DIY bleached & studded jean shorts



Finally some almost spring weather! To celebrate, we made these adorable bleach dipped & studded jean shorts. First of all, you cannot go wrong with a pair of cut off levi's and adding bleach and studs to them? Mmm... perfect.

You'll need: A pair of shorts (we suggest levi's), bleach, a bucket or bowl, and studs.

I rigged up a pretty nifty little contraption with my bucket and a hanger that ended up working really well. I hung my shorts from the hanger and filled up the bucket with bleach water so that it hit the shorts about half way up. I then let them sit for several hours, until they were as light as I wanted them to be. (May we suggest using the rest of your bleach water to clean your bathroom? Leah did this, and was able to clean up her dorm showers after they were caked with mud from mudslam).

Once your shorts are done give them a good wash in the ole' washing machine and dry them. You can then add your studs in any design you like! I did a line across each back pocket and a couple in the front.




We seriously love how they turned out! Since we share clothes, we can't wait to wear them all of the time this summer. We will of course have to take turns, so hopefully it won't lead to any arguments:). Sharing clothes is awesome! Erin and I are so excited to move into our apartment (NEXT WEEK!) and have each other and each other's closets so close!

What are you excited to wear now that the weather is nice?
