Hotter than a Microwave... Wave

Hotter than a Microwave... Wave

I apologize for the lack of posts. Just got back from an amazing trip to upstate NY and I am beat. I took a bunch of pics, though, that I'm looking forward to sharing. This outfit is from Wednesday, when a night of high-end beer sampling turned into a slightly longer night than usual. I'm so stoked about how these DIY shorts turned out. Recently discovered the seam ripper makes these DIYs SO much easier. A few slits + a run in the washer and magic is made.

  7. I'm such a wuss when it comes to DIYs, but I do have several pairs of jeans that I probably won't ever wear again. Why am I not cutting them up? Hmmmmm. Fab look as always. I need to get some boot bling!
