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 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.

La Historiadora de Moda said...

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

I love the dress!

Kinsey said...

I broke out my tights for the first time today as well!

Closet Fashionista said...

Love the outfit! And yea...my tights are all mixed in with my unmentionables and bathing suits, haha

Tights...I have some giant, mental draw full! So impossible to find the good ones!

Casee Marie said...

Love love love the look! Those Tahari shoes are just gorgeous. And I'm a huge fan of the blazers-and-shorts combo as well. (:

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

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!

Daniela said...

love that dress ! very pretty color.

Diana said...

love this look! that belt is perfect for this dress :)

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!

Style Eyes said...

I have a similar problem with tights in a mess. I so need to get organised. Love your dress and congrats on winning the comp

La Fille D'or said...

you look so cute and cozy in that dress! But, do hope that you get your sunny weekend. As for tights - I don't have very many to orgnize and they are just stuck in a drawer I sae with the hubs - and actually thanks for reminding me I need to get a new pair of black ones for NYC!

Elaine said...

That sounds like my sock and belt drawer! All in one drawer... Horrible.

CLOTHED MUCH, a modest fashion blog

Katie said...

Great outfit - love the dress!

Krystal said...

I'm quite excited about tights! And I've gotten to sneak in some blazers with shorts lately - the temp is just right for it!

Okay we are totally parallel life-ing it right now. i totally had to dump my tights out today and make a hot mess before the refold. All the while all I could think of was developing some other solution. Argh

Vanessa said...

Love the tights, and you made it til October before breaking them out. Pretty impressive!

Jilliebeanie said...

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!

Krissy Engle said...

I'm wearin' my tights today too! It's cold out here in Portland! Love your blog!

Kenzie said...

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!

Amber Blue Bird said...

seriously weather man, can a girl get a sunny day

Mallory and Kathryn said...

Love the look! I love that dress, and I love that you got it from TJMaxx. Great finds are the best!

Kristin said...

chaoskontrolowany said...

Ebony said...

I love the yellow blazer in the last picture. It'd be such a great piece to brighten my day when it gets dark at 4 and it's cold outside.

Isabel said...

Lorena said...

I am watching everyone pull out there tights while sit in hot weather...
You can take your tight and organize them in a hanger, it works.

Melanie said...

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!
