2 Way Tuesday - High Waisted Jeans and Stripes

STRIPED TOP - Truelight
HIGH WAISTED JEANS - iT Jeans
RED BELT - Thrifted (Thanks, Mom!)
LEATHER CUFF - Made by my mom
EARRINGS - Heavenly Treasures
BRONZE WEDGES - Steve Madden (Thrifted)
How I wore these jeans earlier this month!
PURPLE TOP - Hot and Delicious
PLATFORM HEELS - Charlotte Russe
Pigtails loves to be clean.  Despite her often messy appearance outside the bath (her hair falls in her face and she usually has food smeared all over), she loves to take a wipe or face towel and sweep it all over herself.  She also can spend hours in the bathtub pretending to "wash" herself.  She tries to squirt out some soap (luckily she can't really do it yet) and then she'll brush her hands all over her body as if she's bathing.  It's hilarious and very entertaining not only for herself but for her parents as well.

Today's "2 Way Tuesday" is a little bit of a cheat because I decided to rewear my high waist jeans.  I know, not super creative but I just felt like squeezing myself in these babies!  I was laughing that I wore the same belt, but oh well.  I bought this striped shirt at a boutique that was closing out (same as that purple top too) and I think it was under $5!  Anyway, I really like these short tops for wearing with high waist stuff, though if high waist goes out of style I won't be wearing these with low waist anything, thank you very much!

Anyway, I better run.  Princess Sparkles has her gymnastics class and I have to clean up the house before some friends come over afterwards.  I guess cleanliness (or at least the appearance of cleanliness) is not just important to Pigtails but for her mommy as well!

Love the high waisted jeans! You can totally rock them. And today is not a cheat. If you love something, wear it to death!

I found a pair of Lucky Brand high waisted jeans at the Goodwill, and I haven't worn any other jeans since then :)

Have fun at gymnastics with Princess Sparkles. We can't wait for gymnastics to start back up in the fall! Have a great day

If I were able to rock high waisted jeans as well as this I would be wearing them left, right, and center too so this is totally not a cheat!

Holy amazing. Those jeans are fantastic on you! I love that you paired red with the purple top, I love red and purple together! That striped top is pretty great too!

Hope you have a fun time with your friends tonight!

I remember that I used to love taking baths when I was younger and would also try to wash myself and get as clean as possible-just like Princess Sparkles! I love these high waisted jeans (I need to get myself a pair) and I really like them with the red belt and striped top!

Claire said...

i likey! I have some high waisted jeans, they are kind of 1940's stylish. I love them :)

M & Em said...

Wow, those jeans are beautiful! I can never seem to find any great wide-leg jeans like that. Yours are perfection! I also really love those diagonal stripes on that shirt. I'm really into stripes lately. Oh, and your daughter sounds absolutely adorable!

I don't wear jeans at all really, but I feel like the only jeans I would consider wearing are high-waisted ones like these! Both of these looks are so classy!

Gracey said...

Oh, I love these on you. I always think I want high-waisted jeans and then I hate them when I get them on. But, you look so fab, I might just have to try again.

I love both of these outfits! You look adorable in them and I love the jeans!

What a joy to have such a little daughter. I would love to go back and sit down with my babies and read a book or play Candyland, but they're all grown up now!

Tara said...

Those stripes are super cute...and I'm pretty sure it doesn't count as cheating if both outfits look great. There's got to be a fashion rule about that somewhere... :(

Punctuation Mark said...

I love those jeans! Hope you're having a great week! So I asked my brother about the word Benny (he lived in Hawaii for 2 years) and he hadn't heard of it either! Oh well! I did appreciate everyone ending their sentences with "yeah?" or "bra!" hehe!

Mrs. J said...

Both looks are wonderful, but the first one gives me a FLY 70's vibe.
I need a pair of high waist jeans in my life right now! :)

Well worn! High waisted jeans can be tricky, but you look great!

amy b.s. said...

love the way the high waisted jeans look! i'm not sure i could pull them off so well!

Bonnie said...

I think you are my blogger friend who can rock high-waisted pants the best. You always, always, always look amazing in them, and I am so jealous.

I hope that your Princess enjoys gymnastics class better than I did when I was a kid. They made us go for school, and the people were really mean. They would put their feet on our backs when we did push-ups to make sure that we went all the way down. This was before BEAST MODE, and I was a tiny runt of a kid, so it was hard for me! I told my mom, and she pulled me out of the class.
So I hope that doesn't happen.
That story was completely pointless.

you really pull off the high waisted jean look well!

Shea said...

I'm glad you're wearing those jeans again--I love them so! They look great with the stripes too, and I love the little bit of bronze shoe peeking out!

Good hygiene can never start too early. Good for Pigtails! I really like the hot mama striped off the shoulder look. Smokin'
