How Did I Wear…

How did I wear…cut-off shorts?

Since it feels like Hell’s Kitchen outside (literally), who has time to wear pants everyday? I don’t!

If you’re a man with a lot of leg hair like myself, jeans are your last line of defense. Doesn’t it feel really disgusting when your body hair gets stuck to your pants leg? If you have any creative skills, you might as well cut them up and make a cool pair of shorts.

Cut them up, why can’t we just buy them? Most retail stores rack their prices up around this time of the year. Who wants to waste money on something you can create yourself for free.

Tip: When cutting up your jeans, make sure you mark the knee caps. Then, you want to cut evenly across with a sharp pair of scissors. Make sure you grab some sand paper to smooth out those edges. Wash and dry the jeans at least once or twice before you wear them out the house.

Okay, so back on topic. Lately, I’ve been in a very hippie, western mood. So, I threw on a racer back tank with my favorite oxford boots.

Tip: If you want to try wearing boots and shorts, less is always best. When in doubt, just throw on a thin t-shirt or tank with your shorts, and you’re good to go.

Overall, I just love little DIY projects. They just bring something different to the table visually.

Hopefully you can stay cool this week. If not, just cut up a pair of shorts and wear them out. I’m sure you will wrack up a lot of compliments!

 June is all about concerts and festivals, especially if you like to hear great music. Unfortunately, I actually don’t like concerts, but my friends always drag me out to see their favorite artists perform.

Just in case I’m stuck standing for three hours watching the same person perform, I like to dress a little comfortable. So, this week, I wanted to show off one of my music festival themed looks.

I guess you could say I was channeling my inner Frank Ocean with this over-sized shirt and headband. The paisley print shirt was purchased from H&M for $10 last year, and the headband was literally made by sewing on old tie together.

Since I have a soft spot for little “Do It Yourself” projects, I decided to distress my own jeans as well. Although these jeans were originally purchased from River Island for dirt cheap, they were very plain. So, one night when I was a little bored, I decided to distress my newly purchased skinny jeans by creating slits in the knee area, which gave them a have a very authentic look.

What do you think? How would you dress for a festival or concert? Is the “Do It Yourself” project the way to go this season? Feel free to share with us in the comment section below.

After 5: Thrifted

post_parris_031515_05post_parris_031515_02post_parris_031515_03post_parris_031515_04post_parris_031515_01Outfit: Thrift Stores

With the first day of summer just a few days away, it’s time to brighten up your wardrobe this season!

This week, we had the opportunity to catch up with our new friend Parris. As a highly regarded “Thrift Junkie,” Parris shows off her summer inspired look.

As mentioned above, brighter day’s mean brighter outfits. Our girl Parris proves this with her floral printed opened blouse, matching belt, blue and white high wasted pants, and similar colored earrings that match her blouse. Remember, this is the season for pastels and bright colors.

To add flair, Parris chose a pink spaghetti strap lace cami top to wear underneath her blouse. Remember, don’t be afraid to step out your comfort zone and show a little skin this summer.

This goes to show that it now always about how much you spend on an outfit, but how you can put together a great look for less. More specifically, Parris purchased here outfit from a few thrift stores. So if you plan on saving a few dollars this summer, you may want to stop by your local thrift shop and rack up.

Do you plan on going “thrifting” this summer? Tell us about your experiences below!
