What I Wore This Week: Vintage Levi's

I scored this gorgeous pair of vintage Levi cut-off's from a local vintage store. I was performing for the Olympic Torch arriving in Liverpool and needed something black to wear with a colourful tee so treated myself to these. Okay, I have to admit this week has also involved a trip to the beach and a zoo where the shorts may have come with me. (ALERT: ADDICTION) 
What an exciting week it has been. Singing for the Olympic Torch (even though I didn't get to see it myself) was so exciting and I love to be in performances. My lovely boyfriend was in the crowd too which makes it even better.
I haven't been to the zoo since I was 11 and we were going for my sister's 18th birthday so it was like being a kid again. Unfortunately, it rained most of our time there but we managed to see all the animals and I remembered to wear trusty tights with my shorts so I was kept from cold legs. The painted dogs were my favourite animals, they were all cuddled up together asleep. If you haven't been to the zoo in years, go learn about animals! I bet you haven't done that since school ;) I hadn't.
My last trip with my shorts, the beach... I had gone with tights and ended up taking them off - it was such a beautiful sunny day! It was lovely sitting back watching the boys shout rules at each other whilst they played rounders&cricket and catch some rays with the girls. The outfit pictures are from that trip, I hope you like them - let me know what you think!

I think it's so important to support local businesses doing the same as me, too. I love visiting my local vintage boutiques and online vintage stores to see what I can find. Knowing that I'm supporting someone else as they make a career for themselves makes shopping even more accomplishing!
