Tights are back

The tights are out. And I'd forgotten how badly organized they are, which isn't a reflection of my organizational skills, but of the place where I'm forced to keep them. I have no drawer space, so imagine keeping your tights in a box under the bed. Every time you need a pair you are forced to dump out the box and make a mess and even if you take the time to fold them up all nice and neat, as soon as you need a pair that's on the bottom, it's a huge mess again.

Tights are back

It's raining. Again. And will tomorrow and possibly Thursday. The weatherman is promising me a beautiful weekend though. He'd better not be lying, because I can't take anymore grey skies.

Tights are back

Dress TJMaxx - Shoes Tahari - Belt Thrifted - Earrings Arabella - Tights Don't Remember


I need to wear blazers with shorts. Need.

  1. I busted out tights for the first time today, too! It's kind of depressing and nice all at the same time. Your outfit looks perfect for early fall.

    Have you tried hanging your tights? I tie mine around hangers, which is pretty handy when picking out a pair in the morning.

  2. I second the suggest to hang your tights. They're easier to find when their hanging out in the open.

    I love the dress!

    Congrats on winning the CSN giveaway! My friend Jen and I have one of those going on at our joint fashion blog (StyleThroughHerEyes.com) right now. CSN must be in a very giving mood - I keep seeing people hosting their giveaways! Haha

  7. I'm a tights addict. Thankfully I have some storage space or else I would be screwed. I tend to keep a million pairs on hand, because when i need them, there's always seem to be holes that have gone unnoticed until that point!! I've been relishing tights season all week!

  10. I keep my tights in a Target bag. Your box is way classier. How did I never think to tie them on a hanger like other commenters have said?!
    I'm imagining shorts, blazer, and tights.... Too cute.

    Congrats on your win!

  28. I have the same storage dilema. No drawer space, so my bin of tights is in my too-full closet also serving as a tripping hazard. Worth it though. So glad to be wearing tights again!

  31. I got super ambitious and busted out tights weeks ago and I died of heat stroke. Big mistake. I loop mine on a hanger and that seems to keep them pretty well organized.

    I love your belt and how you tied it! I looks so clean and polished.

    I hope you get your warm weather!

  38. I considered bringing my tights out this morning, but I wore pants instead. I couldn't do it! Blazers with shorts are totally doable. Love this!
