Purple Person

It would seem that Minnesota got it's November weather in October and September weather in November. It's been beautiful outside! I was concerned that these tights would have to wait until springtime to make their debut, but here they are!

I'm not super crazy about purple. I don't feel like it's a good color on me. Although for some strange reason I seem to have incorporated a lot of it into my wardrobe over the last couple of years. The dress alone was just too purple for me and somewhat unstructured for a day at work without heels. I thought the vest pulled it together, toned down the purple, and made it a bit more professional.

Obviously, this outfit is all about the tights. Even though I sit behind a desk all day, I still managed to get a few questionable looks and comments about them.

Vest: Vintage, thrifted
Dress: TJ Maxx (?)
Tights: TJ Maxx, $6
Boots: DSW

Okay, I need those tights in my life. They go so well with the purple dress! I might be biased towards purple because I love it so much, but I gotta say I think it looks great on you. And the vest over the dress breaks up the color perfectly!

I am wearing tights just like yours today too; only mine are black. Are they Betsey Johnson (TJMaxx Betsey Johnson)? Once again girl, another great outfit!
