Denim Diaries


Hey lovelies, hope you’re all well!

How amazing has the weather been recently? I just can’t get enough of this gorgeous sun! So with summer in full swing, I’ve teamed up with the lovely folk at Dorothy Perkins to show you a way to work denim in to your summer wardrobe!

I’m a huge fan of denim and don’t think anything beats finding a pair of jeans that fit you like a glove. The problem is that in hot weather like this, jeans can often be uncomfortable to wear due to the heavy duty material. The solution? Jeggings! Super skinny denim leggings made with an ultra-soft fabric that is lighter and cooler to wear, perfect for summer! The MAJOR difference with the Dorothy Perkins Eden Jeggings is that not only are they super comfortable but incredibly flattering. The fabric they use is stretchy but also has good hold to it, pinching you in at all the right places, giving you the illusion of toned legs, thighs and bum! The pocket and hem detailing also make it pretty hard to tell them apart from a pair of jeans.


I opted for a bleach washed pair for this look and teamed them up with a bardot top from Topshop. I folded my jeggings up to turn them into ankle grazers (Alternatively you can buy DP’s Eden Capri’s here) and slipped on a gorgeous pair of Steve Madden heeled sandals. To accessorize, I added on a simple gold bracelet from Urban Outfitters, grabbed a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers and a camel coloured fedora from Rag & Bone. Finally, I grabbed my Celine luggage bag and I was good to go!

This outfit was perfect for lunch and a stroll around town over the weekend and in spite of the hot weather, I kept cool thanks to my divine DP Jeggings! These are definitely a new favorite in my denim section and I think I need to get my hands on them in a few more colours!

So, what do you guys think? How will you be incorporating denim into your summer wardrobe?

To get the lowdown on how a few of DP’s favorite bloggers (including yours truly <3) and top industry experts incorporate denim in their every day lives, join us live on Thursday 7th of August at 3:00pm GMT and get involved in the conversation! Watch the Google Hangout HERE.

I really hope some of you will be watching the Google Hangout in a few days, I’m so nervous and excited at the same time – it’s going to be LIVE!!! Hahaha.

As always, thanks for reading my sweets.. until the next post!
