Outfit of the day: Gap dress



Outfit Details:


dress - Gap, cardigan - Winners, necklace - Costa Blanca, shoes - Aerosoles (via Winners), tights - Joe Fresh

So two things:

1) It's May and I am still wearing tights and boots daily. Does this seem wrong to you?

2) I'm wearing purple tights. Purple tights!

The purple tights are just a wee bit out of my comfort zone, and to be completely honest, I was not trying to push any boundaries when I pulled them on today. I was running really really late and after rooting around in my tights drawer, I realized that all my navy, brown and grey tights were in the laundry hamper. It was either smurfy blue, black (didn't feel right with this outfit) or purple. I gave it maybe 2 seconds of thought before thinking... okay, purple it is. Have confidence, you can rock them!



These shoes are a recent bargain find from Winners. I'm hoping they fulfill my lust for the Aldo Equia:


and Seychelles Veronica:


that I missed out on from seasons past.

I love the outfit! With the shoes, I honestly thought they must have been seychelles, they look so similar.

Way to rock those tights! I love them :) Is the Gap dress a recent find? It's super cute! I second the notion that those shoes look very Seychelles-esque, and I also must join in on the lusting over those Equia heels. Sigh. I have them in black but I so wish I would have gotten the other ones!

@eek - Thanks!

@matilda - Thanks so much. This is actually my first time wearing this necklace despite owning it for four months (proof that I have too much stuff LOL). I think it'll get a lot of wear now that the weather is warming up.

@Minnesota - Thanks! I was thrilled to find them. I think the bronze will go with a lot too

@Carly - Now I'm jealous... you own the Equia in black? What size do you wear again? ;)

@kristin - Thanks... at first I felt a little "out there" with the purple tights, but by the end of day, I didn't feel self-concious at all!
