My casual day off denim look

I know what you are thinking, “Dainty? Your wearing jeans!” I know! lol, This is my second pair of jeans to wear. You might remember back in Summer I bought my first pair in years! Well, I decided to treat myself to a second pair for Autumn. I only really wear them on my day off and still prefer my dresses but I am liking being able to throw on a pair of jeans if I need to pop out on my day off. 

I thought I would share my fave pieces with you in today’s post that are perfect for a cosy Autumn day off. I am liking the cosy jumper, skinny jeans and scarf combo on my days off. 

My Jeans are the Petite Bailey high waist from Dorothy Perkins. They also come in the normal and tall range also. I still struggle to find a pair of jeans that flatter my figure and have a nice fit. I decided to get the Bailey as they have a high waist and I feel like they hold my tummy in. I also got them in a darker wash for Autumn. I think they will look fab with tan ankle boots coming into Winter. 

Knitted Jumpers

I normally avoid knitted jumpers as I feel they add bulk to my small frame. However, lately, I have been trying more of them on when I am out shopping. I noticed that if I stick to lightweight options over bulky ones that they aren’t that bad. Also tucking the front of them into your high waist jeans shows off your waist and gives you a nice silhouette. The jumper I am wearing above is a Petite jumper from Dorothy Perkins.

A chunky scarf

 The weather so far this Autumn has been quite mild. I love throwing on a chunky scarf to keep me warm when running to the car. Some days it is mild and I don’t bother with a jacket but the mornings and evenings are chilly so I like to keep a warm scarf in the car or office. I also am loving that there are lots of lighter shades of scarves this season, I am not a fan of dark colours and love the brighter pastel colours and checks. 

I hope you liked today’s post, Please let me know if you have any denim recommendations for me as I am always on the lookout for new jeans to wear. 

What is your fave look for your day off?

    Indeed! Dainty in jeans??? I was a bit flabbergasted �� But how appropriate as I just bought two pairs of dark wash skinnies myself. "Just Black" a US brand, made in the US. Good price too 68$ CDN! And I'm eying a cashmere jumper from Jumper (a brand that says it all) or another one from Oats and Cashmere. They are made shorter in the front.

    Must try those jeans – I love high waisted & am a similar size/frame/height to you! I wear dresses all the time for work but love a good pair of jeans 🙂
