Back in Tights

Like I was saying...we had some crummy weather last week.  I had a container full of tights sitting by the patio door, awaiting the move to their summer home (the garage).  I was glad they hadn't made it that far, because apparently they were still needed. 

It was official last night...to the garage they went.  Certainly we won't have another stint of cold weather until at least September.  Oh golly, who am I kidding.  This is Minnesota.  Tights should be within grabbing distance year-round, but I'm stubborn like that.  Bare legs from here on out, there's no goin' back [out to the garage].

I hadn't planned to triple-layer with a blazer, it just worked out that way...and I liked it.  Still not convinced of the red skirt on red tights, but I didn't dislike it enough to change, so red legs twas.  Yes, I just used the word 'twas', probably incorrectly too...but it gave me a little giggle inside, so it's staying.  Indeed, it twis.  Oh boy, I'm in a silly mood.  I better stop before this gets out of hand.

You're quite pretty. You remind me of a blonde Anna Paquin.

I love that color of tights. I've been contemplating another purchase from We Love Colors, but I've been holding off since it is not at all tights season, despite what the thermometer is telling me right now!

Great look!

I love your monochrome skirt and tights look! The striped top over the collared blouse with the denim blazer is perfect!
