Hope you all had a great weekend!

After trying many, many denim boyfriend shorts this summer I simply could not find any with the right cut for me.  Then I remembered this DIY cut-off pair and they were reborn.  I had the jeans for many years and a while back cut them and cuffed them for a fancy dress party (I was Daisy Duke – they were cuffed a little shorter then).  So I went for double denim yet again; with heels for work and converse for dog walks.

When did denim become cool again?!  Is it in fact cool again?  I’m going to go out on a limb here and say yes.  And I couldn’t be happier about it.

I know what you’re thinking – why no hairspray for that crazy fuzz hair… It’s a mystery to me too, believe me…

    I never thought I’d like denim on denim but I love this outfit! Does all this denim get hot though?

      yay, so glad you like it! Not sure about it getting hot, both my denims are very lightweight to start with couples with the scottish non-summer, I’ve been lucky just to be able to wear shorts! It’s only been max about 17 degrees here 🙁

    Absolutely great DIY cut-off and most probably it’s a good way to have the exact measure cut by own. For this Summer, this short with high heels or the converse really sounds cool. I am doing it for sure. Thanks for the post.
