Spring Love-My Top Picks!

Alright, I think it’s safe to say we are all ready and anxious for pastels, brights and everything nice!!! Winter, it’s been real, but now it’s time for baseball, festivals, and laying out! I realize I am partial, but it doesn’t get better than Springtime in Arizona. Here are a few of my fav colorful must-haves so far…

Adore it? Afford it! Plus DIY jean shorts

Adore it? Afford it! is back!!!! Things have been busy busy over here. Due to my numerous vacations I have increased my work load and have had absolutely no time for outfit posts, but I have still managed to do a little bit of shopping. :) I thought I would share with you some great deals I have scored lately as well as my first DIY post.

Free People is by far my favorite brand, but it tends to be more expensive for my budget.  I typically score most of my great FP finds at Nordstrom Rack, but this adorbs crochet romper I found at TJ MAXX for $25.  It is a part of their swimwear line (which I didn’t even know they had).  It has a subtle gold tint to the fabric and I can’t wait to break it out this summer to the pool with a fedora and some wedges.

This watch I got at Target for $19.99. It is a men’s watch with a brown leather band and black and gold face. I only buy men’s watches because I love the large face. :)

Now onto my first DIY project on AVC…I am a big fan of the high waisted cut off Levi’s jean shorts that they sell at UO, but I didn’t want to pay $50 bucks for something I know I could make. I have been on the hunt for a good black pair of Levi’s jeans and finally found them yesterday at Goodwill.   I cut them and have only washed them once, but the fraying will only increase.

Happy Hump day lovelies!
