DIY Whitewash Jean Shorts!

I had this old pair of jean shorts that I never wear because they're such a light blue jean color. I hated to throw them out so I thought I'd see what I could do to make them more up to date. I decided whitewashing them would be super easy and make them a cute piece to pair with tops and heels!
I didn't want them completely white so I tied hair ties all over them to give them a semi tie-dye look. Once they were all bundled up, I covered them in one part bleach and one part water. They soaked for about 20 minutes and then I washed and dried them.
See the slight tie-dye detail? Love it. I used to swear that I'd never wear denim on denim. Now I can't get enough of it. Paired with a bold necklace, this becomes a simple summer outfit!
