    Agreed! Lovely skirt (well, I see dress). I definitely would not be brave enough to rock those blue tights. Wearing purple ones today (with a floral dress, ha ha!) and feel a bit “out there”, not that any of my (all male) collagues would even bat an eyelid 🙂

      January 28, 2013

      Ha ha ha, thanks Louise! This is definitely as bright as I will go with tights. I don’t have the courage to wear brighter colours, like orange or yellow, but I really do love the look of them.

      Ha ha ha ha, you are so right. . . it’s another Smurf day! 🙂 But for some reason, I didn’t feel “Smurfy” in this outfit. 🙂

    I love this look Jenny. I am still not brave enough to use colored tights with heels yet.

    I thought it was a great interview. Learned about new sites like Chictopia & Chicsimo. I have joined both site to browse for now. I am not sure my outfits are cool enough for these sites.

      Aww, Alice you are definitely “cool” enough! 🙂 But I know what you mean because I don’t feel cool enough for it either. I think you might like The Purse Forum though. There are woman with all different styles posting there, and that is definitely wear I feel most comfortable.

    Love the entire outfit, you always dress so nice. I like the mint and cobalt colors combined.

    January 28, 2013

    Great mix of the bold with the pastel to make it more cool weather appropriate!

    I just got a Coach penny too and adore it! However, do you have trouble keeping the double strap on your shoulders? Any ideas to prevent it?

    • Jenny
      January 28, 2013

      Thanks so much! Hmm, I haven’t really had the problem yet. I noticed it a bit, but it wasn’t enough to bother me. What if you put a small piece of double stick tape in between the two straps at the top near your shoulder? I used double stick tape for EVERYTHING! You might only last a few wears, but it’s worth a try. Next time I wear it, I’ll try it out and let you know if I can come up with anything else.

    At first glance, I swear I thought the shoes/tights were some sort of new boot! I couldn’t tell the difference! (Then I sipped some more coffee and paid closer attention!) Wow! Way to go on finding the perfect color tights for those shoes. You look fantastic!

    Happy Monday!

    Yet another refreshing Spring outfit! You’re keeping the hope alive as we go through this dreary Winter! Btw, kudos to you for braving the cold sans tights in one of my previous comments. I’m a wuss! 😉

      Ha ha ha, thanks so much! I get so sick of wearing tights so on the slightly warmer days, I definitely suffer for fashion! 🙂 Well, sort of. . .I park in the building garage at my condo and I park literally 20 steps from the door to my work, so I’m really only outside for about 30 seconds on most days. 🙂
