new buys! black felt fedora and "mom" jeans

Both: Topshop

So, I'm back in the city, there's loads to see and do, everything's in walking distance... where's the first place I head to? Topshop. Duh.

Okay, in my defense, it wasn't my very first stop. But I did head there pretty quick-sharp. I've had my eye on both of these items for a while, so I didn't feel too bad about having parted with so much money so quickly.

I LOVE hats. I don't wear them as often as I'd like, as sometimes I do worry that I look like a bit of a tool... but I thought this black felt fedora was a fairly safe bet. Every time I see a girl (or guy, for that matter) in one of these bad boys, I get such hat envy, and this particular Topshop number caught my eye a while ago. Since then, I've been gravitating towards it every time I've even gone near a Topshop. And now I've finally plucked up the courage to buy it! This makes me very happy.

These jeans really seem to be dividing opinions. I've already been raving about them to some of my friends, and have received responses from every end of the spectrum. Personally, I love the pure ninetiesness (yes, that is a word. I've just decided.) of the "Mom" jeans. And they're SO high-waisted! I've been looking for a pair of jeans that are properly high-waisted for a while - most that claim to be really tend to start just above the hip, whereas these hit me on on my actual waistline, i.e. my skinniest point. Far more flattering! This also means that, if I want to wear a crop top with my jeans, I don't have to worry about an awkward bit of belly poking out (we've all been there).

Suffice to say, I am now obsessed with these jeans. All my other pairs have become obsolete. Sorry, old jeans!

What are your opinions on the"Mom" jeans, are you a fan?

  3. I totally know what you mean about feeling like a tool sometimes in hats, I love them but sometimes feel like I'm a bit overkill. I love both these items and can't wait to see you style them !
