After recent posts by lisa p and others about high waist pants, I decided to give it a try. These NYDJ Claire linen trousers come right to my belly button. I sewed this top - eked out of scraps left over when I made a a true maxi with pockets so I could have a comfy practical sun covering skirt.

I have been wanting to expand my color palette a bit with jewel tones that are a bit less dark, and this embroidered knit fabric checked a lot of boxes (and sparked my purchase of the raspberry lace dress I posted about earlier). The top is too short to wear with mid rise, but with these high rise pants I can raise my arms without flashing skin.

The Clarks sandals are super comfy wedges - combined with the pants I feel quite tall.

I'm not sure whether I will get more high rise pants as they seem to need a very specific shirt length if you aren't going to tuck. But I'd love feedback about this combo - does the top length/pant style work?
