Mixed metals and bermuda shorts

Outfit Details: BCBG heels, DIY Bermuda shorts, Rachel by Rachel Roy top, Michael Kors bag, Ray Ban sunnies

Since the weather is finally nice enough to enjoy being outdoors, I've made a resolution to be more active in my time outside the gym. This includes hiking, more occasional runs, and walks after dinner. This look is from one of those after dinner walks, and I will be the first to tell you heels were a bad choice. The outfit was inspired by a polyvore challenge I did a week or two ago using bermuda shorts, which are not the easiest thing to pull off. These shorts I created myself, since I've been wanting a pair of heavily distressed cutoffs that aren't too short. I started with a pair of what you could call "mom jeans" and bleached the life out of them. Before the bleaching went down, I made some of the larger rips, which were easier to see and work with. Then I bleached until I got the color I wanted, and after washing thoroughly, I hand sewed a cuff to get a length that hit just above the knee.

I plan to do more outfit photos, and I apologize for the variation in lighting. I'm still getting my dSLR camera squared away, so these were done using my phone. 

Also, it's clear I'm not, nor have ever been a professional model. Sorry for the awkwardness. Either way, enjoy.
