Trend Setter On The Loose





Top: Madewell
Shorts: Madewell DIY
Shoes: Converse
Ring: @Work

What does one do when she gets bored of wearing a pair of old shorts? She decides to take on a DIY project and turn them into something new! 
To create these beauts, I took some scrap fabric from an old sewing project (look familiar?) and sewed them onto denim shorts. I'm not exactly sure what inspired me to do this, but my guess is I saw some hipster girls sporting them on Tumblr and was eager to create my own version.
A Note For The Future: Today a girl at school, who I don't know, complimented me on my shorts. It led her later to say something like "They are a great trend for Spring!" So just to let the internet know, when this patterned-short-cuff trend goes big, it's all thanks to moi.
