Is wearing the same old boring clothes in your closet making you sad? Would you like to have new spring clothes, but don’t have money to go shopping? With a little work, and some imagination, you can make your old clothes look new again!
Giselle is going out with her friends. She doesn’t want to wear this same old dress again because she has worn it a LOT, and her friends will probably have new spring clothes.
How can she make her old clothes look new?
1. Dress it up with accessories.
A simple way to make old clothes look new again is with accessories. Giselle added a scarf and belt to totally change her look! She finished it off with a cute pair of boots, and bracelets.
2. Mix and Match
Old clothes feel new when you mix and match them to create an awesome outfit you’ve never worn before! Giselle made this same dress look like a skirt by putting a pink sweater on top. Then she pushed the sleeves back to make it look like short sleeves. Finally, she layered a jean jacket vest on top of everything. Necklaces and Converse finish off the look. No one will even think this skirt is the same dress she wore before!
3. Layer with a sweater, jacket, or vest.
Giselle covered up her dress with a bright orange vest, and added a chunky necklace as an accent. Her roman sandals complete the look. Now Giselle is happy that she can so many different looks with that one dress.
4. Clean it up!
You might have an outfit that looks old or dirty. Sometimes, just tossing it in the washing machine will do the trick. The color will be brighter, it will smell good and the stain from your chocolate ice cream will be gone! Also, you can roll a lint remover over your clothes to get rid of dust, hairs or lint. It’s easy and kind of fun!

They asked me to read a chart
on the wall from far away.
I had to move closer…
and then even closer…
but I still couldn’t read it.
Total fail! I was not able to read the same stuff that my sisters could.
Major bummer right? Well not really cuz glasses are fun, cute, and really helpful.
My dad and I went to my first ever official eye exam. Check it out.

Trying new things can definitely be scary. You might want to try a new hobby or try out for a new team or club, but nervously wonder:
“What if I’m not any good at it? What if other kids laugh at me?”
But here’s why trying new things is totally worth it:
Giselle tried something new and loved it! She says:
“When I tried out for cheerleading in 6th grade I was so nervous and worried about not making the team, but in the end I made the squad and it was the best year ever!” -Giselle
So if you’re feeling fearful next time about trying something new, remember to think positively.
Tell yourself, ‘I can do it!’
You can also take baby steps, like trying new foods or a new book series in your school library you’ve never read before.
So what if you do try something but don’t like it? Don’t feel bad if you realize that the new thing is not good for you.
Be proud and pat yourself on the back for trying something new! Then look for something else new you can try.
