high life

{ What I Wore: J.Crew pineapple tee // Old Navy utility vest (similar) // hi-waisted jeggings c/o American Eagle // ShoeDazzle gold wedges // Yuni Kelley necklace }
I am a lover of many styles of jeans - boyfriend, bootcut, skinny, colored, distressed & bell-bottoms. But the one style that is closest to my heart? The highwaisted cut.
I think this style is crazy comfortable, not to mention very flattering on many body types.
Oh & the fact that this particular style is just tempting me to try one of the ever so popular crop-tops around these days is just icing on the cake!
It has been years since I last purchased a pair of American Eagle denim, but this pair is just as soft & comfy as I remembered.  
Regardless of how high the temperatures rise, jeans are still a staple in my closet. A pair of high waisted jeggings that let me dress them up with a knotted graphic tee, piled on necklaces & metallic shoes will always be a workhorse in my Summer wardrobe. Comfort meets good-looking functionality!
I am thrilled to be a part of AE's Bloggers Do it Better Series today! This installment features their high-waisted jeggings.
See how my fabulous blogging friends wore it too:

  4. I love high-waisted jeans! They're really much more flattering on me than low-cuts and how wonderful is it that I always feel like they are in place?!

  8. When I saw the title I thought maybe it meant you were high when you wore this. I mean look at your face in that first pic...you look a little too chill. But I'm thinking that's probably not the case. Either way I really love the outfit, duuuuuude.

    Thanks

  18. They do have quite a bit of stretch, but I ordered my regular size (4/27) & am happy with how they feel comfortable but hold everything in a little bit too! Happy Shopping!

  34. YES! I definitely need more high-waisted jeans. I hate the muffin-top effect that most other jeans give me. I just got new jeans for Christmas so I'm hesitant to buy any more for a while but when I do, they'll all be high-waisted for sure!

    By the way, those jeans look so good on you!

  40. so, AWESOME that you got to partner with AE! That's the stuff that my high school dreams were made of, ha! I definitely have not purchased a pair from there for a while either, but I'm intrigued by these. Worth a try on, I'd say! I'm a huge fan of graphic tees since forevvvs so I'm desperately still trying to find ways to still make them look cool, I love one tied up like this with high waisted jeans!

    Oh and to answer your question: I'm trying to pay my rent, so no I haven't been to H&M Nashville yet! Ha!
