Colored Tights

Colored Tights

Now that we are starting to get the occasional cool (but not cold) weather day here in Houston (think 60s), I am starting to think about tights.  I have worn tights in neutral colors in past seasons, but I have never really ventured into the bright colored opaque and patterned tights.  Here are some of the looks in colored and patterned tights that I came across for inspiration...

Are you a fan of this trend?  How do you wear it?

So, my next post will be post #100!  I am excited about that, and the fact that my blog will be "1" in January :)  I haven't picked the subject of my 100th post, but it will most likely be the always popular "Weekly Style Inspiration" of fashion bloggers.  Until then, stay stylish!

Burgundy and Pink...

Burgundy and Pink...

I am always looking for new colors to pair with the "it" color of burgundy.  My latest fascination is with the combination of burgundy and pink.  Whether it be pale pink or a medium pink (let's save hot pink for spring), this two-tone combination in the same color family is a winner!
