I found this really cool lime green hat in H&M the other week and thought it would be perfect for studding! It's a similar idea to a hat I saw featured in one of NiaSays Youtube videos a few weeks back, which looked super cute but quite pricey for what it is (click the link to check out Nia's channel if you haven't already, she's brill!). So armed with a bag of studs and a butter knife I got to work on operation lime green studded hat... it was super simple to do, although my fingers did hurt quite a bit afterwards! I'm really happy with how it turned out and have worn it out in town during the day... it's definitely a head turner, whether that be for good or bad reasons. I personally love it and can't wait to style it with other outfits... so expect to see this bad lad in some future OOTD's!!! :)

Jacket: Topshop | Leggings: Urban Outfitters | T-shirt: New Love Club | Nike Air Max 1's: Office 

 I kept my outfit pretty casual as I was only popping into town to do a bit of shopping. I wore my super comfy Urban Outfitter leggings that I got a while back in the online sale for £10, which I was rather chuffed about as I had been eyeing them up for a while at full price! I love it when that happens!!! I paired them with my tie-dye T-shirt from New Love Club which I picked up at The Clothes Show Live in Birmingham last year for the bargainous price of £5, can't complain at that since you can buy it off their website and ASOS for £25 now! I love this T-shirt and i'm debating about whether or not to pick up some more, as i'm a big fan of collage type prints, geometric shapes & space print, which a lot of their designs feature. I also think they're the type of tee's that could be dressed up or down depending on your mood or the occasion. I then wore my Julep Nike Air Max 1's, which are my favourite shoes of the moment by far and my well loved Topshop faux leather jacket.
