DIY shirt skirt & mint

Jumper - H&M, Sunglasses - Primark, Bag - c/o La Moda, Shirt Skirt - Primark, Sandals - Dorothy Perkins
Lippy - MAC Honey Love

As the summer heat is dwindling, I’m starting to bring out all my light knitwear. Y’know, something not too heavy that’s going to save you from looking like a plucked chicken. I will definitely be fitting in a few more BBQ’s (rain or shine!), but there’s no way I’m going to be freezing my bits off braving it in a crop top. This loose fitted mint jumper is one that has been dearly loved. It’s surprising how much mint goes with! I’ve even worn it with a pastel pink floral dress.. I promise it wasn’t quite as tragic as it sounds!

My skirt is another ‘DIY’ jobby. There are inverted commas as I am in no way suggesting that tying a shirt around your waist is the customisation of the century. However, it does give my old Primark shirt a new lease of life! It's always nice to put a neglected piece in your wardrobe to use.. even if it's not in the traditional way. 

Voting ends really soon so if you would like to vote for me to win Cosmo's 'Best New Fashion Blog' then I'd be the happiest girl in the world! Much love. <3
