Cut Out Boots





Midi Skirt - Primark
Tartan Shirt - Primark
Mesh Crop Top - ASOS (similar here)
ADONIS Cut Out Boots - Topshop via Next2Nowt
Spike Necklace - DIY
Rings & Cross Bracelet - Fashionology
Cuff Bangle - H&M

Every so often I throw on a grunge-rock inspired outfit and feel completely comfortable in it. Darker colours are my go-to items and for me - leaving my comfort zone is exploring pastels and prints. Which I plan to do this S/S because what is life without challenge. I'm actually keen to start mixing my prints too. 
These Adonis cut out Topshop boots in Oxblood were an absolute bargain - I found them on Next2Nowt for £35 second hand, where as you'd pay £75 in store for the same ones. (still online here.) And it was free delivery. I also bought the same ones in black which have now sold out online but I will be selling those (so if you're interested tweet me or email me -Size 7.)

I've been shortlisted for a Company Style Blog Award!! It's crazy and I'm so grateful to anyone who nominated me, it's such an achievement to just be shortlisted. I've been put under the 'Best Crafting Blog' category which is pretty cool as I've been working really hard on my DIY Fridays recently. I see my blog as a 'style blog' with lots of aspects of fashion thrown in, including crafting and do-it-yourself bits. I tend to produce designer or high street inspired items for much much less. So if you're a fan of my DIY Friday's I would love for you to vote for me to win! You can vote here, and see all the other wonderful blogs that have been shortlisted. I've already been through each page and voted for my favourite blogs. Make sure you go through each step and click the submit button at the end for your vote to count. 

It's been the best couple of weeks, and it was the cherry on top!
