OOTD: Black and Brown Stripes


I like dressing up, but in the Fall and Winter months it is definitely harder to do in the Seattle area due to the cold and near constant rain. However, a few years ago my aunt gave me a pair of for Christmas and have enjoyed dressing up a bit more ever since. These tights are wonderful. They have a sock portion attached to the tights so that they are more comfortable and durable for wearing with boots. And they keep my feet much warmer than normal tights! Like I mentioned before, I have had these tights for several years and have yet to get a tear or hole in them, which is pretty amazing.

But enough about the tights, I have to talk about this skirt as well. It’s such a fun structured piece that I happened onto last year while shopping with my mom. It was on sale at Madewell and I couldn’t pass it up. I love that it’s a higher waisted skirt and that it has pockets. A win-win in my book. Happy Wednesday!

On a side note, I typically would have the sock portion of the tights pulled down further, but I wanted for them to be visible for this post.
