Riam Does - Balling On A Budget - DIY Bardot Jumper

My People's ! Happy New Year and Tennngggg !!!

Hope this year is going great for you all. Right, I'm here with another outfit post for y'all. When I refer to a post as 'Balling On A Budget' I mean not having that much money and still making something work for you.

In London its pretty cold at the moment and if you know me personally, I'm all about being cosy and staying warm and sometimes that means looking like a stuffed sausage. Sometimes its either you look bad and warm or cute and cold. One day I was thinking how can I stay warm, look cute and still keep my style? So I came up with this DIY of an old sweatshirt and turned it Bardot jumper. From around the beginning of summer till now Bardot tops have been whats popping. So I thought I'd try and revamp old my clothes, because sometimes you can't just go out and buy new clothes for one outfit. I also made a match chocker with the rest of the fabric.

I styled the jumper 2 ways. The first way I styled the jumper was with a bodycon dress that I tucked in to look like skirt and boots (normal heels could work just as well). The second look was with high waisted skinny jeans and boots. You could easily wear a pair of cute trainers or flats with both of these looks. I'm sure everyone loves Grey sweats, like it just looks so good I don't know why but I just love it. If you're more playful with your style you could wear it with grey Joggers and pair it with heels/boots or even trainers.
