Almost perfect: cropped flare jeans, floral kimono, mohair beanie, and stiletto booties

A few weeks ago I suddenly found myself in the mood for a mini wardrobe purge…and would you believe that it was several of my formerly beloved skinny jeans that ended up in the “donations” bag?!

I’ve really been making an effort to explore and experiment with a wider range of trouser silhouettes; like these cropped denim flares, for example.  Yes – I finally snagged an almost perfect pair at Ever New, with the dark wash and moderate (rather than high) waist that I’d been searching for.

I’m saying almost perfect…and that’s because these jeans should perhaps be an inch or two shorter on me. But what’s a petite fashionista to do??  Of course hemming is always an option, but then I’d lose most of the cute little flare that sets them apart.

Even with this latest closet clean-out, though, I still have a good selection of skinnies on standby…after all, they’re pretty much considered a classic by now!!

    This outfit is just the right balance between boho and feminine. I love that beanie, it looks so soft!

    Monika I just adore this photo shoot – you have found the perfect location that suits the outfit so well, plus talk about great clouds!!!!! You couldn't have painted them in more beautifully!

    I too have just rescued a pair of very old jeans from the charity shop pile… All they needed was a couple of inches chopped off and voila, on-trend, cropped, flared (and frayed) jeans! Love how you've paired yours with the long floral top and those AWESOME boots. Top marks for both your outfit AND the photography, sweetie!!
