Trends: High Waisted Shorts

Summer Trends: High-Waisted Shorts

It’s no secret that I love a high waist! Though this style can be a little intimidating at first – once you start wearing things above your belly button – it’s hard to go back.

Flattering, comfy and oh-so-retro looking, the “hike ’em up” trend has now spread to shorts as well! If you’ve been hoping to give the fit a try, check out these finds and give the look a try.

Item of the Week: Catch the Wind

We’re in the midst of another heat wave and I can’t bear to think of wearing anything thick, long or tight when the temps are this high. So when picking the “Item of the Week” the choice seemed obvious: my Catch the Wind blouses.

These tops are revamped from vintage lightweight tops and are transformed to give each one a unique and modern twist. Some have reconstructed hemlines while others have chunky zippers sewn in. And then there’s a slew with my hand pulled screen-prints.

No matter which style or color catches your eye – one thing’s for certain: The billowy fabric and loose fit will keep you from swooning in the sun.

Trends: Neon Florals

The weather is warm, the season is right and I’m seeing neon patterns every which way I turn! I’m loving the neo-floral prints I’ve been spotting on blogs, etsy and beyond. I’m not usually a fan of the style – but something about turning them on their head with neon hues makes them cutting edge and worthy of my devotion. So if you’ve feared looking like a sofa, try out one of these looks to take this trend for a spin.
