OOTD 8-15-12: Safari Cat Capris, Trouser-Style

OOTD 8-15-12: Safari Cat Capris, Trouser-Style

Forever thanks to my PS at the local B&M for the best idea for wearing J. Crew's Safari Cat linen café capris.

These pants are heavy linen, which makes them bulky (and hot on a warm day. whew), and they're cuffed.   Perfect, in other words, for wearing NOT as a capri but instead as a cuffed narrow-legged trouser.  To wear them this way, my PS suggested that I order them in the Tall, which has a 30" inseam.  What a fantastic suggestion!  The front of the cuff breaks gently right on the top of my foot.  

For reference, I'm 5'4", so this nifty idea won't do much for you tall cool drink o' water gals, sorry. :-)  If you're shorter, follow the link above and you'll find these still widely available at a great sale price in the Tall version. 

For tomorrow's women's group board meeting (translation: business-y casual) and a busy day of errands afterwards, this is going to be my OOTD. IRL, these trusty old flats look soooooo good with this spring's Keeper Chambray Shirt!
