This week’s outfit was partially inspired by Ma Nouvelle Mode‘s Copy Cat Closet challenge, which for this week was colored tights. I’ve dipped my toe into wearing colored tights before and have several pairs, but I hadn’t had a chance to wear these mustard ones yet. Or this dress. Greyscale stripes + mustard yellow seemed like an easy win, so voila! This dress is surprisingly comfortable, and there’s just enough nip in the air that the tights are welcome. The boots are fabulous (they can be worn cuffed with the herringbone showing, or not), but have a bit higher heel than I wear on an everyday basis. I’m sure if any neighbors were watching my photo shoot they were entertained by my wobbliness (not helped by heels sinking into soft lawn). But being able to walk more gracefully in higher heels is something I’m working on, so eventually the wobbliness will disappear.
In non-wardrobe news, I’m still catching up on things from Thanksgiving vacation. I think I have about 200 unread blog posts in my reader, and quite a number of emails to attend to still. But I’m glad to be home and working on work, blog & shop again. Honestly, too much downtime and I get bored. But it was great to see my mom and extended family. 🙂

I love colored tights! Your mustard ones are so fun! Would be super cute with a purple or cranberry dress!
You know, I just got a plum colored dress from a Black Friday sale and was thinking the same thing! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

Haha, thanks!! 😀
I think I just drooled a little bit over those fabulous boots!
Thanks! Aren’t they great? I love the pattern on the fold-down. 🙂
I just got a pair of mustard tights and was thinking over how to wear them. Love how you styled yours!
Thank you! Have you worn yours yet? How’d you end up styling them?
I NEED colored tights! I just got my first sweater dress, and I have boots… but tights are on my to buy list!!! Love this look on you!
Thanks!! Target and ModCloth and WeLoveColors.com are all great places for colored tights, if you’re still looking for some. 🙂
Super cute outfit!
Thank you! 🙂
Love the way the tights sing out and the dress with stripes (I do love stripes) and the boots with the fold down. Soft grass does make for rather a lack of elegance in the heels department!! Thanks for joining up with Wardrobe Wednesday :o)
Thank you!! I love stripes as well. And yes, there was a definite lack of elegance walking around the backyard! Haha. 🙂
Love the bright tights with striped dress! So cute and fun. 🙂
Adoring those mustard tights and fold down boots – you look great!! xo
Aw, thanks so much! 🙂
LOVE this outfit! The Tiger’s Eye necklace gives the perfect touch of color that brings everything together, as the Brits say…”very smart” outfit! 🙂
Thank you! That necklace is one of my favorites, and I thought it went well with the mustard tights. 🙂
