How to Wear DIY: DIY jean shorts for winter
Also this weekend I tried out a new look for this super awkward time of year... it's still cold and grey, but we're tired of warm fall/winter colors, but it's not quite time to pull out the bright pastels. So thanks to the latest issues of Lucky and InStyle I read recently--they're taunting us with short skirts and springy colors...--I figured, how about a hybrid outfit? I can rock the cutoffs with tights, right?!
Worth a try, anyway. I pulled out some simple DIY cutoffs I made a couple summers ago (tutorial here, a few steps beyond just cutting off a pair of jeans!) and added tights and booties. I have literally never worn tights and shorts before. Pretty crazy! ;) But I tried the more practical version of Lauren Conrad's cover look--long necklace, lacy/textured neutral top... it pretty much worked, I think!
Blazer: Target. Top and vintage bag: Goodwill. Necklace and boots: F21 (similar necklace).
Shorts: DIY makeover!
Do you rock shorts with tights in winter?! I think it helps beat the late-winter wardrobe blues! Any other tips??
