ASOS FARLEIGH JEANS: A LOVE AFFAIR7:00 pm
You've seen my ripped jeans on here before, you've seen both pairs on Instagram and if you watched my November favourites video you'll have known this post was coming... I have a love affair with the ASOS farleigh jeans and I'm gonna damn well blog about it.
Like many of you reading, from the ages of 12-20 the only jeans I would wear had to be skinny. And when I say skinny jeans I mean cutting-of-your-circulation skin tight. My favourite pair out of the many I've owned throughout my teenage years were the River Island Lana jeans. Forever and ever, my favourite skinny jeans. But times have changed, my style has moved on, my waist has widened, I need some room to BREATHE.
On a search for alternatives, I found the farleigh 'slim mom jeans' on my favourite site of them all, ASOS. Now I know many people are averse to mom jeans, you either like them or loathe them, but give these jeans the benefit of the doubt. I'd never actually describe them as mom jeans, they're halfway between that and classic high waist skinnies. Maybe what some brands would call 'girlfriend jeans' (don't get me started on this whole thing). The ASOS farleigh jeans are perfect. They have the perfect mix of looks and comfort, the look doesn't compromise the comfort and the comfort sure as hell doesn't compromise the look.
I bought my first farleigh jeans in the washed black rinse with the busted knees maybe a year ago now. They're still keeping up pretty well considering I wear them at least twice a week. So last month I thought it was about time I bought a second pair. I mean, once you find the pair, you're set for life. You know?
I used to be anti blue jeans, I liked my black pair and that was it. But with the persuasive styling of Megan Ellaby I went for it. I bought my second pair of farleigh jeans in the Gwen mid stonewash blue and it's safe to say I'm in love. I may or may not have worn them for three days straight once they arrived. I don't even care if that's gross they're too pretty for that to even matter.
As I hope these pictures show, the ASOS farleigh jeans are pretty versatile. These two pairs alone look completely different and can be styled in dramatically different ways. You can dress them up or down, with flats or heels, for uni or drinks. And that's what makes them such a staple in my wardrobe. So thank you, ASOS, for making the best jeans I've ever had the pleasure to put my legs in.
Shop the farleigh jeans here to find your fave wash - and no, this post isn't sponsored, I just love these jeans that much. (But ASOS if you're reading this hmu I'm a big fan).
Good vibes guys ✌
