Come Shop With Me..

I’m sure most of you will agree that jeans are absolutely the hardest thing to shop for.
I tried on a few pairs and have had to accept that super skinnies really don’t flatter my shape. Unfortunately there’s not a lot else out there on the high street as they’re so popular. Luckily I did find a nice pair of boot cuts (top right) that *just* fit me in Dorothy Perkins… I wanted them a little tight as my tummy is still swollen and I don’t want them to be huge on me in a month. 
I was shopping for anything everything but I knew I wanted a good pair of jeans, some basic tops and a wear-with-all cardigan. I got a coupe of scoop necked tops (wearing in the pictures) but the knitwear eluded me. Either it was too scratchy, didn’t look like it would hold up in the wash or was just plain awful. I’m probably the most picky about cardigans. When I find one I like I need to buy it because it could be years before I find another. I’ve seen a couple I like online but I’m never sure of the material.. may just have to chance it.
So.. when I couldn’t find more than a couple of things I liked Lee took me to look at watches. He said he’d initially wanted to get me a Michael Kors watch as he knew how much I’d wanted one but they just seem so expensive.. I’m not sure. These are the two we were considering…

The one on the left I think is my favourite as it’s a bit more classic and I can wear it everyday, the one on the right was in the sale which is a nice bonus but it’s a bit flashy. The strap is clear perspex so it doesn’t feel as robust and it’s still not cheap for something that doesn’t feel very substantial. I would like a watch that’s swim proof so I never have to take it off.. reason being I NEVER remember to put a watch on! I’m looking at alternatives but what do you guys think? Any suggestions of must-haves you think I should check out are also welcome! 
What’s on YOUR list?

    Ooo they're stunning watches – can I ask where you looked at them? I actually really like the perspex one on the right x

    skinny jeans don't suit me either. I usually buy my jeans from next as they seem to fit me best

    I hate shopping for jeans! So much that I've pretty much given up on them and now I just live in jeggings and leggings haha. Those watches are so gorgeous, I'm dying to get my hands on a Michael Kors rose gold watch!

    glad to see you all feel the same way about jeans shopping!
    I'm really tempted by the watch but I think perhaps the money could be better spent elsewhere… mmm… toughie! x

    I'm also a massive fan of Michael Kors watches, particularly the rose gold ones. Out of the two you've shown I definitely prefer the one on the left. Like you said, it looks more elegant and more robust.
