Highland Games

It's raining, it's raining,
There's pepper in the box,
And all the little ladies
Are holding up their frocks.
Hubby and I went for a wee stroll in the park in-between downpours yesterday and staged an impromptu game of good old Highland caber tossing :)
What I Wore:
FROCKTASIA revamped denim shorts
90s Alien clubbing top with grey cami underneath
Miss Selfridge tights
Steve Madden kick-ass boots
Crochet knit beanie
Turkoman bag
80s sunnies
An assortment of bangles
Caber tossing action, hai-yah...
I'm hoping to revamp some more of these funky cut-offs in the near future. 
I've got a whole stash of hubbies old jeans, a mega lot of Dylon that I scored on eBay a couple of years ago and more decorative buttons and embellishments than you can shake a stick at ;)
I've also got a rather fabulous book about different tie-dye techniques that I'd like to try out.
When I made these two pairs a couple of weeks ago I just winged it with a whole bunch of rubber-bands.
I still think they turned out really cool though...
Last but by no means least here's some caber tossing action by my beloved hubster...
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend :)
Lot's of love,

Oh those cut-offs are so gorgeous and I hear them screaming "PISS OFF RAIN!" You look fabulous shaking your stick at the rain clouds - they wouldn't dare at the sight of you looking warrior-princess-fabulous!! xoxo

You've done an awesome job with those cut-offs. They would cost a fortune at a 'trendy' fashion boutique. And I love the bag.

What is the weather like?! We are nipping out at any opportunity between showers, but haven't done any caber tossing as yet. But we do have woods up the road, so maybe...

Love your booty shaking daisy ducks amor.
Vixcita will gag for these embellished shorts.
I adore that photo of you running wild with that big piece of tree.
