I found myself quite smitten with the looks Angie showed us with black ankle pants with black booties. Now that I have my Chelsea boots, I wanted to try the look but alas, the only black ankle pants I have are summer weight. So I tried to mimic the look by rolling my black skinny jeans.

The outfit started with my black skinnies, cuffed twice. I then chose another Angie tip and paired a contrasting black tank with a white "hole-y" pullover (semi tucked). I then added a third Angie tip by pairing my black leather belt with my black booties…it's like an Angie Trifecta - three tips in one!

Popped on my black Chelsea boots (good grief, I love these!) and then decided at the last minute to add a dose of black and white pattern mixing (I kind of think of the black tank/white hole pullover as a polka dot pattern) by tossing on my black/white zebra pattern scarf. Black/white specs, big silver chrome watch and silver ring, and my black leather satchel finish off the outfit.

Happiness factor? Through the roof

Question for you lovely ladies: did I get the cuff right to expose the booties? I tried one more for some bare ankle showing but then the cuff seemed too bulky.

All comments/suggestions welcome. By the way Angie, the last shot is of the thin running socks I wear under my ankle boots.
