Turning a Dress Into a Shirt

I bought this dress quite a while ago and loved the denim button up style, but it was extremely short so I hardly wore it. The other day I was cleaning out my wardrobe (more on this later) and decided to turn it into an actual shirt. I just chopped off some of the bottom, and I have been wearing it heaps ever since. So if there's a piece in your wardrobe that's being neglected maybe it just needs a little refashion or refresh for you to get some good wear out of it!

5 Reasons We Love Parka Jackets

Today's post is once again about my beloved parka jacket. To be honest I'm don't care if you're bored of this jacket, I love it so you are going to be seeing a lot more of it #outfitrepeater. So I thought I'd summarise all the reasons I love it, so you can fall in love too and join my parka jacket club.

1. It goes with everything 
This parka jacket has never met an outfit it doesn't like. 

2. It's warm 
We like to say that fashion is worth the discomfort, but who are we kidding, if its cold why wouldn't we want to wear a giant cosy blanket like jacket?

3. It cinches at the waist 
It's hard to find padded jackets that are flattering, but parka jackets like this nip in at just the right place.

4. It has big pockets 
As simple as it sounds, clothes with pockets just make everything better. I can even fit my giant phablet aka the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

5. It's fluffy 
Enough said.
