The best two days of the week - spend it well!

I look forward to the weekend as much as the next person! While my weekends these days are generally full of lots of blogging work and errands, I always make sure that there's equal amount of downtime so I can relax and take a break to enjoy my time. Most of the time this means adventures around town with Rohan, cheese platters with friends or a nice movie session on the couch!  Whatever it is, these moments are certainly my favourite way to spend a weekend.


My perfect wardrobe essential for a weekend doing any of the above, and the piece I find myself turning to more than anything else is first and foremost, black denim. Not only are the styling possibilities endless with a pair of black jeans, but the comfort factor is high - and when it's good quality denim, you know you're going to feel amazing while wearing them!

The latest denim to enter my wardrobe is this pair of Marks & Spencer denim jeggings - the most comfortable and perfectly fitting pair of denim I've had the pleasure of wearing in a long time! Maybe it's because they are more of a 'jeggings' style than a normal jean, or it's just because I can tell the feel of the quality denim on my body, these bad boys are a dream to wear.

The first outfit, styled with a luxe knit, gorgeous tartan trench coat and the shoe of the season, the slip on mule, is perfect for those weekend adventures where you're looking for a little bit of sophistication. I took this outfit out for a glass of wine with friends and loved how comfortable and relaxed I felt in it, not to mention the compliments I got on the trench coat!

My second outfit styled back with the denim jeggings was something a bit more casual and fun - perfect for Sunday brunch (my favourite social activity!). This white broderie blouse with flared sleeves was the perfect pairing with the black denim and because of the sleeve detail, a super comfortable (and extremely warm!) textured coat was the perfect more muted outerwear choice. Also let's just talk about these flatform brouge shoes - I am obsessed!


To me, these outfits are my idea of the perfect combinations to enjoy weekend moments in, however you like to spend it. If you're like me who likes to finish the weekend with a Sunday night movie, I've road tested these denim jeggings and not only will they take you through a weekend looking stylish, but they also pass the comfy couch test!

Is denim a staple of your weekend wear too?
