Pop of leopard

I liked the idea of leopard tights done in more of a fishnet style than a print. It seemed like a good way to be a bit more subtle and classy than having leopard print legs. For just under $6, these Old Navy tights were a steal, although now I'm wondering if I should have gotten them in the brown instead of the black...

I felt like this outfit really needed the pop of red, so I added the cloche, though you have to understand that I did not wear the hat to work. I would get made fun of. No one wears hats in the office.*

*No one but me wears skirts or tights either, but the hat would be pushing it.

Love this look. I've got those same stockings and I seriously love them. They look great like this. I hadn't quite figured out how to wear them in a 'work-appropriate' way.

Oh mah gawd, yet another favorite lyddie outfit. YOU LOOK SO CLASSY. I use that word on you so much, but it is basically what you are. CLASSY. Class. Classiness. You have so much class, you should be a teacher. Ha. I'm funny. Not really. OKAY.

Cute cute hat. And that shirt/skirt combo makes you look aaaammmaazing. Your hair is pretty, too. My lovely Lyddie.

I love your hat and the tights and I totally know what you mean. I feel way out of place wearing a hat to work.

OMG you and Bessie are almost twins today! http://www.bravoerunway.com/2011/11/simply-glamorous.html

Simple but bold is definitely one of my favorite ways of dressing. And the tights are awesome-- somewhere perfectly in between subtle and stand-out.

What a classy and polished look! The red hat added looks so ladylike, but the leopard tights are fun :)

Love the tights! :)

eek said...

I love the cloche - you're right, it adds the perfect amount of color. Those tights are fantastic too.

Vanessa said...

I do wear my hats to work and get made fun of often! (It's also a little unbearably hot to wear them inside all day, however!)

TiAnna Mae said...

I'm loving everything about this outfit! I could definitely rock this.

Rebecca said...

It's too bad that your coworkers can't appreciate the hat, because it looks great on you.

laura said...

You look spectacular and that red had is the PIECE !
Your co workers need a little bit more of styling in their lives..... I wear a hat at least once a month.

Amber Blue Bird said...

those tights are too cute. I havent been in Old Navy in forever. I need to stop in and check out their goodies. No one dresses up in my office either except me. Weirdos.

What a great outfit for work, I love how subtle those tights are! That hat is fantastic, is it a recent Kohls purchase cause I really want one now!

So beautiful!

Melina said...

I am seriously LOVING that top and belted skirt combination! The length of the skirt is just perfect for fall and the drape of the blouse makes me envious. I feel like my blouses never quite have that perfect type of drape... though only a style blogger would over-analyze that much, huh?

Kavery said...

That hat suits you very well indeed as does the tights. Nice ensemble.

Shey said...

Oh you look beautiful, I wish hats where back, like people would see them as a normal thing because they look so good, like yoou I'm alone in the skirt and tight wearing at work, most teachers just wear jeans and pants, I think it's a good thing to be different. For now the berets are the only hat I can still wear and feel comfortable in.

Clara Turbay said...

i like your sense of style chic and simple at the same time.
