Leather & DIY Embroidered Shirt

Embroidery or appliques on pieces are very on trend at the moment & as always for me, I like to test such trends first on DIYs before investing  in them. This striped shirt has been in my closet for almost 5 years & i thought a little embroidery on it would give it a 'new lease of life'. So, i cut out some flowers from a floral Ankara print that i had left over & embroidered these on the shirt, & I really love how different the shirt looks now. I styled it with this DIY leather pencil skirt & converse-like trainers to give it a casual look. I think that the striped shirt adds a 'springy' feeling to the leather skirt which is viewed more as a Fall/Winter wardrobe piece.
