Dress? Vintage c/o White Elephant Tights? ? (similar here)  Jacket? Costa Blanca (similar real and faux 
Purse? Vintage, Modify Your Closet (some similar purses on Etsy here and here... so pretty!)
Beanie? Roots (in red or stripedBoots? Aldo

I made a big deal about it; the fact that I am wearing coloured tights. I think this has only happened twice (here and here) before on the blog. The wearing coloured tights part, not the making a big to-do about nothing part... That part I have on lock down.
But after all the fuss I made, the tights don't even look so bold in these pictures at all.
That's probably because my camera is a jerk on cloudy days. Or because I am overly dramatic about wearing a relatively tame pair of wine coloured tights.

I've had this blog for almost for 4 years now. Many things have changed but me whining about my fear of coloured tights has stayed consistent. I ended up scrolling through my older archives to find more evidence of tights whining but instead I got distracted by how adorable Matt is in this wooly sweater I thrifted him, how much I randomly love this outfit and how I pretended to do a giveaway once with one of my cats as the prize.

Oh embarrassing archives... I forgot how entertaining you could be.

I love the mix of leather, knits, and lace here! I'd totally try to steal your purse if I ever saw you, which probably wouldn't work because I imagine if you swung it around it could also turn into quite an effective weapon!

Ive only done black, dark blue and brown tights till date.. The wine color looks so good on you.

Dude, I wear black and brown tights on the regular. I practically declared a federal holiday when I wore some burgundy tights (similar to yours, a little more red). I don't have the style guts to go much crazier beyond that.

The archives can treat you so well, and then sometimes they just remind of you bad fashion moments. I'm speaking from personal experience, of course, because you don't have bad fashion moments! You always look fab.

I think you can pull off the colored tights pretty well, especially this gorgeous wine color. Also, that purse again? So swooning!

It makes me laugh that the same girl who wears "casual sequins" feels that colored tights are weird. :o) So glad you ventured out in them though, it is a great outfit!

Congrats on four years, Jen! I think I've been reading you nearly from the beginning (I'm coming up on 5 years, yikes!).

I love coloured tights - I have about 20 different shades.

I love this outfit - especially the colored tights. The pop of color really pulls everything together.

Let me begin with saying that you look gorgeous and that the photography is beautiful. Love the burgundy branches in the background.

Now. I want to thank you for expressing your uncertainty about wearing coloured tights. Had you not, I would have immediately run out and bought burgundy tights. You have that effect on me. I currently have a darling pair of pale, pale turquoise tights in my sock drawer that have never been worn outside of the bedroom...and no, I don't mean That! I just can't quite bring myself to wear coloured tights. You look so good, I really should try.

Love this! I've worn navy tights, and I think I would do burgundy, but I think that's as adventurous as I could get. You look fantastic!
