Dip-Dye & Neon

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

It was a very uneventful Saturday this past weekend. It's been so ungodly hot in Los Angeles, and all I want to do is sit in front of my a/c unit. I know, you might think I'm whinny and that other places are hotter than LA, well you're right! But I don't pay $1200/ month for 600 square feet for shitty weather!!! So I'm over it!

I have paid my dues too, I grew up in 110 degree weather and then I lived in Chicago with negative temps in the winter and ghastly humidity in the summer... so there, I've earned my stripes ;D

I did however squeeze in some blog photos, no thanks to the heat and humidity. My husband and I had to run a few errands, so I grabbed a couple of my summer favorites: Dip Dye shorts and a neon tee.

The shorts I actually dyed myself using the technique I explained with my ombre top in a previous post. The fringe purse is another DIY of mine too! My outfit/DIY's cost roughly $46.

I love that YSL knock off ring!! So pretty! And I love the neon and dip dye shorts. I have yet to transform any of my denim, but maybe I will when it starts cooling down a bit. It is too damn hot to be outside! <3

I suck at making shorts but yours look great! It's actually unseasonably cool here this week, I'm going to miss summer mostly because I don't like winter! Or taking blog pictures outside when it is cold!
