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:

GREEN
 Great with other jewel colours

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

YELLOW
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!!

    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

    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 πŸ™‚

    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!

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

    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!
