May 18, 2011: Khaki, Blue, Creme

Trench: Forever21 ($19)
Dress: American Apparel (old)
Belt: J.Crew Sale
Tights c/o ModCloth
Necklace: Madewell ($7)
Bag: Vintage from Brimfield ($30)
vintage shoes c/o Haberdash Vintage
Yep, those are tights. Tights in May. Seriously? I had to turn the heat on monday morning, and again when I came home at night. Say it with me: WTF? I was really looking forward to putting the tights away, but really wanted to wear a dress to work. Oh well, it gave me a chance to break in my new shoes from Punky which I'm totally in love with. See the crepe sole? I'm dying. Despite having to wear tights, I love this outfit. Along with my new shoes, this vintage purse is one of my new favorite things. One of my Brimfield finds, it was a little pricy, but worth it in my opinion.

The weather has been cold all week! Chris and I are up in Portland today celebrating our anniversary a month late by seeing Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, having dinner, and staying at an inn. Have a great Wednesday!

I love this entire outfit, but I'm have to say what I'm most envious of is that you are seeing Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers. So awesome! Have a blast!

Hey OG, have you thought instead of tights you could wear leggings that stop just at the bottom of the ankle? They are great on chilly spring or summer days and you don't feel like a throwback to winter : ) Plus which. They make them in some great summery colours also!!

Lady Moriarty said...

I want your shoes like really !!!! Ok what's your price ? ^^

See U !

I love this bag so much & your dress & shoes are great too! i think the white shoes are perfect for wearing black tights but still making a springy look.

Lindsay said...

You look darling, despite the tights. I know what you mean, though. It's been nice, then rainy then nice then rainy and I can't keep up. Wishing it would stay nice already. Love the look and the new shoes :)
