Not gonna lie…I was little worried about looking totally wacky wearing these tights to school. Don’t get me wrong, I like to make a statement. I just prefer that that statement isn’t “I’m 4 years old and dressed myself for the first time today!”
But my mind was put at ease. I got about 50 compliments from friends, strangers, and the guy who works at the cafe in my building (he says something about my clothes almost every day…I think he’s my biggest fan). On a side note, I learned that some people still use the term “stockings.” This was news to me. In my book, stockings are for hanging by the chimney with care. These are tights.
I’m happy to know I can get away with these for class, but I’m looking forward to dressing them up a bit for a holiday party!
Sweater: Victoria’s Secret, old (similar)
Dress (worn as skirt): H&M, old but still available
Tights: Kate Spade

Um, make that 51 compliments. As soon as I saw the first pic I had an involuntary “oooh!!! polka dots!!” moment. And with those flats? Perfection.
Also, you said you’re a Clueless fan – you miiight love the post I have going up tomorrow. Hope you have a sec to check it out 🙂

Ooh you’ll have to remind me! I’m excited.
In love with these “stockings”
Very whimsical! I love them. They add such a fun element to a look that could be quite serious otherwise.
I actually planned the rest of the “serious” outfit around the tights to balance the whimsy. It was only Monday, after all. Can’t go too crazy so early in week.
haha I say stockings! Usually for sheer tights…and tights for opaque tights? I don’t know why but I do. Either way, they’re cute!
Call them what you will as long as you like them! 🙂
Love the “stockings!” Can’t wait to see how you style them for the holidays:)
Found you through your post on Bonnie’s blog. Love these tights!
Polka dots! People still call them stockings? haha… love them either way.
LOVE these tights! It has just occurred to me who you resemble…. that cute blond from that awesome show that lasted one season… Jack and Jill… Isn’t her name Sarah too? Paulson?? At any rate, cute outfit here, and I love the most recent one with the green/navy. Great top and great boots! Happy Weekend!
That’s so funny…You’re the second person to tell me recently that I look like Sarah Paulson, but no one has ever mentioned it before that. Maybe I only recently started looking like her? Haha. Well I’m not sure I see it, but I won’t complain since she’s quite pretty!
The tights are so fun! Great look!
