I actually wore this outfit a few weeks ago when we had a couple of warm days, but I never got around to uploading it until now. My favorite part of this outfit is definitely my shorts!
These were originally jeans from Goodwill. Using some scissors, a razor to fray the edges, and Tulip fabric paint, I turned them into tribal shorts! The project took about 2-3 hours and only cost me $4. Needless to say, I don't plan on buying shorts for more than $5 in the near future!
My inspiration came from these shorts from Pacsun. I saw them in stores and knew I needed them, but then I looked at the price tag... $40? "Uh, no thanks. I bet I could make those!" So I did some research on Pinterest (as usual) and emerged victorious!
I really like the look of the half-printed shorts! via Pinterest
This summer, I want to make American flag shorts and maybe try dip dying or ombre. We'll see! I also want to write a tutorial next time I DIY clothes from Goodwill.
Have you ever done a DIY like this?
