what I wore today: heart, button, check.


I'm broke.

I checked my bank account yesterday and to my horror discovered I must have had a shopping blackout earlier this month (don't remember those trips to topshop..)

since I'm now on a super strict budget I've been raiding my wardrobe to up cycle some old outfits! I nearly brought a sleeveless checked shirt last week so I dug out an old shirt and cut the sleeves off myself, voila new topshop inspired shirt! 

I love to mix prints so I paired it with my primark heart print skirt and metallic pumps.

on a DIY theme I also wore my button bag that I covered myself last year! it look an afternoon but was well worth the effort to stitch them all on! 


skirt and pumps: primark
bag and shirt: DIY
flower bead bracelet: asos
yellow leather studded bracelet and rubber pink bracelet: topshop
rainbow chain (sold by the meter): hobbycraft
watch and vintage bangle: urban outfitters

so have you got anything in your wardrobe worth recycling? if you don't wear it any more you've got nothing to lose (well apart from a pair of sleeves!)
