Those of you who are fans of my blog Raindrops of Sapphire and those of you who know me quite well (or from DenimBlog) will know that I am completely addicted to jeans and denim in general. When I was a toddler, my mum always used to dress me in denim dungarees, so you will find a lot of photos of me wearing them at that age, which makes me wonder if that’s where my denim obsession came from? Apparently I used to love wearing them so much. As I got older, maybe around the age of 8-11, I used to wear jeans, but because I had problems with my legs at the time, the fabric used to be too stiff and rub against my skin causing irritation (if only they had jeggings back then!) so I wasn’t able to wear them often. I remember having a gorgeous pair of burgundy straight leg jeans at that age too, which I absolutely loved, but since they caused me pain, I couldn’t really wear them unfortunately.
As a few years went by and I grew a lot, I didn’t have so many issues, so I got my first pair of jeans for Christmas from my dad, I think I was about 13 at the time and I remember we bought them in Dorothy Perkins as I wanted a rainbow striped top to go with them! This is when I remember the jeans obsession actually started happening. They were a really dark indigo and really well made, so they literally went with anything I wore and I lived in them for a long time until I outgrew them. I then went on to getting different jeans, but since I was more of a tomboy at this stage and going through a grungy style, I was wearing men’s jeans or baggy boyfriend style jeans from Bench (I remember a pair my mum bought me for Christmas) as they suited my look the most back then.
After that phase (which probably lasted about 2-3 years), I started to get into GAP jeans. I went down the route of loving bootcut styles as it was a perfect transition from the baggy jeans and skinny jeans weren’t all that popular then, so I had quite a few GAP jeans that I lived in. I remember one of my pairs I had worn so much they actually wore out and ripped at the back, so I then went and bought another pair exactly the same to wear in. I was wearing jeans literally every single day and I would switch between GAP and River Island as I had a couple of pairs from River Island which I adored too. I remember also customizing my jeans, I would put crystals on the back pockets or sew some pretty patterns, rip them, distress them, put patches on them etc, whatever I wanted to do to make the more personal. I remember when I was on holiday I bought this iron on patch which was a hippy bus in a rainbow colour with flowers, I put this on the thigh of one of my jeans when I was about 14.

It’s sort of somewhat a yearly tradition for me to do my Christmas wish list post in December now. I have been doing it each year since I started my blog, but this time I made collages with numbers instead of listing a long collection of pictures and links. Each piece is available to buy by clicking the corresponding number under each image.
Most of these are fashion/accessory pieces as those are usually what I have on my wish list most of the time, and obviously a lot of the items are jeans too, like Rag & Bone and Current/Elliott as well as many Topshop pieces! A few of these are quite expensive, so I’m not expecting to get the majority of these items for Christmas at all, I would be more than happy with a couple of the little things. I’ve not actually asked for anything big this time round, so I have no idea what I am getting! What’s on your wish list?

Topshop Contrast Sleeve Army Jacket.
I know this isn’t exactly a personal post, but what I decided to do for each coming season is share with you my wish list. So this is my Autumn/Fall wish list and it contains loads of items that I have been craving or just really like the look of. Quite a few of the pieces are unobtainable, but I can dream right?
There are a few pieces that I actually plan to buy, like the jacket above, I think it’s so cool. I’m usually not a fan of such masculine designs, but I think this could work really well. I also love the J Brand Zoey jeans within this post at the bottom, but they are quite expensive and so is the Current/Elliott Sherpa jacket, even though I love it. I really like everything in this post! If you love the pieces too, I’ve included links for where you can purchase them under each image. What are you craving for the coming season?
Topshop Stardom Mesh Heel Platforms.
I wore this outfit on Friday when I went to the cinema to watch The Lucky One, starring Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling. I have been excited for this movie to come out for ages because it’s a beautiful story. I think the movie was really good, not my favourite, I prefer Dear John from Nicholas Sparks to The Lucky One, but it was really romantic and lovely! Although, I feel like no good movies came out for ages and now they all seem to be popping up at once!
I was wearing my Current/Elliott skinny jeans, my new Zara tan PU Leather jacket, an ASOS cream top, my Topshop Leopard scarf and my River Island Moccasins and Bag.
I bought this tan leather style jacket a few weeks ago when I was attending a mini fashion show in Bristol (I still need to post those photos). I think it’s so pretty! I usually stick to black for these types of jackets, but I think tan is a refreshing change. I decided to keep a really simple and casual outfit here as usually I like to wear a lot of colour or prints, but the days where I keep things simple, sometimes I love them just as much, if not more! Did you all have a nice weekend? Have you watched The Lucky One yet?
