There is a reason I do not DIY much of anything. Today, I’m going to tell you a story to illustrate why. I think it will be the first thing you laugh at today and really, that is OK with me. We need a little more laughter, right?
See those oh so cute denim shorts in the first picture? Yeah, I DIY’d those babies. I am desperate for denim shorts. I saw online somewhere the secret to cutting off your jeans into shorts and I was all over it. I found a pair quickly in my donate stack of clothes. I could not figure out why they were there. They were a lovely pair of Gap jeans and they fit perfectly. Crazy me. These are perfectly good jeans. So I did my thing and wore them that day. They were awesome.
I wore them to a school meeting. (with lots of people)
I wore them to Chick-Fil-A with my girls. (with a whole lot more people)
I was just about to wear them to choir practice at church when I noticed the reason they were in my donate pile. I found a hole in them. Let’s just say it was obvious and really not in the BEST place for a hole. I wore them all day long. You know, out in public. So just don’t let me DIY again. Remind me of it if I even think of it.
Here is what I wore last week along wit my hole(y) shorts!
Left: Cardigan (Banana Republic Factory Store), Tank (Loft), Shorts (well – you know), Shoes (Target)
Center: Tank (Loft), Jeans (with appropriate holes thank you – Edie Bauer), Shoes (Target)
Right: A DRESS! (Loft), Shoes (Target)
It is pretty funny around here when I wear a dress. My girls ooh and ahh and tell me I’m pretty. Note to self: Wear more dresses.
Have a super awesome week!
