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?

      They are pretty short for cropped pants. I was a bit disappointed since the image on the website shows them hitting at the ankle. I mean, I have long legs but even still!

    L.O.V.E those pants! I am totally with you on the lace skirt v/s pants thought. Do feature these pants more often 🙂

    I absolutely LOVE those lace pants. They are gorgeous and unique yet still elegant and classy. I know what I’ll be looking for on Black Friday!!!!!!

    I had not idea that you were 5’4, I always had you pegged at 5’10 or something. (You look so tall! I’m going to have to figure out how you do that!)
    These pants, oh wow, I am just drooling over them. they are so bold but they look so wearable, like they would be really easy to pair other items with them. (And that pattern, oh, they are just so pretty.) I cannot wait to see all of the way that you are going to wear them.

      I’m probably closer to 5’3″ and some change but I round it up 🙂 I have really long legs, though, so I think that helps. And making sure my tops elongate my torso seems to make a difference. Or maybe it’s just the camera angel 🙂
