The inspiration calendar for Tuesday instructed me to pair red and black to “make a statement”, but I switched it up a bit with the maroon instead of red. I am absolutely in love with these tights—the fit, the color, the feel. Everything about them is amazing.
This outfit it super similar to the one I wore a while back, what with the belted sweater over the pencil skirt, but the other items make it different. I like trying one or two changes to make an outfit different. It keeps me from wearing the same exact thing all the time.
I didn’t want to wear a necklace or anything around my neck, but I thought the dangly long earrings would work well. Things like this tend to look better with smaller, simple necklaces or with none at all. I do adore the danglies.
I was so happy when I found these at the Naturalizer Outlet in Maine when I visited my cousin there a few years ago. I’d been on the lookout for a stylish, more professional mary jane shoe (as compared to the chunky Candie’s I’ve got).
