What I'm Wearing: Merry and Bright

I was ready for some bright and funky colors.  I tend to wear a lot of black and gray once the cold weather sets in, but with the recent heatwave and gray skies, I was inspired to bring some color to the world. "Joy to the world, the Kassi shines, let earth receive their queen." Kidding. That was over-the-top and quite possibly blasphemous, but it was all in jest. These are my first bright tights of the season, and apparently people in small towns have never seen goldenrod tights before because when I went to get lunch and to stop at a store after work, people looked at me like I was out of my tree. Oh well, guess they didn't think my outfit was a ray of sunshine.

I have not wore this floral top since summer, but I love all of the beautiful colors in it. Instead of pairing it with neutrals, I decided to go bold with fuchsia and goldenrod. I did go for neutral shoes though, that counts for something right?  Do you ever go all out and wear several bright colors together?

Top: Burke's, Cardigan: JC Penney, Skirt: New York & Company, Tights: Macy's, 
Shoes: Kohl's, Earrings: H&M

  1. I usually don't go for bright colors, except for maybe a pop of color in my accessories. I'll get there...

  7. Oh my goodness! The weather (and general atmosphere) here in Seattle is so dim and grey that I would LOVE to see someone dressed as colorfully as you walking around! I love this outfit, Kassi, and PFFT at anyone who doesn't appreciate your brilliance (both intellectually and, erm, outfitually... which is a word... I checked... ::shifty eyes::)

    In other news, I like your rendition of that particular classic Christmas carol. I'm eager to hear others.

  15. I LOVE it!! The bright colors together are so nice. I love your tights. I wore bright tights to work once and I got so many comments about them. Maybe people just don't feel comfortable with bright colors!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
