red tights again

Here's my next installment in my project to recreate outfits I wore exactly ten years ago! This ensemble is inspired by this outfit that I posted on April 29, 2011. *Technically* I actually wore the outfit on April 28th and then posted it the next day, so I'm doing the same thing this time around too! :)

Looking back at my old archives, I've noticed that red tights were practically a neutral in my wardrobe back then lol! I wore them so often! I don't know if it's because they were popular at the time or because I was going through a huge Anna Karina phase or both, but I really love it. They're just so fun! I've been seeing so many articles popping up lately about how dated 2010's fashions are now, from skinny jeans to a-line skirts to those tall Jeffrey Campbell boots everyone (well, not me, but almost everyone) was wearing ten years ago. And I really don't care. I truly love every dress in my wardrobe. I love dressing in bright fun colors even if the prevailing trends skew towards beige. I love t-strap flats and polka dots and short cropped cardigans with impractical 3/4 sleeves. I also love a lot of the fashions from my teenage years that are coming back now, like camisole/cardigan sets with little bow ties in the front, tie dye, and bell bottoms. I think the best thing about modern fashion is that we have so much to choose from! So I'm breaking out the red tights again and wearing them confidently into a sea of wide leg mom jeans and matching sweatsuit sets, perfectly confident in my unique yet outdated self! :)
