Welcome back to the fold, tights

Today has been an insanely gorgeous fall day, very brisk in the morning and warm and sunny by the early afternoon. I've had some meetings and volunteered at a local middle school, so I wanted to be comfortable and covered. This skirt is a big longer than a lot of the skirts I wore this summer but it's a terrific length for biking and a nice alternative to jeans on these cold and hot days.

Welcome back to the fold, tights

Even though I totally have winter panic like Megan, I also love the cooler temperatures and I was excited to put on tights for the first time this morning. They are so much more comfortable than jeans and pants--so even if they make you feel a little more "dressed up," you actually feel like you're wearing pajamas...delightful.

CLOTHED MUCH, a modest fashion blog

<3 tights! Jealous that you can wear them already!!! I need help on the skirt tutorial, btw. I've made five now and I can't seem to get it right! Mine are MUCH more full.

LOL- right after saying that, my word verification was "tents."

So cute - I love the minimalism and simplicity of this outfit!

So lovely - what color are the tights?

I like the medium brown boots and belt paired with the blues.

I've just started to break out my boots...it's still a little too warm for me with tights. but I'm excited for boots :-)

i love that little belt! it's been a little too hot to wear tights here, but i've been wearing lacey ones as to not sweat the whole day.

Future Lint said...

Love the stripes and the skirt color! I agree, I am ready to embrace the tights (but I know I'll be sick to death of them by February!)

Rebecca said...

i have worn tights a few times, but i'm trying to hold off b/c soon i wont have an option to wear them. once the cold sets in, they'll be mandatory for months!

Ahhh! LOVE it. This is what I've been dreaming of wearing this week. And, um, I actually ordered these boots (I think the same pair) as they were on sale...so...perhaps soon I will be living that dream! :) love the mix of brown, black, and blue.

I love it! I busted my tights back out a couple of weeks ago (although I too fear winter).

megannielsen said...

hehe yeah lets panic together! Though I am totally a fan of tights too - I find them way way more comfy than jeans as well. cuter too!

I really love this look my dear! It's such a perfect fall outfit!

Oh seeing your fall outfit makes me cry. L.A. is suffering a record heat wave right now. Wilting wilting ...

I don't comment much (I'm shy ...), but I wanted to drop a note and express how much I enjoy your style and the voice you write in. Coupled with a few others, your blog has definitely inspired me to start my own and I hope you'll check it out sometime. :-)

I love this outfit, especially how you mixed black and brown. That blue skirt is so pretty. Yay for boot weather (well, not yet here, but almost)..

Maria said...

Yes, yes, yes! I love every aspect of your outfit and I'm totally 100% copying it tomorrow. I can't wait!

Rosiecat said...

I really like those boots! I'm not much of a boot person--I generally wear them only when snow threatens my feet--but you are forcing me to reconsider my position on this issue...

Justine said...

Tights really do make a difference when you're dressing up or down :)

Just Better Together

Terri said...

Hmmm, the second pair of Steve Madden boots I've admired today. Must check out that line of boots.

Larysse Tavares said...

Lady, how I love your boots :) I love this outfit because it reminds me of the end of last year when I started visiting your blog! Aww, it's been almost a year! =)

Beijo! :*
