OOTD: Summer grunge

Dress: Handmade, Boots: Matalan? Shirt: New look, Necklace: Miss Selfridge, Bag: Cynthia Rowley, Watch: Ali express, Bralet: H&M

I have never been good at sewing, maybe it's because I always attempt something ridiculously complicated *throwback to the 3D structured telephone bag which now lies half stitched in my wardrobe* However, I had been looking for a casual summer dress for hot days so I decided to attack a Primark maxi skirt with a pair of nail scissors and ended up with this dress which I knotted at the back. Whilst my sewing is very amateur I feel like the rough edges work well over this caged back bralet from H&M and give the look a grunge feel.

The Miss Selfridge chain collar was overdue for a rotation in the cycle of statement necklaces adds bit of drama. I tied a shirt round my waist because you never know what the weather will do!
Finally I resurrected these extremely battered boots from Matalan which have practically no soles left and plenty of holes but they are the comfiest shoes I own so worth looking rocking the whole homeless-chic look for.

I have seen a lot of blogger bucket lists of action packed summers, yet in all honestly my greatest achievement has been mastering the Sims 2 open for business expansion pack and finishing The killing series four in 48 hours... I love doing nothing :)

Hope you're enjoying a relaxed summer x
