day twentyone. upcycled sundress and Lauryn as a guest!

My pseudo cousin Lauryn and I got to spend a day at the beach (YAY!!!). She is so much fun and is so smart I love having her around! I am so excited for her to be attending Northwestern in Chicago for her Masters in Journalism at the end of September! She is also an amazing photographer and I had her shoot these photos of me.

This is actually a dress i remade from 2 fast fashion items. A top and old skirt from Forever 21. Normally when stuff goes bad form there I just got rid of it. But there was just a stain on the bottom of the shirt and i didnt really like the skirt (It was really poofy, i cut off probably 1 yard of fabric to make it what it is now). So i took them and some elastic and voila! The dress you see here. I made this well before I decided to do the blog so no tutorial but its pretty easy! Maybe I can make another one and show you how.

my sandals i got in Hawaii. I wore them basically the whole second half of my trip. Those and my hiking boots. I love them and wish I would have gotten them in more colors.

Here's Lauryn! She is wearing her moms top from the 70's. She wears a lot of thrifted and things form her moms closet. I have known her for her entire life and I can say she has a great fashion sense! She is also very thrifty like me! And being a poor college student (and future graduate student in Lauryns case!) makes thriftiness a necessity! 

She was a great model as well and I loved having her as a photographer!
