Green Tights!

Hue tights, Michael Kors jacket, J. Crew tee and wool / cashmere skirt,
Durango motorcycle boots, scarf I found in a pub one night that nobody claimed.

Okay, maybe they're actually teal, but how fun are these?  And they were free. I found them stuck up in a corner of my socks and underwear drawer, completely unworn, still in the wrapper. I think I may have bought them nearly 10 years ago, which is scary actually, that I have managed to not know they were there for that long. That means that I potentially finished graduate school, met a guy, got married, and moved to Scotland with the tights in tow and somehow managed to remain oblivious to their very existence. Huh.

Never mind, I've found them now. I think I probably was just afraid to wear them when I was that wee bit younger,  perhaps afraid that the colour would make my thighs look huge, or that I would just resemble the Green Lantern a bit too much for my liking. But like so many things in life, you get a little older and just don't care any more. I'm quite pleased with these. They make me feel happy, and...well...visible.  So on with the green teal tights, I say.

  1. I have tights in this colour, they are my favourite. I'm loving that action shot of you! Also love that you went home with a scarf no one claimed. Fab! x

  2. Found you through Patti, and LOVE the tights with the Frye boots. What a great look! Isn't it great to get to that point where we just don't care and dress to please ourselves?

  3. What a happy discovery! I love it that your tights took this long life journey with you, humbly waiting for the right moment . . . You look fab; love those boots.

  4. I think they are teal & they look great with your boots.

  5. The tights are adorable...I so agree that as we get a little older, we care less what other people think! I love the fact that you live in Scotland...I've always wanted to go there.
