In Bloom

One of my blogger besties, Jen of her waise choice recently blogged about her go-to silhouette.  I love a girl who loves a high-waist (a-line) skirt and fitted blouse combo.  Jen wears this silhouette so perfectly.  The proportions always look so flattering on her.  What can I say, she's a girl with impeccable style!  I'd love to raid her closet, but first I'd have to lose a bajillion lb's.

I too, adore a high-waist skirt and I think it suits my body type quite nicely.  Some may think full circle skirt would only accentuate your curves, but when you find the perfect one, it can do wonders to your shape!   I opted to put together this gorgeous rosette skirt with a looser fitting blouse, and I'm totally happy with the pairing. :)  Btw, did you notice my locks?  I cut off close to 10".  What a load off.  Literally!  Hope you all are having a great week, so far!

Don't you love this ribbon & pearl bracelet?  The lovely Carolina gifted it to me (thanks, love!).  She recently opened up an Etsy shop, L♥VECOCO so check it out and you can get one of these gorgeous bracelets for yourself. 
{blouse: Old Navy | skirt: Free People | shoes: Missoni x Target | purse: Big Buddha | sunnies: Rayban
bracelets: Banana Republic, Wendy Mink Jewelry, LOVECOCO (buy) | watch: Michael Kors | flower brooch: F21}

Love, S

I have such short legs that I am not sure how a high-waisted skirt would look on me. Maybe it would help lengthen me!

The wendy Mink branches bracelet is AMAZING. OMG. I've been lusting after organic jewelry after seeing it day in and day out on Atlantic Pacific.

I like how you pair edgy (rust) with super girly (skirt) and ground it all with your accessories. Really brill, Shar!

with love and aloha, Mae
