old and broken





Shirt - Grandpa's old
Shorts - Dad's old
Bandeau top - Gina Tricot
Shoes - Topshop




Don't think I could get a scruffier outfit together. But I like it all the same. Messy hair, and the top seam of the shirt has ripped off almost completely. The denim shorts have holes all over the place. I've tried to sew them every once in a while but it doesn't take that long until the hole is there again. The fabric is just so old and frail already. Also, the shoes are so worn out 'cause I didn't use many other shoes last summer. (Compared to the shirt&shorts, the shoes' age of 1 year isn't that much though.. I think the shorts may be 40 years old!) In the background you can see the paint peeling off our house, which is quite fitting to all the worn-outness. This'll probably be the last summer for these pieces of clothing, so they'll get as much use as I can give. The shorts are my all-time favourites! :--)
