Ripped Jeans & Birkenstocks

It has been mega long since I blogged because back in July I was burgled and my laptop was stolen, woo! All my pictures from the last couple of years were on there and, like an idiot, I had never gotten round to backing them up on Dropbox (do it, people!) As you can imagine I was pretty gutted and it meant finding the money for a replacement laptop as well, hence the huge blogging gap. Anyway, I am back now so you can call of the search, heh heh.

Despite not having blogged in two months, I'm still heavily into monochrome style, particularly when it involves ripped jeans. I bought about a thousand pairs of ripped jeans from ASOS but couldn't find any that fit right, so I decided to rip some old Primark skinnies instead. You know how it is, skinny jeans from Primark gradually get a little loose, especially round the knees so it just made good sense.

I've also jumped on the Birkenstock bandwagon in the last month. I was sold on the comfort-factor everyone bangs on about as I'm off to Greece in a couple of weeks and wanted a pair of sandals that won't leave my feet hurting. They are pretty ugly and I have to be careful what I wear them with to avoid looking like a German granny but overall, I'm pleased with them.

Fedora - Peacocks
Oversized T-Shirt - ASOS
Ripped Jeans - Primark (DIY)
Birkenstock Arizona - Zalando
Turquoise Necklace - Turkish Market
Gold Casio Watch - Gift
Boxy Bag - H&M
