Down that yellow brick road

It's day two of the rainbow tights challenge, and today I am in bright yellow. I've paired them with one of my favorite dresses, which is black and brown and gold, and my super warm green cardigan.

I took the belt off the cardi and tied it around the dress, and added my layered chains.

Years ago, I hated yellow, but now I love it, and embrace it. I love the brightness it adds to the outfit and to this cold winter day. Before the blog, I don't know that I could have worn yellow tights, to school, to work - but now I can make bold fashion choices and not worry about what others might think.

I made a very delibrate choice to not wear knee high boots this week to better show case the tights.
The weathermen are predicting a huge snow storm tomorrow which will make the shoes I chose very impractical. So I may have to change them, unless work is canceled. Then I won't wear any shoes at all :)

  7. Gasp! You didn't like yellow at one point?! Shame on you! ;-)

    I'm surprised you're rocking such cute shoes in the snow. I wear winter boots en route to and from work - then just change when I get there. No need to get real shoes icky.

  9. Wow, you styled those tights well, brave move on bright yellow! Love the little ankle boots too. I found your last post funny too, I think I own too much black as well! You should ban yourself from buying black entirely and see how colourful your closet is by the end of the year!

  18. I think it's funny how we grow up loving one color and as we grow older our taste changes significantly. I'm glad that you like yellow now...one of my fave colors.

  31. I just got these yellow tights and it's amazing how you wear them so perfectly. I love the dress. It's got my favorite evening wear combination....black/ gold.

    Your photos are such an inspiration. I have recently been finding it quite hard to take outfit shots because of the below negative temperatures, snow and freezing wind...but you look so effortless. :)

    Love
