Daisy Street

Blazer- H&M// Shirt- Select// Jumpsuit- Daisy Street via Asos// Shoes- Asos// Necklace- Shop Dixi// Bag- Charity Shop

Happy Maundy Thursday! Stopped over at Cowbridge to attend church and managed to squeeze in a few snaps just before the service began. Taking full advantage of the generous extra 15% off sale items that asos were offering just last week, I decided to really step out of my comfort zone and purchase the most loveliest jumpsuit that I have seen in a while. Now, being 5"2 and having disproportioned limbs, I do often find it a mission to buy full sleeved tops and trousers where cutting a few inches off isn't a requirement. Well, Praise the Lord on Holy Week for this jumpsuit fits like a glove.

What are your plans for Easter and the weekend? Mine? I plan to eat myself into a chocolate coma.

Feeling Creative

Hello everyone. I hope you had a great weekend and you're enjoying this glorious weather that we've been blessed with. Today's post is a little different to my usual outfit post and monthly favourites (still need to get my February and March post up- oops).

I'm going to show you how to transform your old, lifeless shirts into a cute and on trend cropped top. So here we go :) 

You will need:
-Old Shirt (Charity Shops have some fantastic ones)
-Fabric Scissors
-Sewing Machine

I picked up this pink Gap shirt from a charity shop just for a pound because I absolutely fell in love with the colour. To be honest, if it had been in my size then I probably would have left it alone but as it looked so out of proportion when I wore it, I've decided to do this mini tutorial to show you just how easy it is to create your own.

1) I began by using a chalk to subtly mark out just how cropped I wanted the top to be. Note: Make sure you leave seam allowance and make leave it 2 inches longer than you want it to as it'll help you to sew with ease later.

2) I turned the shirt inside out and started to use pins to fold up the seams on the bottom and on the sleeves.
3) Start sewing carefully, making sure that you remove each pin as you go along.
4) Here you go. :)  You're super easy and cute cropped top is finished. (Note to self: using an iron won't hurt).


I hope that this post helped you and inspired you to create and rework into the clothes that you already have. I do apologise if I wasn't clear enough on some steps, don't hesitate to let me know if you'd like me to go over anything in detail. 

Have you made/designed anything recently? :)

Top and Belt- New Look// Jeans- River Island// Bag- H&M// Shoes- Asos

Finally, after years and years of vigorously searching for the perfect pair of jeans, I have found them and they actually fit me. I mean, I don't even have to fold them up or anything AND they're high waisted. To say that I was over the moon when I snapped these up in River Island would be an understatement. (My fellow short limbed girls will know what I mean).

What types of jeans do you wear the most? Is there a particular style that you lean towards the most?

Moving on, I found these gorgeous Menace T-bar flats in the Asos sale for just £16 plus a further cheeky 10% off (thanks, Asos) and I already know just how much I'll be wearing them through Spring into Summer. So excited! Oh, and of course I threw on my beloved striped top to really complete the casual look.
