Ensemble du Jour

The Outfit
Sometimes I get asked if I pre-plan what I'm wearing each day. Most of the time, I don't. Usually there is a single item that I want to wear and that determines what I pick to work around it. Usually that's a new pair of shoes or a pair I haven't worn lately and I'm excited to wear them. But just as often a whole bunch of different variables go into what I pick. Am I tired, have I work too much black this week, is it raining, do I not want to go bare-legged, etc., etc.

Today it was that I didn't want to wear black again. I just needed some color! I pulled out a pair of hot pink tights and my white crewneck shirt from Ann Taylor. Because I wanted to be casual, I paired this with my Old Navy corduroy skirt. The boots are my Sam Edelman boots that were on Gossip Girl.

To tie the color in the tights back, I used my hot pink star pin (bought at the airport!) as a pendant on a silver chain. By the way, this shirt from Ann Taylor is so soft. It is somthing like 75% silk but the rest is nylon, I think, so its soft but flexible. And there is a row of buttons down the shoulder, which is why I bought it.

Don't these have a modern Mary Poppins-ish feel to them. I don't normally like mid-calf boots and would only wear them under pants but these have to be worn with a skirt so you can see how adorable they are.

The Focal Point
The color! I did like the outfit overall too, though. It was comfortable but a little quirky.

I'm so glad tights will be sticking around for a while. Now I just need to find a way to organize them all. It's getting a little out of hand in the armoir.
