DIY BRANDY MELVILLE CHIYO BRALETTE

DIY Brandy Melville Chiyo Bralette

Hello and welcome to my blog!

So summer is coming up and the wetaher is getting super warm outside, so obviously those crop tops and racer-back tops are making their way out of the closet. Brandy Melville sell a really cute bralette, the Chiyo Bralette, for $19, so I thought I would make one myself, for as little as $5!!!

What you will need:

a brallete (from primark)
black thread
a needle
scissors
and some elastic

So let’s get started.

Start by cutting off the back of your brallete.
Cut as close to the seam as possible for a cleaner finish.

Then, measuring the elastic around your back, cut the elastic into strips.

I decided to cut three, rather than the original six, I just prefered the look of it. You can obviously do as many as you like.

Then just sow your strips of elastic across the back.

Once you have done that, you can cut two smaller sized elastic strips to be sewn on vertically.

If you want you could add some straps over the shoulders, but I prefered the strapless look.

And it’s so simple!! Now you can wear your super cheap and totally cute bralette!!

Autumn is finally coming to end, with Christmas lights and decorations going up and the weather getting considerably colder, I thought I’d wear a lovely green dress one more time…

“What I like most about black and white photographs, is that they are more like reading the book than watching the movie.”

It was surprisingly warm today for late September… which meant i didn’t have to add lots of layers while going out for dinner. Just trying to cling on to that teenie tiny bit of summer for as long as I can… but not for long..

Anyway, the colours, or rather colour, because this outfit consist of mainly black, is still Autumn-ish because of the darkness of the look.

The black crop top that I wore is from H&M, which is just a great store for buying your everyday basics.

My cute shorts with white hearts printed all over is from Penneys or Primark, which ever you would like to call it.

My black heels are also from Penneys and my hat, which I have been loving, is from H&M.

I guess there’s sort of a pattern there.. sorry

To add a pop of colour, I wore a matte pink lipstick from the Kate Moss for Rimmel London collection, and topped that off with the Ted Baker lipgloss in Fabulous Foxtrot. I have a mini version, which is perfect for poppin gin the bag for on the go.

I kept the jewelry simply by just wearing a gold necklace that I purchased from AWaer.

OOTD: Daisy Lovin’

I only recently uploaded and OOTD that featured daisies, and well today, this outfit may include some daisies too. Basically, I’m obsessed. Daisies are my life right now. I walked into a shop one day and decided then and there that my already full wardrobe needed daisy shorts, daisy print shoes, daisy flower crowns, daisy kimonos and well… All else daisy printed. Too much now? NEVER! In the future? Most probably yes. But hey, at least I’m getting good wear out of them now…

And to top all this daisy goodness off, just a few spritzes of Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume, because well it’s kinda appropriate at this present moment.

I’m really loving pairing simple denim shorts with cute tops and converse. It’s cute and comfortable and you just don’t need to worry about anything.

“Paris is always a good idea.” – Audrey Hepburn

Stripes are super simple, yet super elegant and chic looking. Paired with a polka dot print headband, a black statement necklace, skater skirt and black high tops, we have the perfect comfy chic outfit. I adore converse and think everyone should have a pair in their wardrobe.. They just go with everything and do a fine job of making any look more casual and daytime appropriate.

So Kimye recently got married in France and now they are on their honeymoon in Ireland. So what outfit is more French meets Irish than stripes and converse? This one!! Well, ok maybe this isn’t the first one that would pop into your mind but… I thought this was cute. Plus, it kinda makes me feel like I’m in Paris, walking down a Boulevard holding a croissant in one hand and using the others to push down my sunglasses so I can admire all the cute boys.. *ahem*

Anyhoo, this outfit is just super simple but makes you feel completely put together and ready to face the day with a bright smile and positive attitude!
