This one is for Adrianne :) You are going to look hot tomorrow in your floral tights!!!
I am obsessed right now with colored tights! I love how this Kate Spade model wore a big polka dot blouse with yellow tights. LOVE it!!! (the next 4 images VIA mattersofstyleblog.com)Here she is with such a cute mini polka dot dress with green tights. LOVE it!!! I have been on the hunt for some mustard colored tights like these but have yet to find a cheap pair :( But dont worry it will happen and I will keep you posted!And this outfit just makes me happy. I love that she is mixing black and white fabrics then throws in a red belt and red stillettos to add some color! LOVE THIS!!!!Now its my turn :) Im going to break it down for you on how cheap these outfits are by using what you have in your closet and just buying little accessories to make your outfit look more fashion forward when styled right.
The dress I bought at Target for $6 bucks on clearance. It was an XL and I took in the sides. No I am not a seamstress....I just did a straight stitch up both sides. Super easy! The cardigan is an old one from Old Navy, the belt is from Forever 21 $5, plum tights are from Payless $5, and the shoes are old cheapies from Forever Young Shoe Store.This blouse was $3 at a neighborhood garage sale, same belt and cardigan as shown above, the skirt is more pricey its from Banana but a good skirt is a staple. It will always be in style and I dont mind going big on a purchase when it is something that will last forever. The gray floral tights $5 from Target and again same shoes as shown above.The models at the beginning of my post inspired me to mix yellow and green so I had to try it. I LOVE this new cardigan. I got it from Target $18, same ruffle blouse from garage sale, tweed skirt from Forever Young $20, and green tights from Target $5. Ok now that I see it on honestly the green is a little much...according to my husband I looked like the midgets on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. He HATED it! LOL :)So instead I toned it down with my boots and FELL in LOVE again with my original idea! Love it!!!Dont be afraid to try out some funky tights. If its your first time wearing them go simple with your outfit (solid colors and patterns) and then as you get more comfortable with mixing colors and patterns "Mondo Style" play around with it and just have fun!
