DIY - Transform A Button Up Shirt

I love transforming bla things into something fun and beautiful.

I've had this thrifted short sleeved button up men's shirt laying around for quite a while and thought it would be fun to see how many cool things I can make out of it.

So, here we go. The first two - easiest DIY projects ever - a collar and shoe laces.

1. You'll need a button up shirt and scissors.

2. Cut off the collar right under the seam.

You are done, wrap around your neck and button it up...cute!

Now, lets make some cute shoe laces.

1. Cut about 1 inch right next to the button placket.

2. Rip all the way down (that will give it the fringed look)

Now, find some cute shoes and lace them with the new laces.

Keep the rest of the shirt and come back Thursday for two more DIY restyling projects with the shirt.

I love that you totally share my belief that it’s all about how you feel. You can feel comfy as hell and look cuter than heaven. (Would heaven be cute? You know what I mean, I hope.) Anyway, love your clothes. Love your hair. Love your face. Oh, and I love your clothes.
