high waist mama

I have a thing for high waist pants.  I think it might all lead back to the fact that my earliest memories of my mother involve her wearing platform heels and go-go boots, or high waist trousers and jeans.  I’m obsessed with all those things.

Minus the go-go boots.  I’ve never really gotten into those.

Anyway.  Here are some of my favorite finds from Pinterest this week.  Enjoy!

  1. Sarah :

    Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

    Oh boy…not a fan. These would never suit me. High-waisted pants suit tall, leggy women with lithe waists. Look at the women in those photos. They look great in those high-waist pants because they have the body type for them. Sorry, didn’t mean to be a kill-joy :-/

    • Allison :

      You’re harshing my mellow Joanne! No, I’m kidding. I totally feel you. I’m not straight up and down myself.

      • Joanne :

        Allison, thy are lovely pants and if I were a size 8 I’d probably get a pair but as a size 14 and a J.Lo butt, um, I’ll pass ;)

  3. Kim Ross :

    Yeah I agree, I love them too but they are not for me. I am very short, very chubby lady and these are not a good look for me either. If they work for you, WORK IT GIRL!! :)

    • Allison :

      I’d be willing to bet you rock a nicely hemmed wide leg pant though? Yes!

  4. Dottie :

    But you would totally rock gogo boots!

    Hee hee! I know. I love a good wide legged pant!

    • Allison :

      Oh man, my mama had so many of those boots it was ridiculous.
