Lookbook: Smurfette

I always have too much going on in my life that TV becomes the very very last priority. I never watch TV shows as they happen, I DVR everything and I end up watching them like 6 months later. I also don’t watch that many shows. I’ve never seen an episode of Lost, Heroes, So you think you can dance, Dancing with the stars, etc… The only way I know about these shows is through friends that watch them or Us Weekly! And when I do watch TV it’s usually what my husband is watching which consists of football, basketball, the history channel or It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (which I have come to love). We do have two TV’s but we don’t like to spend time apart when we are at home so we always just watch whatever the other person is watching. Anyway, long story short, the one show I have on DVR is Gossip Girl and I was finally catching up with the episodes I missed and noticed the girls and their crazy colored tights which is what inspired this outfit.

I’ve done purple and pink tights before but I think blue tights presented the biggest challenge! I debated on adding that blue cardigan as it might’ve been too blue but without it, it just wasn’t working so I went with it. I felt a bit like smurfette, all I needed was a white hat. šŸ™‚

I’m not completely sold on the brightly colored tights. I thought I would love them but just not sure yet. Will have to try out more and see!

Shop the Lookbook:

:: The Cardigan ::

okay so not totally like mine as it’s animal print but I love it!
ASOS – Vero Moda Oversized Animal Print Cardigan

Here’s a good basic cardigan or I like this pretty muted blue.

:: The Button Down ::

J Crew – Solid three-quarter sleeve stretch shirt

I also love Splendid shirts or this one with the ruffles is cute.

:: The Tulip Skirt ::

ASOS

this skirt is a great alternative or ooh look at this pretty one.

:: The Blue Tights ::

I like that these aren’t SO blue.

Forever 21 Rose Mesh Tights

these lace print tights are pretty too or you could just go for the leggings.

:: The High Heel Boots ::

Everyone’s got to own a classic pair of high heel leather boots. I bought mine last year on Gilt and I still love them.

Sergio Rossi Leather Over the Knee Boots

These Michael Kors boots are also fabulous, or these Joan & David’s. And I’m also loving these Sergio Rossi boots.

    I like that look, although I was never fan of colored tights, reminds me to much high school teenagers, but the way you wear it it's very elegant and I love your hair! Regards

    Hi tiffany– you look gorgeous in that deep blue color… Not sure I would coordinate with a matching cardi for myself. But bright colors punch up a dark ensemble, I think.

    Colored tights can be tricky but I think can look great! I have a purple pair that I love too. šŸ™‚ I think you pulled the blue of great!

    I love colored tights but agree with others that sometimes they can look juvenile depending on the color. However, your outfit is perfection. That cobalt blue is in no way Smurf-esque.

    oh, and, we only have one tv at home but like you, even if we had two, we like to be together when we're actually both home. My husband is a good sport and he'll indulge me while I watch GG or Vampire Diaries or whatever other shows I watch..and while he's watching football or whatever else I usually just catch up on my magazines.

    I don't always watch Gossip Girl, but sometimes I just look for photos from the show for inspiration. Maybe I should just watch the show with the volume off, so I don't get distracted? I do love their liberal use of bright-colored and textured tights. The blues you're wearing are so rich! I've been seeing that royal blue everywhere — great choice!

    Nice! I have some bright blue, red, and pink tights but I always feel afraid to wear them… I like the way you did it though. Also, thanks for that Gossip Girl pic… haven't seen that one! Love their tights though…

    I love the colorful tights look. I think it's so fresh and fun! But I have to be honest and say that girls like me and you don't rock it quite as well as the girls in the image above. They have such long, thin legs. Whereas you and I have meatier, more muscular calves. The bright colors really bring attention to the legs, so it makes sense that the style works better on gals with sexy gams.

    You totally rocked the bright tights look! And I'm a serious GG withdrawl. I get so down when I finish all the saved episodes on our DVR.

    Love your blog! And I wanted to let you know I've added you to my blogroll!

    You're so right, the cardigan is definitely necessary to this outfit. I think the bright tights look cute on you and on GG, though I'm not feeling the solid white tights Blair is wearing.

    Just remember, Smurfette was the best looking one! šŸ˜‰

    You look so cute and you don't look like a Smurfette…you are much cuter!
