Gosh, I hope this outfit is JFE - it definitely isn't traditionally flattering. I'm only 5 feet tall and rolled white jeans with high contrast purple-blue suede booties is definitely stumpifying.
Today's outfit actually started with this three-year-old merino wool drapey hi-lo striped pullover. At one point, I had thought about purging this pullover but am soooooo glad I didn't. And the quality of this wool is stellar - three years and not a single pill. Still looks like new.
I've paired the pullover with my slimmer leg white BF jeans - I love how the white jeans play with the white stripe in the pullover.
Then I rolled one cuff on the jean legs and popped on my purple-blue suede booties, also several years old. Like I mentioned, definitely not overly flattering in that my legs look quite short like this. But I've enjoyed seeing some high contrast pants and booties looks with ALL of the bootie showing, especially booties with a slightly higher shaft, and thought I'd give it a bash.
When I head out the door, everything will be topped with my navy leather jacket. Accessories include my navy vintage Coach bag, grey and silver bangle, silver wedding band and black/white specs.
So…have I pulled off this look enough to be JFE or does it look ridiculous? I've already headed out the door so can't do anything about it now but would definitely like to know for the next time. Wear again or wear my full length white BF jeans instead? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
