Jeans aren't something I wear often on my here. When I usually style outfits for my blog, I like to go for something a little girlier, like skirts or dresses. I like to dress up, wear my favourite lipstick or a new trendy accessory. But since I wear jeans quite often for casual occasions, like going to work, or last minute shopping trips, I thought it was about time I took something old in my wardrobe, and re-invented it with new bits and pieces.

You guys know how much I love bargains, so you'll probably not be surpised to hear I picked up these H&M jeans from Ebay a while ago, for £3! I usually style them on my casual days with a thin knit and converse, but today I'm showing off my new bits and pieces from Light In The Box, smartening up a more casual piece and making it feel brand new again! First of all, my favourite part of the outfit has to be these pretty out-there shoes. Black and white stripes, mixed with silver & blue may sound wrong on paper, but as soon as I tried them on I was glad I took the leap of faith and ordered something I wouldn't usually go for. They're super lightweight and probably the comfiest heeled shoes I own due to the thick cushioning. The mis-matched leather feel tops are rather like some similar mules that I got from Primark last summer, but I feel like this re-vamped wacky style is way cooler than any other platforms I own!
Stepping out of my comfort zone once again, this Black Sleeveless Blazer is unlike anything I own. It's classic suit-like material made my outfit feel so much dressier, and I love how it's double-breasted with pockets; making it feel so much more expensive than it actually was! I can see this jacket looking amazing with a pair of white kick flare jeans and a red lip, but pairing it with this monochrome emsemble seemed like the safest option to go for.

How would you dress up a simple pair of black skinny jeans? I'd love to know your ideas!
