Would you believe I haven't done an outfit post in over a month?! That's mainly because I haven't worn anything that exciting and I wouldn't want to bore you with my tracksuit collection ;-) But fear not as I have an outfit post for you today featuring my new love; Ripped jeans!

Ripped jeans have been everywhere this summer and I finally jumped on the bandwagon and got myself a pair. I was very hesitant about buying these as I've never been a huge fan of ripped jeans. In fact, back in the early 2000's when they were all the rage I absolutely hated them and I used to shudder at the sight of them! I always thought they looked quite tacky but they've definitely improved since then and I've actually grown to like them. I tried these on ages ago and I put them back because I wasn't 100% sure about them. But when I was browsing in Zara recently I noticed they were on sale for €20! and before I knew it I was headed to the checkout with these bad boys in my hands.

I had so many doubts running through my mind about these when I first bought them but it's safe to say I'm truly in love with them now. In fact, I've barely even taken them off since I got them!

 I wore this very laid back outfit on Sunday and this is what I would typically wear on a sunday, it's comfy and casual - perfect for a chilled Sunday! I paired the jeans with this simple white t-shirt that has a see-through detail at the top (I only noticed that you can see my string top through it when I was looking back at these photos! In future I need to wear a white one. Ha ha!) and a pink belt for a pop of colour. I also wore my new bracelets from Parfois (read my haul post here) and my cute leopard print runners from Penneys that only cost €3! Did I hear someone say bargain?

What are your thoughts on ripped jeans? Do you have a pair?

  3. I have never bought a pair of ripped jeans for the fear of being cold in the winter, lol! But I do have ALOT of ripped jean shorts. Those jeans suit you well :)

    1. Thanks Chloe! That's actually another reason why I was hesitant about buying them ;-) I'll have to try to get as much wear out of them as possible before the winter! Ha ha! Cliona xx
