Worth a shot!

I have 2 kids. I'm lucky if I get showered, dried, dressed and a photo taken most days. So, dragging myself outside to take the photo? Not so much on my list. But, I thought I'd give it a shot today. So, is it worth the extra trouble??

Ikat Skirt Old Navy (refashioned)

I got this Ikat skirt from Old Navy (which was a dress). It was on clearance for $13 I think. But it had a tear in the back, so a 50% off tag was attached to it. While trying it on I realized one of the straps also was broken, so they gave me 70% off! So I paid like $4.50 for it. And then chopped off the top, and make it into a skirt :) I suppose it would  have been a little bit easier to just get this skirt which was on sale too. But it was $22.50 in the store! I'll take $4.50 ( and 10 minutes with the sewing machine) over $22.50 ANY DAY!


  1. Oooh, I like the outdoor pictures! The lighting gives a better idea of the colors you're wearing.

  4. Super cute skirt, nice deal on it too! I have to say I do love the natural lighting :) but you totally pull off the inside pics too, so either way works :)
