What NYC Recessionista Wears: Chartreuse Tights

I have this pair of tights from J. Crew Factory that are sort of in between colors … it’s kind of a yellow-ish, green-ish, gold-ish color. So I just call them chartreuse for the hell of it ūüôā

Uncommon Goods earrings / heart necklace c/o by boe / J. Crew Factory chambray shirt (similar) / LOFT cardigan /  bracelets c/o Ann Taylor (spring 2013) / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova / LOFT skirt (similar) / J. Crew Factory tights (similar) / Payless flats

I felt so slim in this outfit!  I really like the fit of this skirt. It’s fitted but VERY comfortable, and I think that’s thanks to the knit fabric of it. But even though it’s very soft and has a lot of give, it’s not at all flimsy.

I got these bracelets in the gift bag at the press preview for Ann Taylor’s spring 2013 collection and I love them already.

They’re the perfect mix of bling (look at all those stones!) with some more casual elements (like the neon string).

The pictures unfortunately don’t really do these tights justice — they are much more fun in person.
