I don’t know about you, but I struggle much more to find good fitting bottoms, than I do tops which I like to wear. How to wear slim fitting jeans, and what to wear with them always makes me fish around in my wardrobe for a few minutes longer than I should, especially deciding which jeans to wear (and ahem, will they still fit me.)
The old saying, “Does my bum look big in this,” is not my only worry these days, when the tum and hips are a little on the wavy side too.
But so what? As long as we’re healthy and fit we shouldn’t be sweating about being ‘model-like’, we should just sweat (in a good physical way) and also try to be the best version of ourselves as possible.
It also goes without saying that ladies of a certain age really do benefit from a little personal love and care. The ‘before version’ of me, above left, dressed for a comfy womfy session on my arse in front of the computer, is quite different to the spruced up version ready to go out for coffee with a friend, on the right.
While my clothes above are not new and were bought in England, you could recreate the look quite easily from high store offerings wherever you are in the world.
The top you choose should just cover your bottom which eliminates any embarassment at the front too. I prefer a cardi that’s loose and has a bit of a swing to it, and I’d wear both ankle boots or long boots with slim fitting jeans in winter and on cooler days.

I know a lot of you like Millers Fashions, and so I’ve created a similar look without costing too much from Millers online .
At the time of writing, the look below (jeans, top, boots) will cost you $79 all up without the handbag. The bag in the featured picture at the top of the post, is $30 with at 50% discount if you buy a second bag right now.
I love the pastel coral rose colour of the cardi-top, and I think the two-in-one look is flattering. The jeans are easy fit with an elastic waistband and they’re stretchy. The little ankle boots are cute and very ‘in’ at the moment. Check out all the lovely FRANKiE4 Footwear styles here.
With free delivery on orders of over $60 you can’t go wrong really, especially as there’s also a free 30 day return to store policy if they’re the wrong size for you.
