My Fair Lady: Casual Chic OOTD


Every year I look forward to the County Fair. The food, the rides, the games, the lights... it all makes me feel like a kid again. I love the bright and bold colors that are everywhere you look and the mixture of noises and smells that fill the air.

I did my best to put together an outfit that was cute but comfortable and easy to walk around in all day. High-waisted shorts (and swimwear) are my latest fashion obsession! At first, I wasn't sure about this trend. High-waisted shorts reminded me of "mom shorts" but I quickly got over that and this hip 90's trend grew on me even quicker for many reasons.



First of all, high-waisted shorts do wonders for the figure. They emphasize your real waist, the smallest part of your torso, which has long been lost with low-rise everything! Since these shorts hit at your real waist they also help define your curves and give off a more hourglass silhouette. What's even better is that they make the booty look phenomenal. My main issue with high-waisted shorts is that some girls don't wear them correctly, giving this flattering trend an unflattering reputation.

When shopping for high-waisted shorts you really need to focus on the fit. You want them to fit snug, this will make your waist look smaller and lift your backside better. However, you do not want the shorts to be so snug that you can not breathe or even worse that you are spilling out of them. If your shorts do not cover your butt cheeks-they are too short! It's not rocket science, just common sense and decency. Keep in mind that high-waisted shorts do have the tendency to ride up so opt for a bigger size if you're not sure.

I got my high-waisted shorts here and I purchased a medium for peace of mind and comfort.



I hand made the Red Rose Flower Crown and I sell them on my site: ImHaute.com
Flower crowns are my fave hair accessory at the moment. they are so boho chic and perfect for taming locks on windy days. While you might think this is strictly a Spring & Summer accessory I believe you will be seeing flower crowns in rich bold and dark colors carry through Fall & Winter.
