Slouch

I know what you’re thinking… “PANTS!” “CROPPED WIDE-LEGGED PANTS!” Yes, it’s true.


Shirt, Judy Bond (thrifted). Pants, Style & Co (thrifted). Belt, The Limited (thrifted). Shoes, Two Lips. Bag, Vieta. Earrings, Aldo. Bracelets, World Market and Epcot Morocco. Scarf, vintage. Sunnies, Betsey Johnson.

I thought I’d try something new. And for $4.49, it was a low-risk proposition.


I'm still not sure if I love the look, but you can't beat the comfort.

Love this look!

The red shoes really make this. I am also not sure about the look (not on you, just in general). I prefer a slimmer leg, I think.

C Lo said...

I like it! But I can't help but see those pants cropped into shorts and thinking how cute that would be too.

Where have you been!!?? ;)

SewOm said...

I like the look on you. You have a very lithe body (go, Marathon girl!) and the button down and the shoes contribute to making it a streamlined look. I also love shirts with scarf ties like this one. I have got to get me one.

You look adorable! I generally don't love that shape/length of pant, but you make it work with your youth and style. And the shoes, yet again, are fab.

This cobalt blue tie neck blouse is great on you. I have a pair of wide leg cropped trousers, and I love them. I don't like wearing shorts. But, when it's really hot in the summer I am very comfortable in my cropped trousers.

I really love that look. It makes me want to get a pair of red wedges.

recent lurker, first-time poster here :) i don't wear those 3/4-leg pants; i'm too short to rock it, but it looks great on you. i agree though, the shoes definitely tie the outfit together. :)

C Lo - I think the pants would be cute as shorts, too, but then I couldn't wear them to work!

I was absent from the blog because I was boycotting real clothes for awhile. It felt good to get dressed again!

Well for what it's worth, *I* love the cropped pants on you! I'm especially loving the gray shade with the blue blouse and killer red heels. You look fantastic!!!

I love this outfit, except...the ankle strap on your shoes. I think these straps tend to make people look shorter, which is already a possible danger when wearing cropped pants. Whereas a heel/wedge that sits low on the foot may have made your legs looked longer.

Although perhaps, as a terminal shortie, I am over thinking this.

I'm not sure how tall you are but the cropped pants and wedges combo makes you look very tall and lithe. I think you should definitely keep the pants and use them in some future fabulous outfits. And DON'T crop them!

I think it works. I'm not sure how it'd look without the monster wedges, but I definitely like this incarnation of the outfit. Especially love the turbany scarf.

I like it! Its modern with a vintage feel, and that's so rarely a bad thing! The shirt and head scarf are amazing! I think I need them in my life!!

As always you can pull it off, its cheeky and fun and hey if its comfortable even better!

You look gorgeous -- I LOVE the scarf and adore the cobalt & gray pairing -- thanks for the inspiration!

sarabear said...

I kinda dig the whole look on you as it looks- with the hair and all- kinda modern retro...

maryeb said...

Wow, I think you look great. I didn't think I'd like wide leg crops either, but I like them on you.
That blouse is a gorgeous color.

The Ohio River is still pretty high, right? I say u should have taken those photos by it. =]

Kasmira said...

...bill - you're right. We totally missed the chance for high waters near the high water

Healthy and Homemade said...

These look great on you, because you're thin! And the top is snug and the shoes are fabulous, it's a great outfit.

grace said...

I love those on you. This is my favorite outfit you've worn in a long time!

Tina said...

I really like it. It looks chic and effortless. The cropped pant/ankle strap combo could have translated into stumpy legs, but it certainly does not read that way in these photos. I think it's a winner.

Ilove your looks!!! I am so jealous of some of your things! I have been a huge thrift shopper for some time now but you have blown my mind!! I am inspired!

Lauren M said...

While I also prefer a slimmer leg, I got a pair of similar pants in black at my favorite thrift store and they are very comfortable and appropriate for work.

I love the look but I have to say you were the one who makes me think twice before wearing crop pants. It was even mentioned in my "what I've learned in a year of blogging " post.
