Color Me In Love

Color me in Love

Color me in Love

Works Cited
cord skirt: thrifted
white tee: jeremy's
pink tank (underneath): old navy
sweater: on loan from my sister
belt: old navy (circa a million years ago)
tights: we love colors
boots: ll bean (who else?)
ring: shopkim

Look, I know we're all getting sick of winter (and the extra two inches of snow we got last night didn't exactly help), but facing the cold this morning is a little easier because I have new tights to wear (eeee!). After all the talk on What I Wore about we love colors tights, I finally decided to fill the maroon-colored hole in my tights collection and I bought myself a pair (okay, two).

Best (things to cover my legs) ever

I can say that the rumors are true--these are the best tights I've ever put on. Warm, thick, and the color is amazing. So today, in all their pink-ish post-Valentine's day glory, I'm breaking out the tights with my trusty Bean boots (I don't know how I'd make it through snowy days without them now). Now I am hoping I win the giveaway on Healthy and Homemade and get to buy myself another pair!

I wore my new maroon pair yesterday! Definitely am a fan....so opaque. Your outfit looks so sweet and cheery (perfect with this cold, dreary weather)!

Emily Kennedy said...

Oooh, good. A review from you is always helpful. I read somewhere else recently that WLC tights are scratchy. But when you say warm and thick, I think that probably works for me.

Sal said...

You did the right thing - colorful tights are the key to surviving winter. ;)

Amy said...

All these great talk about We Love Color tights, I think I am going to have to buy myself a pair or two...or 5 (lol)... I love the maroon!

Fashion Therapist said...

I have to try these tights. I've been hearing about them since last year and I really should give in because they have every single color you can think of and I hear they're super thick!

Julie said...

Oh, the pink and maroon and yellow of the corduroy are so pretty together. Love them. I am buying some of those tights right now! How reasonably priced!

xo, Alexi said...

I love the fact that you wore the chunky boots with such a lovely, feminine outfit. I keep hearing great things about those tights, I guess I must try them at some point myself!

hillary said...

Emily said...

I've been hearing a lot about We Love Color tights. I'll have to check them out soon. You ordered such pretty colors. And, speaking of colors, I really like the lovely array in your outfit.

Love this outfit! Such great color pairings - that coral cardigan is a gorgeous shade! And I've been intruiged by that brand of tights, so I'm glad to hear your take on them. Once the shopping break is over, I might get a few new colorful pairs!

Hillary said...

These colors are beautiful!

Charmalade said...

I LOVE We Love Colors! This reminds me that I've been really hankering for a golden/yellow pair for awhile now, and I need to take advantage of Jessica's deal!

Sweet outfit. :)

I love the coloring in your outfit!! Those tights are such a pretty color, I should have gotten some in maroon! ^_^

I haven't been able to pull off coloured tights yet - I have one electric blue pair. I like how you wore them, the whole outfit is colourful without being loud. Looks great.

oh great review on those tights, I've been eye them for a while but wasn't sure...

LOVE your color combo!

ANA said...

Love it, this outfit is super cute! Do you find the tights are comfortable? I want to try them, but I'm a little worried about the crotch not having a gusset and it being a little uncomfortable...

Law Girl said...

I really like the pink! You look very sweet :)

jesse.anne.o said...

I think I might be ready to make the plunge for duck boots. I keep wavering but they look cute on you.

anotherfishinthesea said...

This outfit made me smile :) I might have to bite the bullet on those tights too... hmmm...

DEA said...

Love the colors and I even LOVE the boots with this. So JCrew!

anagha said...

Love it! As a fellow Californian, I am absolutely a fan of wearing ridiculously bright colors when everything around is grey and white. (I wore a school bus-yellow shirt today.) It is, in my opinion the best way to beat the winter blues!

Clare said...

It's good to know how great those tights are; I've been hankering for a pair myself. I adore the color of that particular pair, and the combination with the ll bean boots is so cute!

Dottie said...

Great color combos! I have not heard of this brand of tights before. My current favorite is HUE. How do these compare?

Christen said...

So are they better than Hue tights? They look incredible on you - such a great color!

Jessica Joan said...

You look great!! Such good colors!!!

And just an FYI to your readers, they can get 10% of their pair plus free shipping with code WHATIWORE until the end of the month!!

Rock on!

LyddieGal said...

I love brightly colored tights - great color choices!
If I were you I would continually 'forget' to return the cardigan...

myedit said...

Hmmm. so the tights are all they are cracked up to be? I wouldn't mind a pair of durable and pretty tights to banish this blah, actually, I wouldn't mind spring so I could banish the tights.
I love the colours you have going on here. So pretty.

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

@ana: i admit i have no idea what a gusset is but the crotch was fine for me, and i am VERY particular about sagging-crotch-in-tights.
@christen: yes, better than hue (and i LOVE hue)!

silence sweetheart said...

PASTEL PINK AND MUSTARD?
Seriously the best colour combination I've seen in a while. Lovelovelovelove.

Jen said...

ahhhh this has got to be the best color combination i've seen in the longest time! i'm so in love with it i might have to copy it. everywhere i go there's someone raving about we love colors! now i HAVE to get a pair...i just can't seem to pick a color haha

piglet said...

Love this, the colours are so pretty!

La Historiadora de Moda said...

I love We Love Colors tights, too! The color combination you've got going on here is great on you. I may have to revise my blue Nerd thesis.

Lisa said...

Love the outfit, and the tights! I've heard a lot of WLC. I'm always in search of thick tights, so maybe I'll have to try them out, and of course the colors are amazing.

megara said...

Love this outfit. The color combo is so very j.crew-ish. :)

e. said...

What a great outfit and combination of colors. I also love the boots with this! I got my Bean Boots (slightly different style--I really like yours but they don't come in my size) and they're keepers! I'm actually looking forward to *more* snow now. :)

Meet Virginia said...
