Works Cited
dress: loft
turtleneck: j crew
scarf: liberty of london for target
tights: we love colors
shoes: target

Today I was really in the mood to wear some purple but didn't have a stitch of it in my 30 items, so I improvised with some bright tights and a patterned scarf. I'm pleased that three dull blue pieces could be so jazzed up with bright accessories and that a gigantic scarf can bring new life to the dress I've worn a billion times before. It feels a little like cheating on the 30 for 30 when I obscure my dress completely with my accessories, but hey, at least I got my purple fix.

Look at our legs! We're twinsies!

Emily said...

Might be my favorite look so far. I love the clean lines, the fitted sleeves, the hair swept off your face. Sophisticated, put together, easy going -- way to do it.

Brooke said...

ah! I love your tights :) Pretty outfit!

inday_adin said...

You look great! I love that purple tights as well. I have not worn any colorful tights so maybe I should try something out of my comfort zone. :) So inspiring!

Not cheating at all. That's what this remix is all about, making things you already own look new.

On a side note, I have my post all queued up for tomorrow with the same title, lol! I guess it was bound to happen.

Cute, cute, cute. I love the bold color combo of your tights & shoes. (wait, are purple and blue bold or am I just REALLY a conservative dresser?)

I've been meaning to buy some Liberty of London prints at Target for a while now and yours is a very enticing one! Do they still have them? I live in Canada, so no Target here...

KT said...

Still have yet to try the belted scarf combo but am thinking this 30 for 30 might force me to give it a whirl for a day. You pull it off so well. - Katy

Sara said...

Hi! I asked on your form spring a while ago about using a picture of you in the lace skirt from target. I wanted to let you know I just did a post about it. Thanks for the picture.
And I love how you wore that scarf. What a good idea!

This is so nice, Tania! I've been struggling with how to pair colored tights and colored shoes -- thanks for giving such a great example! I love the bold print on this scarf, and the pink detailing on the edges.

Thanks for the skirt tutorial, by the way -- I made one of them last night, and it turned out really well. Of course, in a totally typical self-perception fail, I cut the pieces way too big out of concern that they wouldn't fit over my hips, so I have to reconstruct a bit, but your instructions were foolproof on the actual getting it constructed part :)

magdamagda said...

now thats something i really really like:D I might try wearing a scarf like that too;)

Elena said...

Today must be purple's day or something like that.
You look great! Love the way you belt your scarf. I've tried, but I've never happy with the final look on me... have to work it harder!

Mj. said...

So THAT'S how you style a scarf sort of like a vest. Love it! I knew I'd seen you do it before and I've been trying to find that post, to no avail. I'm so glad to find this one.

Little Scribbler said...

The scarf's so pretty. I love how you've belted it. And I'm a firm fan of coloured/patterned tights (mostly on other people on account of my, ahem, ample calves!)
