Houlihans are my new staple

One of the benefits of being a full-time mamma (for the time being of course, I love my job too much to give it up just yet!) is that I get to spend all my time dressed up as I please, and don't need to abide by a dresscode anymore! However, I'm not one to jump to wearing drawstring shapeless jog pants like some of the mummies I walk by in the park. Come on... One can be comfortable and practically dressed without committing fashion suicide. No, to me being dresscode-free is the opportunity to experiment with my wardrobe even more than usual!

And it also means I'm able to indulge my love of jeans every day... You see, I believe jeans are the most versatile piece of clothing ever invented. One can dress them up or down depending on the occasion, all it takes is a different top and some well-chosen accessories.

I've already raved about my love of Goldsign in a previous post and I've been wearing my Misfits to exhaustion, but this year I've decided to try a new style for me: J Brand Houlihans. I'm sure this is not a new style for you savvy fashionistas but to me it always seemed like the style was a bit too busy for me, and slightly unflattering for my shape. However now that I'm taking my little darling out for a walk every day, I think my thighs have gained a nice enough shape to withstand the multi pocket look of these gorgeous jeans.

I've bought them in Vintage Olive and Vintage Black, and absolutely love the light fabric they come in. These are some easy pants to live in! What do you think? Do you own some Houlihans?

Order Houlihans online for about £245 from My Wardrobe.

Hubby is off to the states this weekend so I ordered a pair for him to smuggle back. If I'm going to left with the monster for 4 days solo then he should have to bring me back my internet retail therapy ;)
