DIY: Denim & Pearls

I’m back with another little DIY post for you all. As you can tell, I’m a bit obsessed with all things DIY at the moment. This is just a very small little project I did a while ago with a denim shirt which I had never worn before because it was always too big -I think my sister got it on sale ages ago in Penneys/Primark. I just cut the shirt up a little bit and added the cutest little pearls which I got in a craft shop, randomly enough, while on the trip to Connemara. The other piece I added in the middle was just from a broken necklace which was beyond repair so I figured it would add a nice little finishing touch.

As I said, I did this quiet a a while ago & I really wanted to show you earlier than this but I just couldn’t find the “right” thing to wear with it. I’ll fully admit that I’m the biggest perfectionist you’ll ever come across…but I guess that’s not a bad thing (most of the time anyway). So I went around to all the shops in Galway this week looking for a nice jumper to wear over it -I love the baggy jumper & collar look at the moment- & was so delighted when I found his cute little on-trend pastel pink jumper in one of the local charity shops for a grand total of 3 euro !! Deeeee-lighted :)

I know it’s a tad bit “granny”, but do you know what, grannies these days are very well-dressed so I LOVE it ! I went out to Salthill in Galway today with my boyfriend & took a few snaps on the beach. It was so so cold but really great to get a bit of fresh air. It’s been such a lovely Sunday. Hope you all like it :)

Enjoy the rest of your day !

Stylishly yours,

    Love this. I tried my hand at some DIY before and made a pearl embellished collar, wasn’t half as effective as this though.
    Keep it up girlie, and I’m so jealous of you going to New York, you’re going to have such a good summer. I did the America thing last summer and it was just such an experience!
