Mid Wash Luxe Sateen Super Skinny Jeans £18
Eighteen pounds, I said eighteen pounds. I spent more than that on the pre packed fruit aisle! And they're a dead ringer for the Zara jeans that I tried and couldn't get on with last year. The changing rooms were closed. I'm not sure why, it was only 8.30pm and there's a big red 24 hours neon sign outside. So, I chucked the size 10L in my basket - mmmm nice, right next to the cauli and for good measure the 12L too as the 10 seemed a tad skinny.
That was middle of last week and they've languished at the bottom of my wardrobe ever since...until today when I remembered them. So on went the 10 and OMG my legs felt like they were being strangled. Don't get me wrong, there is so much stretch in these babies that they move with you but oh no I can't do the claustrophobic leg feeling anymore. I tried on the 12 not holding much hope as I thought they might be too big around the top but actually they are absolutely perfect. My legs can breathe and the top didn't feel as if they were falling down all day. In fact they stayed put, didn't budge an inch. It's all down to the incredible stretch which springs back and doesn't bag.
I can't recommend them highly enough if you're looking for grey washed jeans. The cotton is strokey soft with an ever so slight sheen. Not the best photo ever but here are mine worn with a Next pink striped knit and nude jacket from Wallis. Trying to extract the very last ounce of this fantastic weather although I fear it will be woollies and brollies come next week.
Not making a habit of visiting Tesco very often, I've been online to see what other jeans there are...for research purposes only you understand.
The same jeans as mine but in a mid wash
Mid Wash Luxe Sateen Super Skinny Jeans
They also have a range of jeans for the curvier ladies and I was particularly pleased to see the grey ones in larger sizes here.
These next pair are described as pink wash???? They look more burgundy to me. Priced at £18, I'm not going to argue with a colour description. They also come in black which do look black! I do like a higher waist although I'm not sure the zips work quite as well as on low rise.
Zip Detail Premium Twill Skinny Jeans
This pair caught my eye, there's a subtle-ish animal print going on which immediately throws them into going out territory for me. Fling on a little top and heels and you're ready to go. Slightly more expensive(!) at £22. Again they look slightly higher in the waist which is great for holding it all in.

And in grey, these would take you all the way through the summer too. Very tempted!

Look, I know F&F isn't for everyone but honestly the jeans I bought are amazing. I'm a convert. Go bag yourself a bargain, they're selling out fast.
Have you bought anything from
Ok, so I'm sat here in the dark praying that the Halloween mobsters miss us out. I can hear them screaming nearby as I type! You see I don't really get Halloween. We always seem to be net-down on treats at the end of the evening. My kids when they were little came back with some, we gave out far more and one year, I had to recycle their sweetie collection because we had so many callers. I'm not doing it this year!!!!!
Do you think this note might scare them off?
