When I saw Laura wear her cropped red pants with boots and a sweater I knew I wanted to recreate the outfit with items in my own closet.  Sadly, after I put it on and took pictures I realized that marathon training (and my subsequent desire to EAT ALL THE THINGS) has not been kind to me.  Plus, it’s been awhile since I wore these pants and now they’re a little too tight in certain areas.  I ended up swapping out the crewneck sweater for a long oatmeal colored cardigan so I would feel less exposed.

But the point of this post is not to talk about pants that are a tad too small.  Nope, it’s to talk about the many ways I’ve worn these pants since “Pants” are the topic of the second day of 5 Days, 5 Ways.  Actually, this post is kind of a cop-out because I did a past post showing 9 different ways I’ve worn these red pants!

Still, other than a quickie photo from last year’s trip to New York City this is the first time I’ve showcased these pants for cold weather wear.  See, if your cropped pants are narrow enough at the ankle you can wear them all year round by putting boots over them!  Pretty neat, huh?

Want your own cropped red pants?  Here are a few that might fit the bill!
