Joining in with the Red Leg Brigade

Whilst on my travels this weekend, I thought I'd combine my two current favourite trends-leopardprint and red jeans.

After seeing the gorgeous Wendy's post on Inspirational Ladies in Red, I thought I would wear mine to show solidarity of the red leg brigade.

Its a very popular look of the moment, the lovely Kate is doing Red Legs Too and wonderful Mrs TNMA also debated on Red Hot, or Not?

I suppose it really is much like marmite-you either love this trend-or not!!

As my red jeans by H&M were thrifted a few weeks ago at the boot sale for only £2, I felt I wasn't really losing out too much if after a couple of wears I didn't feel right in them. The fit of them are a skinny straight leg and although I will wear them as part of a winter/spring look, I think I'll feel more stylish wearing them in summer with a striped tee and ballet pumps.



H&M red jeans from the boot sale, faux fur vintage leopardprint coat, Uniqlo camel wool sweater from the boot sale, Gucci black loafers, gifted Louis Vuitton holdall.

My other accessory-but not a style choice, is my white bandage-I woke up in the early hours of Saturday morning in such pain, I think I've pulled a muscle and I'm left handed too, so its been rather cumbersome and painful at the moment-at least my regular doses of anadin is keeping the pain at bay now :-(

It didn't stop me from finding some pieces for my new vintage Etsy shop though-I've still got some work to do before the launch in April, but can't wait!!

I hope you all have a stress free and pain free relaxing Sunday!!

Dear Sharon, I love red and leopard together. It's a great look.

Try Nurofen Plus, you can only get them from a chemist but I promise you won't feel a thing. I swear by them. Have a great Sunday my friend xx

Hi Sharon,
Thanks for the mention - still haven't found a pair of red jeans yet! I tried some on in Zara but they were too tight and they didn't have a larger size. So I'm still on the look-out. Yours look great - another fab find.

Vintage Vixen said...

They look brilliant with the camel and leopard print.
Hope that pulled muscle heals soon. I hope you're being waited on hand and foot. xxx

I love how you find some great bargains! I quite like the red jeans, may have to invest in some myself. Hope your hand feels better soon. xx

Please may I? said...

I love your red jeans. I tried some bright blue ones on this weekend, was very tempted.

Haute World said...

Ugh, I'm sorry about your hand. Hope the pain goes away soon!

I'm in love with your leopard look! Also think you pull off the red jeans perfectly. Don't know if I could do the red legs, because it reminds me too much of a professor I had in uni (he was notorious for running around in red jeans. And he was an idiot.) But I do love it on others, so maybe I should reconsider.

Ofelia said...

Sharon, you look so lovely; because of the outfit and because of your smile!!!
Love the combination of red, beige and the Gucci black loafers.
I hope you hand gets better soon and have a great coming week!!

I love red legs, but haven't found the right ones yet. Gotta keep looking... Yours are great, Sharon!

Pearl Westwood said...

Oh no I hope your wrist is better soon, on the plus side I was far too drwn in by your gorgeous hair cut to even notice the bandage. The red jeans looks great xx

Rebecca said...

It's SO right on you! And the red dress in your previous post is SO beautiful.

I join the others in wishing you a quick and complete healing of your wrist.

We're relaxing and getting ready to take care of 4 grandchildren tomorrow through Wednesday. I'm glad my husband is able to help me since my knees are in quite a bit of pain from hiking some irregular trails last week! I will recover.

You look fantastic! Sadly I sold my red zara jeans I bought in Spain about 4 years ago on ebay and am regretting it! I am still drooling over the coat!

Love the leopard print jacket, what a cool find. I'm on the hunt for something similar. Looking good!
