Horse of a different color

Last winter I was all about the wild tights. It seemed like the crazier, the better, and I added so many new pairs to my collection.

Then this year I pretty much go and ignore them all, leaving them stuffed in the bottom drawer where I have to dump them all out just to find what I want - so I've been wearing my plain black pairs over and over again.

So, I'm making a point to bring more of them out again. Brightly colored tights certianly make a big statement.

I love the colourful tights! So much so that I brought about 8 pairs with me to Australia. Silly me, I've only been able to wear 2 pairs in 4 months. Can't wait till it get's colder!

This is such a gorgeous, sophisticated look! I love the pop of color that your red tights gave. I admit I am scared to wear color tights but you pull it off so well!

For some reason when I started reading and then scrolled down to see the picture my head "expected " to see yellow tights.... but I love the red.
That is such a pretty look.
I wore tights yesterday and I think they were ruined as when I took them off Marshmallow just ran with them under the bed....

I love your bag!! I also bought a couple of colored tights last year but this year all I want to wear are black tights, I love your outfit so much, it looks great.

Courtney Erin said...

I really need to get some more colored tights...I'm always just unsure that I'll wear them and then I gush over everyone else's so much.

Yay for your horse blouse again! And, I have been a big fan of colored tights since I could remember. I am so glad that they are back and I can relish in their loveliness for now!

Robyn said...

Love the whole thing! I'm still a bit shy about brightly colored tights. The riskiest I've gotten is nude fishnets. :)

This outfit is so exciting, those tights are just the cherry on top. I, too, have abandoned my colorful tights a bit (which is a shame since I have a shit ton of them) so this makes me want to include them in like, all my future outfit posts for the rest of winter.

I love that blouse of yours. The pattern is so cute, and those heels are just lovely. Low heels, ahh!

Amber said...

the brighter the better! I think bold tights in the winter are so much more fun than plain ole black ones. Glad to see you breaking out the colored tights :)

stringsandbuttons said...

You did a great job mixing and matching colors and textures. P.S. Gave you an award on my blog..check it out :)

Alex Elizabeth said...

I was just looking at my hot pink tights and thinking "when am I actually going to wear these". Maybe I should try to put them together with something for fashion week :) These red tights to definitely make more a statement than black would, and they really make your t-straps stand out!

Couture said...

The red tights sure draw some attention! It's lovely that the hint of red comes back in your earrings!

silvergirl said...

The Closet Shopper said...

So many things to say. I LOVE your hair like that. So cute. Those tights just made that look so freak'n over the top cute. That skirt is amazing. Too many superlatives? I'm sorry I can't help it.

I guess I just really liked your look today.

OH and the bag! Dying.

xo,
Tracy

Pretty tights!

I have that blouse, but I haven't worn it yet. I've seen you wear it a few different ways, all of which are great. I need to take a cue from you!

That horse shirt is awesome!! I need some animal tops now.

Melina said...

I literally do the same thing with my tights... they've just become an obstacle! Though I think it's because last year the weather was a bit cooler here, so I haven't really gotten the chance to wear them this year.

Either way, I'll always love a bright pair executed well, like this! I love how horse print and bright tights sound sort of whimsical and childish when you think of them, but this outfit actually looks really chic and ladylike!
