Chinos are not just for weddings and family photos. All those fun colors, I mean why not rock them all year? So before you put them in the hand-me-down pile because they are starting to look like highwaters or the knees are worn out, just alter them!
ALTERED NO. 2: THE CHINO CHOP (or cuff)
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
pair of chinos
scissors or fabric shears
1. Gather your supplies.
2. Cut to desired length, fray the ends. (washing will do the trick too!)
3. Trim any super long threads.
Note: Of course this will work with any type of pant, not just chinos. If you are hesitant about chopping, try the cuff…just fold each leg up twice.

Look at this sweet shared room! I had to show you all since I was just discussing whether to move the boys together in one room or not. My long time internet, instagram, tumblr, mom friend, Amber of Eva & Owen and her family just recently moved, they live in Brisbane, Austraila. I think she did an awesome job creating a space for her little ones, Eva and Owen. Love that rug! Read what she says about their room…
