From The Archive: 2016

The year of travel- from Aus to Africa- as well as some of my favourite ever photos, I hope 2016 brings a small dose of wanderlust (and fashion inspiration if not)!


The Perfect Black Jeans

Although in terms of song titles, you’d think this post would be more of a ‘Return Of The Mac(k)’ number (let’s face it, this pink mac is dreamy isn’t it?) But, in reality it’s actually more a ‘Jean Genie’ one- with the unsung heroes being these little black jeans. The silent sartorial glue that pulls all manner of outfits together, come rain, shine- day, or night. ‘What a poetic way to reference a pair of jeans!’ I hear you cry. It may be so, but these jeans from Boden have been my denim staple for the last year and a half- and it definitely takes a lot to earn that accolade here on W.O.D (which makes my blog sound pretty fancy, wouldn’t you agree)?

Now, there aren’t many pairs of jeans I’ll gladly wax lyrical about. Typically, with jeans I look for something to compliment my ‘smaller’ parts and play down my, ahem, slightly wider areas. I’ve got a small waist (with hips)- and sadly my leg length is somewhat dissimilar to that of Rosie Huntington Whitely- so my denim ideally has to be cropped enough that I don’t have to turn it up 3 times too- which is where these bad boys come in. So, paired with this classic roll neck, trench of dreams and some little dancing shoes (read: silver pumps), I was ready to hit the town (or, erm, Southeastern)…

Post in collaboration with Boden, but incase you didn’t believe my love of these jeans you can check out some of these posts from the last two years in which I’ve been parading around in them (one, two, three, four, five, six, seven), it’s love!
