And Once More for the Cheap Seats

and once more

and once more

Ladies and Gentleman of the Jury, I know I am a repeat offender. But if the jury will pause before its verdict, I will provide persuasive evidence for why I have to keep wearing the red pants: it's a busy week; the red pants are at the top of the drawer and so easy to grab and go; they are great for bicycling in because they don't get caught in the chain and they have great visibility; the cheerful color galvanizes me; they have a lot of lycra so I can curl up at a coffeeshop working for hours in comfort. I rest my case.

I do believe I'll be wearing the very same red pants later today, so I certainly can't point fingers!

Ki said...

It's ok, I've worn my yellow cords twice this week. :D

Courtney Erin said...

I'd vote to acquit - you pull them off brilliantly and they sound very practical.

If you feel fabulous in those red pants I say wear them every single day! You look great in them!!!

Erin said...

I typically avoid red unless it's a shoe or jewelry, but seeing all your outfits with the red pants, I'm thinking I need to reconsider this aversion.

Looks and Books said...

These red pants are a winner. I would declare you not guilty for wearing them multiple days in a row.

Also, thank you for using "galvanize" in a blog post.

shefoundstyle said...

Alright! You've convinced me. I'm off to pick up a pair this weekend!

Danielle said...

You inspired my outfit today! I've been meaning to wear my red pants, but haven't. So when I woke up to and saw your post, I knew today was the day :)

Callie said...

I love seeing these bright bottoms in multiple outfits. It just shows how completely versatile they are! I love how you layered the neutral sweater over the stripes. It makes for a wonderful contrast. Adorable!

Okay, okay... after seeing you wear your red pants about 100 times... I really want a pair! So, could you tell me if they run true to size, or not? I think we are similarly shaped (based on your pictures), but I'm not sure what to order. Thanks for being an inspiring, fellow grad-student, re-mixer!

m.e. said...

I think it is great that you show such a cool piece (bright, fun bottoms) worn so many different ways. Happy creativity!

Caitlin said...

Well I do believe I like yesterday's and today's red pants outfits the best so far! :)

Jen said...

Something about red pants screams "Party!" in the best way possible. Love!

If they looked bad on you you might need to apologize, but they are pretty much awesome so you are good to go.

I say keep at it because I love those jeans on you! I want to copy this look ASAP!

{molly beth} said...

I'm wearing red pants in my post today too... All I have to say is, great minds think alike :] I love how you layered the sweater and stripes!

FutureLint said...

They're all such different looks I think you can KEEP wearing them!

Danielle from Harper said...

It almost doesn't feel like you're repeating because they look pink in some pics and red in others depending on the light. Either way, they look awesome on you! And I can't believe those boots are from Target...they look much higher quality.

Samantha Manzella said...

Oh, please don't apologize for repeating! Those jeans are fabulous. I'd love a pair for myself, too. Never apologize for wearing what you want to wear and expressing yourself. :)

Elizabeth Lessing said...

I have always thought you would make a good lawyer. Convincing, sensible and articulate.

jackie mae said...

I love your honesty because we all do it-- we are all repeat offenders with our favorite pieces. You are just brave enough to admit it and post it!

sartoriography said...

You are not messing around with these pants and I love it. I think the last outfit was my favorite, mainly because of the color palate, but I love the red with the stripes, too. You're a red pants fiend!!

Court said...

Love, and you've inspired me to get some red pants!

wildchild said...

haha my favorite justification you gave is that they have good visibility for bike riding. you practical thinker, you :)

Keep repeating, I like it!

Bah, wearing the same pants twice in a row? I've been wearing the same jeans for over a week (don't worry, I wash them). In my defense, they are the only pants that fit me and I'm overseas where the jeans are sooo expensive. Back to the subject of your outfit, I love it!

Sorcha said...

So much more fun than boring old regular coloured jeans! :)

My verdict is in: NOT GUILTY!

If the shoe, I mean pants, fit-wear em'!

Love this post. You always write so well and are dressed the same way!

Cheers

golly I'm so inspired by the red and burgundy- hey, which UO red jeans ARE they? i can't tell from the posts -- a corally red pair, or the bright red? or what? maybe I need to go try on (a project, with baby in tow. but darn, those are cute!)
