Lookbook: It's High Time

Top: Madewell // Jeans: BDG // Necklace: Violet's Blue // Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita // Purse: Kate Spade

I remember a time when high-waisted bottoms were dreadfully unfashionable.  I wouldn't have been caught dead in anything less that the lowest of low-rises.  And subsequently, spending half my life making sure I wasn't exposing too much to the world.  When these mid-rise/high-rise came back on the market, I thought no way am I ever going to wear those "mom jeans."  

On this matter (and many, many more), I stand corrected.  Guess what?  Low rise pants are not comfortable.  And these hips that don't seem to be going anywhere, fit much better in something that sits higher on the waist.  It's slimming and hides all the bits I want to hide.  This little discovery led to to high-waisted leggings, skirts, shorts, swimsuits, etc.  I think it will be a happy and lasting relationship.

PS--one more word: magnolias.
