Going out for lunch is something I love to do, who doesn’t but I do prefer Brunch or Dinner I don’t know why maybe it’s because it’s in the middle of the day it’s an awkward time I like it to be morning or evening so I feel productive in the day. Or it could be that it’s getting that balance of what to wear when going out at 1 pm for lunch & cocktails, that you don’t go casual but you definitely don’t want to be wearing your little black dress either. Usually, for me, I would wear ankle boots & with a little floaty dress possibly a maxi or knee length depending on the time of the year but it’s still cold so I decided to try out a few more options.
As I’ve probably made pretty clear on the blog numerous times I’m not a jeans girl but now & then there are some pairs you come across & in this particular case they are just simply fun! I saw a pair a few weeks ago whilst getting caught up in street style images from Fashion Week I seen a pair of jeans with ruffles flares & instantly loved them, they were my kind of jean!
They are definitely a statement pair of jeans & not your average pair that you would throw on & wear to the supermarket but they are the kind of pair that will add that extra something to your outfit. With these jeans in mind, I have been on the look out for a similar pair so when I came across a pair that was pretty much exactly the same from Zara well I knew I had to take a pair home with me.
So with these perfectly ruffled cropped flare jeans now safely in my wardrobe it was just about finding the right occasion to wear them so when my boyfriend & I decided on a Saturday lunch date then I knew they would be perfect. Teaming them with a platform heel shoe to really accentuate the detail of the ruffles, plus it’s a date & we were out for cocktails heels was the only option. Still keeping a touch of me in the outfit in this pretty vintage pink blouse that I just love & know will be a piece I will get so much wear out of over the Spring/Summer. All pulled together it was the perfect outfit for our lunch date! AA x
