I am so digging cropped pants right now. I think they have a good elongating effect for some reason which is surprising. These hit my ankle bone when they are down, but I have a tendency to roll my pants in the summer, maybe it makes the whole thing feel more effortless. A little pop of color is always great when an outfit is on the neutral side plus I had to girly this up since I was going without makeup. These shoes are about the only red thing that I own! Perhaps I should consider owning more colored shoes! I live in this basic lna tee! It is the perfect fit and their heather grays are just SOOOOO good... definitely a must!
