Cropped Trousers & Footwear?

I love cropped trousers with pumps. It's a look that's smart enough for work, yet practical and easy to wear for the rest of the day. Here's my usual look...
H&M Cropped Trousers £9.99
Dune Patent Ballet Pumps - £55

But I would like to move outside my comfort zone when wearing crops so I've been experimenting wearing them with other shoes...what do you think?
With Grey Clarks Ankle Boot? 
or with my M&S Shoe Boot?
or how about these fierce purple ankle boots from M&S that I've NEVER worn!?
or with sensible courts from Hobbs?
or with my bargainous patent sandals from New Look?
Let me know which is your favourite...meanwhile, I'll play it safe in my pumps. Enjoy the sunshine of you have any. Be sure to check back tomorrow for full details of my March Competition!



  1. def the purple ankle boots or the patent sandals!!

  2. I agree! Love the purple ankle boots in particular with an oversized knit and statement jewellery. That would look v stylish!

    1. Thanks for the outfit suggestion Beth...sounds fab. I think I'm intimidated a little bit by how full on they are but given the comments on here, I do really need to wear them more.

  3. You have shoes you have never worn!!?? Why do women do that?? Great blog as always - Hubby!

  4. Why don't you try it with your blazer for eve with some v pointy fierce stilettos?

  5. I like the M&S shoe boot with the trousers

    I'm lazy with 3/4 trousers & stick to Clarks flats or high heelded mules. I'm 5 foot 2 & have to be careful as my legs are short anyway, without exagerating the fact in 3/4 length trousers or skirts. I like the last photo best, but love, love, love the purple ankle boots.

  7. Thanks for all the comments...I need to wear those purple boots more. Planning an outfit as I type :)

  8. I absolutely love the purple ankle boots! really beautiful!

  9. If black off shoulder dress keeps women a sense of mystery.Then maxi dress casual shows the neat and pure of a girl.
