after a lovely afternoon with the girls at Starbucks, we were en route to LUSH!!!!! (um.. duh) and i stopped in my tracks when I saw this massive sign for a pair of the perfect coloured khaki pants. its more on the green side.. then the brown khaki.
AT LOWES/BIG AND TALL/EDD HARRY - yeah, I have no idea which one of these it was at.. but its one of those discount men retailers.
And get this... they were $9.99 a pair. They had a beige one as well.
GRANTED these pants were your normal slacks... but my brain is wired D.I.Y - thanks to the daily obsession with D.I.Y blogs (some of my favourite.. Outsapop Trashion Recycle Fashion and A Pair and A Spare)
AND WHAT DID I SEE IN PLACE OF A PAIR OF SLACKS?
A pair of cute summer high-waisted shorts.
Lol, no I am not crazy... one could definitely DIY the hell out of those Lowes pants...
something like this perhaps?
these are available on etsy by the way for sale... just found them for $15 USD shipped internationally from the US.
Chloe' shorts on Net-A-Porter for about $350 GBP....yeah sure.
I shall prove it to you :)
I am going to try and get my hands on one of them, and DIY it.. perhaps with some gold studs aswell? Ooooh... now were getting fancy ;)
HERE ARE SOME OF MY INSTANT INSPIRATIONS.
PS TREND ALERT: KHAKI NAIL POLISH
