It's gorgeous out today, so naturally I want to show some skin. My bare ankles are coming out to see the world! Don't be nervous, Ankles, you'll find that the world is right where you left it.
Disclaimer: This isn't an outfit you wear to impress a guy as it's a well-known fact that men hate cropped pants. Whatever, guys--I don't like your cargo shorts and ironic tees. Fitted, cropped pants that fall just above the ankle are my favorite. The slim shape can be super flattering, too.
Here is an outfit similar to what I wore to work today that made me feel oh-so-Audrey Hepburn:
J Crew merino leopard cardigan, $88
J Crew Minnie Pants, $79.50 (I am 5'9" and got the tall version which have a 29" inseam. They graze the area about an inch above my ankle)
Banana Republic Lightweight Cashmere Scarf (I have a linen version of this that I got at Old Navy for $5 and it's one of my favorite scarves OF ALL TIME)
Salvatore Ferragamo Varina Flats in Chalk, $440 at Saks (Hands down, best shoe I have ever purchased)
Anyone can dress like Audrey Hepburn circa Breakfast at Tiffany's--oh sure, take the easy, glamorous black dress, and up-do with a tiara route. It takes guts to wear cropped pants. And if you never thought that before, you will now that you know all men hate to see women wearing them.
Forget them. Embrace your inner flood!
