the skinnies

Skinny jeans – H&M £9.99
You know that awkward moment when you like an item of clothing so much, you buy it in every single colour. Well that’s just what I did with these skinny jeans from H&M. Every colour bar the black pair that is, just because I never wear black.
I surprised myself that I even tried these on; I think I own one other pair of trousers and happily live in skirts and dresses. Trousers just don’t feature in my wardrobe or in my head when piecing together an outfit. However, what I love about these trousers and made me purchase them (times three) is the fact they fit so well and flatter my shape. They are high waisted, flat-fronted with a tiny zip at the side. Good for little waists but wider hips. They are stretchier than your conventional jeans and thinner material making them less rigid. The only downside to them is the fact they seemed to be crafted for very tall people; meaning I have to turn them up a good few inches at the bottom. I think I might sweet talk the mother who is a whizz on the sewing machine to shorten them for me 🙂 
I’m just going to will H&M to make a pastel coloured pair now, mint green perhaps, that would be perfect!

Please tell me you too have bought the an item you’ve loved in every colour available??

    Errrrrrrr can i have your legs please Milly?! I love ALL these colours, i probably would have bought them all too!

    I bought a primark blouse in 4 colours! (The shame!)

  3. 17th August 2011 / 6:30 pm

    Oo I like these! Love the colours 🙂

  4. 17th August 2011 / 6:31 pm

    These are amazing! I've been after some trousers for ages for when I start sixth form but they've all been about the price of all three of these pairs put together! I think they look nice rolled up to be honest 🙂 x

    I love the green pair! xoxo

  6. 17th August 2011 / 6:31 pm

    Love the bottle green and cream shades! I think I'll buy the black pair…I live in jeans but somehow never owned a black pair. Thanks for sharing!

  7. 17th August 2011 / 6:32 pm

    Ooh i have two pairs of last years version of these and still wear them often! Soso comfy 🙂

  8. 17th August 2011 / 6:33 pm

    Wow Milly!
    You have such a great and fit body!
    I agree with the first lady who commented, I want your legs too!!
    You are not the only one, I also, sometimes, buy the same item in different colours, whenever I feel that that piece of clothes is going to be a staple…
    Love the last ones so much!

    h&m always cater for taller people- i've never seen a pair of jeans in a leg length shorter than 32, and because i have wide hips i have to get a size 12 and they go on forever at the bottom.
    these are lovely though, for a tenner i might have to have a little look myself x

  10. 17th August 2011 / 6:43 pm

    Oooooh these look great! Only £10? You'd never guess, they look a lot more expensive. They seem very versatile, I may look into purchasing some!xx

  11. 17th August 2011 / 6:45 pm

    I love the cream pair, H&M seem to have some really nice clothes recently. I ended up buying 3 sleeveless blouses from Topshop because I loved them so much.

  12. 17th August 2011 / 7:28 pm

    rather tempted myself now! love the red ones 🙂

    i just started my blog up, take a looksie if you'd like to check it out 🙂


  13. 17th August 2011 / 7:30 pm

    I need to get my hands on these, they sound perfect for me. Small waist, bigger hips and I'm tall! I think I might even join you on buying each colour 🙂 xxx

  14. 17th August 2011 / 7:56 pm

    Love them! They make your bum look beautiful haha! 😉 x

  15. 17th August 2011 / 8:03 pm

    I am very guilty of buying the same item in all different colours, and for £9.99 a pair, I don't blame you xx

  16. 17th August 2011 / 8:21 pm

    Eeeek, I love them – they look really nice fitting! And for 9.99 I am definetley going to buy a pair if I see them – especially that last pair the colour was gorgeous!♥

  17. 17th August 2011 / 8:26 pm

    These are a really good fit for you, I would definitely buy all the colours if they looked this good on me and the price is brilliant x

  18. 17th August 2011 / 8:27 pm

    Love the fit, colours and the price, might have to make a visit to H&M!



  19. 17th August 2011 / 8:36 pm

    Oh wow – those are so cheap! I LOVE them! I have ben looking for a pair of coloured skinnies for a while now.

    Right thats it im off to H&M in the morning! 🙂

    These colours are amazing, I'd definitely have invested in all of them, too, if I wasn't terrified of skinnies (I'm a classic pear-shape, bleh), they look great on you! xx

  21. 17th August 2011 / 8:40 pm

    hello 🙂 these jeans look amazing on you!
    would you say these fit true to size? or did you get a size up / down? please reply xxx

  22. 17th August 2011 / 9:46 pm

    The first colour is sooooo nice. Will soon be purchasing that!!!

  23. 17th August 2011 / 10:37 pm

    love these!! i may have to buy them in several colours too! lol the only thing i can think of is the topshop long vests/tunics, i love them and have about 4/5 different colours, they just go so perfect under anything!

  24. 18th August 2011 / 12:12 am

    I was just there today and did not see them! I want every color!! They look so great for the fall


  25. 18th August 2011 / 7:18 am

    oh i LOVEEE these! too bad skinny jeans do NOT suit my figure!

  26. 18th August 2011 / 7:24 am

    they look lovely, you have an amazing figure, the only thing i worry about it the length, i am 5ft so really struggle with length. is it wierd that i kind of want them to do a pale pink :s

  27. 18th August 2011 / 8:48 am

    ohhh im the opposite always in black so I need to take some inspiraton from you and break out into colour through jeans….maybe red? xxxx

  28. 18th August 2011 / 8:55 am

    I'm loving coloured skinnies at the moment, got some berry beauts from Topshop the other day. Gorgeous.
    These look good and quite a bit cheaper! Gonna have to have a look.


  29. 18th August 2011 / 8:57 am

    I've been wanting a pair of beige skinnies for ages and those look perfect, good find! xxx

  30. 18th August 2011 / 9:56 am

    I don't do jeans, because I have short fat legs and a massive bum… but they look so good on you! And they're so cheap!

  31. 18th August 2011 / 9:59 am

    These are lovely, and I'm not just sure if it's your legs but they look so flattering. I'm going to have to take a look now. i tend to steer clear of jeans because I'm tall and find it hard to find ones that fit my leg.

  32. 18th August 2011 / 11:06 am

    ehumm.. Noice Bum 😉

  33. 18th August 2011 / 12:04 pm

    They look great, but I never buy jeans or trousers in H&M because all the products are made for VERY high people and unlike you I don't have mum close to me to alter them. It's so frustrating. That's my main issue with H&M. 😉 X

  34. 18th August 2011 / 4:17 pm

    Love these! Might have to pop to h&m 😉 xxx

  35. 18th August 2011 / 5:22 pm

    thanks for letting me know about this! i need a new pair of black trousers for school so i'll definitely try these:) xxxo

  36. 18th August 2011 / 6:15 pm

    Ooh I love the bottle green ones! I'm sensing a swift trip to H&M for myself ;D xxx

  37. 18th August 2011 / 6:43 pm

    I do exactly the same-I always buy in bulk if I like something! Love these, may have to seek them out 🙂 XX

  38. 18th August 2011 / 6:45 pm

    I love that they're high waisted! the biggest problem i have with skinny jeans is that i seem to get builders bum a lot! lol..may have to take a trip to h&m..especially since they're only a tenner! love the green ones xx

  39. 18th August 2011 / 6:54 pm

    Ooh, these look great! And such a bargain too. I can feel a shopping trip coming on! Thanks for sharing x

  40. 18th August 2011 / 6:54 pm

    To be fair, if I looked like this in a pair of jeans I'd buy a life time supply!
    I love the bottle green colour, may have to look into these but I'll probably be disapointed as my legs are so short!

  41. 18th August 2011 / 7:03 pm

    Also – h&m website is rubbish! I just tried finding these online to have a butchers at the other colours but they don't seem to be on there! xx

  42. 18th August 2011 / 7:10 pm

    thank you all for your dear comments – I really appreciate you taking the time to read and leave comments. i love reading them all.

    @Rosemary Woodcock – i would say they are very true to size but if you are stuck between two sizes, go for the smaller ones as they do stretch a bit in the wash.

  43. 18th August 2011 / 9:20 pm

    These are lovely! I'm the same, live in leggings and skirts and hardly ever wear trousers so I tried a different pair on in H&M the other day but they were a horrible fit – I swear the sizing was wonky because I couldn't get the size two bigger than mine over my hips!!! Or maybe I just need to hit the gym xx

  44. 19th August 2011 / 5:41 am

    love these on you! you have the perfect body for these uh im jealous!

  45. 22nd August 2011 / 11:38 pm

    FAB! So going to look for these xx
