Bubblegum Legs

Monday, March 08, 2010
For my second pair of tights I received from We Love Colors, I chose the light pink ones. It's funny - the colors they show online are a lot lighter than in person! But I still love 'em. I got quite a few stares today. I don't think Utahns are ready for colored tights yet.

As I mentioned before in my previous post, if you are looking for bright flashy tights, We Love Colors is where it's at. I didn't think I'd like them because they were too bright for me but with my boring wardrobe full of neutrals, it's nice to have some pops of color! Just make sure to get your sizing right - I got a size small but they start riding down after a few hours or so. So I guess if you go to the bathroom a lot you can adjust throughout the day - just sayin'.

  1. I love that outfit - that pop of pink is just girly enough but not too bright, and I love how you toughen things up with the bomber-ish jacket.

    And I so love what you've been doing with your hair lately! Do you curl it or did you get it permed?

  2. Your hair looks amazing here. I wish my hair would do that.
    I really want a pair of those tights.

  3. I love the colored tights with that outfit! And the ones you wore yesterday. I'm seriously considering getting some for myself. This Utahan is certainly ready for more colored tights...

  4. Elaine, you're totally on a color roll! Haha, did you get any compliments? I mean, you're getting tons of compliments here (one from enthusiastic me!), because I personally think colored tights are dashing. :) I think this pink pair brings out the color in the dress nicely.

  23. Oh my, Utahn's aren't ready for a LOT of style things. :) Keep up inspiring anyone who sees you! I really like the pink and may need to get a pair. It appeals to my girl side. My only other slightly bright tights are a burgundy/purple.

    I know what you mean about stares...on Sunday, someone actually looked straight at me and said, "interesting" (in a snarky way) as I walked past. I don't think Nashville if ready for personal styles outside of the norm either! haha! :)
