Today, I'm bringing you a twofer. See, who says Friday the 13th is unlucky? For this week's DI(fr)Yday, I made this cute bleached-message tee, and I wore it out last night. (Insider tip, I don't actually always do the DIYs on a Friday.)
This project is from one of my favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess, and you can find the tutorial here. For my version, I bought a tee on sale at Gap (in burgundy, one of my favorite colors), and painted a cute French phrase on it, lyrics from the song "Un Éléphant Me Regarde" by Antoine . . .
Je veux m'emmêler avec toi
[I want to entangle myself with you]
Wouldn't it be cute to do a canvass shopper with a little grocery list on it?
Everything looks prettier when it's written in French.

As for the rest of the outfit . . .
The jeans are new. I just love colored jeans for spring, and this dusty rose pair were so pretty that I had to scoop them up while I was at Gap. The shoes are a favorite pair of mine. I think they're just Forever 21, but I found them in a vintage shop. The blazer is one of those simple, classic pieces that looks a bit more special when you roll up the sleeves to reveal a pretty striped lining.
I do love a blazer with sleeves rolled to bracelet length. So sophisticated and feminine, don't you agree?
