White after Labor Day! Global warming totally negates that outdated rule though, right? Because it's definitely still in the 80's and 90's here in Cali. Also, the blazer is actually a light blush tone that I'm absolutely in LOVE with, primarily because of how much it reminds me of CĂ©line (the French design house, not the Canadian, fabulous though she is).

Also, I finally got around to DIYing these shorts I tweeted about a while ago! I know I'm super late on the trend, but I'm pretty sure these are going to be essential on my trip to Thailand. It was really easy, too! I just grabbed an old pair of jeans that were a little too loose for my liking, and cut the legs off (I used my H&M shorts to figure out what angle and length to cut at). Then, I made some 2 to 1, water to bleach solution, dipped my newly shorn shorts in, and waited! FOREVER. lol. Then I got kinda bored and started splashing upward and adding water for a more subdued effect than the Dries Van Noten pants that inspired this little hack job.

What do you think? :D Any other DIYs you recommend? I rather like getting crafty!

  2. One of my most recent fashion blog posts was on blazers, and your blazer offers a unique touch to this otherwise casual look. My fellow Texans can appreciate your style here with the shorts and boots. Awesome look! So you're heading to Thailand? I hope you have a great time there. Absolute awesomeness, Allison! :)

    I am a DIY freak and bleach is so versatile to work with.

    Check out my DIY tie-dye dress that I made with bleach - it's a pretty recent post.
