DIY: Vintage Dress to Skater Skirt Co-Ord

I was at the East End Thrift Stores £1 sale not too long ago and found this dress in amongst piles of clothing. I loved the print but was pretty disappointed by the shape and size, it was more like a sack and was about a size 16. I got it anyway with this DIY in mind. I turned it into a skater skirt and top, to wear separately or together.

You Will Need:

1 oversized dress
measuring tape
needle and thread or a sewing machine
elastic (waist width)

Speckled Tights and a Floppy Hat

Hat - Topshop
Coat - Charity Shop
Jumper - Primark
Skirt - Lazy Oaf
Tights c/o UK Tights
Shoes - Dr Marten

Well hello speckles. I have fallen in love with a pair of tights. UK Tights told me I could choose a pair to feature in an outfit post, I spotted these babies online and almost died - I do love a good pair of patterned tights or socks! I love these, they are bold but still quite subtle with their pattern and can I just point out that I managed to put on a sheer pair of tights without a ladder or poking a hole through them - can I get a hallelujah!

Wardrobe Essentials

Coat - River Island
Scarf - Old + Unknown
Shirt - MinkPink
Jeans - Topshop
Boots - TKMaxx

Sometimes I like to dress all fancy, sometimes I love to clash textures but sometimes I need to rock a basic jeans and a shirt combo. These are some of my ultimate favourites items of clothing that I own, and together they produce the comfiest and most simple outfit ever. 

Scarves are only essential in the colder months I guess, but a statement scarf can transform a look completely.

An oversized shirt, in my opinion, is something every girls needs in her wardrobe. Button it up and pair with jeans for a basic outfit, tuck it into a high waist for something feminine or leave it undone over a dress for a summer kimono feel.

Of course jeans should be a basic in anyones wardobe, even if you are not in love with them, there is a jean out there for everyone! I love super skinny high waist jeans and oversized 'mom' jeans the most. Pair them with a shirt or jumper and you have the comfort of pyjamas or pair them with a cropped vest and heels and you are ready for a night with the girls.

A flat shoe - this could be a pair of loafers, boots or trainers depending on your style but a good pair of flats are, I think, neccessary in every wardrobe.

What are your wardrobe essentials?
