A friend of mine has just adopted a new bulldog puppy and I'm going to meet her this morning. The wide crops and flats outfit sounded perfect so I'm giving it a try.
My outfit is kind of a cross between version 1 and version 3 from the blog.
Technically, these jeans are cropped flares, I guess, since they are snug on the thigh. But they're more casual (and pup proof) than my darker Rayners. They have a medium high rise (comes to my navel). I tucked an oversized shirt. (J. Crew -- years old and still going strong in my closet -- I have 3 of these Thomas Masson tux shirts and I'll probably never let them go because I adore the feel of the fabric on my skin and the collars work so well for me). Added my sneakers and white denim jacket plus a structured bag.
Not sure if the result is JFE but worth a try! These items, as in Angie's version, are all "oldies but goodies" and like her, I only wear my wide leg crops in the spring/ summer/ early fall seasons.
By the way, these jeans occasioned much controversy on the forum when I bought them. They seem to be an acquired taste. :)
