need a trim

The DIY shorts I wore in my previous post is as easy as 1, 2, 3. In fact, just follow the steps below and you're set with your own pair of denim-crochet shorts this summer! Okay, so the idea of denim x crochet may not be an entirely new concept but I have yet to see this combo around and personally, I think they're quite a match :)

1. Materials: pair of shorts and crochet trimming (I used approximately 1 meter)
2. Turn the shorts inside out and pin the trimming to the hem of the shorts.
3. Sew them together.

I'm currently in a DIY/sewing obsession. Already have a few more DIY tutorial posts lined up for the next few weeks. I wish I had the time to execute all my ideas at once so I can share with you all! It's always inspiring to see what kind of DIYs other bloggers come up with. My 3 go-to blogs would have to be P.S.-I made this, A Pair and a Spare, and I spy DIY. They're all so talented and never fail to amaze me with their creativity. Do you have a favorite DIYer?

Limited by my 9-5 business casual attire, my lazy weekends never leave the basics of t-shirts, oversized jumpers and denim. It's not uncommon that I find myself dumbfounded and staring at my closet in the dilemma of outfit choices. Pairing opposites seem to always do the trick. Just like here, wearing the girliest shorts with a boyish rolling stones t-shirt and long ankle-length cardigan. Think Romeo & Juliet, Beauty and the Beast, lace and studs, and fries with ice cream: all-time greatest examples of opposite attraction. DIY post to follow "short"-ly!

a bright future

This summer is all about color blocking. Here's a few of my color combo obsessions lately. Though my closet is a stranger to vibrant, eye-catching hues, I cannot resist but to give this trend a try. It's fun how a simple tweak, like bright accessories, shoes, or nail polish, can completely change a look. And as a true Vancouverite, I just had to include that last photo to support my home team in the NHL Stanley Cup finals. Go Canucks Go!
