High Waist Jeans

TURQUOISE SILK TANK - Banana Republic (Thanks, Fierce!)
HIGH WAIST BOOTCUT JEANS - 7 For All Mankind (Thanks, Fierce!)
GREEN(ish) CLOGS - Charles David
SUEDE FRINGE PURSE BELT - Thrifted (Thanks, Mom!)
SILVER AND TURQUOISE - Vintage (Thanks, Mom!)
SQUARE SCARF - Missoni

I was feeling "skinny" today and decided to squeeze myself into another pair of Fierce's jeans (okay, really I've been wearing them around so they've stretched out some... Which sorta reminds me of when I was a kid and I'd save all my money to buy a pair of Guess jeans, then I'd lay down while watching TV and slowly inch the zipper up after each show). 

These are the high waist ones.  Yes, high waist as in totally trendy, though terribly intimidating.  Here is what I know to be true... 

High waist can suck you in like a girdle.  Plus! 
You still got to spill out somewhere.  NOT plus!

Anyway, as long as I can shove a shirt in and balloon it out to hide the spillage I'm okay. 

Fair Isle has been thrifting again and so she gave me some great new belts (thanks, Mom!).  Check out the REAL silver and turquoise belt layered with this amazing suede fringe belt purse!  I'm also wearing a square MISSONI scarf tied around my wrist (and I have an additional NEW one which I'm planning to giveaway next week as a THANK YOU for supporting my blog!  I really hope you'll enter!).

I'm planning to go on a dinner date with Camouflage tonight.  I doubt I'll wear these high waist jeans.  You can only eat so much in a girdle before you get the other kind of spillage.  Wink, wink...And I'm planning on having dessert.

I love the color of this top on you - it looks amazing.

I'm not a fan of high-waisted jeans (they flatten my booty), but you're making me think I should give them another shot.

Love the bright color of that top. You are so funny about the high waist jeans but so true. I will only wear high waist bottoms if I can wear a top over it. They do not display my best assets for sure.
Loving your double belts as well.

I can't stand spillage. Sometimes, I don't even wear jeans like that because of it. I almost always pair it with a flowy shirt.

oh hell no girl! those two belts are fabulous! I love the pochette and the turquoise on the hip belt, super sassy! and you work those jeans, miss lady! they look fabulous on you :) high waisted jeans ARE very scary, but they look amazing, also, they lengthen the legs, which is never a bad thing!

Ashley [Free Honey] said...

I have yet to even try on a pair of high waisted jeans...it just doesn't sound like a comfortable proposition to me....But these seem to fit you really well so yay! And I've totally used a coat hanger to pull up my jeans before - so no judgment here!

xo, Ashley

Khlaren said...

Love your pants! I have some high waisted shorts and I make sure not to use them if I know I'm going to eat out! :)))

High waisted jeans....I never quite feel comfortable in them. It's a bit too high for my taste.
