{Outfit Inspiration} Plum & Lavender

No sooner than I sang the praises of Spring’s colored jeans, does Mother Nature bitch-slap remind us who’s boss! True to Texas weather, we went from 80 to 49-degrees in one day. Back came the black tights. This time paired with two shades of purple.

I love pairing two tones of the same hue, as long as one is significanly lighter than the other. If the colors are too close it will just look like you dressed in the dark. The black top breaks up the purple, and keeps me from looking like Barney the Dinosaur.

This outfit also mixes patterns, if you count the dots in the top and the horizontal lines of the ruffled skirt.

The temperature is back to 80-degrees as I write this post, so hopefully we’ve seen the last of black tights for the season. Which means I’d better stock up on self-tanner before I frighten the neighbors! Are you still dressing for Fall, or have you made the switch to Spring? What color do you like to layer in tones?
