If I’m being completely honest, if it wasn’t for the fact I have a penchant for dressing up in nice things, I am so inherently lazy I would basically be a cartoon character, wearing the same thing every day. Obviously, sometimes I do enjoy putting the effort into my outfits and if I didn’t why on earth am I writing a style blog…?
But… like I say, I’m also really lazy about what I wear sometimes. And if I’m not going somewhere fun I’m probably wearing jeans or leggings with whatever top happens to be clean at the time. The wanting to look nice vs wanting to put in minimal effort are at constant war with each other and the minimal effort part often wins. However, even when I’m lazy I don’t want to look bad or not like me, so this is basically exactly what I might do (although with slightly more effort cos, you know, it’s going on the blog and everything)… I’m even in my back yard and everything, as I genuinely went nowhere this day.
Meet my new favourite pair of jeans. I got a bit too fed up with the dye transference and also the fact I was really wearing a size too small in these ASOS ones from last year, so have been seeking to replace them ever since. And guess what, they’re from Collectif. You’re all really surprised aren’t you? It’s not like I wrote an entire post about buying most of their stock from the last five years, or anything (or that I have another one about them coming). The good thing about this Rebel Kate style, which I can’t say about some of their other pairs, is the waist is high but not too high – it’s perfect for the petite lady, or if you want something less subtle for comfortable everyday wear. The only unfortunate thing is they seem to have flown out of stock again, but do seem to be available through many third party sellers / eBay.
