T IS FOR TEAL

1-28-10 1

Wow!  Three days straight wearing crazy tights!  Tuesday was leopard, Wednesday was maroon and today, I give you teal.  These were a Christmas gift from a co-worker.  I was so happy to get them.  It was the most perfect, inexpensive gift that showed that she knows me and knows what I like and what my style is.  It was even a little bit of an inside joke, since I turned her on to colored tights this winter, which was a big deal for her!  To me, that's the best kind of gift.

Indoor pictures today, kids.  It was C-O-L-D today.  The wind was wicked - and still is.  I think all that mild weather over the last couple of weeks has thinned my blood.

The hair is a big ole' unwashed pile on top of my head.  It was mainly in an attempt to be ready to get out the door before John, so that I could prove to him that I could.  He was on my case for "playing on the computer" after breakfast instead of getting ready, implying that I would be late.  Well ... I showed him!

This shirt gets so little wear for some reason.  I think I just have a hard time styling it or something, but it was the perfect top for this outfit.  I wanted to let the skirt and tights scream speak for themselves, so I kept the rest pretty simple.  I had a wider patent belt on when I left this morning and as I was sitting in the car, it dawned on me that this studded little pretty would have been so much better!  So, when I came home for lunch, I swapped them.  Now, it's perfect!

  4. This is cute Kyla! I also love when your hair is back and you can see your face completely. Don't get me wrong - your bangs are awesome... I just like the change every once in a while. We must have been on the same wave length with the blue hued legs! :)

  20. I had a pair of tights in almost the exact same color that got a big nasty run all the way up them. Now seeing yours I'm reminded of mine and a bit sad. Your outfit is pretty amazing though, and I can almost tell how you altered that skirt to get that shape!
