Coloured jeans update

I know you have all been waiting with bated breath for an update on the coloured jeans situation. I am pleased to report that a pair have been found, bought and worn as you can see from the picture. The original Warehouse mint coloured ultra skinny ones had to go back I'm afraid; I thought about it and decided children and light coloured clothing don't mix, plus the colour washed me out. I opted for this dark pink colour instead as it also went nicely with this bird print top, alI from Warehouse. I do love the idea of jeans that are a bit different to the norm and also nice and colourful for spring.

However these are not the comfort option and I was glad to take them off at the end of the day rather like a too tight pair of shoes. I did notice in London a lot of coloured jeans being worn though the main wearers did seem to be 14 year old French exchange students.

Am I too old for coloured skinny jeans? What do you think?

  1. I have no idea how old you are, but I think if you want to wear coloured jeans then wear them! It's how you rock a look that counts!!

    1. True but it doesn't do much for the confidence when all the other wearers are 14!

  2. I agree with mother.wife.me - never too old. It's how you wear them! I got some recently (peachy colour) and it's quite a plunge after years of good old blue denim. Still, once you've worn them a few times they feel and look 'normal' don't they? Not only have I now conquered coloured jeans but I have also gone down the printed-trouser route. Again, a big leap of fashion faith and a move away from plain ones! Michelle

    1. Peachy colour sounds very good and also very K-Middy (my idol). I'm down with the colour now (as they say) it's just the fit. I think I should have worn them around the house for a few hours and done some lunges/squats to check they were sustainable for long hours. oh well, no pain no gain!

  4. I'm not too old (older than you!)so therefore you aren't either, bought myself a blue pair today too! Loving the printed ones just got to find ones that aren't too loud! I change my clothes as soon as I hit the front door I'm afraid, too much bleach, kiddy food etc!

    We had a French aupair once, lovely lovely girl but even here lingerie was designer, I think its in their genes, no pun intended! Tried to amend my first post without success.

    1. Thanks! I saw the printed ones in Warehouse too but wondered if they might be the sort of thing that would soon go in the sale. I try and buy classics as I don't have enough money to buy too many "on trend" items. Hopefully the dark pink jeans are classics and not a fad!

  5. I think you should wear whatever you want to and whatever colour jeans you want to....For me personally, i don't think my legs are slim enough just yet for any colour other than blue or black, but I am proud to say that since getting to grips weight wise, I have been out and bought myself denim shorts which is a major step forward for me...

    I think your pic looks fab so stick with them..

    1. Aw thanks. I must say I've seen plenty of non stick thin people in the coloured jeans and I think as long as you buy the ones with plenty of elastane in them they look great. Having said that they are definitely *not* the comfort option!

  6. They are gorgeous on you and you are certainly not too old for them! Are they from Warehouse also? I've been looking for that colour myself x

    1. Yes from Warehouse! there was a 25% off day so they worked out at £30 which I thought was quite reasonable. I had a quick look at the Oasis ones in Covent Grd yesterday and I think the quality of those was slightly better. It's all about trying on loads and seeing which ones fit best, but who has the time or patience for that?!

  7. What a gorgeous colour! And you can certainly rock that look, am very jealous (like the bird shirt as well, have gorgeous Warehouse scarf with bird motif from last season)
