my outfit: high heels and tights!

I am never one to be left out (probably why I started a blog in the first place!?!?).... and while so many other bloggers out there are having a blast with fun colored tights this season I was feeling a little left out. Especially since my Target has bins of every colored tights you can imagine all for $5 each. How can you say no? {excuse the poor picture quality, I had to take them after dark, that is 5pm these days}.

So of course if you know me, and I think you do, you know I love jeans. So I just wore tights under my jeans and had them peak out at the bottom with these adorable heels (my "Vegas" heels as I like to call them).

Let's talk about the many pros of wearing tights with jeans:
a) you instantly feel skinnier - jeans out of the dryer have FINALLY met their match.
b) you instantly feel warmer - I am always cold this time of year.
c) your heels will not give you blisters because your tights protect your feet.
d) you are instantly more popular (well not really, but some people at the party you are at will definitely notice your pink tights with jeans).
e) jeans + tights + heels could also work as jeans + tights + flats.
f) I am definitely on to something.
g) this means you can buy more tights and shoes. {and isn't that the whole purpose to life? more shoes?}

I had a baby shower to go to so I got gussied up a bit. I even walked over about a block of snow and ice in these heels and lived to tell the story. {I had to park kind of far away}

I will be trying this look for sure! And I couldn't agree more about getting to buy more shoes and tights. ;-)

CUTE!!!!! I am 8 months pregnant but totally stealing this outfit for a Christams party next week! I was stressing about what to wear and I love the classic black turtleneck/jeans/red lips combo! Althouh I haven't seen colored maternity tights...but I could do colored knee-highs, no? Thanks for the inspiration!

I love your unexpected pop of pink! Colored tights are a fun way to add a little "drama" to an outfit. I've got to get a few more pair. I seem to live in black tights. You look beautiful as always!

Love the pop of purple in your socks. The pearls over black top is genius.
