DP Denim Challenge: Day 4

So, I've been getting off quite lightly this week in the Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge, but the last two days of jeans are definitely a change from my usual style! In fact, tomorrow will be a complete departure from my style, can't wait to hear your thoughts! 

Today's jeans are the coloured cropped kick flare jeans. I seem to be the only one of my denim allies that opted for the mint green pair! These aren't particularly flattering on the thigh, in fact I feel a bit sausage-esque, but I somehow love them! 

I can imagine wearing them in the Summer on the beach whilst eating a matching mint choc chip ice cream. Well, I'll have to imagine this scenario, as Canterbury doesn't have a beach. The reality of my Summer is usually sitting in the park by the river trying to catch some sun, shrieking in terror every time an insect is within a 3 meter radius of me. Thus infuriating everyone within a 20 meter radius of me. Très glam. 

I kept my outfit neutral so I didn't look slightly crazy, but added a little pop of colour with my Barry M #146 lippie.


 

Jacket - Topshop, Top - H&M, Shoes - M&S via charity shop, Belt - Primark, veiny hooves - model's own!

I'm also wearing some fake lashes I got in my goodie bag at The Look Show. Not sure of the brand, they looked pretty cheap to me, but I am quite enjoying the overt falseness of them. Definitely going to pick up some thicker lashes than usual next time I'm makeup shopping! 

In other news, I just got back from a highly motivational day at uni (probably helped that I watched this on the train - is it anyone else's guilty pleasure?) I am feeling quite confident but I do have sooo much work to do it isn't even funny. Will try and keep blogging regularly though, as I have heaps I want to share with you!

Enough about my hideously dull life, what's new in yours?? And what do you make of my minty sausage chic look today? 

I know I've been a bit slack in replying to comments lately, but I read and enjoy every one, and always try and click through to your blogs for a quick nose around, even if I don't have time to comment! I'll be rectifying this as soon as I don't have my Final Major Proj sucking the life out of me. Bear with me. I appreciate you reading this more than you could know.

  7. I actually like these the most out of all the ones you've tried so far! They don't make your legs look sausagey! I think they put you in proportion :)

  16. I think you definitely went for the nicest pair. I love the little burst of colour you've given it with the pink lipstick! Such a cute look. Very refreshing for summer :)

  17. You look great! *In theory* those jeans aren't something I would ever go for, but I actually, surprisingly, think they look great and am curious to see how they would look on me! (Which I'm sure is exactly what Dorothy Perkins had in mind with this project!) I'm confused about the name though - how are they kick flares?!

  18. So lovely! I love the colour on you, I don't think I could pull these off but they suit you so well! They go fab with the stripy top and leather jacket too :) xoxo

  25. Love the mint troosers! They look great.
    I'm enjoying the denim challenge. As a girl who lives in dresses and skirts I must say I'm being converted to jeans a little! x

  27. Since I love jeans, I've really enjoyed these outfit posts. These mint ones are lovely... they make me seriously long for the summer...and want to go shopping, damn it. Oh well-it is a lovely look and a nice way to make jeans look girly.

  28. love your style! these jeans look awesome - would never of thought to wear this colour but you've styled them really well

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the trousers. I didn't think I'd like kick flares for looking too flarey and short, but they look really nice on you. The colour is a nice change too.

    Your makeup looks gorgeous as always. Love the lipstick! x

  33. Those jeans suit you so well! I don't everyone could pull the outfit off as well as you do! :)

  34. Shush you don't look sausage-y at all. Although now I'm contemplating what flavour a mint green sausage would be, hmmm...
    I love the colour of the jeans and they do look rather fabulous on you! I approve of your choice of lipstick too, Barry M 146 is my current fave.
    Good luck with your project, you can get through it!

  35. These are the best so far!!! I have wanted minty green pants ever since I saw Run Lola Run! Which is… quite a long time to go on desiring them without ever having bought any, admittedly. But it is hard to find a good pair.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Nonsense! Your thighs are not sausage-esque at all!
    In fact, I think this is one of my favourite outfits that I've seen you in.
    Can't wait to see tomorrow's outfit!

  40. i really love this outfit, i think the mint green is a perfect shade, and the jeans look great on you!
    I am kinda too scared of skinny jeans, i bought a pair recently but don't think i can bring myself to post a blog pic of them ;(

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sausage chic works!! I have some pale pink skinnies from Zara which make me look a bit sausage chic and I've always wondered what to put with them as I can never make anything look good with them. You may have just inspired a new outfit choice for me, bravo!
