Nisolo Reina High Top Sneakers Bone & Babba Cardigan 19 Mist by Conscious by Chloé

After a week of summer weather we are back to cold(er) rainy days and I'm not too mad about it because we don't have A/C and I am not ready to sweat all day.

I stored my winter sweaters a little too soon but luckily they're still within reach in a box under my bed.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen how I've taken in the waist of these jeans I got second hand on Vinted while I was in France. The alteration is super easy, all you need is a pair of scissors, some elastic band, thread and a needle.

I ended up threading the elastic around most of the waistband (rather than only in the back as it is shown in most tutorials - see Method 3 here) and I'm really happy about the result.

Now I can properly tuck my tops into my jeans!

Am I too old for cropped jeans?
