Garden Party

Garden Party

Garden Party

These shorts were originally capri pants, which I thought I'd never wear again and had bagged up for the thrift store, but the other day I was feeling rather productive and thought they might make nice shorts and so I lopped them off. I can't say I'm displeased with the results. I'm looking forward to fraying them a bit in the wash, too. Oh and the cardigan I uncovered recently at the thrift store and just about died that it hadn't been snapped up yet. Score!
