a few interviews and 4 weeks to the day I was told my marketing role was no more, I was offered a marketing executive role at a fashion company. The only good thing to come out of that place was meeting James, that is the only thing I am greatful for. 

Yesterday was my first day. I have to get up at 5.30am to catch 2 trains to my new place, ready to start work at 8.30am. Do a full day and commute back like the rest of my fellow work commuters. I really really don't mind. I for the first time ever have a salary that reflects my role. I get to travel around the country for meetings even venturing as far as France. I'm in charge of TV adverts and OTP. First impressions the office environment seems friendly and helpful. I'm going to be busy. It's going to be full on and I can't wait. 

I'm excited to see what this role brings.

Only One

UNIF Shorts Grace Neutral Motel Crop
I was in Paris roughly 9 hours ago surrounded by the most beautiful buildings and eating all the crepes which of course means all the weight gain. I don't even wanna step on a scale. . . .  and now I'm in bed with a very happy Cassie purring her little head off  [I think she's missed me] trying to stave off the holiday blues and also simultaneously battle of the nerves for my first day of work on Monday. Yikes. 

Before we begin 






After looking through these pictures it's time to admit I rly rly, like rly need a hair cut. Not because my hair has become stupidly long and unmanageable [I wish] more so that it's so ratty and I'm pretty sure one side is now longer than the other from snapping and well that's not good now is it? Last time I had my hair chopped was well over a year ago cos well, hairdressers seem to get a little too snip happy and I'm not feeling that. 

Tangent x2 over I'd like to rewind to last weekend when I popped James' Whitby cherry, cheeky. As the day promised lots of walking, exploring AND most importantly sunshine, I wanted to go with something comfy and that kept me cool as I clung onto the last of the summer, Autumn I really love you but I'm not so ready to say hello just yet. I absolutely adore this Grace Neutral x Motel Crop. I managed to get it for under a fiver in the Ark closing down sale, in fact, I got to bag most of the collection for under £20, everyone loves a good mandala and it pandas to my hippy side which is coming out more and more recently. Hareem pants anyone? My Hayley shorts from UNIF came out to play again, they are literally the most flattering things and hide my huge hips that I hate just don't seem to want to slim down no matter how much I run sigh. They still remain to this day the most expensive item of clothing I've ever bought because of 10 shipping and 2) customers Worth it right?
Oh and p.s creeps and socks will forever be bae <3

Bare it all // T-ARC Clothing Collab

T-ARC Clothing

Question: Does anyone else have a retirement draw for clothes? Like somewhere they have put clothes they no longer want/like/fit into anymore with the full intention of selling them on eBay? I do and its bulging, it's so ridic but not as ridic as my hatred for listing things on eBay so it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. . . . The other day I decided to tackle said draw and make it appear a little neater so I could close the damn thing when I pulled out these tartan beauties. As we all know I go all heart eyes for tartan and wondered why on earth I had retired this to the draw. Pulling them up against me it all came screaming back, these little bebes were a little on the tight side making them uber uncomfortable to wear, so in the draw them went. I tried them on again for the first time in like 6 months and holy guacamole-y they fit.

~Now bare with me I will get to the point of this whole post~

Chris from T-ARC clothing based in Manchester got in touch a few weeks ago for a lil' cheeky collab. Which duh, of course, I defiantly wanted to be a apart of after checking out the site. I have huge respect for smaller independent clothing lines slogging it out creating and making their designs and dreams become a reality. Kudos Chris on the super sick designs and high-quality shirts. I wanted to make sure I could show just how versatile these shirts are and if you rly rly wanna, you can style them up with anythang. [Double kudos] That's where my newly discovered tartan pants can into play, I told you I was going somewhere with this, voila outfit complete, it becomes a little more than just a t-shirt jeans combo that I was trying to desperately steer away from.
