OOTD // I'VE GOT SOUL BUT I'M NOT A SOLDIER


 


beanie - present // crop top - DIY // skirt - handmade // leather waistcoat - vintage // army jacket - vintage // Doc Martens - eBay


001 // Just a quick little outfit post for this weekend, I wore this to a casual dinner out with the family and got a few weird looks... the locals obviously aren't into the military trend like I am!
 
002 // I cropped a long sleeved black t-shirt to make this crop top and made this skirt myself a few years ago. The waistcoat and jacket were both presents from fellow vintage lovers and friends of mine for my last birthday... oh how I've trained them well ;) i bought my Doc Martens from a boutique on eBay for £60 which I personally think is a good saving for DM's!
 
003 // And finally I thought I would show off my new babies! My prescription Gok Wan glasses!! I got them on 2 for one the other day at the opticians and I just can't take them off! They make me feel fairly quirky and they have a certain Deirdre Barlow feel to them AND I LOVE THEM! Oh and sorry for the floral headband, I was playing around with photoshop...
 
004 // I have mock exams for the next 2 weeks so posts may be a bit scarce but I will try and keep on top on things. I promise to stick to this new blog :)
