Yellow shorts!

Remember how my yellow pants tore? I had been wanting to turn them into clams, but the cost of alterations would be more than the pants themselves! My darling hubby came to the rescue and chopped them up himself :-D

I just folded up the raggedy edges and voila, I have yellow shorts! I am adding these to my 30x30 items. Here is my updated list of 30 items -

P.S. Pls excuse the nightshirt and house slippers.

    Thanks Vicki :-)

    deedee: It is a challenge where you pick 30 items from your closet and wear them for 30 days, by mixing and matching to creat 30 different outfits. Here is a link that may explain more -

    Great chop! I am loving colorful bermudas this year (still need to find myself a pair), and these look fab on you. Glad that you can still wear your beloved yellow pants :D

    Fantastic! They look fab and I'm sure you'll get lots of wear from them this summer. I'm sure you'll think of all sorts of colours to wear with this as you go on, but a plain white top would look very fresh and crisp as well! Neat job, both husband and wife!
