Hey Tomboys! Happy Pride! What’s PRIDE if not an excuse to be actively inactive and celebrate being fabulous?!
I don’t know if it’s because I went to a woman’s college or what (shout out Randolph-Macon Woman’s College), but I love crafting activities with friends. And, I also like fun parties with close friends. This year I have my eye on tie-dying a pair of jean shorts to get into the PRIDE spirit. Tie-dying your own shorts is a great way to get some beers chilled, some friends over, and fire up the grill. Sometimes fashion isn’t about the choices you make, but the lifestyle that comes with it. And don’t think I don’t notice your sexy arms as you take command of that grill. TOMBOY.
Dannng! A tomboy made that chicken!! So what are you waiting for? Calling all tomboys and their tomgirls to have a pre-pride Tie-dye (it rhymes!) party to dip shorts into some paint for some DIY lovin’. Think of it as the color run but with more beer and less exercise. In other words, pridefection.
First off, ignore the fact that the above are booty shorts. The Internet loves some short-short options so we’re gonna have to forge our way like we are a band of tomboys heading up the rainbow Oregon Trail. Simply grab some beat up jeans and follow the directions starting with cutting off your jeans at knee length.
Here’s a video from POP SUGAR to get you started on a step-by-step explanation of how to tie-dye your shorts. If you want to add studs and all that, go for it, but this’ll give you an idea of what you’re getting into when you go to Home Depot to help you feel like you will successfully pick up chicks again one day, and also to buy tubs for your party and your beer:

And if you find that you aren’t crafty or adventurous or like people and want some Rainbow Tie-Dye shorts custom made with a quickness, here’s an Etsy store dedicated to sending over custom waisted denim shorts, just in time for PRIDE.
Happy Pre-Pride Tie-Dyke! Even if you don’t end up sporting these to watch your favorite parade, you’ll have fun making this rainbow a tradition. Jump in the bins, tie-dye your girl, I dare you. Enjoy the day! And oh yeah, invite me!
In all things Tomboy,
