around here

It's been a nasty, rainy, put-on-your-PJs-as-soon-as-you-get-home kind of week. We even experienced a traumatizing snowstorm here in North Carolina:

And while I'm all about staring out the window thinking deep, introspective thoughts, I'm glad for the sun to be back out.

In other news, I recently bought my first pair of high-waisted pants. In all honesty, I thought high-waisted pants were totally ridiculous until I actually tried them on.

I really didn't want to like them. I wanted to rebel against the fashion world, but they grew on me, darn it. And they completely disguise the fact that I have an awkwardly long torso paired with awkwardly short legs. Where have these been all my life?? Also, the pair I got is black, so they kinda sorta totally make me feel like Olivia Newton John in Grease.

This is one of those days where I truly have nothing of interest to say, so let me direct you to something worth reading.

  1. I love your find of high waisted pants, I always try to like them but they just never work on my 5'2 frame. I would love to own a pair of light wash high waisted jeans but alas I cannot.

    and those are some seriously great post finds, thanks for sharing them!

  2. Fun! I"ll have to check out those links!

  3. I was so hesitant with high waisted pants too - then I tried on a pair of Not Your Daughter's in black and fell in love! Totally Olivia Newton John :)
