jumping on board.



top:: {navy exchange}
shorts:: {c/o lulus}
flats:: {c/o lulus}

So, what's the verdict on high-waisted apparel? At first all I could think about was granny panties... but now I think I'm totally on board. Since I got these shorts in the mail from Lulus, I've been wearing them pretty much non-stop, so I think I may be drinking the high-waisted trend juice. And it tastes good. There is something so flattering (even on a post-baby belly!) and even elegant about them. This outfit is ridiculously simple, yet it felt much more put together than just my regular shorts and tank. 

I have my eye on a few pairs of high-waisted bikini bottoms on ASOS, but have yet to bite the bullet. It's probably my indecisiveness-- polka dot, floral or solid with ruching?? We're headed back to Hawaii over Christmas (!!!), so a bright floral might be the winner.  

What do you think-- big fat no, or are you ready to jump on board too?

    1. usually I am the same with trends - I don't usually jump on board right away and I don't jump on board with ALL trends. High waisted pants are an example of a trend I most likely won't jump on board with - my shape isn't suited to it either - I'm a curvy petite girl with a short torso. Looks great on Lindsay though!

  2. These look so great on you! I like the trend in itself, but its not one I could pull off because I have a major pear-shape and high wasted-tucked in combos make my torso look scrunched. I agree that it is wonderfully flattering on the right body type!

  3. The high waist in these printed shorts is subtle and very lovely on you! I love it :)You wear the trend well, in a way I never could! My body is completely shape-less, so I would look terrible in anything high waisted. And you should totally go for the bikini! ;) xo

  6. I think I'd have to try something high waisted on before I could give a verdict.

    P.S. Your hair is GORGEOUS.

    1. Definitely try something on, Krysten! You may fall in love! Or try a few things on-- everything is made and fits differently, ya know?

  7. Yes! The high waist thing covers up some persistent belly fat that just won't go away.

    1. Ah, thanks! You totally should! I'm always on the 'chop it off' side of the vote. I love having short hair and always think it looks awesome on others!

  12. Those shorts are adorable on you! I personally only like high waisted skirts on myself but maybe that's because it takes me a while to jump on board trend trains. You're gorgeous, though. :-)

    1. Yeah, skirts are much easier to pull off that high-waisted thing. I love a good high-waisted skirt! Thanks Susannah! xo!

  15. Like everyone has said - your hair looks awesome! Might you consider posting a picture of the back of it (even just on Instagram)? My stylist makes the front look great, but can't seem to get the back the way I want it!
