My jeans (pictured below) have had a busy week………….
Because my jeans (my old Zara faithfuls – bought at a jumble sale) – have faithfully accompanied me for (approximately) 5 x 20hour days this week – whilst I ‘pulled late 2am ones’ working to a deadline.
- And through this period they have (bless them) enured spillages of late night muesli, camomile tea and red wine.
- Have stains of pushbike oil, mud, tinned tomatoes, a splash of beach and a slop of Rioja.
- Watched (ALOT) of 2am graveyard shift telly (#poker)
- And on day 5 and hour 86 of consecutive wear have begun to smell – I noticed yesterday morning as we cycled (downwind) to school)
So today I took OFF my old faithfuls and popped them in the wash……..(!)
In reality I know that the life of these jeans; my old working mates, my 2am poker watching friends has come to an end – with one stain too many – destined to become a ‘painting jean’ :0(
And I’m OK with it (I think)…
What I’m not relishing though is the the sweat (the ball ache) that accompanies finding a new pair of jeans – or ones that you like.
Of course I will procrastinate about starting to look for a new pair.
Eventually I will start a internet search – halfheartedly, whilst drinking coffee and slopping around in my running leggings.
(And I will procrastinate some more.)
However Pinterest has helped to fire up my visual jean juices and helped me to start thinking about thinking to look for a new pair.
Below are the styles I liked :0)
Love the French relaxed jean chic!

WHITE JEAN – ‘enough said!’ – love them especially with a sneaker pump.

“Oh Black jean how I will never tire of you” looking great with a grey tee!

The ripped one? – “well I guess” but only if I can rip the stains out of my Zara pair?
