TODAY: Flares

jacket: Urban Outfitters | top: Zara (sale) | jeans: Frame Denim | bag: Phillip Lim pashli | boots: Topshop (old) | sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs 

Flares are a very love or hate thing, I think. I’m firmly in the love camp, as I’ve been searching for the perfect pair since approximately 2010. I don’t know whether it’s the 70’s or denim trends that are pushing some amazing pairs out into the high street, but I’m all for it. This particular pair fit so well and I’ll definitely be wearing them to death this year. Seriously though, if you’re short or hate your hips/thighs, buy some flares. They’re the most leg lengthening and flattering things you’ll ever throw on your lower body.

I decided to pair mine with a staple stripes and leather jacket combo as, well, you can’t really go wrong can you? I’ve seen this on some of my favourite style bloggers, so had to replicate it. I shoved on my favourite wedges too just to go all out with the trend, plus they’re mega comfy. Like, a solid eight hours at work and you don’t even ache kinda comfy. I’ll be sad on the day they fall apart!

Today marks the end of my first week working full time. I’m writing this in advance, so can’t say if I’ve survived or not but I sincerely hope I have. I’ll no doubt be ranting on twitter, so feel free to keep up with my daily ramblings on there. Hope you enjoy your weekend! I’ve got a whole host of blogging to keep my occupied…
