DIY Crochet Shorts

Anthropologie top | DIY crochet shorts | UO sandals 

This week I went home to visit my family before school starts.  I was excited to wear my new DIYed-inspired-by-Whitney crochet shorts!  I was so jealous of the shorts she wore in the Pajama Party post that I decided to DIY them using crochet trimmings and boys boxer shorts (that was an awkward target buy...).
Also, if you are wondering about the long sleeve tee under short sleeve shirt √† la seventh grade, it's because I forgot to bring a sweater home, and I love the texture of the top of this blouse!

Whitney and I will reunite on Monday, so until then I will leave you with the adorable photo of the turtle I saw at the aquarium this weekend.

  12. Those crochet shorts are super cute, Mallory! And I love your cuff, as well as your top. The detail on the shoulder strap reminds me of Rodarte for some reason.
