High-waisted Shorts

Ok so do you all ever read those guides that give you suggestions on what you should wear for your body shape?  I do, or did, until I kept reading that some of my favorite looks are not suggested for curvy and petite me.  High on the list of no-no's for moi...high-waisted anything.  

They always say that for petite and curvy gals you should shy away from high-waisted bottoms.  I mean....I get it.  High-waisted items are usual very curve hugging and can sometimes make you look shorter.  If you have a little more love up top, they can accentuate that curve.  But I simply love them.  I love that "vintage" look, and I love that you don't see high-waisted anything as often.  I also love that you can see my waist, which can somtimes get gobbled up in my curves.  So I will keep on keeping on with the high-waisted.  Anything items that you sometimes choose to wear despite what the fashion lords are telling us?  Happy Monday...J

    1. Ash...don't even get me started on the cuffed jeans. They are a staple in my winter wardrobe...and I will wear them probably when I am no longer young and hip enough to do so, I love them that much:)

    1. Ashley...thanks for the outfit love. I will say this shirt is linen, also, so it works well in the heat:)

  6. I hat that the lists say high waisted doesn't flatter the petite figure. I beg to differ. I love high waisted, if anything I feel like it elongates my body and makes me look taller. I hear you on ignoring these rules and tips, sometimes they're not always accurate!

    1. Ok...glad that someone else petite feels like the high waisted can elongate your frame and make you look taller. I have always felt that way, but wondered if it was just wishful thinking!!

  7. You are darling in high-waisted shorts! I like wearing my boyfriend jeans + oversized button downs which probably makes my petite frame look like it is being eaten by fabric, but I love it anyways!
