However. It being the hottest summer the UK has seen for 7 years, my convertible has decided to exercise its right not to convert. Yes, I have put up with a winter of rain and snow slinking through the cracks which the proprietors of retractable roofs must stoically bear, only to find that, in response to sunshine, the lid remains resolutely shut. Hopefully I shall be able to give my driving diva ensemble a day out before the sun disappears (I refuse to respond to Mummy Muses' insinuations that my car is now of more value to me as a fashion accessory/photoshoot prop than a mode of transportation, although there may be more than a grain of truth in the accusations), but in the meantime, I did have a few other ideas!
The DIY Top
Well, if the perfect printed top hasn't come to you... make your own! No needles required, just a bit of creative folding and a sturdy strapless bra to tuck around...
Scarf (Worn as Top): Primark, Skirt: Boohoo, Shoes: F&F
The DIY Skirt
The next logical step!
Scarf (Worn as Skirt): Primark, Dress (Worn as Top): Primark (Past Season), Shoes: F&F
Going for a bit of a landgirl vibe...
Scarf: Primark, Dungarees and Shoes: Both Boohoo, Top: New Look (Teens)
A touch more traditional, but that doesn't mean to say you can't still exercise a little creativity... drape over shoulders for a romantic "off-to-the-opera" cape feel, or belt for more structure...
Scarf, Dress and Belt: All Primark, Shoes: F&F
Thrown over one shoulder, it also makes a chic peekaboo cover-up for a look which you might otherwise feel is a tad too revealing...
Scarf: Primark, Top: Love at Topshop (Past Season), Skirt: Boohoo, Shoes: Carvela (Past Season), Hair Band: Accessorize (Past Season), Bag: Primark (Past Season)
