You know what’s cruel? Posting old photos of a good hair day on a day that you aren’t having a good hair day. It’s a reminder of what could have been. Sigh.
This post was about to become an ode to mint jeans, but as I was looking at these photos I realized that these “ankle-cut jeans” don’t actually hit my ankles. I’m eye-balling it but that’s a good 3 inches up from my ankles, which makes them “cankle-cut jeans”. I’m not sure I would have bought them had I noticed the word ‘cankle’ on the tag. But on the other hand, I have mint colored jeans so that trumps overly long ankles any day.

  1. Love how you style your mint jeans.  I want mint jeans but never have the courage to buy them yet.

  2. tomato/tomaaahhto ankle/cankle, i think this is a fantastic outfit and i’m going to borrow it right away. mint + navy + tan.
    i have a pair of mint cords and it has taken all my willpower not to buy a pair of mint jeans TOO because it just seems wasteful (pioneer ancestors and all are tsk-tsking in my sub-conscious) plus it is so hot in DC there might be 1.5 days in which to wear pants until october, at which point the cool color will be tomato or coral or lemon or something else altogether! woof, it’s a rough life.

    1. I found a great pair at Target for $20…so it’s okay if you can only wear them 1.5 times! (Not the ones Kendi linked to…these ones aren’t available online, but they are in stores)

  3. Having mint colored jeans TOTALLY trumps overly long ankles, or cankles for that matter. I’ve been wanting a pair for a HOT minute!  Girl this outfit is FAB!  And remember how it’s secretly annoying that you dress SO darn well & are so darn pretty & that you’re HILARIOUS? Praise the Lord for bloggers who are actually funny!  Keep it comin’ sista!  Love your stuff.  xoxo


  4. You’re hilarious. I love mint jeans. Haven’t found a pair to take home yet, though!

  5. I think they’re a good length, all of my supposedly ankle pants hit at the same spot. Oh, tall girl problems. Love the mint paired with dark blue.

  6. I’m so jealous of your mint jeans! I can’t seem to find them anywhere in my size! Love this combo and the flowy top is gorgeous. 

  7. I love your cankle cut jeans, no matter where they hit! 😉 They’re super cute, and I think they’re the perfect length! Be glad you’re not like me. Capris hit my ankles. hahaha

  8. You’re so pretty! I love the colors in this outfit. That blouse looks so comfy and it’s perfectly on trend! xo


  10. So gorgeous!! Love the blue & mint together… 
    Gonna try this out one day 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration…www.theyoungertwingirl.blogspot.com

  11. Hahaha the cankle part is funny! Who would ever buy jeans with a label comme ca! And I am in love with that top, I have a similar cut one which I now want to go put on but this blue can’t be denied as the best colour ever! And from Bloom…I’m loving this brand of yours!

  12. Oh…… You think having long legs is a curse? How would you like to exchange them for mine? Bet you don’t have problem like having someone else’s armpit in your face at the END of the day on a crowded train. I tried abt every pair of ankle jeans in zara. Loved the ones with the zip details but damn it! They are all a good 3 to 4 inch longer than I would like to have them… And yeah.. I drank loads of milk..swam a lot Bulls* they work! :p long legs are great! long legs! Long legs! Long legs!


  13. i’d call them capris. but i feel that would be kind of mean, because…well…capris. Right? ick.
    but those are cute.

  14. I just got these exact same mint jeans from Target last week and I was so amazed by how well they fit especially length wise. I am only 5’2″ so I always get excited when I come across a pair of pants that I don’t have to fold or hem up. After seeing this post, it dawned on me that these pants fit so perfectly because they are ANKLE JEANS. I did not realize that when I bought them and now I have concluded that ankle pants are the best thing to ever happen to shorties like me. Thank you Kendi!

  15. is it odd that i just want to give you a huge hug? Youre so adorable! Im really craving some mint jeans. I have so many things that would look good with them! Im glad you posted where you got this pair! Theyre the right shade. Btw, love your little doodles on your pictures! So unique and cute.


  16. I always feel a bit off in ankle pants, maybe because I feel like I’m wearing too small of pants aka “cankle-cut”. HA i may just steal that new term and use it as often as possible.

  17. I feel like everyday is a bad hair day lately. Driving me nuts!


  18. Haha, I’m in exactly the same camp. All ankle cut jeans are cankle cut on me. o well. They still look super fab on you! love this outfit 🙂

    1. I tried some ankle crops on the other day and they barely went over my calf muscles.  And in a skinny fit, it was not flattering 🙁

  19. Really love the mint green ‘cankle’ cut jeans! I was having a hard time finding a pair. Will definitely have to stop by Target and see if I can find a pair. Ty Ty!


  20. love your outfit and so jealous of your canckle jeans – can’t find a perfect pair :-/ 

  21. “Everyday” in your blog title should be two words: “Every day”… Common misuse, but they are used for different purposes.

  22. I don’t know how long I can go on without mint jeans. Especially now that I’ve seen this colour combo! Great outfit, you look fantastic!

  23. your hair is getting so long!

    love this outfit, chic and comfy

  24. LOVE those jeans…I’m literally running to go buy them. And by running, I mean walking quickly and driving in my car because I’m wearing heels, duh. 🙂 So cute! 

  25. Do you know the power you have? I bought that Melie Bianco purse because I saw you carrying it one too many times and decided it would be my next purse! I hate purse shopping, so much so that I will carry the same purse for like two years, at which point, said purse will become worn out and I will be forced to shop for a new one. I’m quite happy with the choice. Thanks for showcasing it!

  26. I have the same problem you have! I am 5’10 and it’s rare things hit me in the places they are suppose to! Still looks cute on you though!

  27. ha, i literally snorted – as i was taking a big bite of a pb&j sandwich – when i read “cankle-cut jeans.” can you please pass on to me your awesome sense of humor and writing style? oh, and your closet. that, too.

  28. the mint is pretty, but i’m all about the blue, it looks like the perfect shade of floaty blue blouse!

  29. Love your sense for color combos.  Also, the pant length looks fantastic on you, in my humble opinion.  Thanks for all the inspiration you provide here.  Love your looks and enjoy your cute personality.  🙂

  30. um, i don’t wish to alarm you but i LOVE this outfit. oh my gourd, i needs me some mint jeans. ridiculous.

  31. Seeing gorgeously styled mint jeans everywhere is driving me crazy – I’d like to snap up a pair but I’m on a shopping ban (for my 30×30!) so have to restrain myself… 😉 Great look!

  32. I have a shirt similar to that from H&M! I never thought to pair it with mint… I like! I’ll have to try that out.

  33. Um, right. The mint jeans are nice (length be darned) but it’s the deep blue top that steals the show. That color looks great on you. I like the gold necklace against it too: a timeless combination.

  34. I think having mint colored jeans totally trumps their length haha

  35. Absolutely beautiful smile in that last picture! Very adorable outfit. As always, your color scheme is amazing!

  36. I love your style! I love your necklace too! Can you tell me where it's from! Love the "b" for your hubby!

  37. I love everything about this outfit!!! The mint jeans are amazing and the blouse looks so cute with it! (: ADORABLE.


  38. Love this outfit – navy and mint always looks so great together! As for cankles, pfft, you’re cray cray if you think you lack long ankles! x

  39. #tallgirlproblems     …I’m sorry. I don’t even have a twitter, I swear! 

    But seriously this happens to me all the time. This is why I pretty much only buy 36″ inseam jeans.

  40. Such a cute outfit. Love it. Thanks for the tip on Payless shoes. I had all but given up on them until this post : )

  41. I think Navy blue is YOUR colour!!!! You look stunning in this simple but yet chic outfit!!! Kisses from Greece!!!

  42. Mint colored jeans are the shit! I just wore some yesterday and I think they’re my new best friends. The only unfortunate thing about them is you can’t wear them every day because everyone will know…or can you?

  43. Cankles or no cankles, those jeans look great! (no cankles in your case)
    You do great color combos. I’m not sure I would have put those together but I LOVE this whole outfit (and your hair looks great too!)

  44. I want mint colored jeans!!!

    And I completely understand the whole cankle-cut jeans. I’m 5’9 so those ankle jeans do not look the same on me as someone shorter, but I figured I’d just go with it and embrace it haha. 

  45. Like the floaty top with the button placket, so pretty!

  46. I don’t think I would buy cankle jeans either.  But it looks good on you, though 😉

  47. I have the same jeans and have the opposite problem, not one bit of my ankle shows. Still, I feel the same you do, I have mint coloured jeans. Love your colour combo!

  48. I love this outfit!   The color combo is fantastic and these mint skinnys look great on you! No worries about the length:-)  I can’t find the perfect pair in mint…everything I like is either sold out or too pricey.  

  49. AMAZING POST:) Your blog is so wonderful and I will happily follow.

    If you want some décor inspiration from Sweden, check out my blog:)
    Have an awesome week.

    LOVE Maria at inredningsvis.se

  50. i love your outfit sooo much. i love those two colors together, very beautiful. great blog. I follow you. Follow me back please? 🙂


  51. I love this outfit — I have the same problem with “ankle-length” pants because I’m 5’10”, but I think they look fab on you!

  52. I’m in love with mint jeans, yours look amazing! Love them paired with the easy, lightweight, flowy top!

  53. First of all, you DON’T have cankles. Second, I am tall and some ankle jeans hit me in the same place. It doesn’t bother me because there are so many pant lengths on the streets these days.Third, if pant leg isn’t too tapered I might fold it up to make the length shorter on purpose. Fourth, you look great as always.
