I’m really glad cuffed and ankle length pants are coming back in style. It makes it a lot easier to find pants as a tall girl. And even if these pants aren’t supposed to just come to my ankle, I shall tell people they are. (Notice that when I sit they come up to my calf. They are supposed to be that way, I promise…)
Directly after these photos were taken, I sat in my car and cursed the wind for a good 5 minutes for 1) messing up my messy bun and 2) making my scarf look like it was trying to eat my neck. Then I asked Bryan if there was a place in the world with no wind and it was always 70 degrees outside. He said nowhere, but I’m still hopeful this place exists. And when I find this place I will move there and wear scarfs and messy buns all day, every day.   **Update: After many comments from dear readers, it turns out this place does exist — it is a special place called San Diego.  I am packing my bags today.

    I think I need to add leopard print to my wardrobe!! For some reason that print scared me until the last year or so haha.  Maybe I will start with a pair of shoes…baby steps.  Cute post!!

    well you’re still rocking it even with the neck eating scarf and extra messy bun so don’t fret. although if you do find this magical no wind place let me know, i’ve spent too many years in cities that could double as wind tunnels.

  10. Super cute outfit.  Love the blue pants with leopard, wouldn’t have thought to do that, but I will be adding that to my list of outfits to wear with my blue pants!  And hey, windblown hair is what the Victoria Secret models go for, so you’re right on track!

    I totally agree with you on the cuffed pant thing – being over 5’8″ has its upsides and downsides for sure.  Btw, we have the most ridiculous wind here (because we live right near one of the great lakes) and I completely relate to the photo-taking issues it causes.

  107. Third Generation San Diegan here. It is not really any more windy here than any other town. Of course it is windy if you are right on the beach but in most of city – no wind. 

    However, my fam always tells me to tell everyone it sucks here (so that no one else moves here – too many transplants). So…. I change my mind – Yes there is TONS of wind – and the weather totally sucks. 😉

    All my life I complained:  too hot, too cold, too humid, etc., etc.  My dad told me that the only place I would be happy is San Diego.  When I finally went on a vacation there, they had record highs in the 90’s that week.  Everyone there said it never happens.  My dumb luck or it follows me around.

  113. Um, these pants are making me so jealous. Dear Kendi, Magically turn me into your size and give me all your clothes? I WANT COBALT PANTS. You are so fantastically amazing. I love leopard and colors and you are rocking it today. Boom-shaka-laka.

    Haha, I feel you about the wind! I always get grumpy when it gets windy and in Oklahoma, that is ALWAYS.

    Great shoes! I’ve really been on the look out for some nice looking platforms.

    Great photos, great post!

    Gorgeous outfit! Those trousers are amazing, and they completely look like they are meant to be that way. I know what you mean about difficulty with length for tall girls-I’m six foot so can’t buy trousers in lots of places and they are too short and it’s almost impossible to buy shoes!

    your style is so classy and personal! i love the way you mix concepts and colors. i live in houston, and next time i am in dallas, i am most definitely going to make a stop at bloom! i’ve looked at the site, of course, but i have had to make a rule with myself about online shopping… which is i am not allowed to do it! i could see myself making an exception for bloom someday though :) anyway, i love your blog, and YOU are beautiful!

    I was going to comment and tell you San Diego…and you have already written that.  Although we do have our “Santa Ana” winds, where it’s super dry and hot, but they don’t happen very often.

  149. I complain about the wind every day. You’d think after living in Nebraska, then Oklahoma, and now Texas that I’d be used to it.. but.. no.. especially when trying to take some frickin’ pictures. haha. oh well. I love your pants, and as a fellow tall girl, I find myself making excuses for my slightly-too-short pants as well. *sigh*. 
    Oh, and I like your new header and over-all look. :) Very pretty!

  158. Luce says:

    I’m tall as well (5’9) and struggling with this trend because I’m not exactly sure just how high to cuff them. I had this hilarity of a problem today only to change back to trousers.

    Also, is it just me, or do these pants also become baggier as the day goes by? I feel like I’m wearing a diaper!
