I know what your thinking, she’s not a double d, and your right I’m absolutely not, actually very far from it. Today I’m talking about a different kind of double d ladies and gents, the stunning double denim. At the minute I’m mad for abit of double denim and I’m not ashamed to say it.
Giz alllllll the denim. Wether it’s a cropped number and a pair of jeans or a sexy skirt and a distressed denim jacket I’m all for it. This blog may come across as a small bit biased just because I work in Topshop and I’d only buy jeans from there but I think we can all agree they are the best of the best!
I got my jeans and my jacket in Topshop, the jacket is old stock but they’ve brought them back this spring which is delish. I’m not usually one for a pair of jeans because trying to find ones that fit me in the waist and the hips tends to be a bigger challenge than it should be ( litch the bane of my life but listen I’m all about self love lately so we’ll let it slide). I don’t really wear skinnies, I’m more of a mom/ straight jean kinda gal. That was until I found my one true love – dad jeans (wearing them in the above pic!). With a tight waist and a kind of flared end but not too flared to make your calves feel fat yet also similar to straights with more of a looser leg ( say this without taking a breath, cause I did) the fit can be described in one word – lethal. I’d wear them all day everyday if I could. I think it kinda goes without saying that every gal needs a good pair of jeans to fall back on when an outfit doesn’t work out so here’s a few favs that I’d happily leave myself broke without a pot to piss in for!
These jeans just smell of SUMMERRRR, I love a ripped jean even if they make my legs look like a boiled ham when I sit down, still love it. These ones are 64€ in Topshop, but don’t forget lovely little student discount aswell, save them pennies baby.
Bleached straights, well well well only one word really, massive. The slightly cropped frayed hem is perfect to show off them sexy ankles and at only €55 why wouldn’t you, as I said, every gal needs a good pair of jeans to fall back on!
Outfit inspo always- ‘ apple bottom jeans, boots with the fur ‘ – T-pain.
After a long Sunday of full fear and two takeaways I’ve finally came back to life and am ready to get back into a week of online shopping that I should not be doing and trying to convince myself I have nothing to be riddled with fear from over the weekend.
My outfit this weekend consisted of two things I love- a good bicycle short and of course a belt ( or should I say two ). I stepped a-bit out of the oul comfort zone and wore a blazer which is unlike me, but listen I’m all about stepping outside that lately ( Gwan me x).
Would u believe me if I said my whole outfit cost me less than €50? If yes then sorry I’m cheap. Also would u believe apart from my heels I was head to thigh penny’s? If also yes then ugh, sorry again. I decided to go for a ‘ just heading for a cycle but might stop off at court’ look, gorge! The thing about a good blazer is you can get away with the whole free the nip buzz if you’ve a pancake chest like myself- winning.
I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon of throwing a load of clips into the side of my hair as-well which if you ask me is bleeedin whopper, also helps disguise the fact I need my roots done so takes abit of the focus off that. I got the ‘ kiss’ clip from Azur Couture. Absolutely in love! I always feel like little things like that can add so much to an outfit, I also might of been trying to hint for someone to kiss me- as per that didn’t happen but maybe someday ayeee.
I got everything I wore last minute of course, all in penny’s Dundrum, the blazer was €25 & the belts only €4! I got the bicycle shorts ages ago but they’ll all be coming back in now closer to festival season, yesssss. My clear heels are my go to, v comfortable and go with everything! I think I got them on isawitfirst. A must have if you ask me.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with one thing and one thing only – a good ol’ platformed boot! I know what your thinking, ‘ it’s coming into spring/summer and this mad bitch is shiting on about boots?’ Yeah well your right I absolutely am. Regardless of sun, rain or snow I will ALWAYS have a boot on hand for any outfit that may need one and in my opinion for every outfit there is a boot. Controversially, I’ve been wearing tracksuit bottoms and docs, judge me if you want but it’s stunning.
Docs have always been a boot I’ve loved and since I’ve discovered you don’t actually have to spend 60 grand on one pair it just makes it so much better ( I am 100% an extremely dramatic person so no I don’t mean 60 grand literally btw x).
I went through 3 pairs of these bad boys in 5 months, I do blame myself though as I was doing a serious amount of dancing and I tend to dance quite outrageously when I’m drunk so it was only right that I lost one or two soles of my boots. Coming up to festival season if you want a cheap boot that you’ll probably leave down there anyway these bad boys are in Korkys and only €45, absolutely do the job.
The next up are a bit more expensive, a delicious fit all the same. I’ve also noticed my feet don’t smell like guinea pigs 20 mins after wearing these ones as well which is always a plus. I live in these at the minute and delighted to let you know I got them in Schuh ( they do 10% student discount, whopper). Full price €56 – but for you broke ass student babies, that wee bit cheaper!
And last but not least, the inspiration behind all of the above and the ones that will hurt your bank account but will last forever. The best of the best – Jadon from Dr.Marten, I’ve wanted these since forever and one day I will convince some sugar daddy to buy them for me I just haven’t found him yet ( again dramatic don’t take me seriously). Schuh has them at a cheaper price than ASOS at €200 compared to €220, only €20 I know but the more money for chicken nuggets the better.
All of the above boots are available without a platform sole of course, I just love being 7ft and towering over everyone.
Quote of the day is ‘ don’t be afraid to wear docs and tracksuit bottoms cause u defo look fine out.’
Anyone can just throw clothes on and pop on out the door on their merry way no accessories involved and what do I say to them people? FAIR PLAY HUNNY. Personally, something as simple as a belt adds ALOT to an outfit for me and I probably will never leave the house without one on. Not only do they help add shape & color, they also bring a pop of howya to any ensemble you might have on.
I’m known in work for being mad for a belt and I’m not ashamed to say I’ve an addiction to them. I feel bollox naked without a belt on if I’m honest and most of my outfits can’t be complete without one. Although for a Topshop belt you’d have to remortgage your house, the quality is something I live for. I’ve put a pic down below just to show how much better an outfit is with a pop of color belt. Now this one was around €25 which is a fair price considering I’ll probably have it forever and also as I said the quality- stunning!
The likes of PLT, ASOS & Missguided are obviously go-to’s for cheap and cheerful belts so I’ll pop one or two gorge ones I might possibly( definitely ) have in my basket at the minute!
This little stunner is around €10 on PLT and I’m living for it. The fact I wouldn’t have to make new holes with a knife and run the risk of stabbing myself is music to my ears. We love a good safety moment.
This big sexy thing is from Mango and I’ve actually had it hidden in my stockroom in work for a few weeks( juuuust until payday). At only €19.99 you can’t really go wrong, I plan on wearing it on hols with a swimsuit but would love it with a nice dress too. It’s real in your face and just screams give me attention, love that.
And one last thing to live by – belts aren’t just an accessory girls- they’re a way of life.
Hey, my names Jessie.
I’ll be completely honest my nerves are GONE starting this blog but I just need to throw on my big girl pants and bite the bullet. Its been something I’ve had sitting in the back of my head driving myself insane with for weeks now so hereeee I am! I’ve been in fashion retail for around 2 years now, I started off in AllSaints but litch hated my life there so I quit ( I know, mad bitch ) but anyway, I’m working in Topshop at the minute and it’s a dream! I live for styling people in work and seeing an outfit look gorge once it comes together ( can’t forget about also getting a good outfit pic). Anyway, this blog will basically be me shiting on about what clothes I love at the minute, ways I style them and things I feel work well together.
