Express was having a big sale last week and I picked up a couple cropped trousers to try out. I’ve always felt that cropped trousers are the ideal pants for the warmer months as it lets you show off a little bit of ankle (and shoe!) while still keeping it professional for the workplace.
I noticed this pair of trousers on the Express site and while it hits the model at mid-calf, it’s just above my ankle on my petite 26″ inseam legs. Honestly I find this length perfect for those who are a bit shorter as the longer hem elongates the leg a bit more while still keeping true to the cropped style. Best part is, I can wear these pants straight off the rack without any alterations! My mom (aka tailor) will be happy. 🙂
As for why there are spots on my pants, I got caught in the rain! A big storm happened to
pass through town right around 3PM today and by the time I took pictures
after work, there was no avoiding the inevitable frizzy hair. But I am
happy that I was able to at least snap a few pictures before the real
torrential downpour came minutes later!
