Summer Fashion As the Season Winds Down

While the warm weather will stick around for a few more months here in the Sunshine State, summer vacation is quickly coming to an end.  It’s both a curse and a blessing.  I will miss waking up AFTER the sun has come up, our weekday trips to theme parks and water parks and staying up past midnight without counting the number of hours until the alarm goes off. I dread packing lunches, morning traffic and afternoon pick-up line.

But, I am excited to get back to a routine at home and work. Hubby will appreciate the return of regular visits to the grocery store, as well as not having to dig through the laundry baskets for a pair of matching socks. I will be able to dedicate more time to blogging and you will get to see more of my handmade goodies.

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you some of what I’ve worn (#wiw) over the last few weeks…

Toddler Boy Bermuda Shorts

Warning: the posing in the following picture is quite fierce. If you are not prepared, please step back from your computer, take a deep breath and try again later.


I made my (almost 4 year old!) son some surfer-style bermuda shorts. He calls them his rockstar pants!

I used quilting cotton, which concerned me a bit that they would be too flimsy. So we took them for a test drive. He: wrestled, did some sweet knee slides and kicked some sizzlin’ hot breakdance moves – shorts still IN TACT at the end! He is like a pint-sized crash test dummy for clothes.

They were super fun and easy to make, so I am pumped to make some for my smaller dude and some friends!
