5 Days of AOS: Connnietang

I'm really excited to participate in Articles of Society's 5 Days of AOS again. They are so supportive and sweet. (thank you!!) This week 4 bloggers and myself are styling these high-waist jeans in different ways. 

Check out how these bloggers styled the jean here: 
Style Cue by Suzie Q (Up tomorrow)

This is a different look, but I think that its fun to experiment a bit and push your comfort-zone by wear new clothing items. So I wore it with a loose long layered top (so my bum was covered) and tucked it in in the front. What is your take on high-waist jeans?

Also, what are you going to be for Halloween? :D

Pretty Full Sweater Skirt

It is our 5 year anniversary this upcoming weekend and I can't believe how long its been and how quickly it has flown by. It honestly feels like we just met a year ago, but we've gone through so much! From college to graduation to starting our careers. :) We plan to revisit some of our favorite and most memorable restaurants, places, activities, etc. this weekend and to also make a memory box of knick knacks. Then put it away and forget about it for another 5 years. 

What kinds of things do you and your significant other do for special occasions? I would love to get additional ideas! By the way, hope you like this look! I am swooning over this skirt, the material and fit looks like it would be by a designer! I love how full and flattering it is. 

If you haven't already, check out my current giveaway for a chance to win one of two $50 gift cards! Have an amazing week!
