Fall floral

I like fall florals, so I chose this blazer from OASAP. Once again I didn't manage to get the sizing right, and it's a bit big, so I paired it with this oversized shift dress - do two larges make a small?

We've really reached the point where bare legs are no longer acceptable. As much as I wish it weren't true, it's mid November here in Connecticut, weather reports are already starting to predict snow and I need to get out the tights.

I have a question for you: what is the current feeling on nude tights? Fashionable or faux pas? How about nude fishnets? Better or trashier? Should I just play it safe and stick with black?

  1. What a fun blazer for fall! Nude tights are classic and never go out of style. Nude fishnets might just create weird patterns on your legs!

  2. What a gorgeous blazer, you look gorgeous.


  3. What a fun floral blazer! I too have recently gotten a fall floral item. Such a classic style

  4. Now if you ask Kate Middleton about nude tights or in her case "pantyhose" she'll tell you heck yea! Maybe not in those words exactly. For me, nude tights are a no no. I mean really who do they work for other than Kate or Beyonce on stage in her nude fishnets. My opinion of course.

    I do love that blazer it looks great with the shift dress. You may be able to do sheer black tights with this outfit but the bare legs are my top choice. :)

  5. Oooh! I love the print of that blazer!!!
    And Kate Middleton wears nude tights, so I think they're okay ;) Not sure I would do fishnets. But I'll probably stick to black, navy, maroon and my mauve pair, ha ha. Although in Spring I might break out nude (I did for Easter last year)

  6. I probably wouldn't do nude fishnets, but pantyhose would be okay. My guess is that you would make the nude fishnets work though! Great blazer too!

  7. Oooh, what a great blazer! I usually stick with black tights myself but I think nude is acceptable...I'd steer clear of the nude fishnets though.

  8. Love this blazer :) Florals are perfect for all year around!

  9. What a pretty floral print! I think nude tights are fine, but I think the fishnets would be a bit much. I personally wear a lot black tights in the winter.

  10. I've wondered the same thing with nude tights--I heard they were out, but what happens when you are tired of looking like you're wearing tights?!

    I love this look Lydia! I think the new blazer is great!

  11. Don't know if two larges make a small but you've managed to make them work so perfectly together! I'm with you on the fall florals, they are so cute and that blazer is no exception! About the nude tights, I used to be against them but last year my sister bought the cutest ones, they are kind of sparkly and very light and they actually look super nice, so that totally made me change my mind!

  12. I prefer not to wear nude tights, but a lot of my friends do and as long as they're not too orange-y I think they're perfectly all right ^^ Besides, they make it easy to wear your summer dresses a little longer without feeling to much of the cold :)

    I'm loving your outfit today! A floral blazer must be fun to have to combine with plain dresses / tops. I wish I was brave enough to wear patterned jackets, but I'm afraid that they won't work well with what's already in my closet :) xo

  13. I think it totally works.... the jacket is really pretty.
    I just heard on the news that its snowing in NYC so it means it's not getting any better for you.
    In regards to the tights, i'd go with the black.

  14. This look is gorgeous! I love how delicate the pieces are. Florals in the fall are awesome. Just adding some brightness to an otherwise gloomy day!

  15. What a fantastic blazer for autumn:) I love the shape of it and I adore your rolled up sleeves:) Kisses, darling.

  16. love your outfit, I wish it would get cooler here in Phoenix. I love black tights I think there so classic,


  17. i love this floral blazer! i actually just ordered it too. :)

    and as for nude tights, i generally prefer something like a sheer black or brown instead. nude kinda weirds me out, but maybe it's just me?

    cute & little

  18. That jacket is everything. Love the pattern and the structure!


  19. I don't know what the trend is, but if you want to wear something and it makes you happy, wear it!

  20. Love the blazer!! I have the same shoes :)

  21. Love this outfit. It's spring colors but perfect fall look. And that blazer is so great! - Katy

  22. I don't know if two larges make a small, per se, but this shift and blazer do work wonderfully together. And as for tights, I'm all for nude ones... maybe it's just all the time I've lived in Europe that influences my habits, but I really only ever go fully barelegged in June, July and August. Otherwise, it's always nude tights. They do provide a bit of warmth and with the right pair, they can look relatively natural.

  23. This look is gorgeous, I love the blazer!!


  24. That blazer is gorgeous and I love your tassel necklace! Great look!

  25. You have paired your new blazer so chic. I like this soft and feminine look. I think nude tights are as great as black. If it works for you then why not.

  26. It flurried on my way to school. I think I read that celebrities when nude fishnets when performing to make their legs look flawless.

  27. You know, I love the idea of nude tights (nylons?), but I've never found a pair that didn't just scream early-90s to me. I feel like Kate Middleton needs to give up her sources because she's the only person I've ever felt has been able to pull it off!

    Though if you find some nice ones, please let me know!!

  28. good for you still toughing it out tightless :) i can't handle that myself once the temperature falls below 60.
    that jacket looks like a good fit to me! i like that it's a little bit slouchy :)

  29. Gorgeous blazer, I think fishnets are fine as long as they aren't paired with a mini skirt and platform heels ;)

  30. two larges do make a small! i think you look lovely, and the necklace helps to slim the whole look and show your hot bod!

  31. Hi,

    Autumn's styles are so fresh and the season’s colors are bright and comforting. It is such an enjoyable season, so why not surround yourself with the colors and spirit of fall. Are you searching for the Pretty Polly Tights
    then, please visit to us?

  32. When it's cold, bare legs are not an option. Some outfits just suit the look of a bare leg better So, nude tights are sometimes the better choice. Nobody seems to have anything against them where I'm from :)

  33. Nude as in sheer? Or opaque like the generic color "nude"? I don't know if I'd be game for either of those options. Nude fishnets sound fun, though.
    LOVE the print on the blazer.

  34. I LOVE the floral blazer! I wanted to get one during the spring but never did. I think it looks great with the shift dress - I wouldn't have guessed it's too big! And I don't care what anyone else says - I love sheer nude tights! I wear them all the time when the weather gets cooler. Heck, sometimes I even wear them in the summer! If you find the right shade I think they even out skin tone and just make my legs feel tighter and more firm. I love it! So wear those nude tights! I would even wear nude fishnets if I was going for more texture in an outfit.

  35. holy cow, I'm beyond obsessed with this. The print is gorg. You look fabulous, love. If you get a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest outfit courtesy of Lauren Conrad. :) xo

  37. I love the softenss of the dress with the floral jacket, wowwwwww you
    knocks my socks everytime, dear Lydia.

  38. That dress is lovely, such a nice piece! And the blazer has a cute print.

  39. Lyddie - that blazer is amazing! I went to check out other options - and man am I tempted. But, I shall do my best to resist.
    I love the dress as well and the fact that you say the sizing it too big, its not noticeable at all.

  40. I love your style, it's very chic and sophisticated. :) I really live the gold circle bracelet as well.

    xo, Sarah
    Hustla, baby.

  41. I love this on you. Something about that pretty silky slip dress with the blazer is perfect. You look so pretty :)
