High Waisted: A Girl's Best Friend










Shirt: TJ Maxx, Skirt: La Vie Petite, Shoes: Forever 21

I once heard a rumor that Mariah Carey had her two bottom ribs removed so that she could fit into clothes better...or was it Janet Jackson? On either account, I fit into that category of girls with an extra large rib cage.  Put it this way, in middle school my ribs protruded further than my tatas--and it was cause for some major juvenile teasing. Which may be why I am totally stoked that high waisted skirts are back in. They give me some semblance of a waist and they totally hide the post baby pooch that every old man at church mistakes for a preggo bump, not cool.

Visit La Vie Petite if you want your very own handmade, mustard yellow, pooch-hiding, high waisted, glorious skirt.
I will be linking this outfit up to to:

That arrived so quickly. You look phenomenal. I too have a large rib cage, and when one is short this can be annoying. I am sure you know this. Love all of your cute poses. I may have to save up for the blue and white one or this one. Oh both are awesome.

cute! I belt everything, which is pretty similar... I have huge ribs, too. I once asked my mom if there was a rib reduction surgery and she gave me a speech about how I'd appreciate those ribs when I was hugely pregnant. Which, ok, yes, I did. But I'm pretty sure I spend more time unpregnant. ;)

Ahhhh!!!! LOVE that skirt, and you look gorgeous! I'm a huge fan of high waisted skirts for that reason. Much easier to suck it in up high than the 'ol mommy belly down low :D

Very nice skirt! I like high wasted skirts too, it gives the illusion of longer legs :) (I need all the help I can get.)

Happy Memorial Day!

Enjoy your week,

so stinkin cute!! I have yet to rock the high waist...but you might have just pushed me over the edge with this one! Boo to gigantic ribcages (I didn't think anyone else had this problem!) and phantom preggo bumps (no...it's not a baby...just my dinner from last night)

Thanks for your transparency :)
