Because we all have way too much experience at changing our normal at this point!! In this case, I'm talking about sartorial normals ... specifically rises. These shorts were one of four pairs I bought a couple of years ago from the J. Crew outlet ... I liked all of them because they were polished, a bit preppy, and made a bit more of an outfit (the others were a bright green pair, a chambray, and an eyelet navy pair). However, I've gotten rid of three of the four this year, because the rise - what I would have described as mid-rise when I bought them - is now way too low. Given my torso has not gotten any longer, I can only assume I've slowly adjusted to the higher rises and now a 'normal' rise for me has to cover my belly button (which would have felt Urkel-ish just a year or two ago). I change slowly - but I do change! These shorts just barely make the cut, sitting just below belly button on me. I imagine this might be their last season. Accessorized with delicate earrings and necklace to counteract the tablecloth vibe of the shorts

What style 'normals' have changed for you recently?

Anyhow, that's it for my musings! After a brief slump in energy and attitude, I'm getting myself back together and so going to try to post and participate more often again! xoxo Happy Monday all!
