Maroon is the new black...

I've been wanting to change things up on the tights front for a while, since black is getting beyond boring. And even though spring is in the air, Atlanta still has one or two 50-60 degree days up her sleeve, so leg covering is a must.

And I don't really do dress pants. So tights it is!

Unfortunately, I'm not really sure how to pull off brightly colored tights. I mean, what is appropriate for an office environment? And what is appropriate for a 31 year-old mother?

After much debate, I ended up with maroon, olive green, and rust colored tights. I'm still on the fence about whether I can pull of the rust and green tights, because they might be a little bright for me, but the maroon ones? A little bit of color, but understated enough to still be office appropriate. They were perfect.

I. Am. In. Love!!

  1. The maroon tights look great!! That's funny, my first pair of colored tights were maroon too. It's a nice way to ease into it. I think you could totally do green and rust!

    I'm ready to go straight spring too. I'm done with tights, boots, and sweaters!

  2. great tights. really love the skirt!!!
