Like a little School girl . .



This intentionally was going to be a post with the shorts I made yesterday, however, after even MORE charity shopping (someone please help me stop?) I found some ah-ma-zing things and after trying them on to show my sister I decided i'd much rather show you this outfit instead. Sorry. So, here you have it! My very much 'schoolgirl' inspired look. Although i may look quite childish, i feel the belt and (blazer, not shown here) made it look a bit more grown up and definately makes it something I would wear in the day! I've had yet another successful day charity shopping, and also found a polka dot blouse which would look equally as nice with this denim shirt/dress. The dress is actually a size 18 denim vest, but with a belt and sneaky tucking in of the shoulders (I'll sew them in later) it immediately looks like a little dress and cost a mere £3! The shirt is sooo pretty and i love the detailing on it! I'm not sure if you can see, but the buttons are actually sparkly! and for just £2.49 it's now probably my new favourite shirt. I'm sorry if you hate me wearing charity items, because i know its annoying seeing things you can't then go and buy yourself. BUT, although i love to know where things came from, i do think it is good to take inspiration from someones outfit and not just go and copy it yourself. There is things similar available on the high street, and, vintage stores and charity shops 9/10 times will sell something similar too. You've just got to make  sure you look girlies, and think of the potential of a piece, and not just what it is when you see it in the shop. I honestly don't think i would own half the things i do if i had bought them judging by the sight of them in the shop. Literally just by adding a belt, you can make a massive shirt that looks ugly in the shop, into a cute little dress that gives you shape :) Be creative girlies!! I'd also love to know/see any items you've styled from charity/vintage shops!

I hope you enjoyed this! Have a lovely Monday xxx

  1. Every time I go into town I think "oh I must pop into the charity shops" and always end up forgetting (perhaps because they're not on the main high street, I'm not sure), but I hear we have some brilliant ones in Leeds so I really have to! You've definitely got some good charity shops near you xx

  4. I adore this outfit, the denim vest looks amazing as a dress! I bought my first 'vintage' items this weekend, it's great to know that you won't spot someone walking down the street with the same clothes as you xx

  12. the outfit is lovely, good finds!
    i prefer looking through the rails of charity shops trying to find a gem, rather than walking in topshop and having it all laid out for me :)
