Sea Shells


Sea Shell Shirt - Charity Shop
Ripped Jeans - Primark
Boots - Dr Martens

And the award to the cutest shirt goes to... 
It was rather on the expensive side for a charity shop buy, £6.95 to be in fact.  You know when you see something you really like, don't buy it, then have constant obsessive thoughts until you finally cave and have to go pick it up - that's what would have happened if I didn't buy this shirt.  It's got such a unique sea shell print, and it's the perfect shade of bright pink.  I can't wait to style it up as a shirt dress, but I thought I would go super casj with ripped jeans today.

Speaking of ripped jeans, I actually cut the holes in these myself.  I just can't justify spending £40 on a pair of Topshop ones, when I can do it myself for a fraction of the price. I've mentioned this on my blog so many times before, but I think the quality of Topshop clothes is so bad for the price they are sold, and these Primark jeans are actually just as good as the ones in Topshop.  They aren't made from that horrible stretchy denim that gets all misshaped after one wear.  Bonus that they are super high waisted as well!

  8. Such a cute shirt - definitely worth the £6.95 price tag! I totally agree that Topshop jeans are not worth their price, they never last more than a few months before wearing through or fading xx

  30. Love the top! I think the same about buying jeans already ripped but I'm too nervous to try and rip them myself so I just suck it up and buy them. You've done a fab job DIYing these ones! I'm impressed xx

  32. When I try and rip jeans myself it never looks as good as ones that are already ripped so I always end up buying topshop ones but you've done a pretty good job with your jeans I've got to say!
