Arrows Pointing Up!

I am feeling very put together today...







Skirt-Anthropologie/Sweater-JCrew/Boots-Loft/Jewelry-H&M, JCrew, Baublebar

I have never been a fan of high waisted pants or skirts...but I think this skirt has converted me.  The waistband of the skirt hitting me higher on the waist accentuates that I might just actually have a waist... ingenious!!  Next step...high waisted jeans...must just have to try...!  The last few times I have worn this skirt I have styled it up with a black blazer or cardi, but today I thought I would try the mustard yellow/brown zipper cardi...I think the color goes well wit the neutrals in the skirt!  I am madly in love with my new necklace from Bauble Bar...#2 from last weeks order...chunky with gold and silver speckles...perfection!  I feel great today in this outfit...it is amazing what a high waisted skirt and some new jewels can do for your confidence...that and a good nights sleep and two cups of coffee..!

I love this outfit too! Prob one of my favs I have seen on you in a while! The high waisted skirt with a cardigan on top is one of my favorite tricks for creating the appearance of a waistline.

Not only am I a huge fan of high-waisted anything, and of mustard-colored anything, but I am also a fan of both of these on YOU. See, your waist looks so cute and you do look very put-together!

I didn't even notice that this was high-waisted - but now that you mention it...nope still can't really tell. What I CAN tell, though is that you look great! I like the mustard color with the skirt because it's NOT so neutral.
