I'm sure you all know that I can't resist a pair of skinny jeans, so when New Look asked if I'd like to try out their new Petite range I thought I'd give it a whirl - any excuse for a new pair of jeans! Now at five foot seven (ahem.. six) I'm definitely not considered to be petite height wise, but as I have a slim waist and narrow hips (I'm a size four or six in jeans and trousers. I'm wearin' a size six here!) I often shop in the petite sections of stores to get a better fit. Having rather long legs you wouldn't particularly think that the shorter length of petite jeans would suit me, but it actually works in my favour - I adore wearing ankle grazers as the cut suits my figure so much more, so these jeans are pretty darn perfect I have to say.
I'm not usually one to wear jeans on my hips, but it was a welcoming change from my usual high waisted, plus styling them with a slouchy tee, a denim jacket and simple heels hopefully achieves the effortless 'off duty model' look I long for. I'm also wearing my favourite secondhand scarf and bag for some added colour, plus I thought I may as well add a touch of lipstick (Mac Dark Side mixed with Creme in Your Coffee) too! Oh, and if you like lipstick and my post title, I'm pretty sure you will like this song by two of my favourite guys. I hope you have a lovely weekend! Love, Jazmine.

  1. Stunning, as always.

    I don't consider myself fat by any means but shopping for jeans is something I gave up on years ago. I ended up needing 2 sizes up to fit round my hips but then they'd hang off my legs or vice versa. To be a size 4-6 in jeans blows my mind! You look fabulous. xx

    1. thank-you! you are so kind.

      oh, i completely understand your struggle with finding jeans to fit - i usually have the same problem with if they fit my waist/hips they are the wrong leg length and vice versa. that's why i've embraced the cropped style (and now prefer it), because i'd rather that it fits me better on top!

      my body shape is a weird one as i have narrow hips and long legs, but i'm also kinda curvy in the bum department, so it can be a nightmare going shopping for jeans!

    3. I used to struggle with buying jeans, but the thing Levi's offers (the one where they have all jeans in three different figure styles) is actually pretty good, especially because they measure you out :)

  2. The jeans are fantastic, they fit perfectly! I love the low rise on you just as much as the high waist. It is most certainly a perfect off-duty model look :)

    Also, you may have lipstick in common with Jedward but your hair is much better :P

  13. PERFECT! The lipstick shade is so lovely on you.

    I had a huge inspiration moment from you when I went thrift shopping, I saw this beautiful black dress that I bought (sadly a little too small, Asian sizes!), and I immediately thought about you :)

  28. You are so utterly beautiful :) I don't usually comment, and I know you get this a lot, but honestly you just look amazing!

    I know the primark shirt isn't the star of the show, but have you had it long or do you think it's still in store?

  29. That length looks lovely on you, I've all but given up on shopping for jeans these days, it's too much hassle but I might have to give it another go soon, I've never thought to look at petite length jeans, might be on to something here.

  32. Lovely! Such a good idea about shopping in the petites section, I love the cropped look. I can never seem to find any normal length jeans that fit my long legs-- maybe I should just go for cropped jeans from now on, haha!
