Here it is, folks - me trying to give into trends. Or rather, me getting bored with skinny jeans, coming across this pair of cropped flares at H&M for under 5 bucks (!!!) and deciding to give it a try. I've been looking for the perfect pair of flares for a while now, and since that proved to be an impossible mission (update: found my soulmates @ American Eagle), I decided to give the cropped style a shot.
Interestingly enough, I really enjoy it and find it to be super versatile. I've already tested them out before here and was a fan of the result. The only downside: I really don't think they photograph very well. Unfortunately, neither does the top, but how you feel is 100% more important than how a look photographs. Needless to say, I felt awesome wearing this outfit - using the body chain I accumulated what, 2 seasons ago, gave the look a little spunk/ was a great way to recycle a past 'trendy' item and give it present context.
