THE BLACK SKINNY JEANS // AUTUMN OOTD

From a fourteen year old emo through to a 23 year old girl (with less eyeliner but still probably just as moody), a pair of black skinny jeans have seen me through a lot.

When I got the chance to explore the new boutique store Denham a few weeks ago (read more about it here), I picked up this pair of high rise black skinnies - aptly named 'Needle' - and I've worn them (almost) every day since.




The level of care and amount of consideration per every pair of jeans from Denham is phenomenal. There's exactly 691 stitches that make up their trademark scissors logo on every pair of jeans, no exceptions. The quality of the material is great and one thing I was worried about was whether they would stay black after throwing them in the wash. After a few washes however, my jeans are still as dark as when I bought them.

One thing I was is that I would've tried the super skinny style, as this pair aren't quite as skinny as they once were now that I've worn them in. They have a new range of 'yoga denim' which I'm really intrigued by so I might look to invest in another pair...

We bravely ventured out on a crisp, Autumn morning a few weeks ago. Teamed with a leather jacket and a cosy scarf, I was raring to explore a local ruin, Kirkstall Abbey.



This brown leather bag is one of my favourite things I own and also one of the best bargains. It was a mere £1 at a local car boot sale and I'm already a little upset at the thought of it every breaking. I very rarely go anywhere without my leather jacket and now it's getting colder, a tartan scarf is a must.

A recent purchase was the ring featured above from Empty Casket. Their name has been strewn cross my social media for a while and I had to invest in this beautiful gemstone number in their end of Summer sale. I'm hoping to build up a little collection of pretty, silver rings over the next year!

Black jeans go with most of my wardrobe, at any time of year, however I wanted to buy a new pair of sturdy boots to last me through this season. Having worked for Clarks for six years a while, it's only natural that I'm a little biased towards their ranges. They do some of the best, long lasting A/W boots and this year was no exception. I opted for ones similar to my last pair but in a beautiful, Autumnal burgundy. Chelsea boots are so versatile and the colour makes this pair my favourite so far.


It's nice to get wrapped up and cosy and I'm very much a fan of an A/W wardrobe, no matter how much I like the sun! You can see what David wore on our trip out here, I promise we don't match. Well, maybe a little. Only the scarves. And maybe we're both a fan of a turtle neck jumper. Ssh.

What are your key A/W pieces?
