Up Where We Belong

You have the song in your head already. You know the one. The Will Jennings Song from An Officer and a Gentleman. It's going to be in your head all day. You're welcome.

I am of course referring to the royal we in up where we belong...and by we I mean our. And by our I mean our waistbands. They belong UP HERE. Can I have a hallelujah for the return of higher waistbands? Louder, I can't hear you. (I'm in the Highlands, remember?)

Seriously, let's look at these for a second. I'm not talking about your front-pleated, poochy-crotchal-regioned, flat-asstic-Mom-jeans kind of high waistbands. I'm simply referring to a nice, respectable flat-fronted waistband that sits on your natural waist, that actually feels comfortable, hides a multitude of sins, and that doesn't show off 6 cm of crevasse derrière every time you sit down. Thank God. Finally. Plus, higher waistbands = longer-looking legs. See? I'm actually only 5'2".

Okay, that's a total lie. But still. Higher waistbands people. Check them out. Set yourselves free.

  1. Great looking shorts, Kristin. And amazing legs! xo

  2. Love the pattern of the shorts. Great look!



  3. Love the shorts. Also, I hereby nominate you for the best legs in the blogosphere:).

  4. I'm jealous of your long gams. Looking very Jackie O here.


  5. Yeah, your legs are killer! I'm 5'2" and I do not wear shorts well. I may have to try the high waistband 'trick'.

  6. A delicate, soft, beautiful and attractive look. Shorts are beautiful, with a nice waist design, and printing, and fabric wonderful. The headscarf is great. A fantastic look.

  7. Thank goodness. I could never understand the low waistband thing. So uncomfortable I spent my day trying to hitch them up on the very few occasions I bought a pair of trousers which fitted below the waist only because I could not find any other option a few years ago.

  8. Couldn't agree more! I've always loved the high waist very chic. & great legs btw 😉

  9. Beekeeper that I am, I LOVE the earrings! Can't wait to hear more. . .

  10. Wow! What a great summer outfit! Love the scarf in your hair and those shorts are so unique. I sure wish I had your legs!

  11. I recently bought a pair of high-waisted black jeans, and I am a total convert! I purchased them from a small boutique, and I keep nudging them to carry them in every color of the rainbow. I'll buy them, I swear! Lower rise jeans cut me at my widest part and always give me a muffin top. Hallelujah for higher waistbands! Your look is so spunky and cute. Love all the special touches on those shorts. You show off those legs!

  12. Kristen you look very Grace Kellyish! :)
