WIW: Ankle pants are growing on me

I think I might be converted to team Ankle pants.  After years of staying away from crops, and skinny ankle pants and feeling like they just weren't the right proportion for my leg shape, I've given in...and I kind of like it!

Green, black and white is today's combo.  After having my Okalas already visit the cobbler for repair, I'm being more careful about wearing them from car to office (which is only a 2 block walk).  My gold accessories match my gold walking flats. I wish I could find these in silver!

    I love your outfit and I wear ankle pants all the time (even though I'm not supposed to).

    You wear ankle pants so well. Love the shirt/shoes combo and the emerald with black and white.

    Great proportion on the ankle pants.  I love your color combination!

  • Alecia replied 7 years ago

    I think you pull the ankle pant off well. But had to say your walking flats are so great! Love those.

    I love this outfit!  The tapered pants look fabulous on you and TDF with the Okala Pumps.  Your legs look a mile long.

    If I had lovely long legs like you Von, I'd be wearing ankle pants too! Love the color of those trousers and they are fab with the Okalas.

    Oohh love everything about this outfit! The spikey ballet flats got to be the coolest!

  • RunswithDolphins replied 7 years ago

    Those are some seriously nice shoes!  Love the aqua, it seems to be a theme colour today and that's a good thing.  Embrace the ankle it looks great on you and you get to really focus on the shoes.

    Shoe twin :) I love ankle pants too.

  • shemarie replied 7 years ago

    You look great! Love the ankle pants with those fabulous shoes and the black + white + color! I'm becoming an ankle pant convert too...finally an upside to being too tall to be able to ever find regular pants long enough off the rack....we can buy regulars and if they're tapered just right, they're now on-trend ankle pants! :-)

    Love the green with that print. The okalas are just what ankle pants orderd! You look sensational.

    Too Cute!!! I like ankle paints on you and your accessories
    are perfection!

    Beautiful outfit, head to toes in either pair of shoes. I have pants that are quite similar and enjoy seeing how you wear yours. You're inspiring me!

  • Von replied 7 years ago

    Thanks ladies!  JG in my closet, any solid piece is fair game for mixing and matching. I'm having a lot more fun with colored bottoms than I thought I would!

    Great look, adore the sea green colour of the pants. Don't you just love that you can switch seamlessly from heels to flats when you wear ankle pants?

  • Isabel replied 7 years ago

    I LOVE everything about this outfit. Color, pattern, proportions. Everything. I agree with the ankle pants. They are a great way to show off those awesome shoes and I like them with booties too.
