Today I dared to wear flared crop jeans (similar). These were found at a consignment store for about $8, so I decided to risk it. I do like the length and the funky feel, but I’m not crazy for the white cord drawstring. I can replace it, yes?

I think these trousers look best with no skin showing below the hemline. So I chose my thrifted Donald J. Pliner boots (sim) for my footwear. The cobalt blouse (sim) is another consignment find; it’s by Vince, all silk and super comfortable. The tag advises to dry clean only but I say pfffftttt to that and hand wash it. This is a great casual outfit for my daily routine: singing, biking, working at the thrift, and watching Jessica Jones on Netflix. : >

I commented earlier, but love those boots with the cropped jeans. I end up hand washing most things
Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday!
Great outfit! I love all the gems you find at thrift stores! I think the jeans will be perfect without the string. I like them with the boots, and I bet you could play with different shoes, too. And the blue shirt looks stunning on you! What a find!
Yeah, ditch that cord, love the pants. You have great shooties too where you could flash some ankle maybe? I love the casual feel with tailored bits. Blue always looks great on you too. Drycleaning? What’s that? – says the woman who just disintegrated a gown with handwashing. But I would not have drycleaned it either.
Great look on you! Visiting from Turning Heads Tuesday. Enjoyed your post!
You’ve got it right, Patti…the outfit looks fabulous!
Patti, this is real cool and soooo beautiful what you are wearing. Have no words. Today you are taking my breath away xxx Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving! We are totally in the festive mood and hitting the Christmas market which you would really like ….Sabina | Oceanblue Style
Cropped pants get no love from me – they would highlight my already short body. You have carried them off with aplomb.
Thank you again for hosting!
They look great with boots and the jacket is fabulous.
I never use a dry cleaner, everything goes in the machine here! xxx
Fab look! <3
I like those, I am a huge fan of wide leg pants having that thick hem line! Love how you styled these. Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

Love the cropped style with your boots, they are a great style, I have been obsessing over boots lately, love the blue jacket, I think blue is one of your best colors!! Looking great xo
Ooooh, I LIKE them! they are really nice and I would totally wear them!!! xxx
The jeans look cool with your boots, Patti, and the varying shades of blue suit you so well.
I never go to the dry cleaners, I have found most things can be washed if you are gentle and careful with them! xxx
Love your great find! Yes, the boots were definitely the right choice, it makes the cropped flares chic. Thank you for the link up Patti!

I love the cropped denim. You wear them well! So many versatile pieces, and I love the jacket for a topper.
Those cropped jeans look fabulous on you! I love them styled with the booties!
Doused In Pink
Those booties are so perfect with the jeans!
There’s something about the kick flare jean and boots that scares me. You absolutely rock it though! I love the jackets long length too. And can i just say, your hair is looking extra fabulous!XX
you look so pretty- love the jeans!
Southern Elle Style
You are absolutely rockin’ this Patti, love this look on you! Love, Kirsten x
Who knew that I would like cropped flare jeans…but I do! They look fab on you Patti, white string or not. 🙂
Patti, I love this outfit. You look fantastic! And the white drawstring isn’t all terrible, but I agree, a dark blue would be better. Nonetheless, you are always fabulous and you always look amazing…white drawstring and all!
Cool look Patty! Modern, stylish and comfortable!
Pretty and easy = a great look on you, Patti!
I really like how you styled your cute cropped jeans – so cute with your boots! Enjoy your wine and have a wonderful week.
I’m the same about the drawstring. Odd that they chose white – a dyed blue would’ve been better but nonetheless they do look good on you. I love the vividness of the colbalt blue (one of my favourite colours) and you’ve nailed the casual yet stylish vibe to a T!
I’m always nervous about handwashing dry clean items but it’s such a pain having to take them everytime so I do brave it and so far, no disasters (touch wood!).
You’re fearless, I love how you give new things a try. I always hand wash dry-clean items too! Usually works out okay, only a few disasters… x
These cropped pants and boots work so well on you. The long line jacket and shirt , the perfect finishing touches. I must admit I always hand wash and ignore the dry clean labels. I agree the white cord must go.
Patti these jeans work really well with your boots and I do like the jacket as a finishing touch. I’m with you on that Dry Cleaning label. I think if you’re doing a cool handwash is has just the same results. Thank you for the link up party x

Glad to join you again and really honoured to be in Whowhatwear in such a good company.
I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative
and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy I found this in my search for something concerning this.
I recently wore an outfit with white flare crops with some booties and it looked so awful on me. I think you made it work well here! Thank you for hosting and hope you are having a fab week!
Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
Those denim flares are awesome Patti. You stylish woman.
Hope you had the loveliest Thanksgiving! <3 Ada.
Yes. The drawstring must go. Do you need it to hold the pants up?
Clever you to think of a long dark line with the booties. Works well!
Love your jacket, Patti! Thanks for the link up…have a great week!
I love this look, Patti. Thrifting is such a great way to try out new styles.
I like the look, though I agree, I would probably do something different with the drawstring.
I don’t think I would like those jeans on me, but they look great on you! I do agree that the white cord is distracting though.
I agree…that white string is annoying! LOL
I concur with your choice to wear these jeans with boots. I must say the pants look much better on you than when I tried to style denim culottes on myself. Granted, mine were much shorter. I wonder if this length might have worked for me…
Love the turned up collar. Très chic baby!
Love that blue top!!
What a cute outfit! And you’re right, the navy jacket dresses it up quite nicely. Enjoy the wine. 🙂
Yay, good for you for hand-washing your silk. Most natural fabrics can be washed by hand – I just washed a “dry clean only” vintage mohair skirt with a little shampoo and it came out beautifully!
Thanks so much for hosting “Visible Monday”, Patti! You are rockin’ these trousers (definitely swap out that drawstring!).
Oh, I like these on you! Very cute!!
Fabulous trousers Patti, they look great with the shoes and blazer! Thank you for hosting 🙂 hugs xxx
I think they look great with those boots! I agree, no leg showing below the leg and the white string does need to go 🙂 Have a great week!
You’re a brave woman, hand washing dry-clean only garments… Well, I’ve done the same, with varying results. These days I mostly try to avoid clothes that must be dry-cleaned, which is a pity as silk shirts are so lovely. You look lovely, too, as usual. And yes, the white string has to go.
