It's true - I rarely ever wear jeans, and as a result I only have one pair, but that is not to say that I don't love (vintage/repro) jeans however! I bought these jeans a few years ago to wear on hikes in Russia so that I could traipse through walls of nettle and blackberry thorns unscathed, and these days I reach for them every time I want to go for a bike ride or do some gardening. Comfortable, practical and very sensible, these jeans have seen their fair share of berry stains and mud and so far they are going strong. Since I buy everything I wear online, jeans can be a bit of a tricky thing to purchase since unlike a dress you can't exactly buy them a size up and have them taken in. However, the sizing for Freddies of Pinewood jeans goes by waist measurement, and since they are not made in the modern "skinny jean" style they are well suited to hour glass figures and the sizing is completely accurate.

I have always wanted to have my own vegetable garden but living in a rental has meant that I can't really have more than a herb garden on the veranda, so recently I finally got myself a tiny allotment at a local communal garden.  At the moment I am only growing small things, like lettuces and kale, but in the future I would love to grow something a bit more impressive, like eggplants, zucchinis and tomatoes - things to make fresh summery salads with and ingredients for lasagna! In these photos you can see all of the other peoples amazing little allotments that inspired me to get into this in the first place.

  4. I've been thinking for ages about getting a pair of Freddies but I was worried about getting it wrong even after reading all their sizing information etc. Did you go purely on the waist measurement or did you take the other measurements into account? These look great on you anyway, so you obviously got it right!

  7. Freddies seem to fit women with an hourglass or pear shape really well...if you have more of a rectangle or triangle shape, forget it....they are awful. I've tried ordering them twice according to my waist measurement and they fit terribly. I've had great luck with the repro jeans by Tatyana (formerly Betty Page)---or some actual vintage high waisted jeans that I've bought. Freddies look awesome on some women, though, and you are definitely one of them!

  9. Love the jeans! The colours look great on you :) How great that you are able to get in on a community garden.. I constantly talk about wanting to grow my own veggies, and have the space to do so, but I'm so lazy about it!

  12. Those jeans look wonderful on you and are such a great color! I've been eyeing a pair of Freddies jeans for awhile- they look like they flatter a figure better than modern ones and this proves it! I may have to get myself some soon! :-)

  13. I also never wear jeans or any kind of trouser. I haven't worn any for about 5 years! However I have just ordered a pair of high waisted cigaret trousers. So will be blogging about how successful they are!!

  14. Oooh! I just got my first pair of Classic Freddies, and I absolutely love them. They are beautiful and fit great, and as a sewer, I'm so fascinated by the construction details. You're making me drool over these red ones!

  15. This is the first time i've seen you in jeans or trousers and you look great. I still do not own any jeans but will seriously consider buying some for the autumn/winter. It is a little too hot for trouser wearing at the moment

  16. The jeans look lovely and match your outfit perfectly. I find it hard to wear trousers as well, but you pull them off so well that I might try and give it a go as well xx
