How to Rock High-Waisted

I really cannot over emphasize how happy I am that high waisted has come back in and stayed in. For someone who tried to get her hands on some high-waisted pants before they were sold in stores it was a real struggle. 

First it was jeans - and now it's everything and I'm so jazzed. 

Joanna and I both found some fall transitional pieces that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

High-waisted shorts are a great way to dress up an outfit while still beating the heat. I can wear these to weddings, a meeting, or even a party. I can also dress them down depending on the occasion with a simple tee or dress them up with a collared shirt. 

For fall layer with a sweater or add tights and booties. Whichever way you decide to wear them these high-waisted shorts can be a year round staple. 

My favorite part about these shorts is the tie in the front. It gives it great dimension without actually holding my pants up.

Joanna has a knack for thrifting. It also helps that she gets to thrift in the best places in the midwest when she goes home to visit her family. 

These green high-waisted pant was a thrift find but there are a lot of new options that mimic the look of these pants. 

Since Joanna spends her fall roaming the halls of NC State University she needs a look that says student but also is respectable for when she puts on her teaching hat.

These pants are light-weight, perfect for working in hot offices during the fall and winter, but also lightweight enough to wear during the summer. Pair with a sweater, linen shirt, or blouse for a myriad of looks.
