|Can I first just point out, that apart from being an item of my work uniform (2 years ago) I actually haven't worn jeans for my own personal style in probably... near enough 8 years? Aren't I crazy?|
Hello blogger folk! Yes, today I am here to talk about... jeans. A staple item for the normal human being, but apparently for me until recently, completely optional. I went home this last weekend to visit my family, and I decided to try on a pair of my mum's jeans. I was stupidly nervous because I have absolutely no idea what size I am, and if I didn't fit into a certain size, I was anticipating a bit of a self-hate body session.
Until the other day, all I wore were literally leggings and tights. Not even tights so much, anymore. If my leggings are a bit see-through, I usually whipped a skirt on for good measure... it had never actually crossed my mind to wear pants that weren't tracksuit bottoms or black work pants until this one singular moment that I happened to be walking past the clean washing basket. So I tried them on. I showed my mum.
'Chlo! Why don't you have jeans? You look nice! Go out and get yourself some!'
I thought 'Shit.' I had absolutely no idea what style to buy, what size, what colour... I had absolutely no clue. I had sort of an idea of the size, but I guess I've always had the fear of not fitting into a size that I thought I was, or wanted to be. I'm really tight with my money when it comes to clothes. I'm poor as hell, and my first thought were 'New Look? Asos? River Island?' ...expensive places to get jeans. Then a brainwave happened, and I trotted off to Tesco.
I bought the two pairs of jeans above. Bootcut (.. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or not. I guess we'll see tomorrow when I wear them) and some jeggings (So I can wean myself into wearing jeans and not feel like I'm hanging up my leggings forever and a day) ...aren't I completely crazy? If you had any doubts before... this is your confirmation. What's best about the experience? Together, I spent £20 buying both of these. F&F, you bloomin' GEMS!

What are you thoughts? Am I completely mental for not wearing jeans, or am I completely sane? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for stopping by.
