Ensemble message: Guys, I'll be honest here... Tuesday I probably would not have picked this outfit to wear if I didn't have some We Love Colors tights to style up!  It was cold and snowy (story of the northeast this week), and really dressy for sitting in front of my computer all day.  But you know what?  I LOVE this outfit!!  I am so psyched to show you that funky tights can be worn in the office!  The key here is to mute everything else... similar color palette, simple accessories, and voila!  I got compliments all day... at least when I took a breather from the computer screen ;)

I think I really like this outfit because you can wear it to a number of events... big presentation day, a date or night out, or even a job interview if you're in a creative industry.  And it can carry you from day to night as well!  I quickly want to point out for those of you who are now inspired to purchase a pair... these are 100% nylon vs. 90% nylon/10% lycra, like my navy and rust pairs.  So, they are a little thinner and don't "snap" back into place like the others do.  Just a heads up!  They are still worth it because they are so gosh darn fun! :)

Last reminder!!  Tomorrow at noon EST is the deadline to enter the We Love Colors giveaway!!!
