I love me some denim shorts. I wear them pretty much all summer. I probably have about 10 pairs……
That said, I decided I wanted to spice things up a little with my cut-offs and try a few DIYs. The first is really simple – adding a side stripe along the seam. You can do this with or without a sewing machine. I used a sewing machine because it is faster and nap time is only so long at my house.

- sewing machine or needle/thread
- clear nail polish

Finding the perfect pair of jeans is hard, especially after you’ve had a baby or two. A few months after I had my second and had lost most of the baby weight I decided it was time to wear something other than leggings. I was going to buy new jeans. While I had lost alot of the baby weight, my body was just different; specifically it was rounder in the middle (still working on that). So I was on the hunt for jeans that would help slim my tummy. And I didn’t want to spend alot because I knew my body would continue to change over the new few months. So my budget was <$100.
I took me alot of try ons but I finally found a few pairs that I love.
BTW -the best way to try on denim is to order online in a few sizes and try them on in the comfort of your own home. Same applies to bathing suits.
