Another late night for me, but at least I was bright!
- Cardigan - Jacob, thrifted; last seen here in October 2015 for the debut of the disco pants
- Sweater - Lacoste, thrifted; first worn here in December 2015 with brocade and gold
- Skirt - Mario Serrani, thrifted; purchased here on the weekend for $6.00
- Shoes - Queen Transcendent Escarpin, Fluevog; last worn here with shades of wine and plum back in November 2015
The first wearing of this really cool skirt - I loved it and it got lots of compliments. I think it will work better in my spring/summer wardrobe, as I have many more citrusy brights in it. I had a hard time finding something in my fall/winter wardrobe that wasn't black! Hence, the pink tights.
here they are) - and I tend to wear the same ones over and over. So, using a similar trick to what I've been doing in my closet each season*, after I washed a bunch of my tights the other night, I pulled all the non-worn tights from the drawer I store them in and put them in a big grocery bag. My goal is to make it to the bottom of the bag, and hopefully weed a few pairs out in the process. Not these, though. I love me some pink tights.
*I put my hangers in backwards, then as I wear clothes, I turn the hangers around.
I bookended my outfit - top and bottom - with burgundy, which pulled out the warm pinky tones in the skirt and helped make the tights a little less loud.
Speaking of bookending, I'm linking up to Gracey's "Literary Stylings" over at Fashion for Giants! My outfit is not really inspired by anything I've read lately, although I'm going to say it's from our most recent Book Club book (which I ready over Christmas) was "A Man Called Ove" (link 'cause I love) by Fredrik Backman. Ove is a cantankerous old coot, and he would thoroughly disapprove of my outfit, my purple hair, and me. However, I'm likable and I'd win him over.
And yeah, the shoes are sweet!

And finally...a Happy Birthday to my dear brother Dave, who turned 46 today. Ha! You're old, little brother. Go here for an amusing journey in my history with my little bro.
Happy birthday to your brother! :)ReplyDelete
I love the hot pink tights with the print of your skirt :) Smart idea to try make sure you wear all your tights too! I think I need to try something like your hanger method soon to help me whittle down my wardrobe more, as I don't make much progress with it!
I love the tights - and the bag method to make sure you wear the ones you like. I have tried the backwards hanger thing but I always cheat! A character flaw. Fabulous shoes! xoxReplyDelete
I. Love. These. Tights. I'd marry them if my state allowed it.ReplyDelete
Also loves me some funky coloured tights. So many bloggers have abandoned colour and have become #basically #boring. Thank you for bringing colour to the world!ReplyDelete
I knew that skirt would look fab - it reminds me of a print from an H&M dress you thrifted ( i have the same print on a top).ReplyDelete
Of course the tights are fab - i also own a similar pair !
Hooray for hot pink tights!!! Those are amazing. And you look fabulous. Thank you so much for linking up!ReplyDelete
I have a pair of bright pink tights that are a bit lighter shade than yours - I always feel like I could glow in the dark when I wear them. I've been slacking on the colour lately and only doing black and grey, which seems to match the weather we've been having.ReplyDelete
Very sweet skirt and how beautifully the pink tights work with that. I've got bright pink tights but can't seem to find the right get up yet. That necklace is a winner xReplyDelete

I agree with all the compliment givers: this is an extremely nice skirt. Are these the shoes you bought when I was with you?ReplyDelete
Nice necklace too.
Greetje, yes, these are the ones I bought with you!ReplyDelete
Ooohh, don't you just adore it when tights are able to hold up for several years (or more). I too tend to really gravitate towards the same handful of pairs, many of which I've had for between five and seven years now (possibly even longer in a couple of cases), too.ReplyDelete
Very fun outfit! Your pink gams just the burst of wardrobe cheerfulness one needs during this chilly, slate sky filled month.
