Hey all and happy Friday! For some reason, this has felt like the longest week ever… it felt like it just would not end. I needed a week to myself, so I stayed home from most events and tried to actually work from home, instead of going a million places a day like I always do. I ran some errands and got a LOT done. I did laundry, cooked 2-3 meals a day, got my nails done… and wow it felt so good!
I always love a little color, but as it gets colder, I can find it a bit tougher to add color to my looks and to keep things as colorful. I have started to keep up with color as the temps drop by adding a pop of color in my tights. Obviously, these looks are a bit bright as well, but I felt like adding a colorful tight gave them a bit more of a pop. I bought a ton of colorful and printed tights for the colder months, so stay tuned… Chicago will be cold for a little while.
Besides adding a pop of color with tights, there are other subtle ways to add color (or in this case, red) to your wardrobe. In both looks, I added a red bag, to offset parts of the look as well. The sweater dress had pops of red in it and since I bought red tights, I wanted to make sure I got multiple uses out of them. To elongate myself and continue the line of my legs, I added the red booties. Red booties are another awesome way to add a pop of red, and it goes with so many more colors than you think it would.
I wore this look to an event a few weeks ago, but at the time did not have the belt (it was not available yet). I wanted to wear these shoes with it, since they had a pop of red in them. I went back and forth with not wearing tights, but my legs are soooo pale, so I have been opting for them. I wanted to take the look to the next level, so I added the tights. I felt like the tights just took the look up a notch.
