That is cute and flattering too. I think it looks great the way you've styled it...c'mon, keep that shirt IN!

I like this on you, and don't think it comes across as too exaggerated a look, with the tucked in blouse. The belt you have with it gives enough of a line at the true waist imo.

Thanks for your great review and blog posting! How complimentary to your figure (ooh - any tips on exercises to get one's waist like yours) and how lovely with the blouses you have perfectly paired with your beautiful skirt.

I was just reading on the message boards about the Pantone color of the year -- and I think this skirt is it. So even if the waistline is dated, the color is hot. Although I love the waistline -- looks great on you, and I like it with the skinny belt.

CUTE cute the color - IN now for 2011 as another thread on the boards tells us. ;)

I love this look. I think you should wear it with blouse tucked in. The lines really suit you.

Looks fabulous with the tops and love the skinny black belt. I don't think it's dated at all. Looks great! (I, too, vote for tucked in blouse.) What is the blouse (black/pink/white) pattern?

Here's another vote for the tucked in blouse. Beautiful skirt. Fits you very well. Great color

Great skirt - I have made this skirt and love this pattern!

I agree; I think it looks chic and snazzy.

I love your skirt and am SO envious that you have the waist to wear it! I do not think it is too high at all. The hot pink color is a terrific choice and the blouse definitely looks wonderful tucked in! I so appreciate your posts with all your beautiful outfits for the inspiration they give me.

So cute! I agree, keep that shirt tucked IN! It looks very flattering on you!

Based on the photos, I think it looks great, however, I get your perspective having made this skirt when it first came out. It just seemed too high-waisted (and was very tight) and in person it just didn't look right somehow, I thought it was my body type and style. It has lingered in my closet unworn.

Great outfit--this pink is your color--you OWN IT! Love it with your black/pink multi-color print blouse.

This skirt really works on you, it really shortens your top half and lengthens your legs

That looks fabulous and I am bright green with envy. Go girl it suits you and the colour rocks. Tuck in while you can and enjoy being young. Merry xmas
