So this is my pretty simple Sunday outfit. My weekends seem to be about comfort now, especially Sundays, which means one thing – trainers. Hallelujah for these little babies I discovered in time for a big hint of a Christmas present (thanks papa).

To add a little somethin’-somethin’ to the comfy look, I thought I’d bring a little sparkle back into the New Year. It seems to be nothing but sequins and glitter through November and December, and then BAM it’s gone. Just like that. Well I for one love a little sparkle, and a red lip too, while we’re at it…

I also wanted to introduce you to my new favourite black jeans. As many of you may know, I am a big fan of Topshop jeans, having worn my black Jamie Jeans blue. While I’m still a major fan, I thought I’d branch out a little and look for something a little different, a little more high waisted, and a little longer in the leg. In walks Monki. The Monki Oki jean is super high waisted, which I love in all my jeans and does the not-so-glamorous job of keeping my tummy warm in this ridiculously cold weather. The length is just that little bit longer than my Jamie jeans rivals, which means I can roll them up and get those ankles out (I discovered this is definitely best left until at least March), or keep them full length with a heel – who am I kidding? More like a chelsea boot for this gal. But still, so far so good – they’re keeping their fit.
