Open-toe shoes mean spring is around the corner - hallelujah!!! Maybe one day I'll be able to wear these wedges again sans tights.

Wearing thrifted AE denim jacket ($5), Shade Clothing graphic t-shirt (free with gift card), thrifted belt ($1), DIY skirt ($3), F21 tights ($8), and secondhand wedges ($7).

I swear I'm not purposely pulling my skirt up to show off my hot legs - skirts and tights don't seem to work well together while you're walking....or posing, in this case.

  2. I really love the colours except for the blue. I would probably wear some sort of brown cotton piece over that instead.

    Looks great though.

  22. Hi there, green skirt! And what a lovely pair of tights you´re wearing. Although i do like the jeans jacket: did you think about wearing a cardy instead?

  23. I love this mix of colors. Red and green! I haven´t thought of that except for Christmas. I like your wedges with tights.

  30. I adore those tights and they look amazing with the skirt and wedges! Not so keen on the denim jacket with the rest of it but that's just my personal opinion and I don't really like them anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great outfit. I really like the denim jacket with this outfit. I would have hesitated to wear the green and red together, but it works really well.

    ReplyDelete

  61. Love this outfit. Way to use bold red. I need a pair of brilliantly colored tights to punch up my neutral outfits.
    Also, I know that you dress modestly, but I have to agree with you. You've got some hot legs!

  70. i love how you paired that skirt with those tights. adorable. :D

    ReplyDelete
  71. the color of the skirt is so awesome love it. and i never would've thought to wear the jean jacket - i am a brown/black/navy neutral kinda girl so i would've immediately played it safe. i like the way it kinda 'pops' off of the skirt and the tights so to speak. adds a lot of texture! :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love your pics because I really miss the SLC downtown. Plus you look great!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I absolutely adore your hair that way. It suits you well.
