Make your pair of shorts look extra lovely by painting a starry night upon them!
I just love those beautiful starry nights, I could look at it for hours... So it inspired me to decorate this pair of blue jeans. And yep, that's the Sleeping Beauty Castle on the backside ;)

There's a label saying "Mojito" on the inside, a pretty unknown brand I guess. These are actually a pair of cheap jeans which I bought at a local store ;) Xx
