Bright Tights, Bigger City

Works Cited--Outfit 19
skirt: thrifted, vintage
gray dolman top, pumps: urban outfitters
tights: we love colors
necklace: macy's

It started snowing this morning, and it was snowing when I took these photos. Snowing right all over my dreams about an early spring, bare legs, open-toed shoes, and hatless nights. I feel positively murderous toward those sinister clouds up there! But I did my best to feel springy despite the freeze with the brightest tights in my arsenal and a ridiculously pink, ridiculously big necklace. And on another note, gray is my favorite color. It goes with and complements everything. Except when it comes in the shape of big, wet, snowy clouds. Then gray should just go right back where it came from.

Love the outfit! The Necklace ties it all together! What shade of tights from we love colors are those?

they are rubine, i think. they look more like purple online but in real life they are fuchsia!

Sandy a la Mode said...

MONKEYFACE said...

Well ambiguously purplish pinkyness is my favorite color so I am loving how the grey sets off those tights! You look SMASHING.

You look amazing, and I love the McInerney reference!

yeah... cruel to get our hopes up about the early spring! It was beautiful out today but I still froze off my bits (ear bits nothing else:)).
I like the casual top and the big, fun necklace against it!

kelsey said...

Isn't it funny how we're so excited about snow, and then we hate it? I am also ready for spring.

This outfit is delicious, lady!

I have a pair of Betsey Johnson tights the SAME color! However, unlike you, I had no clue as to what I should wear them with! Lovely outfit! The colors are just right...and I couldn't agree more. Why is it cold and snowy again? Depresses my soul.

kileen said...

I agree 100% on the gray, it's such a chic and low maintenance color! And I'm loving those tights!

Erica said...

Ugh, the same thing happened here in NYC. It was warm and sunny and then BAM! snow!

Oddly enough, I have similar purple tights and wore them with a grey dress just last week. If I that means I'm starting to dress like you, that would be amazing.

We got about 2 inches in PA. If I could put a hit out on the season winter, I definitely would! On a positive note, I love this business casual look. The tights and necklace give it a great pop of color!

Patricia said...

Oh, I LOVE this outfit. I might have to try something similar... my fall-back winter wardrobe tends to be full of blacks and greys. Some bright tights might be just the answer to spice things up.

Nicole Runde said...

dotty said...

Super Cute!!!

Erin Girard said...

I can't decide if big top buns make me feel like a crazy cat lady or a sorority girl, but I've been doing the same thing and love yours too!!

Elizabeth said...

This is a gorgeous look for you! Love the details — tights, necklace, belt all bring the look together beautifully!

i wander, i wonder

eitchy said...

Same with the snow here :(. I really like that colour on tights, and they go well with the rest of the outfit. Grey is nice (on clothes, not clouds)

Lara said...

That skirt always looks really chic and elegant on you, and I love it paired with bright tights.

Larysse Tavares said...

SO pretty, Tania!

Anja said...

academichic said...

Oh, I absolutely adore this color combo - grey and fuschia! Beautiful! And I want that necklace! S.

I can completely relate. SO sick of snow. And cold. And winter.

Your necklace is divine, though, and so amazing paired with the magenta tights.

Rose-Anne said...

I love those crazy tights! They look terrific with your grey pumps.

Pineapple said...

You look positively fantastic today. And I totally understand. I think we've all begun to dress as if that warm front was the real deal . . . dang return to winter. Bah! And now back to our regularly scheduled layering and shivering and covered legs.
This outfit belongs in my inspiration folder.

Liz said...

You look amazing! I love it!
