10 x 10 LOOK 6: CAMPING CHIC
Hi friends, how's your weekend? I have a couple more 10 x 10 outfits to shoot and I'm hoping to finish that today. I've planned everything I'm wearing so it shouldn't be too hard.
What I am finding hard though, is styling these denim shorts. I like wearing them because they're comfortable, but they definitely lack the wow factor. They're just really simple and I guess my trouble is that I like to wear them with interesting and colourful tops and I don't really have those in the 10 x 10. (Perhaps apart from the red stripe t-shirt.) How do you style your denim shorts? I'd love to have a loose white peasant top to pair them with.
So here I put together a bit of a casual (camping) chic look, that, I keep thinking, I maybe can't quite pull off. It would work for a summer barbecue, just swap the lace top for a simple tank. Or even throw a checked shirt into the mix and go for a full on camping vibe :) I'd actually love to have a green blue checked shirt to wear with the shorts.
These are the shorts I diy-ed from a charity shop pair of boyfriends jeans, and I'm pretty happy with them. I distressed them a little bit, you can see that on the back pocket. My only doubt was whether to have the legs' hem line folded or whether to just cut them at the desired length and leave them fray for a more careless look. I love the careless look and would generally prefer it, but I wasn't sure it would work here. So I just folded them twice for now and who knows, maybe I'll take the plunge and cut them off higher soon. Same with the distressing, I wasn't feeling brave enough for wide slits down the front, but like I said, the night is still young. Do you think frayed leg ends would work?
What do you wear when you go camping?
And so with the impending outfit shoot(s) I'll bid you goodbye - with the hopes that the weather is much nicer where you are. Have a great rest of the weekend and see you next week with the seventh 10 x 10 outfit.
