Daydream in blue

These are one of my favorite pairs of tights - they are just so turquoise! I could have easily thrown on a subtler pair of blue tights today, but I wear those all the time. These were just so much more appropriate for rainbow tights week.

I was about to walk out the door in a pair of boring black pumps when these little blue beauties caught my eye. I almost dismissed them, thinking they'd never look good - but how wrong I was - what perfection!!

I must say that I've loved rainbow tights week, it has veiled some of my favorite outfits this year (you know, topping nine whole days is tough.)

I can also say that I wore my tights free of commentary from anyone. Which either means that I did such a great job of styling them that they didn't seem outlandish or out of place, or that everyone is so desensitized to my bold fashion choices they didn't notice.

Those turquoise tights are great! I don't think I could pull them off like you do, my favorite outfit has got to be yesterday's green tights, I loved everything about it!

The brown print dress with the yellow Betsy Johnson tights was my favorite look of the week! It 's tough though...your pictures are so good!

Great mix of blues! I think your coworkers must expect you to wear some fabulous every day.

It might be too hard to pick, but I love the outfit with the pretty pink tights! I really like it against the other neutral colors in the outfit :)

Blythe and Charlotte said...

By the way: Thanks for your advice! I'll definitely have to try that! I hadn't thought of changing that. I also took these pictures a while ago and since then I've learned about setting something as an object of focus and then standing in front of it, which helps. I'm sure your suggestion will make a big difference too! Thanks again!

You use colour so well and always find new ways to show case your outfits.

Oh, My Darling said...

Three cheers for bright, fun tights!!!!

La Historiadora de Moda said...

Those tights and shoes together are perfection!

I really wish this tights challenge hadn't coincided with the first week of a new term for me, when I tend to up the conservative factor in my outfits.

Well done, Lydia. I love how no one commented and that could only mean two things. LOL.

My fave look from rainbow tights week has to be the plum tights - they're super nice. Oh! And I REALLLLLLY love that top from your last post (with the olive tights) - wow, gorgeous.

Those tights and shoes are the perfect pop of color! I loved all your rainbow tights looks. I think yellow may have been my fave because I seem to be obsessed with the color lately.

I have some tights this color that I WILL wear to campus this semester and I'll bet I get some comments too.

Jessica said...

Such an unexpected color! I love it! My favorite was the outfit with the mustard-colored tights. I don't have a pair in that shade and it makes me realize how versatile they could be!

The Urban Fashion Gal said...

Love this! My fave is the look with the purple tights.

The Fancy Teacup said...

Wow, the turquoise tights are amazing on you, you pulled them off quite well with those vivid beauties of heels! I especially love the outfit post of your olive colored tights this week.

Turquoise was a great choice. I can see why you love them.

Alex Elizabeth said...

My favorite is yesterday's (the colors and that cardigan!!) but I think this one is a close second. I've loved seeing your tights this week! Maybe sometime soon I'll actually try to wear my pink and yellow ones!

That blue and turquoise look lovely together :)

I think my favourite would have to be the yellow though!

Great outfit Lydia! I love the color coordination and I have found that HUE tights are my faves too, after Rainbow Tights Week!

Between Laundry Days said...

I'm such a sucker for mustard this season, so I'm loving the yellow tights outfit! And I really love the asymmetrical pattern on that blouse!

Sara said...

Randomly, I liked the yellow ones best! I never thought I'd say that. haha
