I knew when I read Angie's blog post on how to wear ankle length pants with ankle strap footwear (http://youlookfab.com/2013/09/.....rap-shoes/) that I would need to give this a "go". I had already purchased these pieces but hadn't thought about rolling the hem of the pants until I saw Angie's beautiful outfit.
I started today's outfit with these recently purchased black-on-black patterned/textured silky pants. I love how these are only slightly slouchy as I'm kind of over wearing the super slouchy look (on me anyway) and how the texture makes the pants more interesting than just plain black. They are full length with a bit of scrunch normally but as per the formula, I rolled them twice to create ankle length. I then added my new ankle strap black and white heels. They are 2 inches so quite comfortable for my knee and because the two box doesn't cut across where my bunion is and is quite wide for a somewhat pointy toe, EXTREMELY comfortable! I then added my pink knit pullover for some bright colour contrast and my snakeskin print oversized clutch. Jewelry is my gold wedding band and my rose gold/black watch.
Have I demonstrated the ankle strap formula correctly here? Does it all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
P.S. Happiness scale? Sky high :)
