Last week I indulged in something well out of my comfort zone… I went shopping for (and bought) a pair of jeans. No big deal right? Wrong I can’t really remember the last time I owned a pair, I’m a legging kind of girl (not the see-through-shouldn’t-be-trousers style), I like big baggy jumpers, and blouses which skim my knees, in the summer it’s tunics and long vest style ‘dresses’. However since losing weight (nearly 60 pounds now) my leggings haven’t been fitting too well, they gape at the back and my knees are kinda droopy, I’m short so they usually reach past my boobs anyway, but recently I’ve been keeping them up by tucking them in my bra… sexy right?
I didn’t want to spend lots as well hopefully they won’t be lasting too long, so I went to Dorothy Perkins, they were having a 20% off everything day, and I wanted a new coat (still not found the one). I bought the ‘Petite Darcy Authentic Skinny‘ (who knew jeans had such long names) – usually £24.00 but £19.20 with the discount. They say ‘super skinny’ but they’re nice and stretchy, I can sit down without having my circulation cut off, and the colour goes well with everything really.
Maybe not a big deal to many people but it’s so nice to wearing jeans again and more importantly feeling comfortable in them. I rang my Dad to share my ‘big news’ and he basically screamed down the phone so yeah it’s a big deal to me. The next step is finding ‘jean tops’ aka not over-sized blouses/shirts so I can show off my new demin coated legs.. aha.
