I’m so obsessed with these ASOS high waist jeans. There’s a little more to love in my middle section, and high waist pieces are great for masking that. I’ve had the vision for this look in my head for a long time, but it kept getting shifted off the editorial calendar to make way for other things. But when I reached out to my blogger boos Joi and Ivory about doing a ‘style challenge’ and we settled on denim, I knew it was time to put my vision together.

I headed up to L.A. on Amtrak to shoot this look. They’re both based there, and I’ve been wanting to spend some time there since I’ve moved to SoCal. We went to the arboretum in Pasadena with the hopes of catching some of their gorgeous peacocks strutting into our pics for the ultimate glam moment. Didn’t happen. But we did get some amazing shots of each of our looks!

You know I’m not one to shy away from cop tops, and this Rue107 piece was exactly the look I was going for. Off the shoulder action and sexy high waist jeans? Heyyyy boo! I finished the look with a couple of new acquisitions, both from Nordstrom. I left my favorite fedora in Hawaii, but luckily I found this one which, I must say, I like even better. I hadn’t intended on this Rebecca Minkoff envelope clutch, but it was calling my name and was perfect for completing the look.

After we wrapped up at the arboretum, we had a late lunch and did a little window shopping before I needed to head back. I’ve met some amazing women blogging over the past few years, these two ladies being one of them. Hopefully we’ll do some more projects together!

    i’m loving them on you and they shirt is just too cute!. how do they run? they look stretchy. I am obsessed with high waist skinny jeans I am just on a lookout for a cute pair now I have three to buy. I always have sizing issues with ASOS but I am going to give it a try.

    Thank you!!! These have a bit of stretch but not a lot. I bought my size in these jeans and they were fine, but then another pair I bought didn’t fit properly so I understand. But the good thing about ASOS is free shipping, free returns!! xox
