Hi guys! I'm baaaaaaaaack! You may have been wondering what happened to me over the last two weeks, and if you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter you'll already know why-we moved! We found a house and in a whirlwind two weeks, signed on it and moved with almost no warning, which was amazing but also stressful. BUT, we're finally calming down enough for me to pick blogging back up on my regular schedule. Yay!
Today I'm showing off some of my favorite recent thrift store finds, and giving you guys a few tips on choosing asymmetrical hemlines this summer season. Check out the sweet sweet outfit and finds:

I know lately there's been some debate over the 'hi-low' trend and if it's here to stay for the being, or if it's on it's way out. Personally, I don't really care because I like being able to wear skirts that let me actually bend over without exposing my pasty white butt cheeks. So as far as I'm concerned, the asymmetrical hem trend is still a yes! (It doesn't hurt that Noah loves them, either)
I've got a huge collection of this kind of hem, because though I love maxi skirts sometimes it's nice to wear something a little more interesting then a basic maxi.
1. Play with pattern as well as hem length! It may seem like a lot of...well...everything, but part of what I loved about this dress was the florals and stripes combined. I love that combo so much!
2. Don't just assume the high-in-front/low-in-back skirt is the only option! This skirt is actually low only on the sides (which is hard to see in the pictures) and I love that it's not a typical party-in-the-front and business-in-the-back style, it adds just a little more visual interest.
3. Pick a skirt that the highest point hits you at the most flattering point on your legs! for me, this is a higher hemline because I have super short legs and this makes them look longer, but there are plenty of other options out there that are knee length or even longer. Pick one that really flatters your own legs.
Well, those are my big three tips, chime in below and let me know how you choose the right asymmetrical hemline for you! And weigh in on the high-low hem; hot or not? Debate!
