stumps: awkward or awesome?

Coat - J.Crew {similar, on sale!}
Sweater - Banana Republic {similar}
Jeans - Citizens of Humanity {similar}
Heels - Jessica Simpson {similar}
Snood - Homemade {similar, lots on etsy}
I am so thrilled that jeans can be found in every shape and color these days, and have jumped on board with high-waisted, flare, skinny, red, blue, and green varieties (to name a few). 
When wearing my flare leg/bellbottom denim I am always vigilant to avoid the stump leg look and sport shoes that show from beneath the bottoms. 
But last week I saw Sydney rocking the phantom foot look, and now I don't know what to think!
So, what do you think? In spirit of Awkward&Awesome, which camp does this fall into? Should your shoes show from under your jeans, or do you think the column of jeans is leg-lengthening?
 Personally, I usually just want to show off my cute shoes!
See - told you I'm wearing {cute} shoes!

- Currently having two pimples on either side of my forehead that resemble Devil horns... just perfect!
- Doug had a stomach issue last weekend... I will spare you the details... but it. was. horrid.
- My lips are shedding their skin... like snakes, but less cool and more ow!
- Eating ramen noodles for the rest of the month so I can afford the new Spring fashions (but seriously)

- Got my Winter fix, Nashville had snow flurries last weekend... some even stuck around for a few hours!
- Mint jeans... I finally got a pair (two actually, but sending one back), 
I'll fill you in on details and share photos soon
- Having my boyfriend make me my own beer... a Dunkelwizen, that is perfectly banana-y and clove-y! DE-Lish!

What's your awkward and awesome-ness? Spill it!

    I like this look!  I think if the jeans are long enough, it looks great!!

  3. I think it's awesome! Although your shoes are super cute, so as long as they get some opportunities to get shown off ; ) Cute outfit, pose, blog, jeans, scarf...I could go on!



  4. I love your scarf & the yellow. I have a yellow shirt I want to style for tomorrow and still not sure how I am going to do it, this looks cute though! http://seventwentysomethings.blogspot.com/

  5. Your shoes are hot, definitely show them off! Poor Doug :( Jinx also had a stomach bug and he's been on a rice/chicken diet. Thankfully it seems to be working! I'm also saving up for spring clothes...buying them a little bit at a time :)
