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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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!

  10. 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

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

  15. 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.

  23. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  25. 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 :)

  26. 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!

  29. 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 :)

  31. 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 ;)

  32. 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.

  43. 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!

  44. I must say the outfit looks quite darling! =)

  45. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  46. 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 ;)

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