with september getting a bit cooler, i can feel the days of sandals and open toed shoes becoming few and far between. i will try to wear them as much as i can until it gets colder. i'd wear this outfit with a pair of pointy toed pumps at that point.
during club monaco's latest promotion, i got these cropped pants, identified on the site as "renay cropped pants" (here), did the whole sizing thing, and based on measurements, i went with the 2, which is one size up from my regular j crew size. they are a perfect fit and require no hemming. i'm really impressed with the weight of the fabric and the cut. the pants held out really well throughout the day with no funky puckers at the knees, which can happen with the j crew wool cafe capris.
the weird thing is that the tag said the style was "ursula". i don't care if it's renay or ursula, but these pants fit, so they'll stay! i did a search on the site and got nothing under ursula, and now i'm not sure what will come if i get the same pants in a different colour.
*should we call this the mystery of the amazing club monaco pants?*
