Day To Evening With Stripes And Bright Tights



Classic Shirt And Oxblood Tights






I have finally bought myself something oxblood! I am so excited to embrace this season's hottest new color. With my hair, eyes and complexion, I cant usually pull of this rich, dark fall hue, so I was ecstatic to fight tights in this color.  I actually picked up a few pairs in other colors including mustard, charcoal, cobalt, and classic black. Colored tights are a great way to put a twist on an outfit and also help bring some of your summer skirts, shorts, and dresses into the colder months. Because it is not a totally bright color, I felt it was appropriate to also wear these to the office, so I am giving you a day to night look with these stockings as well as a classic blue and white striped button down. I hope you enjoy!

Also, I've been getting a few comments on my hair and makeup. My brother does a you tube vlog (see my post Pink Pants Bro Style to find his link) and he offered to help me make tutorial videos over the holidays. Please let me know if you would like to see my hair curling, ombre dying, everyday makeup, Q&A, or any other videos you may think of, I am very open to suggestions. Once again, thanks so much for following I love and appreciate you all!

XOXO

    1. Thanks so much Sheila. I think it helps to change an outfit slightly to take it from day to night instead of changing outfits completely.
