project no jeans month

Thursday, 25 October 2012

Have you ever had one of those moments in your life where you're just not happy with whatever you're wearing? I do, all the time. I figured it might be because I always look like a hippo in jeans. I have a mahoosive voluptuous derriere that isn't in proportion with my thighs which makes buying and wearing jeans a big chore. As said jeans don't fit right, I get what is known as the dreaded 'muffin top'. A girl's worst nightmare. 

I decided that I've had enough of feeling this way and have concocted a little plan in my head where I will not wear jeans. For the whole month of November. Despite my grumblings, wearing jeans is easy and practical to throw on when I need to run errands or meet friends for a quick coffee so this could be tough!

(yes, there are even rules!)
  • The project will take place between 1st November to 30th November.
  • I am not permitted to wear any form of denim jeans. Denim shorts included.
  • Any work related trousers are exempt from this project as I am required to wear a uniform to work so I can't get out of this!
  • I am allowed to wear leggings.
  • For every week I complete without wearing jeans, I will put a total of £4.00 into a 'kitty' where by the end of the month I will be rewarded with MAC Woodwinked eyeshadow (a little self indulgent, I know!)
That should be it! I think it'll be a challenge at first but I love wearing pretty dresses and hopefully it'll give me a confidence boost!

Have you ever tried a challenge like this before? 




  1. Oh my goodness gracious, this is such a brilliant idea! It's always so easy to forget what's in your closet when you just slap on jeans and a nice t-shirt. But not being able to wear denim jeans/shorts will make you really think about what's in your closet! Love this! Would you mind if I did this challenge on my blog as well? All credit will be linked to you :)

    1. I know what you mean. Sometimes I'm on autopilot and just automatically go for what I'm used to wearing and forget about those little gems in my wardrobe! Of course you can do this challenge as well! You'll have to keep me updated with how you get on!


  2. Totally cool challenge! I actually don't wear jeans, and I rarely wear pants as well, though I am partial to shorts. :) I just prefer the way I look in dresses and skirts! Good luck with the challenge, you will totally deserve that eyeshadow :) x

    1. Aww, thanks so much! I do enjoy wearing dresses so it'll be a great challenge :)


  3. nice!
