Southern California girls don’t wear tights. I remember buying a pair specifically for a very cold Las Vegas weekend when I knew my legs would freeze in my skimpy dress. My friends made me feel foolish for even *thinking* about wearing tights.
So I’ve been apprehensive of them for years, but have secretly wanted a grey pair of sweater tights for a while. I knew they’d look great, but was embarrassed to wear them, because SoCal is the land of bare legs.
I finally bought a pair, and guess what? They make my scrawny legs look great! The texture and color of these tights give my legs some presence. Look, Ma…I have calves!
These shoes have sat in my closet unworn for a while now, and I’m determined to wear them this year. I love them, but my wardrobe had to grow before it could do them justice. My first attempt may have been a little ambitious, as I threw together all my closet misfits, hoping it would all work out. Surprisingly, it was close, but not quite doing the shoes justice.
A few commenters suggested I try them with grey tights and a skirt, and luckily, I just so happened to pick up this pair of tights from the Nordstrom B.P. department a few days earlier. Good job readers! What a great combination! I have the feeling I’ll finally be wearing my Dolce & Gabbana lovelies this winter. =)
