I am loving the dressier shorts trend that I have been seeing everywhere. While I love a good pair of denim cut-offs (splurged on this pair and the fit is amazing!), I do enjoy dressing up even for my every day life. It's how I have always been even back in high school. I remember showing up to bowling one night with friends and everyone was in jeans and t-shirts, but I was wearing plaid trousers, a cute turtleneck, a chunky sweater and high heeled loafers. My friends never even batted an eye when I walked in because it was nothing new to them. Ha! 

Fast forward to today where I work from home running my blog and YouTube channel which is very different than my previous corporate life that I had for many years, yet I still love wearing dressier pieces when I head out of the house. Whether for a meeting, a local event, lunch with a friend, an appointment or just to go to the grocery store - I love to dress up. And since shorts are typically such a casual look, I am gravitating towards many of these high-waisted styles that are more elevated than cut-offs. This striped pair has the most flattering shape yet are still incredibly comfortable. I've shared before that I hate tucking things in so button down shirts come in so handy because I can tie them up and that solves the problem. Sadly this little trick will only work with high waisted things, but at this point almost my entire wardrobe is high waisted so I don't normally have to worry about it. I can't even remember wearing mid-rise things or even *gasp* low-rise. Eek!
