W O R N :: him & me.



I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of black skinny jeans for a good few years now. I’m kind of a tough customer, in the ol’ black skinnies market ;) I like them to be soft but fitted, with a neatly tapered ankle and a smooth black wash. Bunching round the ankle is a mega no-no in my book. I’m annoyingly right on the cusp of ‘petite’ and ‘regular’ fit jeans (5ft 3” + a 1/2 which means that petite cuts are too short, and regular far too long) jeans are often an awkward fit on me. I’ve tried Topshop, H&M, Zara- and there’s almost always something just a little off about them.

This pair from Hobbs NW3 line, though? They tick every box! They’re a gorgeous mid-rise, are so soft you almost feel as though you’re wearing leggings, and as for ruching and bunching round the ankles? Not a jot! Hurrah! I do have to reverse cuff them by about an inch or so , but they sit so smooth and neat you’d never know. Double hurrah! Let’s talk briefly too about that shirt, because this is maybe the second post in a row where I’ve been wearing it, and I’m not even sorry. I’d intended to buy it online, but then decided to pick it up in store when I was in London the week before last. And I’m so happy I did, because in store it’d been marked down by 50% so was a total steal at 15 pounds! Good old GAP. It’s quickly becoming my new favourite thing to wear.

We’ve never done a ‘his + her’ style post before, but when Jason and I popped out to take these photos of what I’m calling the Holy Grail of black skinny jeans the other evening, my fiancé looked so handsome and sharp I persuaded him to take a turn in front of the lens instead of behind it! Can you even believe that these photos were taken after Jason had done a 9 hour working day, AND had been to the gym in the morning too? I wish I knew what his secret was to looking fresh as a daisy at the end of the day. My appearance begins dishevelling from the moment I shut the front door behind me in the morning…;) (Oh and also, it was a happy day for me when Jason realised he needed glasses. Oh boy. I think he looks pretty handsome in them!)

    Finding jeans is such a struggle – I think I’ll have to add Hobbs to my list to try!

    you 2 are the MOST gorgeous couple!

    We’ve now got a dresscode at work which states no jeans but we’re always hovering as to whether that means just standard denim or any trousers jean-cut. These look great though and think they would just about pass the headteacher’s approval. I’ll have to go and hunt them out. Thanks for sharing! x

    Corrrrrr you two are a good looking couple!! I wish I looked as fresh as Jason after a long day. You made me chuckle when you said you start to look disheveled as soon as you’ve closed the front door – join the club! I get out the car after driving to work and feel like I need to start all over again.

    I love the jeans and the shirt Rosie – you look great. I found some really good black skinnies recently. I’m 4ft 11 so believe it or not, petite is actually a good few inches too LONG for me, still! I bought a pair of black skinny jeggings from ASOS in their petite section, and found that they’re thick enough and smart enough for work. In fact I like them so much I bought two pairs…!

    Get Jason in glasses more often – phwoar!
    Hope you’re well, miss.

    Oo Jason really suits his specs! My husband recently got an awesome pair of Speedo ones that make him look super sharp. Stubble + nice glasses on a dude = thumbs up.

    Have you tried Uniqlo jeans Rosie? I’ve found my perfect black skinnies there, I’m on my third pair!
    They offer free hemming too, so you can get your pair to be the perfect length for you.

    I find it hard to buy skinny jeans too. That’s why they’re normally so short in my outfit posts! lol x

    You look so gorgeous! I struggle finding jeans that fit too :( I’m also in between petite and regular and hate them bunching at the ankles. I tend to go for too short than bunchy! I also struggle getting them to fit everywhere! My waist is too small, thighs and bum too big! He looks very fresh – how?! What’s his secret?! x

    I am the same height as you, and having only recently become a convert of skinny jeans, have found it so hard to find a pair that fit well everywhere. i have to turn mine all up at the bottom. I love the nw3 range so must check out these jeans. And you should def do more couples style posts. I do them occasionally on my blog as I love my other half’s style :)
