I realized some time ago that the high-waisted skirt and tucked-in shirt look was super flattering on me. I don’t know if that’s a universal thing, but since I’m on the shorter side, a high waist makes my legs look longer, so I look taller. And since I have an hourglass figure (but the top of the hourglass is my head, not boobs – still totally counts), tucking in the shirt highlights my small waist instead of my relatively wide hips.

The only problem is that some shirts just do not work when tucked in. This is one of those shirts. Every time I slightly lifted an arm, I pulled the shirt out of the skirt and made myself look droopy and lumpy. It’s a few years too early in my life for that.

The best solution I’ve come up with is tying the shirt in front like this. If anyone knows of a good way to keep shirts tucked in (an undergarment perhaps?) please let me know! I’ll test our your suggestions and report back.

Knotted Chambray & a Mullet Dress

This outfit is from last Saturday, when I ran a couple errands and went out to eat for my bro’s birthday. (Girls can be bros. I looked it up in the Bro Code.)

Last weekend, the temperatures took an unexpected dip so I had this big dilemma over what to wear. It was like nothing in my closet was working for me. I wanted to wear something cute and springy because it was the weekend, but my delicate constitution and lack of meaningful body fat told me I should probably cover up. I get whiney when I’m cold, and nobody wants to deal with that.

For some reason my new jean jacket that I thought would go with everything just didn’t look right with this dress. I looked oddly wide. I’m hoping the jacket and I will reconcile soon, but in the meantime I was able to count on my chambray – tied at the waist of course.

So the moral of the story is: If you don’t know what to wear, just stay home. Or wear something like this. You’re welcome.
