Summer Trend: High Waisted Shorts + Crop Top

Alert, alert! High waisted shorts are making a comeback!

These particular shorts are from Topshop, and I got them three years ago while I was in London. If I wanted to go all hipster I’d say I was wearing these before they were cool – which I was – but I won’t. ;P I genuinely love high-waisted shorts and what they do to a girl’s figure, and I wouldn’t trade this gorgeous waistband for a low rise one, ever.

These guys running the games seemed to love my shorts too! :P

People looked at me like I was crazy for wearing these heels, but carnivals are just so much fun to photoshoot at! One photographer actually started following us around like a stalker. It’s a different story if he’d said hi or asked to take a pic, but he was hiding around the games and would start walking away when I looked at him, then point his camera at me when I turned away! Creeeeepy.

What I love about this outfit is that it’s so effortless. Just two pieces: a crop top and shorts, yet it looks so fun and flattering. It’s so comfortable and moveable, perfect for this hot summer weather.
