WIW : Summer arrives early!

Hi Ladies,

As is the way here, we tend to bypass Spring and Summer arrives before it's supposed to lol

Very busy weekend so I kept Master 12 home today and we did some errands and are about to sit down and watch Jurassic World.

This is what I wore this morning:

Jersey Crop "Lauren" Pants - Motto
Ink Jersey tunic - Target 'Limited Editions'
Sandals - London Rebel

I am not a crop pants girls so this is new for me:) I liked the combination of the length and the fabric, it seems to work.  I often pefer a slim pant leg to to legging so I expect to wear these under tunics and shorter dresses too. And because they are pants drapey tops will work fine ove them too.  I am looking forward to styling them with a heel too.

Thanks for looking.  How's the length look to you?

xxx Deborah

    Love the drapy top! Not sure about the pants length - will let others more uptodate eyes weigh in (I was too indoctrinated by Angie's dislike for most cropped pants some years ago!)

    Very beautiful for at home wear!

    Length is good alround, to my eyes, and will be very versatile! Great top, too, YLF as always Debs!:-)

    Thanks Cerinda;)

    Anne, I have never worn crops before because I find the proportions so hard to get right:( These are a soft fabric and have that crushed look which creates a vertical line which I feel helps to create the illusion of length;).

    Lyn, thank you! I'm always encouraged by your kind and generous comments xx

    Nice summer look. My transitional seasons sometimes fly by too.

    This looks great, Deborah! Navy/ink and black makes me happy:) I think the length is great for both heels and flats. These pants will probably be very versatile in your wardrobe both on their own and as a layering piece.

    I love this, Deborah! I think of ink and black as such a signature on you. The pant length looks good to me. Sure, it's a little longer than on the model, but I think it works with the longer, drapey top. A shorter length in the pants might throw off the lengthening proportions.

    As an aside, I so admire your leaping in to try proportion and am looking to you for guidance and inspiration. I had a hard time with PPL so adding cropped pants, culottes and higher shaft boots to my wardrobe has my head spinning. ;)

    Yes, yes, yes!

    That blue drapey top is so pretty.  The cropped pants look good to me the way you have them styled here.  Have fun watching your movie!
