So as promised I am here today with the reveal of my diy jean shorts (distressing tutorial is HERE) and a little giveaway!
First things first, as far as DIY stuff goes I am pretty low on the totem pole of skills. I really have none. But every once in a great while I can whip something out that I DIY and don't want to throw in the garbage immediately afterward. These shorts haven't left my booty for pretty much 5 days straight... except for dips in the pool of course. So I would consider them a resounding success, no?
My favorite features of these shorts? The "shredding" action definitely worked. I love that there are some areas where the denim is distressed, but not just big holes. There is a hole or two as well, but I think I got a good balance. Also key was the distressing on the pocket areas - bonus! I also really like the length (my husband requested three inches shorter, of course - MEN!). I love that they go with tanks, tees and even a 3/4 sleeve would be fun to pair with these. If we got a decent day of rain I would just die to wear them with my wellies. Time will tell.
A reader last week commented that I never smile in my pictures and maybe look a little sad. So it's SMILES all around today! I don't really know why I don't usually smile in my outfit pictures. I never really thought about it! So it's smiles today... we'll see about tomorrow.
Oh, and didn't I mention a giveaway? You know how I have been blabbering on all summer about BOLD accessories and how perfect they are for summer. I came across this bib necklace through my endless internet wanderings and I just KNEW I had to have it! It's from Mandy's Yellow Corner on etsy... I got to chatting with Mandy over email and she offered to do a giveaway of the same necklace for my readers!
The giveaway is for this necklace (or at least VERY similar to this necklace, they are all handmade!)... to enter, leave YOU MUST BE A FOLLOWER - so click "follow" on the sidebar of this blog and then leave a comment - that's it! Thanks Mandy and good luck!
