How to Wear DIY: the tribal print top and summery accessories, for spring

This is a tough time of year to wear most of my DIY creations - I'm not quite ready to walk around with bare legs and summery dresses (although I was craving a floral skirt this weekend! ;)), but I do like adding something special to my typical jeans-and-grey-tee weekend uniform. So this last weekend I pulled out this DIY tribal print top I made with the homemade stamp and, in the interest of doing something different, paired it with a white linen skirt (gasp! summery!) and sunnies and hat. It was so warm and sunny, I was just itching to wear something fresh even on errands! Trust me, it is more fun to walk around Whole Foods in a skirt. ;)

The big difference between this and this top in a summer skirt outfit is A) the Converse instead of sandals or wedges, and B) the Easter plants and bright Easter-ey colors on display instead of berries or tomatoes or something. Gosh, those colors are bright.

Hat and sunglasses: F21. Necklace: World Market! Belt, skirt: Vintage, thrifted. 
Shoes: Converse. Bag: Old Navy. Tee: DIY, here!

Here's to warm weather and wearing last summer's DIYs!
