I'm always sad in the fall when I have to put my summer clothes away for the year. My sundresses I can safely stash away knowing I'm going to see and wear them again in the spring, but sometimes there are trendier pieces that I really like, but don't know if I'm going to be able to use again next summer. This romper was one of those! 

Click through for more details on how I refashioned my romper (it's so easy you'll be pulling your summer clothes back out, I promise) and cost breakdown of my thrifted outfit!

This DIY was really the easiest DIY ever: I cut the shorts portion off the romper. I know, I know, it feels like cheating. I kind of felt like it was cheating when I decided to try it out and it worked so well! the fabric did fray a bit, for this lacey romper that looks totally fine. But if you're worried about making this look cleaner and more professional you can always sew a quick hem. Or if your romper is made of a knit fabric, just let it roll because it won't fray!

Now onto the other important thrifted outfit details! 

Jeans: American Eagle, $8
Booties: Unknown brand, $5
Top: Refashioned DIY, $0
Jacket: Old Navy, gift from my mom (and by gift I mean I stole it from her) $0
Bag: Gap, $4
Necklace: Target (on super sale) $4
Earrings: Old, I don't know...I'm going to say $2
Sunglasses: Also old, and were $1

Outfit Total: $24

Not too bad, right? This jacket is a total staple for me and is probably five years old, but it still looks so cute with everything! It looks especially cute with my new DIY top!
