a man's shirt... but BETTER!

Today, I bring you a simple little DIY.
Borrowed from my DEAR freind Heather.
She's so inspiring, and so creative, and I couldn't resist sharing this amazing trick with you guys!!
Here is a fun little way to use your man's shirt in a pinch, and make it into a cute little tube top!!

1ST: Button shirt up, except the top two to three buttons, depending on your bra size.
Step into shirt.
2ND: Pull shirt up, like a tube top!

3RD: Cross each arm in front, to create a waist...
or a belted look..
The sleeves may be a little short for you to make a knot in the back, so I used a hair tie to keep it in place!
Then tucked the ends down so that it didn't look "off".
But for most, you'll be able to just do a simple tie/tuck in the back ♥

I styled mine with a cute little cardigan and skinny jeans, but you can do so many different fun looks!
Try it today!
It's SO fun and SO easy!!
