I feel like this outfit makes me look a bit taller than I actually am (5'0). It's something. I'll take it.
I've become completely faithful to high waist bottoms. It's official, we're official. I had a (very brief) conversation the other night about high waist jeans, and this person was pretty solidly against the fit, because, in their opinion, it's unflattering and "everyone looks like they have a camel toe." Okay. Well, no. In my opinion, a high waist is flattering on everyone. Period. Also, it can elongate the legs and make anyone look taller, and that's something fun to play with.
And that's what personal style is about. It's all just an individual's opinion. No one can tell you your style is shit, because if you love it, then it works.
