Ways I Wore It: Horizontal Striped Tee..

Since it’s moving week for us, I have created {and will be scheduling} posts each day to keep you busy while I’m finishing packing, moving, unpacking, and decorating, {and to keep me from panicking about being away from my blog and all of you for so long}. So I’m rummaging through old posts and compiling some of my favorite outfits, diys, and decor in fun new ways.

Today… one of my favorite t-shirts ever, which is actually from Forever 21. I bought it back in 2007 I think and it originally had an elastic band around the bottom. After a year or so of not wearing the shirt too often because of said band, I simply grabbed a pair of scissors and cut it off. It rolls up just a hint at the bottom edge now {see it above} but I love it and wear it quite often still.

Here are a few of my favorite outfits with my cheapy-DIY’d T-shirt…

    I love your blog and your fashion style! Sometimes those cheapy shirts from forever 21 turn out to be the most versatile! I have fixed many of shirts by simply cutting off the annoying elastic band like you did!

    girl, you are the queen of mixing and matching! i like every single one!

    and the elastic at the bottom of a shirt is MADDENING. i think i should go home and take scissors to all shirts that have that! lol i might just do it!!!

    p.s. i hope you have hired movers. omfg. it makes the whole stressful move process a lot less stressful on the big day. and a lot less physically painful! 🙂 it is still hard work, but extra hands help. DOY. like i am telling you something you don’t know.
