I'm not gonna lie, I was thoroughly enjoying myself in Hoi An. It was a little bubble of calm, of leisurely seaside days, spring rolls and coconuts, old towns and colourful lanterns.
Then we hopped up to Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, and were instantly snapped out of that little bubble. We were back in the midst of constant car honking and where it was perfectly fine to drive against the flow of traffic. Moving around in a city like this called for comfort and practicality, and a slouchy jumper, jeans and flat boots was probably a no-brainer ensemble.
But let me talk about these jeans - they're blue. The last time I wore blue jeans was actually in the year 2006, before jeans were phased out altogether in my wardrobe vocabulary. Floral and coloured assortments (slowly) drew me back into the world of jeans last year, and I am now in love with these vibrant blue, high-waisted ones by Blank. I truly have a newfound appreciation for their comfort and versatility once you find one that really fits like a glove and am already on the lookout for more to join the family!
So thanks, Blank.
