Navy lace ankle pants with purple cardigan and bubble necklace

This week I’ve been feeling rather uninspired. Then I remembered I hadn’t worn these navy lace pants since November and knew I wanted to wear them this week! But then I couldn’t figure out what to wear with them. Purple cardigan? Okay. Lighter purple shirt? Okay. Oh! Purple bubble necklace! Got it!

Still, I think my husband had to take about 100 photos of this outfit to get two that I liked. Not sure if it was the outfit, my (lack of) posing skills, or the angle of where he was standing, but it just wasn’t happening for me.

So these are the two I liked the best. And even then I don’t love them. But, I do love the purple paired with the navy. Such a fun color combination! I’m also hoping to wear these pants a bit more this spring since I bought them right at the tail end of cropped pants season last year. What colors would you like to see with them?

    omg I LOVE those crops! Adorable! My office sadly doesn’t allow crops despite the fact they look professional.

    MAN do those pants look black. I wouldn’t have known if you hadn’t said otherwise! I’m also impressed that you wear lace pants in general. I can do lace on top, but on the bottom? Much more hesitant. But then again, I’m super hesitant to wear anything not-neutral and not-plain on the bottom, because I don’t have much pants confidence. Haha.

      I think the fact that these are all the same color (and, yes, navy is difficult to photograph well) but just have texture makes them a good transition from wearing plain bottoms to printed bottoms.

    Those pants are awesome! They’d look really great with yellow and red…maybe light pink, too? I also sometimes really love the look of navy and black, so that might be worth a shot, too 🙂
