modcloth jeans

Over a year ago I saw someone wearing cropped jeans and booties and I was like… no. That is not ok.

Flash forward a year and here I am, loud and proud, wearing my cropped jeans and booties. So never say never, Kathleen!

But let’s talk more specifically about these jeans. I think they’re magical jeans. They are high waisted, lightweight with just enough stretch, and they’re my most slimming black jeans. I sized down because I wanted a snug fit, and I haven’t stopped wearing them since I got them. I think they work with booties and would be so perfect for date night with pumps or strappy sandals and a camisole.

I wore this on an early morning a week or so ago when the weather was so nice in the low 60s… the high is in the triple digits today (Octobers in California can be CRAZY!).  So I’m just thanking God our current house has air conditioning!  Our first home in CA didn’t and it was really rough some weeks. Like… really rough. Truthfully you only need AC for about three months out here but those months can be so sweaty without it. Praise Jesus for this AC!

Are you into the cropped jean trend? Can you see yourself wearing them with booties?

Would love to hear about any “magic jeans” in your closet! Thanks so much for reading – XO –

  1. Where do you get handbag you are carrying? It’s fabulous. Neither of the bags you noted were it.

  2. We love jeans that are made to flatter curves. The weather swings wildly on the East Coast too, so having a pair of jeans that hug your form and can be worn with anything is a huge plus! The black boots are very nice look and we like your idea of pairing the cropped jeans with strappy sandals. IZOA’s Charlotte Strappy Sandal High Heels may go perfectly! (
