My Nautical Waist

Navy, Red, Natural Waist

Last week a client and I shared a wonderful a-ha moment when we discovered that her skirts look best when they are sitting higher than usual, on her natural waist. It’s a beautiful day when you find the clothing that makes you feel lighter and happier, and sometimes that involves discovering long-ignored body parts! I was so inspired by waist-flattering outfits, I thought I would give it a go myself with this nautical skirt I found at Last Call a while back…

In other news, I am going to be traveling next week, and I have been so busy getting my life together (lots of exciting changes over here at TB), that the blogging has been on the back-burner. I am looking forward to borrowing the cameraman’s laptop and having a little bit of airport free-time to blog and finally catch up on all my reading. Plus, I can’t wait to share with you some posts about packing a suitcase and what to wear to your college reunion! Also, I can’t wait to be done packing my suitcase, and to figure out what the hell I am going to wear to my college reunion…

    I try to wear skirts at my natural waist, makes my curves look a whole lot less bulky. You look great as usual! I love the nautical look.

    i’m a huge contender of wearing skirts higher (and belts too, for that matter!) it was a good day in my world when i discovered that years ago!

  5. You look so cute and really in love with that skirt!! I have a short torso so sometimes high waist skirt didnt flatter me, it depends on the cut I guess, anyway have fun with your trip and YES I do need tips on how to pack and unpack!! I’m going on vacation in a month and seriously need to have this lesson learn before I go on binge shopping LOL

  6. A-line skirts with a natural waist look best on me & so do dresses that nip in at the waist — good stuff. Love this top you have one & your necklace. Enjoy all your upcoming travelling!
