Who wears short(ish) shorts?
I realized I own one pair of shorts I mildly tolerate (eh, maybe two I mildly tolerate), and then I realized this problem could possibly be fixed with a trip to the thrift shop. I usually have trouble thrifting shorts/jeans and don't even bother trying, but I decided to give it a go, and found four pants in my size. And I liked them! That's unheard of! Well, one pair I didn't like, and that is the pair that became these shorts. Do I like them as shorts? Eh. They're okay. I think I might just dislike shorts. But it is 90+ degrees in North Carolina, and shorts are your friends in those conditions. So, yes, I cut up those jeans, made them shorts, and wore them in the shade (90+ degrees, people) in my backyard. I'm pretty sure they aren't cut straight, but, you know, that adds to the DIY, summertime charm of them, don't you think?
Also: That scarf pictured is my favorite scarf right now. And: Those polka-dot shoes are the most precious thing ever. Because of the polka dots, because of the bows, because of the power of the polka dot/ bow combo.
