Black cropped pants should be in every woman’s closet. But when you can have a staple with a twist then you’ve entered trouser heaven. I love these Apt. 9 jacquard cropped trouser, similar here, because it’s a fun take on a classic. The black on black is a great texture and the print is a fun surprise. This cobalt top with leather trim is a fantastic addition. Leather & jacquard? Yes, ma’am! The only downside to this top is when I sit down the keyhole buckles and things get a little…cleavey. Well, in my case it’s more sternumy, but either way it’s too much concentrated chest flesh for the office. And a new realization I had is that my conservative office flat could use a revamp. These X-Appeal shoes are fine but they’re just too plain for my taste. Yay, shoe shopping trip! I’ll keep you posted on what I find. Good things come to those who wait.
