Don't you just love summer
Together with my mom I walked on the lively boulevard of Scheveningen. We ate icecream, wandered down Scheveningen Pier and felt the soft summer breeze. I love having nowhere to be and having so much free time. When I got home I had the urge to use this inspiring day for one of my little projects and make something very beach like.

    <- I used a fitted shirt.

    If you use a shirt that's a bigger size then your usual you'll get some sort of dress, you'll have more pleats and I think it's more comfortable and pretty.
