I was running late for work, so I had to put together this outfit in a hurry. When I don’t wear jeans, I go for my Banana Republic cropped pants. I got a few pairs in different colors back in December. I love how stylish they can make a pair of kitten heels look.
I layered with a breezy camel tone scarf that made my lipstick pop. Whenever I use a bold red, I try to keep it minimal. I wanted the outfit to have a vintage feel, but I offset it with more current material and the bundled scarf. This style with the cropped pants makes me think of a Grace Kelly or Jackie O ensemble. I’ve always admired the simple beauty in these outfits.
