undercover of darkness

Look what arrived in the mail yesterday! My cheap monday mens tee from asos and this vintage roots jacket from bandwagon found for just $40, such steal (Roots jackets typical retail for 350+ dollars). I cut the tee because it was a bit long & I love the raw edge look. I'm pretty surprised how well it fit my petite frame.

I'm trying to mix bohemian, prep and grungy pieces into my summer wardrobe. I've a low budget but I think that makes the whole situation that much more fun! Stay tuned for a video and D.I.Y. in the next week or so.
