As a skinny jeans ADDICT I’ve been surprisingly loving wide leg jeans this season and this pair with coloured side stripe are quickly becoming favourites. I mean how could you not fall for that AMAZING side spilt running all the way up your legs??




 The transition

I’ll be honest, when the whole ‘SKINNY JEANS ARE OUT’ news broke I thought what the hell am I going to wear?! I throw them on for the school run, for a quick coffee and croissant dash on a Saturday morning and for general sitting duties in front of the laptop / iPad / phone / tv. Yes all at once, isn’t that how we live now…

While it’s been hard giving up skinny jeans, the sunny Swiss temps have made it a lot easier to whip on the ole wide leg trousers and less clothes in general. So for other ‘skinny’ survivors please know it does get better. We have each other and we will get through this.




Out of interest, what are the best shoes to wear with wide leg jeans?

I paired my flares with a slogan tee, another key piece for your summer wardrobe AND these gold heeled mules. You know I have a thing for metallic shoes (here and here) but I realised I don’t have anything gold so these fill a gap in my shoe section nicely.

Plus walking with that epic side split is the perfect opportunity to show off my shoes so I might as well get my money’s worth…
