DIY Ripped Denim, Vintage Clogs and Purse = Thrift Store Scores!


 I actually took these a while ago during a random sunny (albeit WINDY AND COLD) day.

Ps- Can you spy the Space Needle?  I had a hard time getting us both in the frame 😉Blog hm conscious collection top 7 FAM DIY destroyed Straight Leg Jeans Vintage Clogs-1Do you have a pair of straight leg denim that you don’t know what to do with?  It’s kind of a weird cut for me, BUT I often find them at the thrift stores for so cheap, so really…I have to, right?!  I usually just cuff or roll them (my answer to just about every jean, since my legs are so short!), but I got this pair of ridiculously comfy 7FAM straight leg jeans for $7.50!  I knew that I wouldn’t wear them as is, so, I cut off the hem to my favorite length (measured off a pair that I love), and then cut/distressed them a little.  I’ve worn them SO many times now since!

I really hadn’t planned on taking pics this day.  She had gone to preschool in the morning, and it’s all about “comfort/what you don’t care about getting ruined” /what I can get ON her and out the door in 15-20 minutes.  Let’s be honest, I still want her to be cute, but…what she goes to preschool in isn’t necessarily what I blog all the time.  Mainly too, because once she’s gone to school, I don’t have time to take pics after/or it’s got paint/mud on it!Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-1Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-2Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-3Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-4But get her near the beach, throwing rocks and sticks, and she’s happy. 🙂Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-5Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-6On me…
