Outfit Post: True Religion Jeans and Vintage Military Jacket

I am finally in Whistler skiing with my family on the second part of our holiday. My children are so exhausted from ski school every night that they are in bed ridiculously early and so I thought I would share a new outfit with you! We had some quite major delays on our journey from Hawaii to Vancouver and ended up having an unexpected night in L.A. I decided to turn this into a positive thing and squeeze in a bit of shopping. We only had a few hours and decided to take our boys cycling along the spectacular beachside bicycle path along Manhatten Beach. This ended up at Manhatten Boulevard, an area of trendy restaurants, boutiques and hotels. I only had about half an hour and first of all popped into American Apparel, and unusually for me didn't see anything I liked. The shop next door was the original store for True Religion Jeans.

As I have been searching for a pair of boyfriend jeans for a while, I thought I would have a quick look, and immediately found the PERFECT pair.

True Religion Brianna Mid Rise Boyfriend jeans



They are a fantastic alternative to skinnies and are such a relaxed and comfortable denim option. There are so many different styles of boyfriend jeans out there, but these True Religion ones are just the right amount of bagginess (roomier on the hips and thighs, but fitted on the waist, bottom and tummy). This is what I have been looking for as the pair I currently have is slim fitting and are virtually cropped skinnies. I also loved the faded wash of the ones from True Religion and they have just the right amount of distressing.  I plan to wear them with sneakers and sweatshirts during the day and with heels and a jacket in the evening.

I also spotted this fabulous Vintage Military Jacket in classic army green - looks so great with skinnies or boyfriend jeans and I can't wait to wear it with a Breton top and a big colourful scarf.



Here are the True Religion jeans and jacket on their first outing out to dinner in Whistler after a long day skiing! I am wearing them with a neon and yellow stripe tee from the Gap  (SS14), silver circle pendant from Tiffanys and New balance trainers.


All in all, a very successful stopover in LA!

And finally, another Whistler evening outfit:



Indigo jeans - Mint Velvet (AW13)
Denim chambray shirt  - GAP  (SS14)
Grey sweatshirt - American vintage at Yard (AW13)
Snow Boots -  Mountain Warehouse (AW13)

Back to reality next week, and lots of posts coming up on what to wear this spring!
