Horsing around

Cutoffs over tights is something I've seen quite a bit amongst the other style bloggers, and it's something I would not have considered for myself had everyone else not looked so darn cute in them.

But I think this will be a one time only thing. I like my tights with my roomy tweed shorts, but the pairing with the tight denim, it just isn't me. Now I know - leave the cutoffs and tights to the gals with the toothpick thighs.

One thing I do love about this look - the messy side bun. How have I never worn my hair like this before? It's so perfect, much cuter than the side pony, and much faster than the side braid.

As usual I completely forgot about Everybody Everywear, so I don't have on any brightly colored tights. Just brown. But brown is a color, and it's the best I've got because I've not really been wearing tights. Of course if you are looking for some bright tight inspiration, you can always check out what I wore last winter.

It's not my thing but it looks cute on you. I prefer tweed shorts for myself as well.

Mm, tights under shorts has always been one of those things I’ve associated with my younger fluro tights & shorts days (don’t judge me ) but I have seen them look really cute on other people.
I think it looks good on you, but I think the trick is to have really loose-looking cutoffs for the perfect undone, messy, carefree kinda look. You’re certainly not too big to wear them, you have good legs.
& I love the messy side bun. Ima have to try it out.

Courtney Erin said...

I think you can totally pull off the shorts and tights! But it's all about personal comfort so...but they also look so cute with that horse print top.

I knew about this round of EBEW, but as usual, forgot about it. Oh well.

I really like the shorts + tights look... on everyone else. I don't even own shorts! I like your version of that style, especially with the horse blouse!

Marie said...

I like this look on you and I am loving the sexy messy side bun!;D

I love your hair to the side in a "messy" bun. It looks sweet on you. You look nice Lyddie, but if you don't particularly care for it at least you tried it. That's what I like about you. You give everything a chance. :D

I think this is one of my favorite outfits of yours! Every time you wear that horse print blouse, it makes me wish I had bought one for myself!

Alex Elizabeth said...

Love this styling of the horse blouse! The side bun is great, too. And the leaves look super nice... are they real?

Frannie Pantz said...

I have also wanted to try the tights/shorts trend, but every time that I put them on with shorter shorts, they look off to me. But, when I see them on others, it looks fab. I don't get it. You look great in these and I am a fan of the horse blouse.

What a great print on your top!

I wore cutoff and tights way back in college in the 90s so this is definitely one trend I will be sitting out!

TaraMixandMatch said...

Great fall look...I have yet to try tights with shorts, but think I might need to...loving the horse print!

Style Journey said...

I think you are rocking the shorts and tights. But...I know what you mean. I would love to try it, but it reminds me of when I was in junior high school (that was hot back then). The horse shirt is so cool and I love the messy bun :)

Elle Sees said...

Just the cutest top!

Ali said...

Whenever I wear tights with shorts, I look like a hobo. But you look so cuuuuute. I love your neutral fall-y color palette. You and your outfit color making is so amazing. PLus, the print of your shirt is uber cute! * 3* stay lovely Miss Lyddie!

I so love this blouse!

And what for shorts+tights...I love this combo. Wearing it a lot! Although I must admit - I'm not a master of puting together tights with denim shorts, any other is fine :)

Katya said...

I think you totally pull this look off - but it's whether you're comfortable yourself that matters!

PS. Definitely do your hair like that more often, it looks ah-mazing ;)

Ha ha, girls with the toothpick thighs?!?! I think you look great! and the messy side bun is an added bonus. I have always been a fan but it looks better on people with straight hair and looks really good on you with that hat.
Cheers,

The cutoffs and tights look cute on you, but tights look great with wool shorts too.

Sadly I am too old for the tights and cut-offs look. So, when my young friends wear this, it makes me so happy. I adore this look. Happy to see your horse-y shirt getting lots of wear. You are the best remixer!

Shey said...

I must say the outfit looks quite darling! =)

TrophyBoutique said...

Even though I think this looks cute and would never have thought you seem uncomfortable, I totally feel you on the tights with cutoffs thing. SO bunchy and in need of constant adjustment and tugging...not worth it to me, either. I have to wear baggy shorts with tights only.

Meredith said...

the shorts & tights on you look great! I have a similar body type and haven't always felt comfortable wearing shorts - let alone shorts & tights! saw your post this morning, though, and am wearing the combo out for drinks tonight ;)

Meagan said...

Love, love, love this! I'm dying over your horse blouse and your big, brown bag is fabulous too!
