On Saturday

I wore this outfit on Saturday for Tramlines in Sheffield, it was a wonderful afternoon and evening spent in the beautiful city. The weather had been so immensely warm all week long prior I took a gamble and decided to wear this. If only the sun had shone a little brighter I wouldn’t have been so chilly by 9pm, but we live to tell the tale...
 Zara Top via Car Boot 50p, Denim Shorts via Car Boot £1, Wedges from Store Twenty-One on clearance in April this year £2.
I never thought I would see the day that I would be able to wear denim ‘shorts’ – I always hid my legs before I lost weight,  and with good reason. I’m a little bit in love with this embroidered butterfly pair from the car boot. 
The top was another car boot gem – I found it mid-morning heaped on a chair, the seller asked 50p for any clothing she’d got on the pile. I spied a Zara label and knew it was guaranteed to be something a little special! The silk material is amazing, and although a little delicate (to iron at least) I just love the print. 
 I wasn’t even sure how I was going to wear/style it, but I think the gamble paid off. I got lots of compliments that day!

  6. Ah, it wasn't the best on Saturday was it? It seemed very gloomy all day. I only popped up to the shops for a little while and didn't see any of the bands although I noticed there was a charge this year. Anyway, I love your cute denim shorts Alice! xxx
