For the longest time I was a real jeans girl. People would be shocked to see me in anything but jeans, and lets face it, that only happened like once a year.
I am still a massive fan of jeans, but I'm a really girly girl and so skirts and dresses have been making a regular appearance over time. Usually in winter I resort back to being in my jeans, but this year I want to try and push myself into different styles and fashions that I have been too quick to dismiss in other years.
This season I've been really loving mustard's, plums and dark greens. Splashed with a grey to pull it back a bit. I've also been enjoying seeing lots of knits coming out.
I was however pleasantly surprised when I found this big knitted jumper and upon putting it on how much I liked it. And so kicked off the beginning of what I can assume will be a long friendship with tights.
Warning: Tights should NOT be worn as pants alone. If you want to do this, good on you, but it won't stop me laughing at you. Please, wear a long shirt with your tights, a tunic, or a really short dress. The idea is that you shouldn't see your tight clad ass.
The knit is from Dotti and I got it on sale for $40. The tights are from my drawer, brand and price unknown but I have seen a lot of good thick coloured tights around. I mused that this knit would also suit a light grey tight, but then I would have to change the scarf. The scarf is from the local markets and cost me $5, but again I've seen lots of these around in lots of different stores fro around $10-$15. The ankle boots are Emerson from BigW and cost me $11. (Yes $11!)
The scarf is a key part to this knit. Without it I feel like I'm draped in a potato sack as the knit doesn't cling or enhance any shape. I tried a belt and laughed at how ridiculous I looked, but found draping a scarf down the middle helped create a nice line.
On colder days I layer this look up by wearing a shirt underneath, long or short sleeved depending on the temperature, and it really does keep me feeling toasty warm.
