My friends from ‘Style Not Age’ and I are bringing you denim this month.  We decided we need to bring you some normality.

In Ireland, Graham and I have been in self-isolation for two weeks. We have seen our family from a distance. More restriction came in two days ago and now we can only walk within two kilometres of our home. We can shop for food and medicines. These are scary times, but we will get through this. We will get through it, if we all do what we are asked.

Unlike our brave men and women looking after the sick and in essential services, I am not asked to do anything except stay at home. I can do that.

When it comes to denim I mostly stick to jeans.  It is always about fit and I find Zara high-waisted skinny jeans fit me very well and they appear every year in the store. In the next two photos below you can see the same pair worn in different ways. I am shopping my wardrobe for everything.

The Diesel pair below are 13 years old and my daughter brought them back from Miami for me. They are well worn and extremely comfortable. The shirt is a few years old from The Bias Cut, a beautifully curated online company. You may remember Gail and I did a photo shoot with them a few years ago. And Emma modelled for their catalogue last year.

And how did my friends from ‘Style Not Age’ get on?

Gail (who picked this month’s theme) looks amazing in her new denim dress. And what about those pink accessories? Pop over to isthismutton to learn more

Anna, who is isolating on The Scilly Isles where she lives, is cutting a dash in her ensemble. You can find out more at annasislandstyle.

Jacqui, who blogs under mummabstylish, has donned a new boiler suit and looks ready to take on the world.

Emma wears a versatile denim jacket with bright pink and animal print accessories to brighten up your day. Check out her blog at thestylesplash

Stay safe my friends in these strange times. If you are like me, you are in leggings and comfy tops every day. But we will get back to normality, we will put on our denim jeans, (hopefully they will still fit me) again. We will hug our family, meet friends for coffee, eat out in restauarants.  We will be ok.
