is this a mistake?




So I did it. Yesterday I bought my first pair of high-waisted shorts. They are very simple, dark denim with a buttoned-cuff. Why do I say first pair? I don't think I will have a need for more than one pair of these in my wardrobe. I am certainly nervous but I think paired with a simple tank or ruffly, feminine top, they could possibly work. My boyfriend seemed a bit skeptical when he came home and saw me sitting on the front porch with them on, but he'll come around. Above are a cute pair I found on Urban Outfitters and a picture of the loveliest girls ever, one of which has absolutely no problem pulling off this trend.

I have been contemplating getting high waisted shorts/pants too. Let me know how it goes.

I got a really cheap pair just to try it out and I have actually really loved them. I've found the easiest thing to wear with them is a really feminine top or tank so that I don't feel like I'm trying to be so trendy, but it looks more vintage. I say go for it, plus you could probably find a pair for a great sale price now. Let me know if you do!
