Some girls are Dress-and-Heels Girls. Some are Stella-McCartney-Jumpsuit-and-Wedge-Trainers Girls. Some are even Miniscule-Sequin-Hot-Pants-and-Not-Much-Else Girls.
I am most definitely a Jeans-and-T-Shirt Girl.

I wear jeans a lot more regularly than this blog would suggest. They're my get-up-and-out-the-door favourites - I wear them when I'm stuck for ideas, when everything else is in the wash or when I just fancy a denim day. The right pair are flattering even on fat days and you can go for months without washing them. Come on, you know you do it too.
With my love of all things denim revealed, it's a little odd, then, that they don't feature here more often. Something I'm planning to change in 2013 as I give myself a bit of a style break and allow my often-hidden comforts to sneak in a bit more - chunky knits, Converse sneakers and jeans.
For the next four weeks I'll be working with Jeanography to bring you my Jeans of the Week - a different pair with a different style to create a different look every week. Another thing I'm planning for 2013 is to invest more in my favourite basics - before Christmas, I bought a pair of Levi's that knocked all my H&M, Zara and Topshop denims for six, and although £95 is a lot to spend on jeans, I've worn them at least 3 times a week for the last two months. I'm not gonna get all cost-per-wear preachy on you, but you get my gist.
So, here's to the Year of the Jean. My first pair are these dark wash, straight leg beauties by James Jeans. I haven't strayed from my beloved skinnies for many years, so it was nice to slip into something different, and these are insanely flattering on my Christmas Hips (TM). Plus if vanity sizing means I'm a 29in waist in these, then I support the concept entirely.
Are you a fan of jeans? Got a favourite pair?
