Pinspired: print dress + colored tights

Today is the second day of my week of Pinspired looks. Today's outfit was inspired by this pin {via Merrick's Art}. I'm frequently looking for new ways to wear my burgundy tights, so when I saw the pin, I knew I had enough of the pieces to recreate the look. I just had to wait for a cold front. Yesterday's "wintry mix" made today the perfect occasion to wear it. That, and it's Taco Tuesday.

If I were to re-do this outfit, I'd roll up my sleeves, and tie my scarf so that it didn't hang below the jacket. Oh, and I'd not have a hole in my tights. But that could just be perfectionism talking.

  1. I love this look of Merrick's and your recreation of it! The leaves on your dress are a nicer print and I really like the colorful scarf you added more!

  2. What a great recreation - love the pattern of your dress. I always struggle with colored tights and think they look odd on me.


  3. This is such a great look...I love that dress! Plus I'm just excited to wear my jean jacket again the second the weather is decent enough again to not need a winter coat. :)


  4. Love this look! You're making me think I should get some more colorful tights for myself. At this time of year they ought to be on clearance...
    Anyway, I really like your re-creation of this look with the colorful scarf. Cute!

  5. My burgundy tights are my favorite pair of tights! This is probably my favorite dress of yours. It's such a good versatile piece for being a print! Yay for taco Tuesday! We had taco Monday yesterday :)

  6. I love those tights! You recreated this look to perfection!

  7. You literally recreated this almost to a tea! I love the outfit and the way you took tights I'd normally associate with fall and made this a perfect springy look.

  9. such a fantastic look. You look stunning, as always, hun. Love this! If you get a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest. :)


  10. Ugh, holey tights are so frustrating! But I probably wouldn't have noticed if you didn't mention it, so it's all good. Anyway, I love this dress. The print is just so pretty!

  11. you did an awesome job recreating this look

  12. A great recreation of the look! You really did have all the right pieces. I'm always looking for inspiration to wear my burgundy tights too.

  13. Haha I loved your comment about the holes in your tights - I totally wear tights with holes all the time. They wear out so fast!

    I really like this outfit a lot - the pattern on the dress is really pretty. And I love Merrick's style, so any take on it is a win in my book!

  14. YES! You nailed this one! I can't believe that you had all of the components of this outfit in your closet! I have burgundy tights but I rarely wear them because I don't know what to put them with. I'll have to see if I can create an outfit similar to this!

  15. Wow, this is so great, Kate! I really liked Merrick's outfit, but I like yours as well. You always manage to put your own spin on outfits, which I really like. I totally love the dark red tights - I haven't worn mine in a little while, but I totally love them and I might need to wear them once more before it gets too warm (I'm being suuuper optimistic here...).

  16. this is such a great outfit, kate! i absolutely love how everything came together. the dress is especially catching my eye, and i love the option you linked to! i can't remember the last time i wore my maroon tights either so i should really take some inspiration from your look here.
