fashion friday: diy attempt

 Okay, so we all know by now I am not so much a crafty person (scrapbooks stay away!!!), but when it comes to fashion, I really wish I was. So when I saw Maegan’s DIY shirt/vest thing, I was relieved that finally there was something I could actually attempt! All I needed were scissors and a t shirt, and that, I was thinking I could handle.
Surprisingly I didn’t mess it up, and I was actually pretty happy with the results! I thought for sure Jimmy would know that I had made it, but when he got home he mentioned how cute it was, and was shocked when I told him I had made it all by myself. I felt like a 4 year old showing off my arts and crafts.
So, here it is. My version of Maegans DIY.
I should start calling my Fashion Friday posts, 101 ways to wear a Hanes tank…
So, the skirt is thrifted and it’s huge on me, I actually wore it when I was pregnant with Chloe. Hence the belt, which is from Forever 21.
Shoes: Steve Maddens from TJ Maxx
Necklaces: Chain- doubled up, thrifted. The other one is from etsy and has my babies first initial on one side, and their birthday on the other.

  11. Interesting outfit. I think you look adorable in anything to be honest. The red bow was cute.

  12. omg I love it with the red bow. I love really how it’s a masculine look but the bow adds just enough femininity. The more you wear it the more the edges will curl. I love it. Nice job. You look adorable and I LOVE your shoes!

  14. it looks SO CUTE!!! and you are so cute!!! love it!
