I've been wanting to wear these bright blue tights for a very long time now and, of course, I thought it would look very appropriate paired with more blues. Before I started blogging, I would have worn all black with these bold tights, but now I'm a little bit more adventurous. Plus, blue matches with other kinds of blue, right? 

What do you think about wearing different shades of one color all together?

Thank you for all your recommendations on selling online through etsy or other places! I am currently weighing my options and figuring out pros and cons to each... BUT you bet you'll be the first one to know about my decision! and hopefully soooooon! 

Have a happy weekend!

  2. Love these blue tights. All the combinations and shades of blue mesh so well together. I love how the dress is fun and playful on its own and then with the addition of the blazer it makes it chic and professionl. Love how one item can change a whole outfit.

  3. I LOVE this outfit, like totally love. One of my favorites ever! So I guess that means I am obviously ok with mixing, lol. I have on medium grey boots and light grey/off-white tights, so I'm kinda doing it myself today!

  4. i need more adventurous tights. i'm black, white or grey or blah. but then again, i'm in the 30s, so i guess i'm too old for funky tights?

  17. the blue tights are stunning, I like how you take the shades of blue from your floral dress and make it an accent color, great idea.

  22. You look fabulous, Laura! :) I love the title of your post. I used to know a store called Shades of Blue growing up and I always loved that store. It had lots of random items and the store always smelled so nice :)

  23. I love your tights and your shoes are so cute! Monochromatic dressing always makes me feel so chic. I always feel very pulled together when I do it.

  24. JUST this morning, no joke, I was planning an outfit for my evening out and wishing I had tights exactly THIS shade of blue! So jealous, they look absolutely darling on you.

  26. I love all the blues together! I like the idea of wearing multiple shades of the same color together, but for some reason just haven't done it all that much.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The blues and browns of the dress go brilliantly with the tights, I have to say I would have gone all black too with coloured tights, so well done for fashion braveness, it payed off!

  41. Hi Laura!!! Thanks so much for commenting on my posts! I just caught up with all your posts now! You looked adorable as Pikachu!!! I also love your outfits with the pink scarf and the red and white stripped cardigan! Adorable! Oh and I think you're rocking the blue in this outfit!

    I know what you mean about manga and anime! It is ridiculous hahaha but I still love them anyways and my sister is a huge fan of Kitchen Princess! She collects the manga right now =P Oh and as for chobits, I prefer the manga more than the anime, I usually like manga more just because it's more face pasted and not full of fillers lol

    Hope you're having a great day!!!

  42. LOVE those tights! Sooo cute. Bold tights are my fav. This outfit is adorable!

  43. I love the sleeves on this dress so much and the print is unexpected and different from a lot of stuff i've been seeing lately. The blue is a cute touch!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think that's a fabulous way to wear your blue tights! I've been way too cautious with my electric magenta ones. (Yes, hot pink but electric magenta is just SO much more fun to say.) I'm going to have to try this with mine. If I find something good, I'll have to show the results and let everyone know it was you who inspired me! Don't worry, if it's not good - I'll hide the evidence in shame so it doesn't reflect badly on either of us.

  45. I am very conservative with my clothes. The other day, I was wearing all grey with patterned tights and I felt... kind of strange about my grey patterned tights. I do like the look on you. I think it's as long as you have the confidence to wear it.

  68. LOVE the dress and tights together.

    I'm not opposed to wearing different shades of one color together. I do it often with browns and greens.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love this look, the browns and blues play so well together, and yes I am a fan of monochrome looks!

  70. gorgeous outfit! I love the pattern and the blue hues.. I honestly don;t wear much blues, except navy. You pull off any colours really well!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Ooohh!! I can't believe I just saw this! So, I had my fiance buy me some purple tights, and you know guys and color don't mix well. I realized last week that they were more on the Barney shade than I would have wanted them to be. Tell me Laura...should I wear them still? Cause I'm seriously considering keeping them in my drawer forever. They're my pair of bold tights but I'm starting to think they might be too purple for my liking :D The ones you have are just gorgeous, and YES that all blues go with blues! It's fun to play with the same shade of color and then throw in some small accent pieces :D

    You look fab!!! :D (like that's ever changed :P)
