Guest post: Maria's Outfit of the Day

Hi everyone, I'm Maria and I blog over at Frills 'n' Spills where I write about the food I make, the places I go and the clothes I wear. Claire has very kindly agreed to feature me on here whilst she is off on her holidays and I have an outfit post for you all today!

As a fashion blogger I think it is inevitable that you are quite aware of trends and what is popular on the catwalks but also what best suits you. If you are regularly taking photos of your outfits you soon seen what doesn't look right and even better, what does work for you. Whilst I think you should wear whatever takes your fancy (orange flares anyone?!) there are certain things that always look better. Until now, I hadn't worn jeans for 2 years but when I saw these berry beauties I knew that they had to be mine!

Jeans: Miss Selfridge, shirt: Mango, shoeboots: Office,belt: vintage Laura Ashley, bag: Fiorelli (gift)

I have to say, squeezing into these super skinny jeans came as a bit of a shock as I haven't worn anything this form-fitting for years... They certainly don't leave much room for seconds at dinner!

I paired it with this loose blouse to balance out how fitted the jeans were and added this vintage belt to bring in the colour of the shoes and the bag.

I really love rich jewel colours and brown together and these shoeboots are so comfy and perfect for Autumn. I decided to really show them off by rolling the hems of the jeans up but I'm not sure if it makes my legs look really short?

What do you think, did it pull off super skinny jeans? How would you have styled them?


  1. These jeans look very pretty! I have a similar pair, but the fabric on yours looks much softer... Personally, I think skinnies are best paired with loose blouses like that. I don't do tank tops much and I think they're really good looking on skinnier girls only...
    And I've bought a pair of similar shoes recently and haven't worn anything else with my jeans since!

  2. Those are great jeans, I love miss selfridge for skinny's, what a brilliant colour.

  3. lovely colour - i've been trying to step out of my comfort zone with some coloured trousers rfecently, but i'm not really a trousers person.
