It’s crazy to believe how cold Melbourne has been the past few days. Technically it’s still summer here, but I’ve had to turn the heater on! Not that I’m complaining, I much prefer the cold. Are you sick of me talking about the weather? I guess I’m still so confused by Melbourne weather that it’s something I talk about often.
I’d been eyeing these jeans for ages, they even appeared several times on Lustlist posts. You know I really love something if it appears more than once on a lustlist post. When they went on sale I snapped them up in preparation for my next Tasmania trip.
The top was a spur of the moment decision, which I do no regret. I like to have a good selection of black tops, and this was different from any others I own. I picked it up on sale from Missguided and am really in love with it. It’s super comfy and I love way it sits.
SIZING – I’ve only bought tailored pants from River Island previously and I sized up with those. For these, I went for a size 22 and they fit well. A little tight around the waistband, but after an hour they stretched out a little to be more comfortable. The legs are a skinny fit, which is a first for me, so if you have thick calves, beware of that. To me, these fit like an ASOS Ridley jean is a 20.

I also have to remember that when I wear velvet, I should give it a going over with a lint roller before I leave the house. Otherwise, the velvet turns into cat-fur! Haha!
