Always the hillbilly

Sweater: Target // Skirt: LOFT // Jeggings/Boots: JCP // Scarf: gift 

I wore "denim" tights with a black pencil skirt.  I am a hillbilly.

Black pencil skirts are meant for nylons, real tights, and/or some high heels.

The reason I didn't wear my black leggings is because I don't like them.  I really like my brown ones.  But brown leggings with a black skirt?  I could practically see my mother cringing.

I bought the skirt in August.  This was the first time I've worn it...simply because I didn't know what to wear under it (my problems, they are many).

Oh, I don't like my black boots either.  Real shoes are out of the question, as you can tell by (very closely) examining that picture up there.

The story of the earrings.

I told Scott I wanted some more Tiffany.  He laughed.  Hmmm...I wasn't trying to be funny.

  6. I have the exact same problem with skirts and dresses...figuring out what to wear under them. Because God forbid Sitka ever be warm enough to have bare legs.

  9. I love that skirt. It matters not that you had those leggings on with a black skirt. You are still the best dressed woman in all of Alaska.

  20. I have a similar type of black pencil skirt--to me, that skirt screams to be worn with fuchsia or turquoise or purple or otherwise bright tights. But that's just the kind of hairpin I am. I think the denim ones look great with it, too!
