Strange Plaid Short Sleeved Dress Shirt...How I Love Thee!

So, before we get into an explanation of the title, can I just say the weather lately has been ridiculous?
I mean it's absolutely not winter, it's a sort of odd brown dead spring with sunshine and warmth followed by ridiculous random cold and back to the brown spring warmth...
And did it seriously just rain last night?  
Just enough to encase my car in ice this morning, but by noon, we were able to play in the backyard with just a light jacket...
Anyway...
You're probably wondering about my strange Blog title, but here it is, the strange, short sleeved, plaid dress shirt that I found in the back of Josh's closet...
Josh kindly relinquished the shirt to me for creative transformation and now...
It is a ridiculously cute (if I do say so myself) summer romper for Gigi!
I added a slightly cinched waistline to give it a little shape...
And, because I am all about finding ways to avoid hemming, I utilized the pre-hemmed edging of the shirt for the shorts hem!
The romper is easy to put on and take off by way of the super stretchy elastic neckline...
And I must say it is a vast improvement over the "Dwight Shrewtness" of the actual shirt!
Makes me wish for summer!
Or even an especially warm Brown Dead Springish winter day!
And on a completely unrelated topic, is there anything more attractive than a grown man at a little girls tea party?!!!
Ok, maybe one thing...
Can I get an AWWWWWW?!!!
