I’d never been to the south of France at Easter time before but it was just the kind of weather I adore. Too cold for getting wobbly bits out, too warm for resorting to Ugg boots, what I call trans-seasonal weather in which I always release my ankles. For years now I have been an avid believer in the slimming and lengthening qualities of the 7/8th length jean and due to the London weather being North Pole like I’ve been longing to wear my ankle exposing J Brand and Frame jeans. I like to wear mine about half an inch to an inch above the ankle and remember ladies (as I often forget after a miserable winter) a waxed, moisturised lower leg is advised!

I am unable to wear much jewellery at the moment due to my baby, who would potentially get injured by bracelets and rings and could potentially injure me by tugging on my earrings, so I’m accessory free. Instead of getting me down I’ve decided that this fashion health and safety issue will lead me further in my exploration of minimalism and simple, classic items such as good old blue jeans.

The jeans I am wearing are a boyfriend fit, although frankly I find the concept of a tight jean being a boyfriend fit rather ridiculous, unless your boyfriend is a David Bowie type… actually that sounds quite exciting… They are soft, comfortable and certainly make me feel very fresh as they are just the right faded indigo for Spring/Summer 2013 (although, perhaps one should add neo 90’s ripped holes to be absolutely spot on?) They came rolled up into a 7/8th length which immediately endeared them to me and over all I’d say they are worth the hype if only because of their neat simplicity. I wore mine with simple Lanvin flats and they look great with heels too, but before you open another window to buy a pair be warned, their sizing system is very strange. I’m all for flattering the customer but the jeans I have are a 25 and my waist is a 27 at best. Also, to achieve the not quite skin tight skinny feel in the leg I had to compromise the fit of the waist and had the waist band taken in still further. All a bit of a pain but I do love them and enjoyed cracking them out in France.
