It's Not Easy Being Green

Everybody, Everywear: Colored Tights


Hi, everyone! Hope you're having a great week :) Today I'm dedicating this post to the Everybody, Everywear challenge! This month's winner is colored tights and even though the weather over here right now doesn't lend itself to warm clothing (we're in the middle of spring and it has finally started getting warm enough to wear bare legs) I thought it'd be fun to participate. Because... who doesn't love colored tights?! ;)


¡Hola a todos! Espero que estén pasando una buena semana :) Hoy esta entrada está dedicada al desafío de Everybody, Everywear. La prenda ganadora de este mes son las medias (panty) de colores y aunque el clima acá ya no está como para usar ropa abrigada (estamos en plena primavera y ya hace bastante calorcito, lo que permite usar polleras sin medias) me pareció que sería divertido participar de igual manera... porque, ¡¿a quién no le gustan las medias de colores?! ;)


Anyway, I think Kermit The Frog was right: It's not easy being green. You see, I love colored tights and I have a few of different colors: purple, blue, brown, burgundy, black, white, grey and green. And even though I enjoy wearing all of them, I think the green ones are probably the hardest ones to remix. I've worn them twice since I got them and both times I wore them with green flats and a denim skirt... pretty boring, you say? Probably. So for this challenge I decided to try them on with something different:


Pero bueno, la Rana René tenía razón: No es fácil ser verde. Les explico. Me encantan las medias de colores y tengo varias en distintas tonalidades: lilas, azules, marrones, bordó, negras, blancas, grises y las verdes. Y aunque me gusta usarlas todas, creo que las verdes son las que más me cuesta usar. Con esto me refiero que desde que las compré, me las puse dos veces y ambas veces las usé con una pollera de jean y con chatitas verdes... bastante aburrido, ¿no? Puede ser. Por eso, para este desafío, decidí ponérmelas con alguna otra cosa:





So I wore them with a white shirt and a flowery skirt from Zara, and with my pair of brown oxfords...

Así que me las puse con una camisa blanca y una pollera floreada, ambas prendas de Zara, y con mis oxfords marrones...





Can you tell the tights are green? I didn't even think about my green-painted closet doors...  

¿Se nota que son medias verdes? Ni siquiera pensé en las puertas verdes de mi armario....





But I must say I'm pretty happy about the way this outfit turned out... I probably would have never worn these tights with this skirt had it not been for the challenge. I know, I still have a long way to go in the remixing department. But I'm learning every day! ;) And that's thanks to challenges like this and to all the awesome outfits we get to see in the EBEW website and the different blogs we follow. Thanks so much for the daily inspiration :)

See you next time!

Pero debo admitir que estoy bastante contenta por cómo quedó este conjunto... probablemente nunca habría usado estas medias con esa pollera si no hubiera sido por este desafío. Ya sé, todavía me falta aprender mucho en lo que respecta a combinar diferentes prendas. ¡Pero aprendo un poquito cada día! ;) Y eso es gracias a desafíos como éste y a todos los increíbles conjuntos que vemos en la página de EBEW y en los diferentes blogs que seguimos :) Muchas gracias por la inspiración diaria.

¡Nos vemos la próxima!

Taking it Literal: Since I made a Kermit the Frog reference in the post, it only makes sense to share the video of him singing his famous song, wouldn't you agree? :) So, take it away, Kermit!


Literalmente: Ya que hice una referencia a la Rana René en la entrada en cuestión, es lógico que postee el video ella cantando su famosa canción, ¿no les parece? :) ¡Cantá nomás, René!

Don't you love being challenged by these things? They make me more daring and better at remixing too. I can totally tell your tights are green, kind of a teal maybe? Either way, they're CUTE :)

Berni and Pauli said...

Hi! Yes, absolutely! These challenges are great, I love to check on the results each month and find out what particular piece of clothing was the winner, it's a lot of fun, hehe. I think the tights are a bit darker than teal, but oh my! I would love to have a pair of teal-colored tights! Hehe. Thanks so much for reading and for leaving a comment! :)

teehee I think Kermit the Frog would definately agree that you look very lovely in those green tights ^^. I think it was a fantastic pairing with that clean white skirt, totally contrasting but in such a lovely way =)

You are the cutest! I always feel all Kermity when I wear my green tights too. Or I believe according to my little sister, Elphaba (From Wicked). But they are fun, so who cares?! :)
