Another pair of bright cropped trousers with a blazer. I warned you will see a lot of this type of look. You may recall my post about these cropped trousers here, when I was lusting after them during my Lenten shopping ban. Well when the ban lifted, the price still wasn't right for me. Then they finally got reduced and I had a discount code, BUT they were out of my size in this color, 2nd BUT they did have my size in Tall. So I went for it and had my seamstress hem them, and even take them in along the hips and I'm really pleased with the result. The reason for this hoopla over a pair of cropped trousers is becayse of this photo:
from the Index section of a Vogue from last year. There's something about this outfit, its color, crispness, just overall elegance that really struck me. Ever since I've been on the look out for bright blue cropped trousers and I think I hit the mark.
