In the slighter warmer months, it's my at-home uniform. If I'm doing housework I wear an old pair of Levi's with a turn up, and if I'm relaxing (and not doing anything to get dirty, like scrubbing or gardening!) I might wear my Bernie Dexter jeans. The other day I styled mine with a nod to the 1950s, with cat eye sunglasses, red lippy and turn ups. You might also notice I'm sporting a lovely red 'batchel' from the Cambridge Satchel Company - I won it! Pago, the fruit juice company, held a competition to style an outfit to represent one of their flavours. I dressed to represent their tomato juice, and I was absolutely delighted to be one of five winners. You can see the other winners and the entries on the Pago Facebook page.

The Levi's are too short in the leg for me, and slightly flared, hence the conversion into turn-ups! I have found that Levi's are one of the only brands of jeans that actually fit me and my figure that...how can I put this? Has a little more junk in the trunk?! Modern jeans are too low-rise, cutting painfully across my hip bones, as well as flattening my derriere and straining across my thighs. My Baby thinks this pair of jeans is the sexiest piece of clothing I own, and is like a Wonderbra for buttocks!
Now here's how the starlets did it in their bretons and jeans: Bardot, Monroe and Seberg. They are all so fabulous!
Do you wear a breton and jeans? What do you think of this classic look?
