Breaking in New Denim

June 24 2015

TOPSHOP Denim Shirt | TOPSHOP Ripped Jeans | OFFICE Heels | CARAVELLE Watch

The other day breaking into my new denim.
It’s always a struggle getting into them at first (I know we’ve all been there! lol.), but they’ll fit perfectly as they loosen up over time.
The Canadian Tuxedo is one of my favourite looks to wear, there’s an easiness about it which I love.

Speaking of easy, I’m on the hunt for the perfect pair of easy boyfriend fit jeans, and although skinny’s are my go to fit, I’m thinking of loosening up this summer. I remember I had a pair some time ago, but chucked them to the back of my wardrobe (thought they look odd on my shape), but if I can find another pair that sits well, I’ll be a happy bunny.
Let me know if you have any recommendations.

*PS* These jeans are a lighter wash of the ripped pair Topshop released last year,
and if you weren’t able to get your hands on them, now’s your chance.

    Love the denim uniform too. Can easily take it from super cool with trainers to super fly with a pair of heels and a blazer.

    It’s such a nice combination, I have the exact look on my blog too , denim on denim with ripped knee.

    Yummy Denim Sandwich 😀

    I love how the shades of blue are different, would have looked like a jumpsuit from afar if it was the exact same shade from top to bottom.

    You look great as always Shirley.

    Love this look! Definitely check out Topshop again – they have great jeans for all fits, and i’m pretty sure they carry a nice boyfriend jean. Otherwise go for a pair of classic Levi’s 501s… those are great boyfriend jeans too 🙂 good luck!!!

    Love me a Canadian tux, definitely a must in my wardrobe. How do you find you’re size in Topshop jeans? I don’t really understand the sizing and I want to get this pair.

  • Reply Majean June 24 2015 at 7:40 am

    Great look! Love the casual simplicity of the look. I’ve got a pair of boyfriend jeans from levis and they’re great. Not too baggy just the right fit!

  • Reply Lj June 24 2015 at 8:57 am

    Citizens of humanity has awesome boyfriend jeans. Shopbop has few on sell right now. We’re shaped similar and wear the same size. I’ve found their the only jeans that fit me well and I’ve tried countless brands. Pricey but worth it.

    Awesome look. Those jeans look gorgeous on
    you. It’s always so hard to get the perfect jeans.
    Still haven’t find mine, maybe I should give these ones
    a try 🙂

    Much Love, M

    Very nice! It’s always a hassle trying to find the right pair of jeans, but it looks like you found it. Plus, you can never go wrong with a Canandian tuxedo 🙂

  • Reply Samantha June 24 2015 at 1:32 pm

    Your style is always so effortless, yet put together. I live in Canada and have yet to try the “Canadian Tuxedo”, I might have to give it a go.

    Denim on denim has become one of my go to looks because it’s always so easy to dress up or down. Love your fitted ripped denim pants.

  • Reply dressMaya June 24 2015 at 3:56 pm

    Also, try Express for boyfriend fit jeans. I bought some from there not too long ago & I absolutely LOVE them!

    Denim x Denim one of my absolute favorite looks.

  • Reply jcottongim June 24 2015 at 9:07 pm

    Love this look on you! Killing the game as usual. As a suggestion my all time favorite is the 1969 “sexy boyfriend” jean from the GAP, they also offer a “girlfriend” style that is more narrow and slim in the leg. Price: $79

    Getting a glimpse of London is always swell.

    I haven’t done a denim on denim yet, hopefully it will be trending in fall again. It’s too hot to wear it now in Abu Dhabi. I’d melt or combust for certain.

    Love the ripped jeans 🙂

    I love a little double denim, I’m currently into mixing my denim colours when rocking the Canadian tuxedo arm (might defeat the point though haha) . I’m really impressed with the fit of Asos own brand jeans. I’ve always struggled with finding mom and boyfriend jeans that fit me as I find that most a cut to fit someone with a straighter shape but ASOS seems to fully understand that women have hips, bums and thighs. I’d definitely check them out!

    I totally hate wearing jeans that I still have to break in ^.^”
    Your pair looks absolutely stunning, though and it fits you just perfectly! ☺

  • Reply Ariane June 27 2015 at 3:59 pm

    I love this look. Unfortunately, it won’t be until like mid Sept before I can brave the temps and wear it. 100+ is no beuno. Southerner woes :/

    Your style is always so clean and crisp, it’s beautiful. Those shoes are the #best, I’m not even phased by how uncomfortable they look haha

  • Reply Understated Clothing June 30 2015 at 3:01 am

    The Canadian Tuxedo is a favorite of ours as well. We see that for skinnies we should try a pair from TopShop as the knee rip detail is everything.

    We recommend for boyfriend jeans Old Navy’s “the Boyfriend’s” They come in different washes and details.

    Dope Miss Shirley. I love this dress and it amazing when you double tap the dress from head to toe. Gorgeous is your middle name. I admire you so much and take you as that big sister I never had to look up to as my role model but there you are I don’t even know you personally but you give me hope and joy when every I look at you video and pictures. And that other video about body image give me so much to live and love my body no matter what or how I look. Thanks for being that my role model and a big sister to me. Wish I get to met you one day because you are my birthday month partner.

    I too am on the hunt for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans. Being as I am very slim, I can’t seem to find any that actually fit my waist! Yes, recommendations will be very much appreciated. I also posted a denim on denim look on my blog and YouTube channel, but I left the top open a bit and threw on a bralette underneath. Lovely!
