High Waisted Pants

Outfit details: H&M pants, Madewell top, ASOS pumps

My love for high waisted pants started with this pair from H&M. It was my senior year of undergrad, and they had brought these out in black, navy, and bubblegum pink. Every year since, I've kicked myself for not picking them up in all three colors. Everything about these pants is perfect - the length, fit, shape, fabric, down to the pleated details and style of the belt.

When I saw the Man Repeller/H&M collaboration on Bloglovin', I immediately thought of these pants and was inspired to write a post featuring them.

While I love whites, brights, and pretty pastels (here and here), 'all black everything' is my usual uniform, so I wore my black sheer, paneled Madewell top. To elevate and elongate the look, I cut the black with my nude ASOS pumps (the highest-heeled pumps I own). I wear the pants sparingly now, though, as I'm afraid I'll wear them out!

We snapped these photos as the sun was setting, next to a pretty little house with the last tulips of the season and petals strewn across the sidewalk. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have spotted a sneak peek!
