I picked up these jeans from Liv’s closet sale a while back. I’d eyed them off on the Torrid site, missed out on ordering my size and just settled into the idea that I was going to live a lifetime without them when hey presto there they were. I snapped them up quickly. Took a hundred years to pay her for them and come the weekend of the ProBlogger conference they were MINE!

Then I left them in my suitcase and forgot about them. Whoops.

Then I found them, washed them and hung them in my closet. Win.

Then it got really hot and I couldn’t wear them anyway. Darn it.

THEN it started storming every second night around here and all of a sudden it was crisp again. It was go time!

So I pulled them out over the weekend and gave them a whirl. They’re a little firm but they gave nicely to a great fit after a little while. I love how the Torrid denim moulds around you. Some of the jeans I have from there give a little too much and I end up with saggy knees, these babies didn’t. Online reviews say that is the proper denim jeans, much better than the jegging types {with the knee issues}.

I had planned to wear them with just the simple white tee, the heels and my necklace and in a last-minute touch of genius {if I do say so myself. Ha. Awkward} I threw on this gorgeous pale green boyfriend blouse and left it unbuttoned. I’m really, really pleased with how it all came together. It also gave me a bit of coverage until the jeans gave a little for that whole belly overhanging the waistband thing.

If this post had an alternate title it would pastel perfection or something. I’m loving these colours together. Loving the softness of the shades all bundled together. Even if Hubby DID say that it looked like I had rolled around on the road for a while and rubbed the print off the jeans… Pffft. That guys. He doesn’t get it. Lucky he’s cute. And is willing to take photos even when an old dude in a really expensive camper was watching us the entire time out of the corner of his eye. Creeper. Ah well, you get that on the big jobs. Haha.

    Yay you’ve finally got floral jeans, it’s been like forever you’ve been on the hunt. It’s fab that they’ve come from Liv and you’ve not had to buy new. The jeans are lovely they’ve got the right touch of faded and aged look to them with the floral that gives them that vintage feel I like……you know? The tee and boyfriend top are a perfect combo for the jeans. Totally cool outfit, love it.

    On a side note I must say that many of your recent stylings are appealing to my vintage retro loving heart, you’re getting a little vintage flavour, flavour in your wardrobe I feel. Anyways I’m down with it, it’s cool and I’m loving it and your fabulous self as always.

    Keep smiling and big love.

    • Your retro loving heart! I LOVE your retro loving heart. It’s the best.

      It was SO cool to find them via Liv just when I’d given up all hope of finding them. Someone on Facebook mentioned they had a shorts version too. How cool would THEY be.

  • LOVE this! Guh, the print on those jeans are just gorgeous, I am super envious of how damn fine you look in pants!

    • HA. Love your guts Nat. This print is all kinds of wonderful. I had them out the other day wearing them with some hot pink. I was surprised, it totally worked.

  • This is sooooo you. I love this on you.

    • Thank you Alexandra. It is, right? Sort of casual, but not. Sort of put together, but not… All that is very me. 😉

    This may just be my favourite outfit of all time. OF ALL TIME. It has everything! Comfort, functionality, femininity, all kinds of pastel and print trends going on, it’s dressed up and dressed down at the same time. It’s just perfection really!
