Crazy Legs


Vintage cashmere sweater, Hue tights in Cosmos, vintage leather boots, vintage pink wool blazer, Forever 21 tee and skirt, Hue tights in Bordeaux, really old Ann Taylor oxfords, vintage Gucci blazer, Forever 21 tee, vintage purple skirt, gifted purple tights

A few outfits I wore lately, all incorporating my favorite fall accessory: colored tights. They are such an inexpensive, easy way to kick an outfit into more stylish territory. Plus, they keep me warm! (But the real reason I love tights is because they allow me to be obscenely lazy about shaving my legs.) I really want a few pairs in jewel tones like bright emerald and ruby red.

The cashmere sweater used to belong to my grandfather. It's insanely soft, and just long enough to pass as a dress!

I came about the pink blazer under some very odd circumstances, but suffice it to say that it's really warm, fits beautifully, and satisfies my craving for a brightly colored blazer perfectly! I am currently on the hunt for mint green and aqua blazers too.

The Gucci blazer I got at the thrift store where I volunteer. Since it had been there for more than a month (I have no idea how!), it was going to be sent out of the store, and I snagged it just in time! I love how it buttons.

Sorry for such a quick post, but I need to get dressed and head out for dinner to celebrate my brother's fourteenth birthday! We're going to a fantastic tapas restaurant with the best churros I have ever eaten - so psyched. Hope you all have stellar starts to your weekend!

Great purple tights! Love that color. Would it be fair to call it magenta?

Taryn said...

I'm so jealous you are able to wear such cute, cozy outfits. It was 95 degrees where I live today, not exactly optimum fall weather.

Aren't colored tights the best? They ad so much character to an outfit.

Nice looks; tights are a fall must.
P.S. The stretch picture was taken with my self-timer, I just set my camera in my lap. And I'm re-reading "The Golden Compass."

This sweater is gorgeous. Your text could be mine. I agree with you in all points (especially the shaving legs thing ^^)
I ate churros when I went to California back in may. I looooove them! We don't have them in Germany. Okay good for my shape but I'd love to have them here!

Wonderful honesty:
