Annebeth 's thoughts:

Yesterday the temperatures finally dropped enough to allow me to wear sleeves. Which was nice, as after a while you run out of sleeveless things to wear. I made this crop top myself! Well, I made that sound way more awesome than it actually is: I just bought a stripy T and cut off the bottom half. I suddenly realized that I have loads of high waisted things that would look awesome with a crop top, but you can’t find that many crop tops in stores. And the jersey that T-shirts and tanktops are made of doesn’t fray when you cut it without stitching it back up, so easiest DIY ever. Just make sure you cut it a tiny bit longer than where you’d want it to sit, as the ends curl up a bit.
I wore my crop top with this slinky skirt. This is seriously the most comfortable skirt in the world. Very stretchy and soft. But so figure hugging! I didn’t feel comfortable walking outside in this outfit without a jacket. I mean, there’s legs, there’s ass, there’s a bit of midrif. Too much? I think it’s hot, but in a fun way. But I would feel way self conscious wearing this to just go grocery shopping or something. Would you wear this out? Would you change something?

I tried the typical Alexa Chung winged eyeliner look today as I already kind of have her haircut, and I was quite pleased with the result! If you keep the line thin, the look is very subtle but still unique.

Oh, and I added a picture of my newspaper feature! Kind of silly, but cool nonetheless!

and now for the non-fashion bit: there has been a carnival opposite our door for about a week now, and yesterday was the last day, concluded with fireworks in honor of the Belgian national holiday. It was very beautiful and at my blog you will be able to peep some pictures that I made of those fireworks! But my cat hates fireworks and was terrified to the extent that she peed all over my underwear and bikini drawer. Yep, that’s what pets are for. I just spent an hour handwashing everything and now I have a full rack of wet unmentionables hanging outside. Stupid cat. On a positive note: at least now I realize how many pairs of knickers I actually have!

i think i might try that DIY thing with the t-shirt, i have one similar that i just don't wear when it's got long sleeves, so maybe when i has short ones...? love this, so cute and simple! i guess i'd just put flats instead of heels and a long knitted vest over the top to go out, it would make it a tad more casual. legs can show, you got gorgeous legs :) x
Annebeth
Annebeth on July 13
you can just cut off the sleeves too if you want too! I'm planning on doing DIYs on all my old tshirts, I don't wear em anyway :D thanks! I put on flat shoes too to go out, but it was wayyyy too hot for anything else to put over it :D

I loved both teams really and I thought the match wasn't that good because the game stopped every minute because somebody got a yellow card, but it was still exciting :) Oh well, better luck next time!
