The Wrong Trousers

The title of this post is pretty nonsensical... I just love Wallace & Gromit! But in a way these are the wrong trousers for me. I found them at a thrift store ages ago but have barely worn them. They fit like a glove, but I have an unusual problem with them. While pants are always too long for my petite frame, these are too short! They are the perfect length for flats, but I rarely wear flats, especially with dressier pieces. To remedy this, I pinned them up to create cropped trousers, and I love the result! I may actually sew them to this length. Even beyond the pants, I adored everything about this outfit. This sweater is a new favorite, and overall it was a nice break from my usual skinny jeans or skirt.
