Black Trench: Body by Victoria.  Boots: Chadwicks.  Earrings: Lia Sophia.

I gave up on bare legs today and strapped on some nylons.  I was at Kohl’s over the weekend, and bought a couple of cute new tights as well, so will hopefully be showing those off soon too.

It was actually so chilly this morning that I considered wearing one of my winter coats…… however, I would have looked pretty silly on my way home when it was back to the 60’s.  Good thing I stuck with the trench!

You should take your friend, Kasmira's advice and steer clear of the "unfashionable sheer hosiery" aka "nylons".

Too cute! Another blogger got me turned on to thigh highs instead of hose, way more comfortable, Ill never go back unless its just way too cold! It was chilly here today too, I miss summer already.

Anon -

I agree with the sheer hosiery comment when it comes to orange-y looking “fake tan” nylons, but politely and completely disagree when it comes to sexy sheer black stockings.

It’s not necessary to follow a 5-minute trend in every outfit, but is more important to exude an overall sense of style.


Kerri - maybe I'll try some soon! thanks for the tip ;)

Cristina & Bianca - thanks!

Those boots make me inappropriately attracted to you, and I'm a happily married woman!

I love the stockings! I think it's the best part of the outfit! It pulls together the whole outfit and give you a sleek look.

FYI - I just read Kasmira's post on tights & stockings and it says nothing about not wearing nylons -- she's actually wearing some in the post!

I think you look fabulous.
