Two ways with a White Jeans.

Morning all,

I'm doing it again!!  What you ask .... comparing my blog to others!  Such a pointless, worthless and futile task!
You know how it goes, check out other blogs, read the topics, discover interesting facts, view fabulous shots along with dexterous writing - resulting in feeling downright fed-up and deflated!  Once I've 'picked myself up and brushed myself down' the answer, for me, is to re-visit some of the inspiring blog posts I've read in the past to recharge my blogging battery, affirm why I started blogging and to realise just how far I have come, and at the end of the day, does it really matter? As long as I'm happy.  I'm sure some of what I write is interesting to some people, and others have no time for it, and being honest I do that with some blogs too! 

"You can please some of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can't please all the people all of the time"!

With that off my chest, lets get back to fashion and lifestyle blogging.

How's your weekend going?
Again a lazy day due to the weather, hubby and I were going to make a start on cutting the hedge, it seems only yesterday we were cutting, striming and burning branches from our boundary hedge that seems to grow quicker than Jack's beanstalk overfed on John Innes strongest fertiliser!  Anyway it's raining!  Shame that, I can blog instead! Lol.

Thought I'd show you two ways with white jeans following the 'all white' theme of last week you can see my blog post here.

Last week when the sun shone so brightly it could have been middle of Summer, but the cold, crisp wind told another story, I went to the beach for a photo shoot!  (still love the sound of that - Gigi Hadid eat your heart out!  Hilarious laughter ringing in my ears.)
Esther Ruby took some super pictures again, I'm so lucky to have her work with me so skilfully and with such enthusiasm.

So what do you think about my two slightly different looks?

Having become hooked on wearing these previous season white skinnies from Matalan, 
I love both looks and love equally what I've paired them with.   

First up, worn with a navy blue slip over blouse which has a cute front ruffle detail from the v neckline down to the hem.  Long sleeves with button cuff and an elasticated hemline forming a blouson effect - good for hiding any extra weight that's often carried around the waist for ladies of my age. 
This comes from Bonmarche also available in burnt orange and wine. For a mere £18, you could have all the colours.
I've worn my tan slip on ankle boots from TK Maxx, plus a wooden bead necklace that's been in my necklace collection for ages, I can't even remember where or when I got it!  Similar on the Amazon website. (Link below)







Sporting my Irresistible me cheap hair extensions, they've given me so much volume I thought I was going to take off in the wind.





My "three colour rule" shinning through - sorry it's inherent in me and so hard to throw-off.
White - Tan - Navy.




Now here's white jeans with tan jumper. Having had this in my wardrobe since early last year see where I first wore is here.  It's proved to be a versatile little choice and goes without saying neutral tones are a must in any jumper collection.  I wish I'd looked for a scarf to finish off this look, although I'm not sure I have one, (make a mental note that I want need a tan/other colour and white scarf!)









Really like the colours of the beach and my outfit mixing into each other.



Hey, can you tell I'm wearing my Irresistible me clip in hair extensions again?




Here's my cute tan booties from TK Maxx again - comfortable, stylish and all round functional. Similar from Mantaray in Debenhams for £49 - See website in side bar.











Until the next time, stay safe and have fun!

  1. If you read my blog last week, then you know I'm a huge fan of the white jeans any time of year. And this is exactly why----they go with everything and every color!!
    I'm still quite jealous of your extensions---they look marvelous!

  2. I like both of these outfits Jacqui. The frilled blouse looks perfect on you. I'm always beating myself up regarding something blog related, and never feel it's as good as I like it to be.But on the other hand, that's what I love about it. The challenge of learning! X

    1. Thanks Laurie, It's so nice to know other people feel the same as me over their blogs! It really is a challenge, trying to get my head round something tonight and nearly deleted everything (probs being a bit dramatic, but you know what I mean)..x

  3. An inspiring post, Jacqui, both outfits are just perfect! Your shots make white jeans look just right for winter. And as always Esther has captured those wonderful background colours and you've blended in just perfectly. Amazing how those extensions work. And your blog is always a good read and entertaining, but we all have those days and it's a good idea to go read some other blogs for a kick-start to batteries when they leave you feeling deflated. Hey, that may be what I'm doing right now!!!

  5. Love both of these outfits - there are so many great possibilities with white jeans in winter. Your blue blouse is just stunning on you. I hear you on blog inspiration - I compare myself all the time, then remember that this is something I love, for me!

    1. I ironed my jeans today and very nearly put them on again! Lol. Thanks for your comments, they make me feel 'normal' in the blogging sphere. x

  6. Jacqui! Stop doing that! Haha. I am kidding! I know it can be tough not comparing at times, but the most important thing is that we do our best. That is all anyone can ask. That and that you enjoy doing what you are doing. I love these white jeans on you. Navy and white looks great and I do love the cozy camel sweater.. You may have inspired me to do a white jeans look too!
    Have a great week!
    Stop by when you can

    1. Ohhh lol Jess, thank you - through these comments I know others feel the same, and I really do enjoy what I'm doing, even if some bits scare me that I'm doing them 'wrong'. Can't wait to see your white jeans blog. x

  7. I like both looks! You styled the jeans perfect for each outfit.

    And I understand what you mean about comparing. It's so hard not to! I try to connect with other bloggers who are supportive and that seems to help when I feel insecure about my blog :)

  10. Those white skinny jeans look great on you! I need to break down and get a pair for myself. White with neutrals like navy and tan are classic looks. Thanks for linking up at fabulous Friday!
