I’m no fan of the ankle-boots-plus-cropped-jeans combo. But it’s more because I’m really tiny, so wearing the mix will only make me look shorter. Sarah Jessica Parker, on the other hand, seems to get away with it despite her petite 5 foot 2 inch frame. It’s like she was born to sport the look, which, by the way, she has done countless times.
Her latest take on what I’d like to call her “signature street style” included a brightly colored striped sweater paired with light denims that were not only folded at the hems but also scrunched to the knees as well. She wore the outfit yesterday while taking her twins to school.

SJP looked really chic in her school run outfit, and her legs didn’t look like they were cut in half. Plus, she made leaving the boots unzipped seem like a cool thing.
The shoes looked insanely familiar, too. A pair from Rag & Bone, perhaps? What do you think? Actually, no, they’re no Rag & Bone booties. They’re not from Isabel Marant either (or are they?). Technically, we’re clueless at the moment.
However, they do seem like a really reliable (and comfortable!) pair that you can mix with several kinds of outfits. If you like how they look and you want to steal SJP’s signature style, you can actually grab the Newbury boots as an alternative.

These Rag & Bone boots retail at a pricey $495 a pair. If you don’t want to spend that much, you can also try these options from Splendid, Ash, and Dolce Vita.
