so fashion forward...

I can't stop noticing all the fun, colored tights I keep seeing all over Instagram(here) and on blogs (here), 
and I absolutely love this trend. 
It's such a fun way to brighten any outfit. And perfect for Fall.

Although I'll never claim to be fashion forward or super stylish I actually jumped on the colored tights bandwagon at least two years ago. I'm so trendy, haha!
I had bought a cute black dress for Christmas and searched everywhere for a pair of ochre yellow tights. They had to be ochre yellow. But, of course, I couldn't find the right color anywhere. 
Finally, a few days before Christmas I found them. 
They were the only ones left, the sales person told me that they stopped selling the color because no one was buying them, and even though they were a bit over budget I knew they needed to come home with me. 
Ironically, a few months later the color was everywhere. 
I forgot about the tights after wearing them to the Christmas party and rediscovered them just a few days ago. It was day of great joy.

I decided to pair them with this sweater dress I've had for years(and also haven't worn for at least two years), and what do you know: they're a match made in heaven! 
And my new favorite scarf matches perfectly. 
(the scarf is the nicest one I've ever had and it matches with almost everything)

Oh, the mirror is so gross, sorry! Micha loves giving himself kisses...

scarf: H&M // dress: H&M (old) // tights: some Italian brand? // boots: thrift // cropped jacket: H&M (old)



I love finding 'new' on trend outfits in my closet!

What are your thoughts on the colored tights trend?

Love, Maria

  1. Love the outfit. The scarf is really cute! I also like the dirty mirror-- if Micha is anything like my kids, the minute I clean it, they are back to messing it up.

    1. ahhhh and the mirror, love it! we have the some things all over here on glass table, mirror, balcony window, and I gave up, because few hours after cleaning it looks the same allover again, so I just clean it onece a week and I kind of started to embrace it ( it looks like it is, bubbly toddler in da haus:)
