Barney Has Got Nothing On Me!

Hey Everybody, Everwear....it's colored tights time.






Dress-Martin & Osa/Boots-Kennth Cole/Tights-Gap/Belt-UO

Every time I look down at my legs all I can think of is Barney.  For those of you without kids, he is a large purple dinosaur with way too many under aged friends who like to sing about loving and hugging you... I guess I just find him creepy.  Thank god my kids weren't into him for very long...I could barely keep a straight face when he started singing!

So, in preparation for this Everybody, Everywhere, I dug through my enormous mound of tights in my closet and only could find black, multiple shades of brown and gray...not very colorful.  So, I popped into the Gap on my way last night and picked up these purple ones.  With my $10 rewards, they were only $2... I put an outfit together around them together last night but, it looks nothing like the outfit I currently have on.  I tried them with a patterned skirt and blazer, but I felt the loud color was too much with the pattern.  So, I opted to go with this neutral denim shirt dress I found in the back of my closet.  I was planning to wear black wedge booties, but since there is a monsoon going on outside right now... rain boots it is!

Go see what color everybody's legs are today...

WOW! You look great in this outfit! No Barney at all :) This dress and that belt look great with your purple tights. Great job!

Kayla was a BIG Barney fan. That kid used to watch it all the time. I still know some of the songs and that was 16 years ago! Heather

I like the purple tights, and they go well with the denim.

The purple and denim are a great pairing! I don't think they look too Barney-like, they're just the right amount of purple. :)

I love the purple, not barney at all. I wore purple leggings today too, with a denim shirt dress. It's like we're EBEW twins. ;)

I think the purple tights were a good purchase, you can practically use them as a neutral, and are a wonderful shade for the fall and winter.

Chic on the Cheap

Wait, are there really people out there who haven't heard of Barney? Wow. Barney was never this chic though. What a cute denim dress, and I love the belt detailing!

These purple ones are gorgeous, and I love them paired with the neutral dress. I like letting the tights stay the focal point :)
