Whatcha Wearing?
Vintage dress/jumper available here in my Etsy shop
Tights from We Love Colors / Soda boots from Shoe Carnival
Banana Republic blouse from Salvation Army

I'll call this look preppy punk. Preppy for the houndstooth and button down blouse, punk for the pink tights, combat boots, and suspender clips on the jumper. I'm not really sure why I felt the need to explain that. It's actually pretty obvious!

Anyway, I don't think I've worn my pink tights at all yet this fall. What a shame! More so than even the mustard tights, these elicit extreme reactions in people. The most common is "Well, you're not going to be hit by a bus wearing those", or something similar. Yes, they're bright. That's why I like them. They're especially effective when paired with simple black and white and allowed to shine!

I'm linking up with Real Girl Glam and The Pleated Poppy.

  3. I always get a lot of comments when I wear my pink tights too. Like "Those are pink" or "those are bright." I always want to respond sarcastically, but I just smile and say thanks. I had no idea pink tights would elicit so many comments.
