My Perfect Pair of High Waisted Shorts

It has taken me over a year to find the perfect pair of high waisted shorts and I have finally found them!  I picked them up at H&M around Christmas time and have been sporting them under tights and leggings.

I think the main thing that makes these shorts perfect is the pleats.  Right where any other shorts would show some tummy bulge...there they are...some beautiful pleats.  The bow also helps draw your eye up to my waist which helps. 

I also found some high waisted black flowy pants the same day but have yet to be hemmed and I am on the lookout for a high waisted jean.  But that whole tummy hiding thing has made it a tricky find.

My ten cents for the day?  If you want to wear a certain trend, find a version that flatters your body.  It might take awhile but it is worth it to always look your best.  And like so many things right now in this second week of January, I am clearing out my closet, home, life, etc. of all the clutter and trying to only keep around the things I love. 

Simplify, simplify, simplify. 

I have been a busy girl...painting things...reorganizing...I will be back soon with updates to all my little projects.  But the blog has to get put on the back burner in order to finish blog worthy projects!  :)

And a note about H&M...they tend to run their sizes small so don't cry if you have to buy a size two sizes bigger than normal.  We all have to.  Well, at least I do.  It is about the fit and not the number on the tag.  Mmmkay?

  1. Super cute!! I'm not sure if I could do the pants though, not that brave. :)

  2. They look really good on you, I love the eclectic mix of the tights with them. In my case, I've come to realized that shorts from Anne Taylor loft look best on me so I stick to them (of course bought on sale *wink*)

  3. I love the look! Excited to see the details of your reorganizing! :D

  4. love the pants, but you need to use only nylons, show those legs you have!

  5. btw, love H&M and forever 21, Forever has jeans for 10 bucks, can't beat that

  6. Love the shorts and LOVE the thrifted top. FAB!

  7. their sizes run smaller I think becuase they use the European labels.

    super cute shorts!

  8. I know what you mean about wanting to show off the waist but hide the tummy buldge. I have fallen in love with high-waisted, a-line skirts for this very reason!

    You look fab by the way :)
