WIW: Late to the cropped pants bandwagon

My eye has been really slow to adjust to cropped pants, and I still don't have it figured out, but I'm starting to try.

I realize that this outfit would probably be more flattering if my boots were white or my pants black, so that they elongated my leg line.  In spite of this, I still liked the outfit pretty well.  I may try it next time with a shorter, less drapey top.

What would you change?

    You look super cute!!

    ETA: The length and boots lean more hipster than modern classic... so there is that.

    Super cute. The black boots work well here.

    Lovely to see you post again, Amy. Missed you.

    Thank you Rachy and Angie!

    Rachy, I would say that I'm definitely more hipster than modern classic, so this is cool with me.

    Angie, I've missed being here too - I've faithfully read the blog each day, but just recently started feeling the need for a "less serious" diversion, and decided that I was missing out by not participating as much in this wonderfully positive community.  Thanks for being here! :)

    I think the black boots work just fine! You seem to have quite a long leg line, so this works on you. There's nothing I would change about this outfit -- except you could try semi-tucking the top, just for fun. Although then you'd lose the asymmetrical hem, so maybe it's better as is! Great outfit.

    Good to see you Amy! Your outfit works for me. I would also try it in the summer with lighter clothes and sandals.

    This outfit looks like you which makes me very happy!  I'm finding that I like a more fitted crop pant so you might give that a try as they seem to balance out a drapey top.  However, you have nice long legs so the drapey top with your current pants look good too.
