Hi-Low Can You Go

As much as I love clothes, I rarely buy items with incredibly 'trendy' touches. I think part of it is I buy so many thrifted pieces, I don't even think about trying them out. 

I just bought my first top with a 'bold' zipper down the back, and am still adjusting to looking like I was put back together by Humpty Dumpty's backup crew. I made an attempt with a pleated hi-low skirt, and I think due to my height, or really lack thereof, I just looked like I put the skirt on in a rush, leaving it two different lengths. 

I suppose if I wore it with sky high heels or wedges it would work, but I also suppose that the skirt would look even sillier on someone laying flat on their face. That's exactly where I would end up if I tried to wear anything sky high. 

Nature clearly recommended that I stay low to the ground, and I plan to do just that. 

But, I did venture into the world of hi-low tops. I now own two, and although I have to fight the urge to tuck the back in, I like the effect. I tried it out with pants first, as I wasn't sure if it would too long for shorts. Turns out, it's not. And thank Heavens, because I absolutely cannot wear pants past 80 degrees here. 

In this heat, give me skirts or give me death.

Also, don't forget about the $50 Shabby Apple giveaway!

  2. The floral print is so cute on that top! I too switch to shorts when it's that hot out, I don't know how other people wear pants. I'm sweating just looking at them :)

  3. This floral top is awesome, I just love the colors. Those green jeans look amazing on you. I am with you though, when it's hot out, I can't even be near a pair of pants.

  8. I don't think I could pull off the high-low skirt trend either, partially because I haven't found a piece that looks flattering on me, and partially because I'm afraid of looking at myself in 10 years and go "what was i thinking?!" But high-low shirts I can do..love that they help cover my be-hind :-)
