all mixed up

top (eyeing this one)/skirt (Madewell)/shoes (Madewell)/purse (J.Crew, similar)/sunglasses (Prada)/
Ladies, if you don't already have one, go out and find yourself a higher waisted skirt. By "higher waisted" I mean one that covers up (or almost covers) your belly button. This should be a staple item in your closet because 1.) it helps you make use of those cute shirts that are just too short to wear on their own (as I demonstrate here) and 2.) it highlights the waistline and with the right shape can do great things for your bod (or at least appear to.)

  1. Love this spring-y outfit pairing and your subtle pattern mixing. I'm yet to try a high waist skirt...probably because I just don't wear skirts that much! I buy one and think that I'll change...but then I don't. So for now I'll just admire yours. :)

  2. Cute outfit! I really love the pattern and color mixing. The structure of your skirt is just fantastic as well!
