After posting about ways to wear denim cutoffs, I was really inspired to get started on my DIY projects I vlogged about a few weeks ago. So I ran out to Goodwill and picked up a pair of denim jeans 2 sizes bigger than my normal.  

I must admit that this didn't go as smoothly as I originally anticipated - these were supposed to be longer boyfriend shorts. But after cutting and distressing, I wasn't in love with the fit so I just cut them shorter to make shorts. I haven't washed them yet so they'll get more frayed (which is what I actually like) but I think that since they're a bit bigger, I could go even shorter... what do you think? I'm still on the fence on whether I heart them or not..

We met our friends for Happy Hour and ended up walking around downtown Santa Monica well into the evening. So I was thrilled my outfit was so easy going. A pop of neon, twisted bun & pink lips were perfect accessories with these shorts. I think I'm definitely going shorter.... Happy Monday everyone!! xoxo
