Rainbow Legs

Hi Guys
Sorry about the absence over here lately, i feel like i'm stretched sooooo thin lately that i am sure to snap soon! But we're all the same aren't we. So much to do so little time! So i thought i'd share with you this post i did for Kym recently and totally forgot to tell you about.. Its a great mix of some of my favourite outfits over the last few months.
I'll be back as soon as this torrential rain stops and i can find a spare 5 minutes to strike a pose,heehee!

So, Winter! The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of autumn and winter is tights. That may seem a little weird, most people probably think of cosy knits and scarves and coats but for me, it's tights.
I mean I really love tights! I feel naked without them, and as much as I like warmer bare naked legged summers, I have to admit I am more in love with dressing for winter! I know some would call that CRAAZZYY! But i just love the layers and cuddliness (just making up words right there!)
Tights for me are so practical, they make remixing my rather large collection of dresses so fun!
Here's a peek in to some I've been wearing of late:

 Great with other jewel colours

Fairly normal, run of the mill, basic but very handy

Some may say tan overload i say, orange you glad you've seen these tights (hardy haha)

i have many a plan for purple tights, they go so well with many a colour

black can be another normal easy peasy colour, but i like to jazz it up a bit with these  bad boys!

or as my family call it Smurf. This day i was known as Smurf legs

This rust shade is soo re-mixable, its the kind of colour that goes with blacks, browns and navys!

My favourite, although i like to call it WINE, sounds classier right?!

Last but by no means least, another current favourite, that jaundice look is so in right now....i joke!

So are you a coloured tights fan? I am looking to add some pinks and reds to my collection and then i think my rainbow is complete. I know some people are wary of trying colours on their legs, but i say go for it! A great way to ease yourself in to colour is to try a pair with knee high boots, add a knee length skirt/dress and that way you will just get a glimpse of great colour when you move. I would love to see your coloured tights, if you have blogs with them, leave a link below and i'd love to check them out!!



  1. I'm always a bit nervous with coloured tights, I can manage subtle colours but I bought a pair of mustard ones and every time I put them on I end up changing. I just feel to much like a character in the Simpsons. Love your collection, and I love seeing all your outfits together. Loads of outfit inspiration all in one post. Hope the rain stops soon xo

  2. Ugh! Love your tights! You have such lovely color tights and pair them so perfectly with just the perfect other colors!

  3. I love coloured tights too! Where do you buy them from? I tend to go to Primark because of price and the quality is generally ok, although I had to size up for cable knit tights. If I could afford to always go to Marks or Sock Shop I would! I have a pair I bought at Sock Shop when I was in the 6th form and they are still great looking (now age 31). Actually, with that many years wear I think the price is worth it..

    Purple are my faves. Your green ones looks great :)

  4. I used to hate tights as a teen because of my long-legs which simply weren't catered for in tight-lengths! However, nowadays, I adore them and have a LARGE collection! Yours are beauties!

  5. You wear some good tights! Love all of these outfits!

  6. Tights are one of my favourite accessory too. Quite often I base my outfit around my tights xxx

  7. I can see your love for animals in print all over your outfits, ahhhhhhhhhhhh I adore them too sooooooooooo much.
    I wont be wearing tigts well into december. Today was very sunny and over 20ºc, like a really good English summer.

  8. Winter is my favorite season to dress for too, & I love love love tights! All the colors, patterns, everything. They totally change up an outfit.


  9. i love thights too. and that's a pretty dresses :)

    I like the way you combine your colors, very inspiring!

  11. I love coloured/patterned tights too.
    I'm addicted to Primark tights- especially the ones with a fleecy lining- snuggly warm for playground duty at work!

  12. I would wear every single one of these outfits. You are amazing!


I love to hear your thoughts! Thank you for commenting :)
