I've been wanting to try this outfit out for a while but our weather stayed too warm for it. (!!)

Then, when I did finally get a chance to try it, today, I realized it's just a reprise -- with dark bottoms -- of my earlier Parsley-inspired light blue and dark red ensemble. Oh well. The good news is, I got to wear my beloved Stuart Weitzman black booties. Happy sigh.

These pants (GAP Real Skinny -- on their 4th season now) are very stretchy and not at all uncomfortable, but they feel "too tight." Have I expanded? (Quite possible -- I have not weighed or measured myself in a while). Or have I simply got used to a slouchier, looser, more fluid fit overall? Or maybe both?

Anyway, I thought I would risk rolling them at the ankle for a slightly more current look. I've never purchased a pair of ankle pants, despite the craze for them, so the only way I expose ankle is by rolling. With my short legs it is hardly the most flattering look but I hope it's JFE for a meeting at DD's school.
