Summer beauty hacks, clothing ideas

T shirt dresses are perfect!!

They're long enough to cover,
super comfortable and 
This T-shirt dress is from Walmart for under $10!

Summer beauty hacks, clothing ideas, cut off shorts

I've had the hardest time finding 
shorts that were long enough, a flattering fit
and a little distressed. 

I grabbed some jeans from my closet that I was no longer wearing,
 cut them off at the knee,
and distressed them.

This pair I folded up the hem and pressed it.
It stays folded even after washing.
I made a few simple cuts
with a hobby knife on the pocket.
Washing them made the edges distress.

I paired these shorts with my FAVE T-SHIRT of the summer.
It's the Time & True loose Vneck from Walmart.
It's the perfect fit and super soft and comfy.

For this pair of shorts, I cut the legs of jeans at the knee,
then washed them.
It left the hem frayed, raw and perfect.
I zig zag cut the thigh area with a hobby knife.
The black T is also from the Time and True line
at Walmart.
They really are the best T's and only $8.

I found a cute frayed looking, over sized top at Ross.
I made a small cut at the bottom on the lower right hand side.

I then tied the ends in a knot to give the hem
some pizzazz.
It's a great way to add interest to an 
uninteresting top.

Knit skirts are wonderful to wear in the summer!

I like to wear this black knit skirt (similar here*)
with a basic V neck.
This one is from the Universal Thread line at Target.
