A small dose of color

On Saturday I went on a cleaning spree in our bedroom, reorganizing things and getting rid of clothes I no longer wear. I arranged my tights in a vintage suitcase so I can see them all at once. I completely forgot about most of them. This winter I've been wearing mostly black and brown tights, so it was nice to rediscover these green tights. I've only worn them one other time (here), because I can only handle colored tights in small doses. I think the pop of green between the skirt and the boots was just right.

Sweater: Target
Skirt: Anthropologie
Jacket: MICHAEL Michael Kors from Nordstrom Rack
Tights: American Apparel
Boots: Urban Outfitters
Necklace: free from my aunt


  1. Fun look - and good for you cleaning out your closet. always such a huge challenge for me.

  2. It's so fun rediscovering clothing you forgot you had. It's funny you bring this up because I was just realizing this morning that I hadn't even really worn any of my colored tights this season--so weird! I always love when you wear this skirt! It is so much fun!

  3. I got some colored tights this winter in bright purple and blue, and I find myself still reaching for my neutral tights--I feel like the colors don't go with my limited selection of skirts very well. Which means I need more skirts, right?

  4. I agree that you've deployed those green tights very well. Bright tights are fun, but they can be hard to style sometimes. At least for me. You look wonderful. And I love the idea of tights in a suitcase; I might have to try that!

  5. Well I too keep wearing the same tights (but they're not neutrals, hehe) 'cause I can't see 'em all in the back of my drawer. Crammed tight full I might add! You have worn your Green tights SO well!!! I clicked back to last time you wore 'em, then followed the link to a Red tights outfit. Each outfit is inspirational! As for this outfit, I love how the tights bring out the little bit of Green in your skirt. Perfect!


  6. Love the skirt and tights. They look great together!

  7. I did some of the same this weekend and found a few items I kind of forgot I had. I think it should be like a mandatory rule that every 6 months we go through our closets to remind ourselves all we already have!

  8. I rediscovered some green tights today and decided to incorporate them into my outfit! :) I love that skirt! I saw it on the Anthropologie website a few months ago and fell in love - I love interior design/furniture design so it really captured my attention.

    I just found you blog - you've got a great sense of personal style!
