BEETLEJUICE, BEETLEJUICE, BEETLEJUICE!

When I was reviewing the Missguided Nail Vanish earlier in the week, I mentioned that I also had bought some new jeans - well actually from my lovely mam (who's birthday it is today by the way) for my birthday on the 6th of July, but she was lovely enough to let me have them early. She is pretty much the best!

So when Mr Well Done and I decided to have a bit of a date night on Monday to stuff ourselves on the wonders Wagamama has to offer, I just had to wear them. Yes they may be a little Beetlejuice-esque, but as I love that movie I'm half tempted to look for a matching jacket (denim of course so I can create a bit of an update on the hill-billy tuxedo).

I have noticed that the simple mint cotton shirt from H&M is set to be one of the hardest working members of my wardrobe - so versatile and just that little bit looser to hide the chicken curry baby that I was forced to waddle home with. Also, check it out, I practiced with a bit of nail art, sticking some jewels onto tacky nail varnish then covering with topcoat. Although it turned out a success, some did end up stuck to my face chest  - who doesn't like a bit of bling anyway.

Striped Skinny Jeans, Missguided - Same here in the sale woo!
Cotton Shirt, H&M - Similar here.
Shoes, New Look - Similar here.
Snake Clutch, H&M - Similar here.
Belt, H&M - Similar here.

Necklace, Primark - Similar here.
Nail Varnish, Missguided - Same here.







I have been feeling really self-conscious and own on myself recently because of the mental health issues that have been with me since childhood (maybe I will tell you about them sometime), but when I put on these pants I felt better, confidence restored. I don't mean to toot my own horn, but these jeans make my tushi look fabulous - I implore anyone and everyone out there to get a pair of these skinny jean wonders - they are my new feel good pants!

Do you have a piece of clothing that never fails to make you feel good?

  1. My black skinny jeans make me feel I can rule the world. And when I tried on some disco pants in American Apparel they too made me think I could rule the world. However I can't afford them! Sob sob. You look absolutely lovely and ever so tall, dead jealous! Such a nice underrated going outfit, goes to show pants can actually be sexy! Lovely blog!

  7. I love these jeans. I saw a similar pair the other day in the shops and admired them very much. It's such a wonderful change from all the plain jeans around. I adore the nail polish colour too.
