Now jeans and I don’t always get along. I have short legs and a long torso so I always feel like jeans are riding too low or they cut into my lower hips or something along that line. Or worse, I have to pull them up so far that they, errr, ride up in the crotch. Eeeeek. Never, ever a good look. So off I go. Whine and complain. complain, complain, complain. And don’t even get me started on how badly fitting some jeans can be! They call it Mum butt. But come on, no mum deserves THAT.

Mostly I wear jeans with heels. Dress them up a little and help even out the long torso thing. Which means for me, jeans aren’t really the fall back comfy item of clothing that they are for most people. Strange how that happens? The other day I wore my red jeans with some flats and it worked. I’ll share some pics with you guys probably next week. Maybe I’m turning over a new leaf.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has issues with jeans? I’m not, right? I know it can take a lot of trying on and testing out to get jeans to fit beautifully. These Autograph Secret Jeans are a favourite of mine. The pockets are sewn in a flat panel across the front of the jeans giving a flatter line and no added bulk from scrunched up pockets. I’m wearing the 22. And in true me form, to get a nice fit on the but, the button digs into my belly a little. Why do I do that to myself?

  • Looking good suger! Love the green on you 🙂

  • I LOVE this outfit on you. It is really flattering and makes you look so tall and slender! Love love love it! 🙂

    • Thanks Danielle. Nothing like heels under too long jeans to make you look taller, and slenderer. Tip of the day. Haha.

  • inspiredkate

    Great outfit! I have those same jeans – they look better on you!

  • Renae Foottit

    Ooooh la la! This outfit really works for you and I love your hair like that! Very soft and pretty.
    And yes, I know the feeling of not finding jeans that fit very well. I found my first pair of well-fitting jeans from City Chic 6 years ago (I was 26!) but these days they usually only sell stretchy denim which is NOT MY FRIEND!!
    Anyway, you look great!

    • Thanks so much Renae. I need to remember to leave some of my fringe out sometimes. I get so used to scraping it back off my face.

      I have one pair of City Chic jeans. ONE. I have never really found any other pairs that work for me. It’s a bit frustrating actually. I usually buy multiples if I find a pair that really, really fit.

  • Jen

    I really like that outfit on you. You look great!

  • Kirsty

    Love, love, love that lime green top! That colour really suits you 🙂

    • Thank you. It’s a bit fabulous! I’m looking around for more colours like this to add some colour for spring. So exciting.

  • I Love this outfit, you look fab. The secret jeans are the only ones that fit me well, I love them.

    • Thanks D. It took me ages to try them on, I’m so cynical about jeans, but when I did, I loved them. The firm hold is my favourite thing. Hold without squish, that is. Haha.

    I really hate that button digging in the belly feel. I’ll forego a good butt fit in favour of a comfortable waist. Every time. I’m going pants shopping tomorrow. Wish me luck….

    • Oh yes, it’s the worst! Good luck pants shopping. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. 🙂

    It has taken me ages to get some jeans that I like and would you believe they were $9 from Big W. Total score. I think the jeans look great on you.

    • Seriously, you’e got to LOVE that. $9 jeans that turn out to be perfect. WINNING. That’s all I have to say. 😉

  • Heals and sparkles, I gotta get my bling on! I have problems with jeans too, I’m just too short!!! Only the long legged can ever find good jeans that fit right off the rack in AU, bring on the sizing options in the US!

    • Oh yes. Heels and sparkles with demin is a great combo. I have ridiculously short legs for my height. It’s crazy, so I hear you lady. Loud and clear.
