Not Going Out Like That

Eliminate the Negative


Recently I became obsessed with anything high-waisted and went on a hunt for high-waisted skirts and pants (can’t really rock the high-waisted shorts). I found this skirt both in black and white at Express – a store I never shop in. Maybe it was those dang Dove sketches or just being mature enough to focus on the positive, but one of the things I love about my body is my small waist. After two kids, I am very lucky to have a flat stomach and a small waistline. So what better way to accentuate that than with some high-waisted skirts ? Although the sweater I am wearing is covering up the very top of this skirt, the waist on it goes over the belly button and would be perfect with a slighty cropped top. I also love the unexpected pairing of black and brown together. What about you ? What part of your body do you love ?

PS – the title of this post is a song lyric that starts with “you’ve got to, accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative” … great advice for life on the whole.

  1. Simple but lovely colour combo and I think your boots tie your outfit together perfectly! And yes it definitely shows off your small waistline 🙂 The Dove sketches got me thinking as well, and while it is so easy to be critical (especially as a style blogger posting pics of yourself online for the world to see), accentuating the positive and eliminating the negative are so important! I love my smile and try to show it off whenever I can.

  2. Love your outfit, I think is chic and cute. I would totally wear it:)
