There’s a big hole in your jeans…

…yes Dad, I know. It’s meant to be there.

I got these jeans from ASOS on a bit of a whim. I was already online buying shoes and decided that I needed to get some new skinny jeans. I admit, those carefully crafted rips are awfully premeditated, but I like it for a bit more of a casual look.

They are high-waisted, stretchy, ankle length and super comfortable. My only gripe is the fact that only one knee is ripped. I am not sure I fully realized this when I ordered and I am half tempted to rip the other one for a more uniform distressed feel.  Following through with this would be extremely contrived but I might just have to do it. My dad just wouldn’t understand.

I paired them with a blouse that I nabbed from my mum’s wardrobe and some new accessories – flash Ray Ban sunnies and grey satin heels from ASOS.

Jeans: ASOS - Link!
Shirt: H&M (old and my mum's!)
Bag: Givenchy - Link!
Sunglasses: Ray Ban from Sunglasses Shop - Link!
Shoes: ASOS - Link!

The shoes are a new love. ASOS introduced a range called Proposition and it’s similar to Spring Break in terms of comfort. I would say they are slightly more challenging to walk in but the satin-esque fabric is fantastic for weddings/events or, in my case, good for contrasting with tougher texture like denim.

The same time that I ordered these I bought a pair of Carvela sparkly sliders (in the sale) and a pink ASOS pair that are supremely comfortable. It was a good haul J

As you might be able to tell from the back garden location pictures above I am in the UK this weekend. The sun is shining and it’s absolutely glorious. I have spent all my time with my family but today I made a little excursion down the road to Lewes for 1) Superdrug and 2) Bills.

Bills started in Lewes and have now become a formidable chain all over the UK. It sort of makes me sad that it’s no longer a special East Sussex casual dining institution but if you live near one, get yourself down there for the best fish finger sandwich you could ever wish for! I have actually looked forward to this for months :)

Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!

Thanks to my parents for the outfit photos :D


  1. Your jeans are gorgeous, I love the title! And your shoes are all so pretty.
    Lovely post, beautiful blog!

    1. I agree to Katies opinion and now I'm thinking honestly about to buy the same jeans :)

  2. Bill looks so good! I hope you are enjoying your time in the UK and seeing family.

    PS. If you go to Boots/Superdrug you must pick up the Dove Gradual Tan Lotion and the Rimmel Blush in Santa Rose


  3. I hope you're having a lovely time back! My dad is the exact same way...whenever I stop by for a visit and I'm wearing jeans with a slit in them he always tries to hand me money asking me if I'm "too poor to buy proper jeans"...they will never understand ;)


  4. Thank you Laura for sharing. I love your mom's blouse, it's definitely a hit. I might just end up getting those shoes on Asos they look very fashionable.
    By the way, it's a beautiful garden! Have a great weekend as well!

    Love, Dagmara @ http://glamistahome.blogspot.com/

  5. You look gorgeous here, your hair is looking amazing too!


  6. I love this outfit. I would probably rip the other knee to even out the look, but I always feel like when I do it myself it's never as good.

  7. Oh I had the exact same comment from my parents when I went to visit them wearing my (very) holey and ripped Paige jeans!! Bless them, they don't get it do they?!

    Isn't that fish finger sandwich at Bills just the BEST?

    Hope you've had a lovely time in the UK and fully indulged in the wonders of Superdrug!

    I had an asos order today that wasn't so successful :( but hey ho, you win some you lose some!

  8. ps. Definitely rip the other side of those jeans :) x

  9. Ooh likey the jeans! I recently bought their whitby style with rips and are so incredibly comfy. I may need these too. Hmm..

  10. I love the Ray Bans. I had to get myself a cheap pair just to get the look. The Steve Madden ones are definitely a great, cheap alternative.

  11. I hear that line so often from my parents/family friends! I'm seriously loving those pink sandals!

    xo, Kyla

  12. What did your Dad think of your blonde coif?

  13. When people tell me about my hole ridden jeans, I usually tell them the jeans are super expensive and that "the holes cost extra" ;)

  14. Gorgeous jeans, I love ripped jeans, they add a bit of intrigue to an outfit H xx


  15. Love this look- defo an outfit I would purchase :) x

  16. cute!


  17. nice jeans, good for hot summer and spring, as then its like air condition hehehe

  18. Lovely post and hope you have a lovely time whilst you are back in the UK.
    My husband took his ripped jeans to his mums when we were both at university. She decided to not only wash them for him, but also sew up every single rip. He wasn't best pleased. I don't think she understood the distressed denim look either!


  19. How funny - we just got a Bill's in Norwich! My friend, from Lewes, was telling me all about its beginnings in Lewes and how odd Bill himself is.

  20. I love going down to East Sussex when I get the chance, it is well known for its wonderful restaurants especially the fish and chips parlour/
