High Time

Jeans - Old Navy (ages ago), Jacket - F21, Necklace - H&M
One of the trends for Spring that I've been sitting on the fence about is high-waisted jeans. High-waisted jeans are something that probably every curvy girl has feared like the Boogeyman ever since this unflattering photo of Jessica Simpson in high-waisted jeans made such a horrible splash for that poor girl. I love how these jeans look on tall lithe girls though...and I'd always wanted to try them, just to see. Well, apparently I needed to look no further than the back of my closet to fulfill my wish...because I found a pair of high waisted jeans that I bought like five years ago at Old Navy to wear on Fridays to work. And I found that as long as I didn't wear them with a giant leopard print belt and a tight black top, they were more flattering than I expected.


What do you think? I think wearing them with heels and tucking in my shirt made my legs look at least an inch or two longer (whoo hoo!), and I can't wait to pair them with a form-fitting top and no coat when the weather gets warmer to accentuate the leg length. Well, the illusion of leg length anyway. I know I broke every fashion rule out there by keeping a pair of jeans in my closet that I haven't touched in years, but the moral of this story is that sometimes it pays to be a packrat. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it anyway...

Ooooo, that pic of J-Simp hurt my eyes! I agree that her jeans were styled poorly. I'm on the hunt for a pair of high waisted jeans as well. I actually find them more comfortable than the lower cut jeans and I think they help one have cleaner lines when it comes to form-fitting shirts.

Anyway, these jeans look good on you, so you were smart to hold onto them!
