Jeasns are a staple for many women and I’m sure I would wear them a lot more if I still lived in Europe. I usually find them too hot for Singapore, so they don’t get much wear at all. But here I am in Malden, The Netherlands, in my mom’s garden where they are very handy indeed.

Jeans are very practical when I go on holiday, and this year even 2 sets of jeans made it into my suitcase. I got a bit of criticism from some about my the poor fit of my jeans, when I showed you my very casual jeans outfit. But boy, are they comfortable! So they are perfect for holidays, strolls in the woods and beaches. I still like the comfortable look of those jeans, and I don’t have to worry that they get dirty. This is what these same jeans look like with these clothes and flats (not so nice, but very comfortable) walking shoes.

Still, I came across these super cheap jeans at the Mango sales, so I thought I would try them to see if they had a more perfect fit. They certainly fit tighter around the butt area and are a solid dark blue, which is really nice. But of course, they are less COMFORTABLE. So it remains to be seen if these jeans will be a success.

On this occasion, I wore them with a new top that I also bought in the sales at Alldressedup. It’s proving to be one of my most versatile and most worn tops this summer holiday. It looks good with everything: my white bell bottoms, my red pants and my jeans. I love to combine the dressy top with the more casual jeans. To keep me warm, I combined it with a simple red cardigan. Although the arms are kept long on this photo, I actually think it looks much nicer when they are scrunched up.

I also snapped up this Havanna hat in Amsterdam, which makes the whole look a bit more fun and trendy. Also from Amsterdam are these shoes from Hester van Eeghen. I love the bright patent leather and the comfortable mid high heel!

These jeans are quite long though and made for super high heels. Great to wear with my higher black heels for a super long leg effect. Still on my wish list are straight leg jeans, both in white and a very dark blue.

Of course this top also shines on its own. I love the frilly statement collar, although I can imagine that it’s not everyone’s cup-a-tea.

So tell me; Do you like statement collars?
