Dustland Fairytale

Bag - Topshop
Shoes - DIY (see here)
Jacket - Topshop
Shorts - Topshop
Crop top - Topshop
Bracelet - Miss Selfridge 
Studded friendship bracelet - DIY

This outfit is probably my favourite at the moment - I would wear it every day if that didn't make me look like a weirdo...recently I've been loving crop tops with highwaisted shorts and I'd really like to get a highwaisted skater skirt to throw into the mix. I'm slightly ashamed at the amount of Topshop here but ah well, it's my favourite shop and I'm so happy I got my backpack! It's so cute and will be really useful for flying to America in 3 weeks! Eeek so excited :3
I made my friendship bracelet last night (I used the diamond pattern in this tutorial), I chose to use pale yellow, lilac, pink and light blue and added some studs - I absolutely love it! I'm tempted to make more and stack them for summer.
Oo and I'm torn, should I stud the shoulders of this denim jacket or leave it alone? I think it'd look awesome studded but would it make it less wearable and more likely to go out of fashion? Hmmm let me know in the comments which I should choose!

I hope you're all having a wonderful week!

Don't forget to spread the loveliness!

  6. Love your outfit- the shoes are AMAZING!:) XX

  7. Your shoes are amazing! That's so clever that you DIY'ed them, they're so pretty. I think you can stud the jacket, I don't think studs really go out of fashion xxx

  8. I still think your shoes are SO amazing! Love crop tops with high waisted things :) x

  9. Such a great outfit! I can see why you want to wear it everyday :) also amazed that you did that effect yourself to your shoes- they are great and really unique! Have a lovely weekend xx

  10. I adore your shoes and I would love to do a pair myself, though I doubt they'd ever be quite as amazing as yours! I've seen that backpack in Topshop before and I love it, but I don't know how durable their backpacks are and whether it would be worth it. Definitely stud the denim jacket - it would look great! In my opinion, even if it does go out of fashion, as long as you like it, that's all that really matters. xx

  11. Oh wow, I am such a huge fan of your backpack!
