Belts and Cropped Pants

I hope everyone has had a good week! Mine has been crazy busy and getting back in the routine after the holidays is always a challenge.

Two of my favorite items this season are cropped pants and belts. It's funny how trends change...for a while I did everything loose and flowy and my pants very long (floor skimming, actually). I didn't think cropped pants would work on my short frame and belts would make me look heavy but the opposite is true. Cropped pants should hit right at the ankle bone not shorter. Remember, these are cropped pants and not capris (I actually don't do capris). If worn with a heel or a pointy toe skimmer your legs look just as long as they would with floor grazing pants. Another reason I'm loving my pants cropped is that, being the shoe lover I am, it shows off my shoes! The shoes I'm wearing are some of my favorites. I love them so much I bought two pair so when one wears out I've got a backup! The neutral color goes with everything and the platform makes them super comfy. I can wear them all day and not regret it! I've started to belt a lot if my things, from pants to sweaters and dresses. Tip on belts...the thicker the fabric of the garment being belted the wider the belt. A thin belt would have gotten lost in this chunky sweater but the wide belt adds the structure needed to define the waist. And you can never go wrong with leopard print as far as I'm concerned! It's always savvy and stylish!

Have an amazing weekend!
