FEELING BLUE




You may have noticed over the countless months of blog posts and Instagram photos that I don't wear blue jeans. I mean, I own them but I just tend not to wear them. I've looked back over my posts and I'm actually struggling to find even one occasion when they're featured in any outfit of mine! No wait, there are four photographs of me wearing a blue rinse denim, way, way back in my Keeping It Casual post.





Since this wearing blue jean statistic has to be improved, I've decided to show you how I actually rock them. Don't get me wrong, blue denim will never be close to my heart as my trusty black skinnies, but sometimes its nice to mix things up a little.

I don't wear blue jeans as I struggle finding footwear to match. People always say that black boots go with blue jeans, but I just can't see it myself. Yes, I've paired my blue jeans with some black shoes in this outfit, but there's something telling me, black jeans would look way better!

I love nothing more than a killer pair of boots, I have such a huge range to choose from, everything from a Chelsea boot, to a Cuban heel. However, none of these seem to work when styled with a pair of blue jeans. That's why my light coloured jeans spend more time inside my wardrobe, than on me. I never feel as cool wearing blue jeans, than I do when I slip into my signature black skinnies. I always strive to look and feel as good as I can, maybe this is the reasoning behind my black denim addiction.




Blue Denim jeans are a staple in everyones wardrobe, yet they're something I wear very little of. My personal opinion is that blue jeans don't ooze that cool front man persona as well as a pair of black skinnies would. I secretly liked how many of you agreed with me on this decision yesterday, voting on my Instagram story that you too prefer black denim to blue. The final stats were 81% for black denim and only 19% for blue, sorry blue, but by the looks of things most people agree with me.





As you can see I've still tried my best to make blue denim look as cool as I can, going for more of a winter look. This week I've had to pull my two thicker coats out of the back of the wardrobe, it really is getting chilly out there! This is one of my trusty All Saints coats which I've owned for years now. I love this coat as much I did the day I bought it. I mean it still looks as good as it did when I put it away last year, I can always rely on it for that statement look.





The blue denim jeans I'm wearing are also from All Saints, these particular jeans are super comfortable. They have elastic sewn through the weave of the denim making these jeans a dream to wear, as they fit in all the right places. Even being blue, I've got to say these jeans are spot on! This shade of blue denim works well with the subtle inkiness of the coat and makes for a different but cool look, I nevertheless still like.




Overall, I think blue jeans are okay, but nothing will ever make me change from my trusty pair of black skinnies, I mean, I couldn't live without them, they're as integral to me than a sexy hat! Black skinny jeans really are an item of clothing that I rely on so much, I didn't realise the respect I had for them until I wore blue jeans (for a day!) As without them I'd certainly not feel the same.

This post has made me appreciate black denim a lot more, it's been fun blue, but for the foreseeable future I'll stick to wearing black. If you're still a fan of my blue jeans you can check some similar ones to mine out below.
