Sun in the sky, you know how I feel.

So yesturday the weather was all lovely today, so the 3 of us and a friend spent all day in my garden bein lazy, only moving to get an ice pop! I found this skirt a bit ago that I havent worn for years and we decided then that we were going to do a little bit of D.I.Y on it and make it wearable once more! It is orginally from River Island and was just plain white, so naturally I wanted colour! After finding I had no useable paintbrushes we decided to use bits of plastic bags screwed up and dipped in paint, and this was the end result! Pretty cool, even if I do say so myself! (sorry about the pictures I am still cameraless!)










We also hand printed a white T-shirt that Pammy had and had wanted to do something with, it was also a success and looks like something you could get from Zara. I'm sure she will post a picture of it at a later date.
On another note, the last time I went shopping was a while ago but I need manage to find a couple of bargains, even though I shouldn't really of got them I did! The first dress is from H&M sale, reduced from £30 to £5 which is always nice! The second is from Zara.

I finally got to wear my playsuit! To a field. Not the best place to wear it but I could not be bothered to wait for a good enough occassion to wear it, and it was perfect for the weather!

I feel like it's the summer holidays, but unfortunatly it is not and on monday we have to go back to college for 5 weeks, which is terrible and pointless in my eyes!x

Nice DIY project, I've been meaning to do some stuff with paint but it wouldn't have turned out as good as your's.

Oh my goodness. You are awesome. I once got into a diy phase, but all the fabric is still under my bed. I love the yellow in the last pic too.

Your saying that does the exact opposite of freaking me out. I love when people love what I love. Especially when I love what they love.

I love the yellow dress. I would love to wear yellow, but I am so deathly pale it makes me appear jaundiced.
