Top: J.Crew, Pants: Ann Taylor, Shoes: Cole Haan, Bag: Tumi, Necklace: J.Crew (old)

A little while back I did a post about polka dot cropped pants, sharing my realization about how great they can look on pearshapes. After finding those pants I quickly went back to Ann Taylor and picked up another pair of the Chelsea Crops in a neutral black.

I’m still a little self-conscious in these pants (i’m getting used to the style) but love how versatile they are for work. The cotton is comfy but thick and will work for Summer and Fall. After seeing Wendy’s post featuring her white blouse, I quickly went to J.Crew and took advantage of my student discount to pick up their version. I love how easy it will be to style year around and how great it looks against nearly any bottom. My only complaint about the top is that it isn’t the most pearshape friendly. It is a bit narrow in the hips and causes a bit of pulling when buttoned all the way. I have yet to find a suitable replacement, so if anyone knows of any, please let me know!


Thanks so much for reading!
