Shop Your Own Closet Challenge - Round 2

{Top: James Perse; Shorts: cut from romper; Shoes: Sam Edelman; Nails: OPI Lucky, Lucky Lavendar}
Oh guys I'm just not feeling it this week.  I'm going to chock it up to summer because I don't have much other explanation for the lack of zeal to blog this week.  And I wanted to really compose a well written post about the cheetah romper that turned into a pair of shorts and a top with the magic of scissors, but when I started to write about it, I realized it's nothing all too exciting.  I basically just took something from my closet that I no longer liked as a whole and gave it a little transformation by cutting it in 2.

This romper was part of my Shop Your Own Closet Challenge from back in May.  So far I've transformed 2 of the pieces from the challenge (you can see the denim jacket transformation here).   Scroll down to the bottom to see the piece as a romper and a top.  I hope everyone's enjoying their summer so far.  With exactly 2 weeks to go before Taylor starts 1st Grade, we're all feeling a bit rushed and anxious to make the most of summer.  Off to go do that right now in fact :)

Linking up with Lindsey for WIWW &
Worn as a top in a P&L post just a few weeks back
 And worn in a P&L post last year; the original romper that I hacked into
Happy Hump Day!


  1. I've been feeling the same way lately when it comes to writing post, don't feel like I have much to say. I like your creativity though, with turning a romper into shorts & a top. Don't know if I would have the nerve to do it, but they look great! Plus, I am in love with those sandals. Any chance they are still available in stores??

  2. Maybe the lack of vigor for blogging is due to starting the week off with 2 nights out till midnight - who do we think we are 20- somethings?
    I think it is awfully clever of you and I love the shorts!

  3. Love how you edited the romper into two distinct pieces. I actually like them separate even better! This outfit just screams summer cool to me. I like everything about this outfit...especially how they go with the shoes.

    PS - I linked up today for my first time...wish I had a better camera to show off my outfit. : )

  4. I'm still in sweats and fluffy socks but like the romper-now-shorts. AND...I love the nail polish.

  5. Wow, that is SO creative!! I really admire your talent and ability. And I love what your romper became.

    I followed you here from WIWW!

  6. I love how it turned out!! You're inspiring me to dig through my closet and restyle some of the cute clothes I used to wear. Hoping to try one out next week. I love your shoes, they go perfect with your outfit.

    PS I would love to know how to turn a romper into shorts and a shirt. Great job!

  7. Great idea! Love the before and the after! I have been shopping my closet all summer...haven't bought anything in a few months actually. Kinda strange for me but I am saving for something pretty big so it's worth it. I love discovering new (old) things, it's been fun!

  8. Awesome! Now I have to go look in my closet....fairly certain I have nothing that cute!

  9. Those shorts are incredible! I can't believe you made them from a romper! The top you made from it is gorgeous too!
