River Deep, Waist High

I'm so happy to be back and kicking in my heels.  I was sick of wearing tennis shoes and flat boots to work every day.  My ankle has healed up quite nicely, thanks to lots of ice and exercise.  I've been hitting the gym hard lately and it has really been boosting my mood.  I love getting back to my treadmill and Zumba classes!  It also helps me feel better in these high-waisted jeans.  I know lots of women wouldn't touch high-waisted trousers with a 10 foot pole, but I am not one of them.  I'll usually try any trend once, and this is one that I embraced a few years ago and still love to rock from time to time.
Top: Banana Republic
Jacket: Banana Republic
Jeans: American Eagle
Shoes: Mossimo
Belt: thrifted

What is your favorite trend right now?

I actually like high waisted pants too! I only own 1 pair, but because I have such a long torso they're just higher than I should actually be wearing. It's really nice to once in a while not worry if your bum is hanging out.

Wow, they look fantastic on you! Really, not everyone looks good in them! My favorite trend is probably over the knee socks and legwarmers..it works so well with this freezing weather;)

Love these high waisted pants on you! I've yet to try them on but I'm dying to get a pair myself! My current favorite trend... over the knee socks! I seriously can't get enough :P

I cannot wear high waisted pants, but you look incredible in them! Your hair is so striking, Kinsey! And I love it in contrast with your belt. I also adore your monochromatics, again. We're like monochromatic twinsies. Not today, though. I look like a lumber jack!

My favorite trend is probably tunic length tops, which is weird because I'm so petite, but I love them. I don't know why.

Oh my gosh, this is so cute!! I love a high waist actually! And I love the top and the jacket, and the belt is just perfect! Great shoes too! Haha, Oh, and thanks for the comment today, I'll tell you what, I'll trade outfits with you! I love this one! As for current trends, I'm enjoying a lot of the over the knee socks and colorful tights!! And again, fabulous outfit! :)

Those jeans are so flattering! You look great!

Love your outfit! I think I need high waisted jeans now!

I love that third photo - so 70s! I also love the flare on the leg of the pant. I wouldn't have even thought of these as high-waisted! haha. I've been wearing "Mom jeans" for a while - low-riders just never ever worked for me. I also love the coordination between the belt and your hair :) Very cute Kinsey!

I haven't tried it out, but I like the idea of jumpsuits circa 1970s. In the style of Farrah Fawcett. I do my blog reading (and most of my posting) via my phone, so the pics are always small. From afar it looked like you had on a jumpsuit. Those jeans rock! Or rather, you rock those jeans!

What a great pair of jeans! They fit perfectly and the wide leg really elongates you. And I have to say your red hair is beautiful!

Whoaaaa Kinsey, the pictures look sooo cool. You look like a redhead lol! Anyways, I was gonna say that Jessica Simpson couldn't pull them off but you definitely did. :D
