A Weekend on a Wednesday

Wouldn't it be nice if we got a weekend right smack in the middle of the week?  I guess then it wouldn't be a weekend, but just a day off...  Whatever it would be called, it sure would be lovely to kick back and relax with my family in the middle of the work week!

T-Shirt, Belt, Sandals, Necklace: Target
Jorts: American Eagle Boyfriend Jeans Turned Jorts
Bracelets: Bealls

How do you like my fancy hair do? ;)  I turned my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans into shorts. The hole in the knee was simply getting too big, so I chopped them off at the knees and voila! Jean shorts!

My Little Guy wanted in on the action. =)

This is the comfy and casual outfit that I wore on Memorial Day for a park date with my family.  We had absolutely nothing planned this past weekend and I just love impromptu park dates followed by cooling off in our kiddie pool!


I don't often put up pictures of my kids, but here is proof that I really am a mom. And that this outfit is mom proof. Here I am being chased by a "pirate" through the park . . .


And doing other fun mom stuff with my kidlets. =)

What did you do with your long weekend?

I'm linking up today with The Pleated Poppy, Transatlantic Blonde and Simply Sarah

Agreed, it would be lovely to have a Wed off...it would make the week go by a lot faster! Look at you being all creative, making Jorts :)

I wish that too, would be so nice!! You look precious with your sweeties, who are cute as can be :)) It's always fun to have those times, I'm glad you enjoyed. I was at the beach with mine :))) xx

"Weekend Wednesday"...I would absolutely sign that petition! I would be so much more productive on the other 4 days of the work week. :o)
We had church activities ALL weekend..then a picnic and swimming on Monday. It was all good!

My hubby had last wednesday off work (I'm a SAHM so "days off" aren't quite the same!) and it really broke up the week. It was nicer than a long weekend actually, made the whole week have a holiday feel to it!

Anyway, like your outfit. Comfy but cute. Your hair looks lovely! x

Looks like a great Memorial Day at the park look to me! I love the jeans turned shorts, and of course your kiddos are adorable!

Pink looks great on you! I think we should have a four day work week every week!

Lisa said...

Sounds like a perfect weekend! Last time I tried to make shorts out of some jeans, it didn't go so well but yours look great!

Callie said...

Looks like such a fun weekend. I love your relaxed and casual weekend look. The accessories really polish off the look. Great job turning the jeans into shorts - that a great save on getting the most out of your denim.

Kish said...

Yes, I do like your hair in the first pic! ;) And I like your denim shorts...I did the same to a couple of pairs last summer.

Hiya doll, I shall put the recipe up for the cupcakes as soon as I can, they are so good :))) Hope you have a super day! xx

That WOULD be nice! I am so ready for the weekend!

Well, you know when you think about it the way Wednesday is actually pernounced is W-end-sday, so there is an end in the word so it could count as a weekend, maybe it could be called pre-weekend or mid weekend. Anyway, great job on the shorts, I've tried that with my jeans several times and I can never get it right. I have a bright pink shirt like that I can't remember where I got it, I think I got mine at Target too.

Hello Miss Tiffany, long time no chat. Looks like the student teaching week went well, and I am super excited you are that much closer to landing your dream job.

Erica said...

Your children are darling! and I did the same thing to some jeans the other day. the hem was all torn and ill-fitting, but the waist and thighs fit fine, so chop chop! Made a great pair of shorts.

The Closet Shopper said...

Love that pic of you running with your kids. That color is amazing on you.

xo,
Tracy

Lynne DeVenny said...

The kidlets are totes adorbs!

That's a great idea for shorts.

Laura Go said...

Jean shorts is the perfect solution for holey jeans! I really love pink on you, Tiffany! You rock bright colors like no one else!

Your little ones are so cute and even when playing in the park you're such a styling Mum! Great idea on the jean shorts and I have a friend who uses wed as one of her days off- strange but true!

I've been seeing lots of cut offs and think I need to make a pair soon. Cute look and looks like a great day!

what a fun day at the park...the pink tee and cut off shorts are just perfect for the occasion. This is probably something I would be doing very often with my kids this holiday
