shoulderless and stripe

11:00 am

Off the shoulder tops are everywhere, aren't they? As much as I love them, I was quite scared of them for a while, as I burn ridiculously easily in the summer and thought it was a recipe for disaster. But as I was getting ready to go out for tea with my friends, I caved. I rummaged through my wardrobe to find this old top which probably cost me about £1.50 and with my mum's help, snipped off the shoulders and gave it a quick sew. Not bad for £1.50, eh?
