Stripes, Jeans, Leopard and Avoidance

Lately I've been strategically avoiding all the skirts in my capsule. It's not that I don't like them, I do, but it's getting to that point where going bare-legged is no longer an option. I consider a skirt, then I peer into my drawer full of tights, and then quickly decide that I'm just not ready yet. I'm sure it's mostly mental, but when I pull out that first pair of tights I feel like I've surrendered myself to winter. By the end of February, I'm oh. so. tired. of wearing tights all the dang time. It's only the beginning of November, and I'm just not ready to go there.

How do you feel about tights? Do you "hold out" until the very end too?

  1. Now that you mention it... I'm realizing I haven't worn a skirt or dress yet, only leggings and jeans!! So yup, sounds like I'm holding out too! And boyfriend jeans, there's nothing better, love how you put this look together!! xoxo

  3. I hear you- too cool for bare legs, but I'm not ready for the tights game just yet. I feel this way about sweaters too- I get so weary of them by the end of February, I want to screeeeeeamm.

    Love this stripes + blazer combo. So good, doll!

  4. I have pulled out the tights a couple of times already - only because I have a new pair from Old Navy that feel more like leggings. Otherwise I agree, not ready for that yet! I love this entire look, I seriously want to steal it!

  5. Thanks Ashley! I swear, if winter were just a month or two shorter, all these problems would be solved!!

  6. Thanks Beth! I know I'll have to restock my tights inventory, so I'll check out Old Navy if they have some comfy ones!

  7. Ooh love a distressed jeans/blouse combo - as you'll see :) Great with a blazer on top too!


    And I do this tights thing too but even more so with boots. They might sound fun at the beginning of fall, but I know how much I'm going to hate even the perfect pair by the end of winter...

  8. Thanks! Yes, I agree about boots. Although I've already busted them out, I try to limit them and wear flats as much as possible. Some days my feet are just too cold though!

  9. This outfit is perfect! The blazer really adds a structured and cool look to the entire outfit. I'm not a huge fan of tights, but I definitely wear black ones under dresses with heels or boots in the winter when it's really cold!

  10. Thanks Jenna! The blazer was enough to keep me warm this time, but I know I'll be headed towards tights-land (and coat-land!) soon enough...yuck.
