Navy lace cropped pants may not scream Chicago in the fall to you but I purchased them in October and they’ve been sitting with the tags on just waiting for me to decide when or whether to wear them.  We’re having a bit of a warm streak this week so I decided that the pants had been sitting around long enough.  I actually have a few ideas of what else to wear them with (including a new top making an appearance on Thursday) so I suppose they can find a home in my closet.

And, of course, you have to throw some burgundy into the mix right now.  It’s so very in for fall!  I’ve had this cardigan for a few years and usually wear it with dresses or jeans and riding boots.  However, pairing it with the cropped pants and heels definitely makes the pants seem more cool-weather appropriate as well as balancing out the length of the pants by making me look taller.  Or, at least, that’s what I’ll keep telling my 5’4” self.

So, what do you think?  Would you wear lace pants?  What would you wear them with?
