We Bleed Blue, I Also Bleed Black

Denim, it’s in our veins. That’s why we bleed blue. Even when we wear black.

I’ve had a very strange relationship with denim jeans. I loved it as a teen then started hating it about a few years ago. Clearly I missed the advancement in denim technology in between that time because denim is so comfortable now & the range at General Pants Co has gotten me right back into it. I remember jeans being really scratchy, hard, (very) low-waisted & really baggy. Now you can get jeans in just about any style you want & this black, high-waisted, destroyed pair is the exact thing I’ve been searching for. Stretchy enough to be comfortable but sturdy enough to hold me together, I’ve literally been living in this pair for the past three days while camping & they made the perfect leg covering for exploring the wild coast. A word of advice though: I don’t recommend waking your way through bushland in a ripped up anything. Unless you want to rip it more of course which in that case, power to you.

  • I love your outfit, the wripped skinny jeans and sunglasses go together really well – I wish we had beaches warm enough to not look like a frostflake. england is rubbish for beaches :’)great blog!

  • Haha, I feel the same about denim. I used to wear a lot of skinny jeans when I was a teenager. Now, I feel like cullotes are ok for now! You look great girl!

    I think I need to invest in a pair of high waisted jeans, I like the idea of it holding everything together haha.

    This post is so visually stunning babe! I love the fit of those distressed denim jeans and how you styled it so casually with the sweatshirt. I’m also eyeing those shades, I’m in love!

    Rina Samantha

  • These jeans fit like a glove! And you did such a great job with the photos babe. They turned out amazing!
    This is such a cute casual look. I use to hate denim too, because it was so hard to find jeans that fit right on my body. Now I have a couple a like, but I need to check General Pants for sure!
    Have a great weekend!

    These jeans fit like a glove babe and these photos are so so beautiful!

  • Such gorgeous photos! I wish I lived near the beach. So glad you found a pair of comfy jeans you love. I’m right there with you! I need softness and stretch or else I’m not wearing them.

  • It’s so lovely spending time at the beach. The imagery is so gorgeous in this post. I can relate with you on jeans. There was a point I hated denim, but now I’ve found some amazing and comfy brands which I wear religiously. Fit is everything with denim 🙂 You rock yours so well

  • I have been living in jeans for the past two years, it’s the easiest and most comfortable thing in my wardrobe. You look really lovely, simple but chic!

    • I can’t believe I’ve been missing out on how comfortable they’ve gotten & they’re also so much more flattering than a lot of other pants! x

  • Atsuna Matsui

    Looks like a beautiful day to be at the beach! The weather looks so great and I’m just loving the sunnies you’re rocking here. Too cute!


  • Kim

    What beautiful photos! I want your sunnies 🙂


  • Sweetheart, you look the comfiest in jeans and I realized like you too, that they make denim pretty soft these days, you forget about its earlier hard and unforgiving texture. I do love the jeans you’re wearing with the knee rips and that ‘Insight’ crop top is just super adorable on you. I love the setting of this shoot and you adventuring around and over the rocks. So much fun, with the wind in the hair. Oh and those sunnies, they’re just too pretty. I hope you’re having a brilliant Aussie Autumn there!! 😀 x

  • Great top. Love the mom jeans. I am always looking for a new pair – always a challenge finding the right fit for me. Such a pretty spot for photos. Have a great week!


  • Such stunning pictures, Shannon! Wish I could be there and watch this stunning view myself! And the distressed denims look so fab 🙂

  • This shoot is so wonderful! That’s the place to be right now! Love your outfit!

  • Wow, what a dream place! Amazing photos 🙂

  • They are awesome jeans and this is such a great spot for photos! 🙂

    When I was shopping for new denim last year I really wanted a pair like this, but couldn’t find any with the perfect distressing. IT’s not easy when you’re petite! I went with a plain black pair instead, but I’m not going to turn down the perfect distressed pair if I see them later once my no-shop is over! 🙂

    Hope you are having a great week 🙂

    • This is the only pair of Neuw denim I’ve worn but I’ve heard so many people rave about their comfort & this pair is seriously comfortable! Stretchy but not too stretchy that they don’t pull you together like a traditional pair of jeans. I did find the rips in annoying places for quitting though (if that’s something you do lots haha) even though I read on the GP site they were in good places?
