Colored Tights and Lots of Layers...

Hey my loves....

I hope everyone is off to an awesome start today. My day actually took a great turn when I received a code for a FREE Redbox rental for tonight. That means QT with my honey which is always a great thing.

Yet another great thing in my opinion happens to be these colored tights. I freaking love them.

I usually reserve my tights to be layered underneath work pants during those cold, winter days, however, since I get a kick out of showing off my colored and patterned tights, I pair them with cut offs and/or skirts when the weather permits.

I purchased these shorts off season at Aeropostale last year for $5.99. I really like the effect of layering the tights with the shorts and knee high socks.

It allows me to still be stylish AND comfortable without freezing my buns off.


Since I was striving for a semi-preppy look I added this thrifted Zara blazer

Blazer-Thrifted (Zara)
 I love it's corduroy texture too-perfect for layering.

When I felt myself getting too warm, I removed the blazer and I was left with this...

Pretty plaid and pearls!!

Plaid-thrifted (JCrew)|Sweater-Thrifted (Forever 21)
 In my opinion, this is the perfect combination for those days when I wanna dress up without feeling like I'm overdoing it.

Which pieces in your closet are essential for layering?

I can't wait to hear from you.

Thanks for reading!

  4. love the colorful tights, high socks, high boots, and short shorts look! i wore a similar look today: a short balloon dress, thermal tights, legwarmers, and tall(ish) boots. i think thermals are essential for layering and being able to pull of short looks in winter, at least here in NE.
