High-Waist Denim: A Casual Elegance

Donned in American classics, I spent some time at my local Flower Mart over the weekend in search of a few new bouquets

Choices, choices, choices...  3 city blocks of wholesale flowers and plants.  I was there all morning trying to decide. 

At least getting dressed was a cinch.

To beat the morning chill, I threw on my soft, thick fur vest.  One of the most worn pieces I've ever sewn. 
I chose a pale blue oxford shirt tucked tightly into a fun new pair of high-waist denim. 

I thought it would be fitting to have a classic half-up-do hairstyle to coordinate with my high neckline and casual, western but feminine ensemble.

I love borrowing Theo's cognac hued croc leather belt.  It's regal and classic.  Perfect for high-waist bottoms of any kind. 
And with these new jeans, I swooned over the combo in both texture and color!
I longed for some short cowboy booties but that would've been overkill.  To keep the style fluid but unexpected,
I decided to top off the look with tan leather cage sandals.  One of my faves.

After all that contemplating, I ended up with two cute little plants.  A succulent and some mini cactuses.  They will look adorable on our nightstands!

I am so enjoying my new high-waist jeans.  There's a strong sense of rugged class and elegance to this type of fit
Looking in the mirror and seeing a nicer shape and longer legs, I'm like, 'Hey girl'.

Enjoy your weekend!
