A little while ago I was asked by Simply Be if I would like a couple of items to review. I have used Simply Be a few times over the past couple of years for myself so was happy to try out some items from their Spring/Summer range.
I was given a few categories to choose from and, after having a good look through their ranges, decided upon a pair of jeans and a pair of shoes for Spring/Summer.
The jeans I decided on were some high waisted super soft skinny fit jeans. Up until now I had avoided high waisted jeans. Being quite short and a little bit bigger than I would like, I wasn’t sure if they would suit me. Having lost a little bit of weight running around after the Little A’s (and now the dog!) I decided I would give them a go. I ordered them in a size 14, regular length.
When they arrived I was really pleased with the quality. The fabric is soft and stretchy and I thought they would feel comfortable to wear.
I wasn’t wrong. Apart from my maternity jeans, they are the comfiest jeans I have ever had! Being high waisted they sit really nicely above any lumps and bumps and avoid the problem of flashing when you are bending down to deal with the children! They fit really nicely all of the way down the leg and, although a little bit long for my short legs, look really nice with a pair of boots.
I have worn and washed the jeans a few times since they arrived and they have held their colour and shape really well. They still look like new and I know I will get so much wear out of these for a long time to come.
The shoes I chose were some Joe Browns Ballerina pumps with a lovely summery flower pattern. I ordered these in a size 7 which is my usual size. I have found the shoes a little on the large side, even for my clown like feet! With an insole and a heel grip I am sure they will fit much better, however, if ordering shoes again I would probably order a size smaller than normal.
I am really pleased with both the choice and quality of the clothing from Simply Be. I think their items are very reasonably priced and will continue to use them in the future.
Disclosure – I received the items featured free of charge in return for my honest review.
