Bleached Out

Denim Shirt - DIY
Navy Dress - H&M
Sandals - H&M
Gemstone Necklace -

(These outfit photos were taken last week when the weather here in the UK actually was warmer!)
The title of this post refers to my shirt and my legs. I was obviously not prepared for a blast of warm sun. But whatever, I'm rocking the pale look. I'm in love with my new hand-bleached shirt! You can see my DIY tutorial here if you haven't already. I think its the perfect item to throw on over a dress especially in the British weather. I picked up these sandals in the H&M sale (online) and they are super comfy. They quack like ducks whenever I walk but I don't care, they are the perfect simplistic sandal.
I wouldn't normally pair brown with navy, it's like pairing black and navy, but I think it works ok - anything goes when the suns out!

This gemstone necklace is from - my new favourite jewellery store. It's listed as Opalite/Moonstone and as Opal is my birth stone I thought I should go for this one. Plus I liked the colour and the way it catches in the light. It was so cheap at just £5 but great quality, it reminds me of the fashionology ones.  

I've been embracing my hippy as I've had a very crafty sort of day. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you may have seen what me and Alison got up to this afternoon. (I'm considering making a DIY tutorial on how we made them!) We pottered down to our local 'we-sell-everything' sort of store and spent a while oohing and ahhing over the craft items like we were 11 but picked up a few things for a great price.
Uni students with a huge summer holiday have to do something to keep busy!
