Madewell widelegger

Today's post is for the petite ladies.  It's great that brands are now coming out with petite lengths for pants and jeans but I will say that a 30-31 inch inseam is sadly still too long for me.  Seriously.  I wear a 27 inch inseam for flats and maybe 29 inches for heels.  That's another reason why I dislike pants because my proportions are usually off (longer torso, short short legs).  Heels are a great way to offset some of that, hence my endless search for comfort shoes with a heel--and these No. 6 clogs certainly fit the bill, giving me 3 inches of height but are wearable and walkable every day.   Next, these Madewell wideleggers are close to the perfect pant because of the shape of the leg.  It hugs in at the thighs and knees then flares out at the bottom, giving the appearance of length.  From a gal who doesn't love pants, these are actually my favorite so that's saying a lot!  I highly recommend them and they're on super sale right now as well!  ps. I still had to hem them but other than that, they're still pretty perfect!

Pants: Madewell
Shoes: No. 6


  1. I love this outfit on you, Sharon, and the jeans are perfection. I've been toying with the idea of getting a pair of the Madewell wideleggers because of Grechen's high praise, and now you! That and those No.6 clogs. Clogs make me feel so stable when I'm high...I mean as in "up in the air on heels"! I had foot/ankle surgery a year ago and so no heels for me since. Maybe clogs would do it... (now I'm'll think I really AM high!)

  2. Val--Grechen and I got our wideleggers the same day, we were both so impressed by the fit! Clogs are pretty great though I will admit to a few bobbles here and there--the wood sole isn't the best for gravel or uneven surfaces.
