Went out Friday for goodbye drinks for a colleague then Saturday was at my best friends cousins wedding then Sunday watched my uncle and 6,000 other cyclists complete the tour of Cambridge cycle ride an 80mile bike ride!! I got sunburnt so been recovering from that had a bad reaction to something meaning my eyes puffed up we’re short staffed at work and to top all that off I have a poorly big toe 😦 But fear not I’m still smiling and here’s my 6day roundup of what I’ve been wearing for this challenge 🙂 x
Day 26 This is my go to skirt because I love the print on it!! Now if your being picky I’m technically not mixing prints as they are both floral but come on cut me some slack!!
Top Soul cal
So I reinvented my denim and then added denim thus reinventing my denim on denim 🙂 this shirt was originally a dress from primark but I felt it was too short so I lopped off some length on the bottom hemmed it and added a pocket 🙂
I brought this dress on my travels in Texas last year its a vans dress and I love the tie dye effect at the bottom&the detailing at the top of the dress 🙂
I love dressing up distressed denim jeans it gives them a whole new twist 🙂
