Weekend Wear: Do It Yourself

 
 
 
 * Vest – Goodwill/DIY * Crop Top – Target/DIY * Skirt – Forver21/DIY * Purse – Target * 

My DIY skills are sub-par at best, but it if the project involves cutting and minimal sewing I’m game.  I pulled out this outfit a couple of weekends ago for a mini-staycation and realized I had DIY’d every piece.  My vest was a denim jacket; my crop top was a tank and my skirt use to be a maxi dress.  No sewing involved just a few snips with my fabric scissors for a few cute transformations.  Check out my tutorial on turning a denim jacket into a vest here
This pics may look like I am on vacation but I just took a day to enjoy my city, which is good every once in a while.  Happy Monday guys!

    Hi there! I Googled "summer brunch outfits" for some inspiration and found one of your outfits through that search. I took a good look at the picture and thought, "I know my city when I see it." So happy to have come across another Miami blogger! ๐Ÿ™‚

    That jacket was a great Goodwill find. I love how you turned into a vest! Since it's such a trendy item right now denim vests can get rather pricey for the teeny bit of inexpensive fabric that it is. I love this DIY version!
