unintentionally patriotic outfit

I (Jessica) don't usually get into holiday-specific outfits. Especially anything that can only then be worn for said holiday, like the 4th of July. And we won't even talk about Christmas, though I did dress up for Easter.

So last month I had this men's button down shirt I knew I wanted to refashion into a tank using my basic tank tutorial. It turned out really cute, and after I had styled it and taken pictures I realized I had unintentionally dressed for the 4th of July! How fortuitous for us, a ready-made Holiday blog post! (Also, props to me I used 'fortuitous' in a legitimate sentence.)

I added a ton of layered gold necklaces and bracelets, including my favorite, the ankh my friend brought back from his trip to Egypt in college (I love ancient Egypt, this necklace was the only thing I asked him to bring back!) Also, an act of God occurred and my hair consented to be curled.

And I got to wear the $0.25 jeans I scored while thrifting with my friend Brandi! They were full of holes, but that was exactly what I was looking for at the time, so score.

Ironically, after posting a teaser pic of the fabric on Instagram I found out that another of my friends has this exact shirt, only not refashioned...awkward! Now we have to coordinate to make sure we don't accidentally match and have that "someone else is wearing the same outfit as me" moment.

Tank: DIY from a $1 men's tank (tutorial coming next week!)
Jeans: ancient Silver Jeans ($0.25)
Jewelry: thrifted collection over the last 10 years
Shoes: JustFab ($25--you can also see them here in  my last 12x12 remix)

We hope you all have an amazing Holiday weekend this week! Eat some good food and light off some fireworks for us, y'all. And come be sure to back next week to see in excrusiating detail how I made the tank, because I'll be posting the tutorial.
