The time has come to sing the praises of combat jeans - my new signature look. 😍

It's the new year and if you are like me, you have already started to plan and look forward to the end of winter and what 2018 may bring. Not to mention that, like me, many of you will be starting to get royally bored with wearing winter gear and are ready for somethin...
