Last week Ismail and I were invited to our friend's 4th of July barbecue at her (aamaaaazing) house. With good food, great company, and plenty of drinks to go around the night was a blast. We played lawn darts and I won! We made funny spiral hot dogs (who knew that they cooked more evenly that way) and attempted to plan a big road trip for the end of the summer!
I DIYed these shorts the night before the BBQ and I am so happy with how they turned out! I used acrylic as well as fabric silk screening paint to make these bad boys. The stars were stamped on with a home made potato stamp! And I used tape to get the stripes. Leilani said I reminded her of Kelly Kapowski from Saved by the Bell in these, which I totally don't mind! She was a babe!
