High-Waisted Shorts Two Ways


Hello Cutie Shorts! 

Seriously how awesome are high-waisted shorts?!?  Currently I am into everything high-waisted, pants, bikini bottoms, skirts, you name it I love it.  Is it just the trend or is it the fact that I am getting older? Yep 36 as of a couple of weeks ago, and things just don’t stay hidden like they used to.  Either way, I am in love with these babies.  I snagged them up at Winners for 24.99 and I knew they would go from office, to drinks, to lunch, to shorts on the beach without a beat skipped.  Today I am showing you how I wore them while visiting in Victoria, BC a couple of weeks ago.  If you haven’t been to Fisherman’s  Wharf you are absolutely missing out.  It’s got the cutest little houses on the water, trinket shops, and the best fish and chips around (and this is coming from a girl who doesn’t even like fish & chips).  You can easily walk it from downtown Victoria, in 25-30 minutes, and along the way you get to explore the beautiful walk along the ocean, as well as take in some Victorian sight along the way. 

 

I also wanted to show you how I would dress this outfit up for a lunch date or even a summer evening dinner by adding a chunky necklace by H & B, some heels and a sleek/sexy bodysuit.  Confession Time!  My bodysuit gives me a wedgie.  It’s super annoying.  My solution has been to tuck it in but not button the bottom up.  It still gives me that sleek look I love, without being uncomfortable or picking my butt.  LOL!  

 

What's your favorite summer day to night look?

  2. Love this day to night look and High waisted shorts are such a beauty! They hide the things that I want to stay hidden! I can relate too that now I am closer to becoming 40 (1.5 years countdown!) everything I eat somehow just stays on. It doesn't matter if I work out hard or run or swim, those belly fat are here to stay! Argh. Never fear though right? High waisted everything saves the day! Lol Happy Friday and wishing you a great weekend!

    1. Thank you. Though I have one crop yop, being in my later part of 30 now, I struggle to feel completely confident in a crop top plus it's not really work attire and I am at work a lot πŸ˜‰
