Yes, bare legs again. Winter is a privilege here in Texas, not a right. But this is not a complaint from me. I'll take fall layers and knee high sock any day. Winter is hard for me style-wise. I feel like it's the same thing over and over but with tights, so Fall can stay as long as he'd like. A wise woman once said on Twitter "It's that time of year where I always think 'this outfit would be so much cuter... if I didn't have to wear tights..'" Thankfully today I didn't have to go there. But there is always the fear of tights tomorrow.

  3. I feel pretty much the same, it's like I feel like I keep putting on the same thing, over and over again and then just change the tights.

    yeah...I'm kind of over the tights already. Sometimes I love adding brightly colored tights to update an outfit, and sometimes I just wish I didnt have to wear them. Love this outfit :)

  7. I am so jealous of your warm weather - I'm wearing tights AND leggings today, and I'm still freezing in my office!  It's currently 23F with no promise of warm weather until April or May. Keep rockin' the cute outfits, lady!

  12. I love your pattern mixing! I wouldn't have thought that plaid and stripes would go together so seamlessly, but it looks effortless.

  14. I'm pouting. One: because I'm wearing tights (again) (there's no question that it's winter here). And two: because that J.Crew shirt is sold out. Yes, the Madewell version is cute, but still.

    Anyhoo, you and your bare legs look great as usual.

  15. Love this, kendi! Wish jcrew would bring that shirt back...

    Love the pairing between the stripped skirt and the shirt!

  46. I feel you on the Winter meh-ness. I find that I end up getting lazy because it's just harder to dress cute, or at least I find that it is. Summer and Autumn are just more fun!

  47. Silly question but I have been looking for socks like that and cant find plain colors could you advise.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I think every single girl can relate to this! I just graduated and I knew I had to wear tights with my dress.  It looked 100% better without any type of tight, so I had to wear nude pantyhose. They are cringe worthy(who likes pantyhose anways?), but so worth it in the end. All in the name of fashion!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love the plaid and stripes together.  Are you interested in a winter 30 for 30 again?

  50. What a simply perfect way to wear this skirt. I'm definitely going to have to try this one out.

  62. Another great winter outfit here.  I'm afraid I would have to wear tights though in the freezing cold UK weather (sigh).  New follower here, love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I live in New England where winter is here from October through April. I started looking at my cold-weather style a little differently in that I get to put together two outfits instead of one. My outerwear is a whole separate look that I get to style on top of whatever indoor-outfit I'm wearing to work or wherever that day. And yes, I get incredibly sick of tights, too, but again, I look at that in a "What fun color tights can I wear to jazz this outfit up a little?" It's all about perspective.

  71. I may also have superhuman legs. From running. We won't go there. :)

  72. I feel the same way about tights.. sometimes. Not always!
