Chasing the river bank that has no returns

Diagonal crop top:DIY,cotton on tee
Inner top:can't remember,bought years ago
Leggings:Random store in town
Braided headband:Diva
Shoes:Doc Martens

I pulled out my crop top today and an old inner top !
And it turned out so well,color blocking you would say:)
I DIY my old tee into a diagonal crop top.
Got the lovely idea from Taghrid at AA's daily update here

It rained so heavily this morning.
And I knew my Doc Martens would always come in handy.
Keeps my feet warm and dry.I

I actually also shredded behind of the crop top.
But never got to finished the whole of it.
Guess it does look alright half finished too. heeeee

Thanks so much to everyone on the tips for my photos to be larger.
As you can see here,I've not tried it yet.
Will do so these few days.
Still have a list of things to complete off my list tonight.

I'm really excited about tomorrow.
Heading down to the post office during lunch to collect my 3 packages.
Recent shopping purchases,can't wait !
And I show them up here too.

I got featured on Chicisimo.com,thanks so much Maria !
My first offical feature on a website:)
And also Joelyne,from The Sydney Girl for letting me in on this
and encouraging me on too ! Love youuu girl.

You can vote for my look here Thanks again !

i didn't even realize your top was cropped at first, it just looked like one whole shirt that changed colors half way down......i love it!! This look is so simple and street, perfect for this fall. i think i need some docs this week, it won't stop raining and they seem like the perfect thing to keep me little feet dry!

i'm leaving town for a week and will probably get behind on your blog but i will definitely visit you when i get home!! stay stylish and have a good week! :)
