What a week. It's been a busy one, and luckily for me involved some huge highs which I can't wait to talk about (I'm going to have to leave you hanging for now!) but the future is definitely looking bright!
Having an extremely lazy Sunday evening involving Happy Feet and Cup-a-Soup, I do live the rock'n'roll lifestyle don't you know. Thought it had been a while since I'd done a photographic overload post and my disc space will definitely be thanking me for this one. I continue to harbor a severe case of cick'n'save-itus.

'Jamie' Jeans - Topshop
First up, let me start this anecdote by telling you that I love jeans. Love 'em. You know how you always get those really high maintenance celebs that claim they live in 'jeans and an old t shirt'? Well I actually do. (Except my t shirts aren't usually old, because I get bored of them after a few weeks and buy new ones.) And I don't wear t shirts very often.
Anyway, back to the jeans. Shockingly perhaps, mine are mostly from Zara. Cream, blue, black, leather-coated, navy...with zips, without zips, flood-length, floor-length, skinny and slouchy, I've got 'em all. Zara denim just works for me, and my theory is definitely don't fix what ain't broke.
However, more recently I have a new shade in mind. Grey. I want a simple, grey jean. Not charcoal, not faded black. A light, stone grey, skinny leg, a summer jean (slightly oxymoronical, perhaps a British summer jean would be more correct.) And Zara just aren't delivering. Every pastel of the rainbow they proffer, but grey? None.
And then, along came Jamie.
He's slightly high waisted in that sexy, defining your curves kind of way. He's tight, but not indecent. He's soft but he doesn't sag. He allows you to bend, move, touch your toes while maintaining your decency. And he is the perfect shade of stone-grey (amongst many other fun washes and colours available.)
I'm in love and I don't care who knows it. The boy's got strong competition with this one.

I'd like to introduce you all to a hero(ine) of mine.
Natalie Hartley, Senior Fashion Editor at one of my favourite magazines, is possibly the coolest woman in the business. Not only is she absolutely stunning, she also oozes British 'cool' (take note, Alexa and Fearnes of the world) and she makes fashion look fun. Which is a lot more than you can say for most people.
Love her print explosion combinations, blunt blonde mop and obsession with pulling faces for the camera. No posh photography here, most of her photos look like they've been snapped with an iPhone on a whim... and her blog is all the better for it.
Check her out here. You'll love it I promise.

Charlotte of Fashion Guitar (brilliant blog by the way - check it out if you haven't already!) looks amazing repping those jeans I waxed so lyrically about. I never bought them (leopard jeans already take up most of the animal-related denim space in my wardrobe) but naturally I'm now wishing I had, she looks amaaazing. Head to toe Zara naturally...that's a girl after my own heart right there.
