Skirts or dresses, with cute little flats. Occasionally I throw in a pair of shorts or jeans when the rain clouds roll in…but my standard uniform is a skirt and flats, even my work summer uniform
But when the fall chill hits I’m not ready to trade in my skirts and flats. It isn’t the right time for boots, sweaters and jeans either. I want to pretend that snow isn’t coming so soon. Instead I extend my summer wardrobe with tights.
Tights are so much better than panty hose. I should know. I have to wear them with my official uniform and I’m lucky if I can get them on without a rip let alone a second time. I’ve even tried the expensive pairs that required a promise of my first born…no go. Pantyhose is just cruel and unusual punishment, requiring lots of money out of my pocket, and plenty of swear words running through my head as I try to get one pair on. But tights are so much more fun.
Some of my tights have been around for years..my favorite pair I’ve had for almost 4 years. No rips, no runs, no problem. They’re old friends I enjoy digging out of the attic every September when the cool winds roll in. They make the best fashion accessory coming in so many colors and patterns.
Tights can turn a cute summer dress into a fun fall outfit. Or I can take my basic solid dress and spice it up with some patterns.
I can even have some fun with a few pairs that look like the tights of my childhood but somehow make my outfits look so sophisticated.
I really do love my tights. So much so that I can’t stop exploring the tights section of any store I enter. My tights addiction is like Hunni’s need to read every greeting card in Target.
Just looking at these makes me giddy with ideas of what to pair them with. I can’t wipe the smile off my stocking feet face.
I might have the beginning of a small problem. When visiting Boston I saw these in Newberry Comics. I don’t know if they would be completely appropriate.
Hunni had to pull me away from them by threatening I would have to get it tattooed on my legs. Cool then I could be like MizFit! I think I need to start preparing for Christmas stockings instead of buying even more tights 🙂
How do you extend your wardrobe?
