Me and Sarah of My Coastal Chaos

Each lady sported a snazzy top from Bonfire tees, which are only  $19.99!!!
And Pet Helpers SC will see 100% of the profits, so make sure you head over to
 and check out the cool options including, tanks, vnecks, and the awesome baseball tee I'm rocking 😉
Our furbabies were each sporting these cute collar leashes from 🎀CrewLala🎀Right when I saw the  red and black plaid, I had to pounce!! Flannel/plaid is my jam and as you can see, Gus loved it too!!
Crew Lala Red and Black Buffalo Plaid Bow Tie Collar $46

To jazz up the baseball tee I opted for a gold statement necklace from Express and I had my heart set on these snazzy frayed jeans from Forever21 but lo and behold. . .. 
They were sold out.
😣Forever 21 SOLD OUT😣
I guess nothing is forever. . .ha

✂✂And you guessed it, I decided to make my own!✂✂
👖I grabbed an old pair of skinny jeans👖 from my closet. . .and when I mean old yall, i mean OLD, like the seams were busted and the only thing to hold it together was duct tape kind of old lol.
Now don’t judge, I had never done this project before and I wasn’t about to cut up a pair of my new ones anytime soon.
1.        I cut off about 2 inches from the bottom leg of the jeans so that I made them into capris.
2.        You’re gonna want to split the seams from the sides of the jeans.
3.        Start cutting strips. 
4.        Once you’re finished cutting, rather than spend a lot of time trying to distress them yourself. Just pop them in the washing machine and then the dryer and they will be PERFECT!
