And the details…
From the moment I slipped my first pair on (wide flare bootcuts with ‘Native American’ embellishment!), I was a jeans girl through and through. I had about 20 different pairs, all in varying shades of… denim, I guess! I went from major flares to skater girl baggy, classic slim to seriously skinny. I tried every brand I could and for 2 years, I actually worked in a Levi’s store. My love affair with rivets, coin pockets and belt loops had well and truly taken hold.
When I hit 20, I started being a little more adventurous with my clothing, and I get braver and braver every day. But I’m still drawn to denim and rely on my jeans when I just can’t be bothered. That’s something I want to stop doing.
So, for the next 5 days, I’m banning jeans from my wardrobe. I’m sacking off my skinnies, banishing my bootcuts and pushing aside my pull-on-and-go pair. And I’m being more adventurous in the outfits I do choose – I’ve got a week of shorts, skirts and stylish slips.
My challenge kicks off with this monotone marvel. The shorts were a killer sale bargain I picked up at the weekend – £39.99, down to £5 in River Island. I paired them with a simple polo neck and this loose, smock style top from Topshop. I also wore knee length black boots that were way too dirty from the slush to photograph! I really like how this outfit turned out, and I’m excited to show you how I pull off my no jeans challenge for the rest of the week.
Do you think I can do it, or will I be buttoning up by Thursday?
