Eco Made Jeans: Review

As with the other areas of my life, I try to adopt an eco-friendly approach to clothing wherever possible. As I mentioned in a recent blog post, I need some new additions to my wardrobe (as much as I still love my oldest favourite jeans, I bought them in Las Vegas back before I was even a mum!) So I was very happy to receive an email asking me if I would like to review a pair of eco jeans from JD Williams

They are made partly from COOLMAX® ECOMADE fibre, which is made from 97% recycled material such as bottles, so helps reduce the environmental impact of plastic and keeps it out of our oceans.  This innovative design keeps moisture away from the skin to help stay cool in summer (or at hot gigs!) so are perfect for all year round and a variety of occasions.

Review

These jeans feel quite stretchy and are very comfortable. The sizing is as expected and they fit well. Having worn them at two gigs already (and one venue was particularly warm!) the material does indeed seem to feel cool when needed but still as warm as any other jeans on a cold night.

They can easily be teamed up with different tops and footwear to either dress them up, or opt for a more casual look. For example, I wore them with boots and a long sleeve top for the gigs, which worked well. The fit is flattering, yet relaxed and comfortable enough to dance around, or laze around, or go for a long walk! I love them and would definitely recommend!

#Blogtober 2016 – Day 12: What’s In My Bag?

Ha, an easy one at last! I don’t own a handbag but my daytime ‘mummy’ bag tends to have waterproofs, snack, drink (in a reusable bottle of course!) and, more often than not, various natural items collected from our walks! Oh and my keys are usually thrown in there somewhere too. So really nothing exciting in there to be honest…

Graze, snacks, reusable bottle, natural collection, waterproofs

My evening purse is usually pretty empty too, it contains all the usual essentials but nothing else. It makes it easier to find what I need and saves security having to rummage through it!

Short answer, but that matches the uncluttered style of my bags… 😉
