I love finding pretty new things to look at. And funny things. And that is why I love it when blogs I like list their favorite blogs that they like, because chances are, I will like them too. So I was looking at Habitually Chic when I wandered on over to A Lovely Being. Both are truly lovely websites. A Lovely Being recently featured the Greenbriar Resort, where they have rooms decorated like this:

Anyway, over on the website, there was a post about French pop star Yelle's video, Comme Un Enfant. She describes the video as "pink," and "catchy," and she describes Yelle as "Audrey Hepburn meets Lady Gaga." Well, of course I had to check that out. My favorite thing about the video are a pair of shorts the singer wears. They are high-waisted, short, black, retro yet modern, and I love them.
If I had legs like that, I would definitely be getting a pair of those shorts. And they seem to be cropping up all over. I found another pair on the blog Anna del Russo.

I won't be going super short when I sport this look, but I will definitely be wearing some of these high-waisted lovelies when it warms up enough. Which I'm starting to think is never going to happen, the way these little winter storms keep blowing in. There's supposedly a chance we'll get snow. That's the word on the street, anyway. So later, when it is warm enough that I won't spend the whole day cursing the cold, I will be pairing my high waisted shorts with all kinds of tops, many of which I am sure are still at the stores, just waiting for me to purchase them and take them home to my ever expanding closet.
