Remix: Round Four

This is not quite a full remix, more a tribute to the power of accessories.
This is one of my favorite outfits.  I'm obsessed with horizontal stripes lately, and I think this is a lovely, classic, slightly Parisian look that I am in very real danger of overdoing.  Usually, I pair this emsemble with a red cardigan and call it good, this time I decided to work in an accessory that I've had for a while but haven't worn yet.

Fabulous blue tights!
Every damn morning I go for a run and I see Brown University and RISD students walking around in kick-ass bright tights.  I've had these blue tights for a while, but could just not figure out how to make them work.  I'd try them on with various outfits, but it always ended up looking silly.  Then I worried that I'm too old for bright tights and that this trend has passed me by!  Then I calm down, and try to figure something else out (it's a process)  I'm pretty pleased with the way this turned out, I have to say.

Once I get to work, I'll need to cover up since it's always cold there, so I jettisoned my bright red cardigan for a more subdued gunmetal and added a kicky scarf:

What do you think?  Also, anyone have any other ideas for the bright blue tights, or am I just completely overthinking things?


  1. Never too old to live life out loud!!!!

    Cute outfit.

  2. Bright tights go with everything. Seriously. As long as your outfit is pretty basic (i.e. no other brights to compete) I really like the look of black and white and a bright colour. Bright tights are my FAVOURITE! And also I covet your skirt. Cute nautical-type buttons up front.

  3. Looks great! Love the scarf...I think I said this in a different comment, but I am obsessed with scarves right now.
