Shirt- Good Sammy's / Skirt- Paper Scissors / Boots- Doc Martens / Necklace- ASOS


Hello hello! Back at it with another fashion post. I got this very loud, very colourful Hawaiian shirt from the op shop a while ago, and it's become a staple in my wardrobe ever since. I can totally imagine a grandma wearing it in the 80s! Anyone who knows me in real life will probably have noticed I wear a lot of very colourful clothes, so this is right up my alley.

In other news, a few weeks ago I started back at uni for the year. I'm in my third year now, which is a weird and kind of crazy realisation. I'm taking some really interesting classes this semester so I'm actually pretty happy to be back in the swing of things uni-wise after such a long summer break.

How's your semester going? Much love! x

A few Vietnam snaps

Thursday, 9 March 2017

A collection of photos from my recent trip to Vietnam. We travelled all around the country, but the majority of these photos were taken in Sapa, Halong Bay and Hué. Such a beautiful, beautiful country that is well worth a visit! Enjoy! x






 


DIY Fringed Hem Jeans

Monday, 27 February 2017


Up until very recently, you could never find me in anything other than skinny jeans during the winter. It's only been in the last few months that I've grown to love wide leg, flared and printed jeans that I would have had no idea how to style a year ago! 

These jeans were actually a hand-me-down from a family friend. When I got them, they were bootlegs that were much to long for me. They've been sitting in my wardrobe for a good 6 months until yesterday, when I decided to cut them up and DIY the heck out of them. This is the result! They turned out much better than expected and I'm absolutely in love with the look of the fringed hem- these will definitely be my go-to jeans this winter. 

What you need
Literally all you need for this DIY is an old pair of jeans and a seam ripper or unpicker.




Method

1// Cut the jeans to your desired length. I chose to cut mine so that they were slightly cropped.
2// Use your seam ripper to unpick about 3 cm of stitches on the vertical seams on both sides of the legs. Remove all the threads from the seams.
3// Now to start fringing! You should see that there are a few threads starting to come loose from where you cut your jeans. Pull these out to start the fringing process.
4// Use your seam ripper to unpick the threads running horizontally. It's easiest if you turn your jeans inside out so you can see the threads more easily.

5// Continue pulling out all of the horizontal threads until the fringe is length that you would like.
6// Wash and dry your jeans as usual. And voila! You're done!

 Hope you enjoyed this little DIY! Much love x
