Construction Zone

July 11, 2012







File this under a question I thought I'd never ask myself: What does one wear to a construction zone? I knew dirt would probably be involved, so I decided on cutoffs and a simple white tee. I didn't own any cutoff jean shorts (!), so I took scissors to a pair of old jeans and voila! A new pair of shorts and one less pair of jeans. Also, I had to add in some floral (sandals) and a neon necklace, which I now realize resembles a construction cone.

You might be asking why I'm trudging around in a construction zone. Matt and I bought a house! It's been a long road and several house walk-throughs but we'll be overseeing movers very soon and saying goodbye to apartment life. You all, my fashionable readers, are the first to see some of the inside! :)


Tee: Gap (old) [similar]
Shorts: DIY (cut from a pair of old Gap jeans)
Sandals: Gap (old)
Jewelry: JewelMint necklace, DIY neon necklace, Kenneth Cole pendant necklace via Piperlime.com [similar], Target bracelet, Mane Message hair ties worn as bracelets
Bag: Steve Madden via Nordstrom Rack
