dressing up a sweatshirt


sweatshirt: george (10 dollars and I cut the collar) // skirt: h&m (similar here) // tights: joe fresh // shoes: jeffrey campbell // necklace: zara // watch: michael kors // bracelet: urban outfitters 

 A few weeks back I was bored on a weekend here in this tiny town and I thought I should spend some unnecessary money on toiletries and so on at Walmart (cringe I'm not a fan of that place) and walked right by this sweater that was on sale for 10 dollars. I started thinking how I've seen so many cute outfits on Pinterest with a basic sweatshirt and decided to bring it home with me. I  cut the collar off to make it a little more stylish and I think it turned out well! I'm thinking of doing another DIY on another sweatshirt with some kind of print or word/phrase on it. I LOVE this one of course.

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

  1. I love this look, the leather skirt totally dresses up the sweater. I love that you cut the collar off, I love the way sweaters fit when you cut the collar off. Those boots are amazing by the way!
