Got That Fifties Feelin'

 Todays weather was much improved from the last dreary week of constant rain and overcast. Taking full advantage of the sunshine and milder temperatures, I donned my newest obsession: High waisted shorts. These are just one of my many new pairs and with their lighter wash and basic denim, give me a feel of the fifties. Also: high waisted shorts are great-so flattering and so comfortable.

shirt and shorts: American Eagle; Shoes: Chinese Laundry
 Not to mention high waisted shorts with some killer heels (mine are from Chinese Laundry) make for some crazy long legs, especially if you wear a crop top, which this one happens to be my first DIY.

 Now listen. I love the new trends as much as the next person but it gets expensive keeping up wiht them, especially because I'm saving for an amazing new camera. I felt this look would not be complete without some slinky layered silver jewelry, but alas, do not have any. However, rather than fret, I chose to be resourceful. I have many short silver necklaces and so formed them together to make one long necklace I could layer.


 I also really badly wanted a crop top for these shorts. Why hide the high waist? I haven't been able to find the right one in stores as of late (though I am transforming one of my fave shirts from seventh grade into one as we speak) and so I took some scissors and turned on my tshirt to make a short, cute, DIY shirt. Hooray!
Hope everyone's had a classy day!
