It definitely is a challenge to find the perfect colors or shades of colors to go together. I find it frustrating that even though I have a pair of tights in every color (and some colors in different shades), I still can't ever find a pair to go with certain outfits. That's just insane, right?
This outfit was a result of other failed outfits due to a lack-of-tights situation. Or the fact that I don't want to wear a cardigan with the outfit, or that I don't have the right colored cardigan in the first place. So I threw this together, and while I thought the tights I'm wearing might look weird, they actually turned out okay.

I can't believe I haven't really worn this dress a lot. I bought it to wear to my cousin's wedding last summer and haven't worn it since. It's adorned with lots of things that I love: floral, gingham, and a sailor collar. Plus, it has the perfect 50s-style shape to it. The patterns in general are reminiscent of that time period. Sweet, vintage-y goodness. :)
Tomorrow I plan on test driving a car! I am in desperate need of a new one. I still drive my mom's old '97 Toyota and it's pretty much on its last leg (tire?). I'm looking into Honda Civics since they seem pretty affordable, good on gas, and reliable. Everyone tells me that it's such a "mom" car, but I'm not really big on cars. I just want something that's going to work and not cost me as much! However, it'd be really nice someday to have a vintage car to take care of and bring to car shows. I would love a vintage car in that classic turquoise with white trim. I would love to take it out on nice days and listen to oldies with the windows down. :)
