You Blew Me Away - Hapa Time

You Blew Me Away

There's something about high low skirts that are just so perfect. Magical, romantic, whimsical, I love them. They're better than mini skirts, better than maxis and all those in between.

New skirt - Sheinside, top - Arden B., New bracelet, necklace and ring - c/o Lylif, bag - Aldo, heels - Cathy Jean

Thank you to Sheinside for sending me this beautiful skirt and Lylif for all the lovely jewelry :) Sheinside has a lot of amazing street-style merchandise, and they provide free shipping worldwide too, with no minimum purchase! And not to mention, Lylif has the most affordable quality jewelry ever, and they ship very quickly!

If you have a high low skirt, how do you style it? I personally like the strapless top + high low skirt look a lot, but generally I think tops tucked in look well with them too. The only problem is, it really highlights the waist line. And we all have our days where we do NOT want to highlight that waistline... ha ha. I actually have 3 more high low skirts/dresses to style for you guys, can't wait :) 

Do you know what I've been eating/enjoying a lot this month? No, you will never guess... Rubios! That's right, Rubios fish tacos are soooo amazing. And they have "Taco Tuesday" where their tacos are only $1.50. It's a great deal :) (Though, unfortunately, as my sister just informed me... very high calorie!!!)

Oh and I've been quite obsessed with watching the Walking Dead with my boyfriend. I'm not a fan of horror, but it's kind of addicting. We're already halfway through Season 2. (Daryl is my favorite character! Though I already liked him from the Boondock Saints) And it's really nice because since I have a new car I get to park in the garage and I don't have to worry about the scary walk to the front door :)

  4. I'm obsessed with this look. It's so classic and elegant. I also love the contrasts of that orange strapless top with that gorgeous flowing skirt!! :) I love that necklace too! And it's so funny that you would mention that. My Dad and I have been watching the Walking Dead!! We've just made it through the first season. It is addicting isn't it?? haha Have a great week lovely!

  5. Wow, you are just stunning Jess!
    I love the high-low cuts on dresses and skirts as well, and that black skirt is a keeper for sure. I've got 2 skirts like that, one which I made myself haha. Sheinside has such a lovely selection!
    Great styling of it too. The Lylif jewelry is perfect! I can't get over that snake necklace.
    Oh, and I've heard SOO much about the Walking Dead show! I wish we had the channel...I want to see it. Ha, I'm not a big fan of horror either, but maybe just a little scare wouldn't be too bad...

  6. I live in an old house so that walk to the front door is elongated. And you can see in my pictures, we're surrounded by woods. No nice neighborhood to act as protection, just looming trees made scarier in the dark. Let's just say I HATE staying home alone :)
    I have one high-low skirt from forever21 in a red color and I loved it when i bought it but the color just isn't my favorite. I wish i had gotten the light pink color they had! I always wind up looking slighty witchy when I wear mine. I need one in a more versatile color (like black) :)
    Can't wait to see how you style the rest of your high-lows and I absolutely LOVE how you wore this one! I agree--tucking in is the best way to go! <3

  9. I love high lo skirts! this one is such a pretty color Jessica. Dude Rubio Tuesdays is where it's at! haha I've been enjoying that lots of Tuesdays. And I also just finished going through all of Walking Dead and Daryl is also my fave! His character develops so much in this season...have you gotten to that dramatic climax in middle of season 2? i dont want to give it away if you haven't yet...something super crazy and sad that made me cry.

Already had too many things in my hands! haha. Looking forward to seeing how you style the others. I know they will be gorgeous as always!! :)

  57. I love this look!!! I really like Blue and Orange together, with the navy it is perfect! And pared with the neutrals and gold... so put together nicely :)

    I love the Walking Dead! However, we no longer have cable (we actually do not watch "tv" much but we watch a lot of shows) and the shows we do watch are all streamed free online. So we're a bit behind on what's current :(

    ReplyDelete
  58. The way you styled the skirt looks great! I've always felt like this was kind of a "mehhh" kind of fashion because it's just not very classic. However, you proved me wrong. It looks great with a simple top and maybe it's the color of your skirt, but it looks awesome.
