My new favourite jeans & Neverending style link-up

Last week, I ordered a pair of loose-fitting blue jeans from H&M. I was a bit concerned that they might need turning up (welcome to the life of a 5ft 3inch—and a half!—woman) because they looked fairly long on the model who is a good three inches taller than me. But when they arrived, I was absolutely delighted. They’re the perfect length to wear with both sneakers and heels. They are now my new favourite jeans. I call them loose-fitting but in the store, they’re calling them bootcut low jeans.

I also ordered this adorable white broderie anglaise blouse because I envisioned them looking perfect together. Of course I was right lol. Isn’t it cute? I’m not normally a frilly kinda gal, but there was something about this blouse that spoke to me, and I’m so glad it did because I love it too!

Here, I chose to wear my trusty ‘clogs’ (for want of a better word) that I’ve had several years now, and I never tire of them. They’re perhaps my most comfortable summer wedges and, considering they’ve been worn to death, they still look relatively new! I’d love to find another pair in a similar style. Not really sure what I was doing with my face on that photo lol.

The handbag has featured on the blog numerous times before but it’s a good ‘un, right? It was a gift from my MIL the Christmas before last. It’s one of those bags that turns heads. Most women adore it! As do I. And it actually goes with quite a lot of things. Like my new favourite jeans lol. That was a silly comment because these jeans are going to go with absolutely everything. Seriously, there’s not much you can’t wear with a good pair of jeans, is there?

I’m linking to the jeans and the blouse below, as well as the strapless balconette bra that I also ordered—it fits beautifully, by the way. No gaping as is often the case with strapless bras—because they’re all still available in-store/online. And nothing was expensive which is pretty normal for H&M. I’ve just checked the UK store, and the broderie anglaise blouse is ‘coming soon’. Weird that we got it first!

Now it’s time for the Neverending Style Link-Up. What have you been up to this week? I hope you’ll link up all your posts (blogs, instagram and YouTube are all welcome). Have a fabulous weekend!

    Those jeans are so cute on you! I’m a little shorter than you and I agree, finding the right jeans length can be a struggle! I usually go for cropped or 3/4 style jeans, they tend to be the perfect length for me. I don’t have any more bootcut jeans in my wardrobe but the ones I did have I had to have hemmed – it’s great you haven’t had to do that with these ones!

    Thanks for the link up! Hope that you are having a great week ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oooh Suzy, these jeans look so fabulous on you! And that eyelet top is adorable! Your clogs sandals are perfect with this look as is your amazing bag which I love every time you show it. And I had no idea that you were 5โ€™3.5โ€! I thought you were closer to my height of 5โ€™6.75โ€. Happy weekend, my friend!

    i should do this type of outfit more often: I have a cute white peasant blouse that I like pairing with jeans but I don’t think i have this year yet. I love both of these 2 new pieces and absolutely am drooling over your clogs.

    Oh I might take a look at those jeans! I prefer full length jeans but at 5’4 that means they usually have to be taken up. Have a great weekend!

    Nice jeans, but wow – that blouse! I love it! Great outfit all together.

    Oh, Suzy, these are the jeans of my dreams…though I actually had jeans like these back in the 70s!!! And, I do believe I probably had platforms (that’s what we called them then) just like yours! You could have fooled me…I would have never known you were 5ft 3.5in! You’re a good 2.5 inches taller than me (that’s on a good day, too)! I would have put you at much taller! Well, you know what they say…good things come in small packages! I adore that top, too! You are stunning in white, my friend! Thanks for the linky!

    You look great in this jeans. I’m in love with the sandals and the blouse is just lovely.

    Great looking jeans! They fit well and look comfortable. And Iโ€™m a sucker for eyelet, although I have only one eyelet blouse myself. Your MIL has great taste in bags! Fantastic outfit!
