Apologies for my sudden blogging break last week loves! Winter term is winding down and I have a million and one assignments to complete in the next two weeks.  I’m finally caught up – so here’s hoping I can stay on top from here on out.

This blouse may look familiar, because I wore it to death last summer {here and here for example}.  After so much use in hot weather, it was looking worse for wear.  So – of course – I decided to update it with a little DIY!  I heated up a small amount of green RIT dye and water on the stove, and let this blouse simmer in the liquid for about an hour.  Then, voila! – I suddenly had a mint colored blouse, perfectly on trend and ready for spring! Winning.
