What I wore Today: Printed Jeans


A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned how very much in love I was with my Topshop Baroque print jeans. I had originally missed out on them in store, as they never had them in in my size, but I was lucky enough to pick up these babies off Ebay and was pleased to bits. I wear Petite jeans, so it can be a bit of a pickle trying to find ones to fit me, and most shops only usually bother doing the plain, basic jeans in shorter lengths, so these really were an exciting find for me.
I actually took this photograph for the lovely Lisa over at Topaz and May, to appear in her 'Any Size' post, which you can find here (I'm looking a bit squinty because of the sun in my eyes, but go and check out Lisa's post to see how lovely everyone looks in their prints). I wore this outfit on Friday for a bit of a chilled day with the hubby (I don't work on Fridays!), so I wasn't going anywhere special, but I was pretty happy with it, as it can be a bit of a mission to find things which look good with printed jeans, and until then I had been teaming them with a white lace top and a bleached denim jacket, which I also really like, but I wanted a new way to wear them.

Do you have any printed or bright-coloured jeans?
How do you wear them?

  1. I can sympathize with the finding good clothes that fit problem hun - only I have that problem with 'tall' sections instead. Love how you've paired the top with these jeans. The print is gorgeous! very jealous! You look fab!

    1. Aw, thanks lovely :)
      It's a pain being of unusual height, isn't it. All dresses are too long for me, and I guess you probably have the opposite problem with those too!xx

    1. Thanks lovely, they make a nice change to having the tops do the talking, although I find my bright coral ones a bit more difficult to wear - and less forgiving! Ha xx

  9. Oh wow, I love everything in this outfit! I'm lusting after that jumper already! Totally feel your pain with finding right size jeans, I have to settle for Primark's super skinny jeans to get a good fit and even then they drag on the floor!
