So I made myself a pair of festival-worthy denim shorts - and if by festival you mean you wear them while running to Target in the rain with your 2 kids in tow because you're out of paper towels and diapers? Then yes, they are totally my festival shorts (siiiigh. seektobemerry can totally rock the legitimate festival look, totes jelly) And I am really pumped about wearing them with my Hunter boots (one of my all-time fav gifts, thanks mom!).
I did not own a pair of jeans suitable for this mission, so I've been checking thrift stores every now and then for a pair that fit the bill. I found them on Tuesday. American Eagle jeans (my fav) - one size too big (nice and loose in the waist and thighs), low-rise, and an even lower price tag - $6. Woot woot.

Justin doing dishes: Hey honey? Whats the blue stuff in the grater? I don't remember anything blue with dinner?
Me: About that.....
|post-grating. not much of a difference....yet|
I've worn them once, and I see 2 potential problems/changes that need to be made. More distressing, stat. Some rips in the leg and along the waist and pockets are in these sho-tay's future. And, they are stretch jeans, so they don't get as wrinkly in the leg as I would like. So, I'm enjoying them for now, but as inexpensive and easy as they were to make, I think I'll continue to keep my eye out for non-stretch jeans (with a similar price tag).
Any DIY's for you lately? Up to any destruction?
