One item of clothing I wear again and again over on the ol’ Instagram is a pair of jeans. I rewear my jeans time and time again, more often than not with a charity shop top half. With Jeans for Genes day coming up this Friday I thought I would do a little round-up of some of my everyday denim looks over the past year.
Jeans for Genes day is an annual fundraising campaign for genetic disorders in the UK. It is estimated that genetic disorders affect 1 in 25 children and therefore 30,000 babies and children are newly diagnosed in the UK each year. Genetic disorders are the biggest killer of children aged 14 and under. By taking part in Jeans for Genes day, you can raise that bit of money which could make a massive difference. £350 pays for a child with a genetic disorder to spend a fun weekend away with trained staff and other children with genetic disorders. As well as donning your jeans there are other ideas on how to raise money on the Jeans for Genes website including my personal favourite of serving ‘Gene & Tonic’s’ once it hits 5.30pm.
With everyday jeans, the type you can throw on and head out the door jeans being available from many places including second-hand websites such as Oxfam, eBay and depop. You can find the perfect pair for you. If, after a number of times of wearing your jeans you get a little restless and fancy a denim update then I have posted about the easiest denim fashion DIY going which involves adding a few eyelets to the hem of your jeans (see the picture above in the bottom left hand corner). It takes ten minutes and instantly adds a lift to a once plain pair of jeans. A little fashion DIY of the easiest kind and one perfect when preparing for Jeans for Genes day this Friday.
