Purple tights

I had actually forgotten how uncomfortable pantyhose are.  Hadn't worn them in awhile.  I've been spoiled by cotton leggings.  
I felt like I was slowly being strangled all day long.  Not good.
Please don't mind the dirty boots, or the stuff on the floor that was "un-crop-able".  (Doesn't Scott realize that I can't be a serious blogger until he picks his chargers up off the floor?  I could've scanned the background first, I suppose.)

Boot socks: Gift // Boots: Steve Madden

Also linking up to WIWW and Random Wednesday

I've been mixing patterns like ca-razy lately.  I don't give it a second thought anymore, but I'm guessing others might think it's odd.

It was cold and wet and snowy (i.e. gross) outside. This is, in all honesty, why I bought the giant mirror.  It makes the dining room look bigger too.

Oh, I'm the mystery host this week for Wednesday Walkabout!  I love this link-up because it's so low-maintenance, I've made a lot of friends through it, and it's hosted by military wives.  (Nice, friendly military wives, not high-maintenance ones).

What is a Walkabout? It's a blog link-up party, every week here and with our co-hosts! Simply put your blog address or a specific post in the linky, visit some other people, and make some friends. Easy at that! I can't wait to talk to everyone!
PS: You only have to link up with ONE of the co-hosts!

  1. following you from the hop! hope you will return the favor..

  2. I hate to admit it but I am going to be in your cold state next week. You might wonder why someone would visit in the dead if winter. I'm blaming the best friend for getting married. Shame on them for not choosing July to get married. Cold, wet, miserable, unbearable. I'll make the best of it with multiple layers. Esther Norine Designs

  3. I have purple tights too and love them! :)

  4. I LOVE this outfit! :)) as always, adorable!

  5. Pattern mixing is awesome. I wish I didn't suck at it.

  6. I think this outfit is adorable!! I really like dresses/tights. I only have a black pair though...I should invest in some fun colors for next year.

  7. Thanks for joining the hop! I love that outfit, I could even wear it.

  8. I love the colored tights! I'm with you though, I can't handle pantyhose for more than a few hours. Why can't they make them with a nice wide waistband that doesn't make you feel like your waist circulation is being cut off?!

    Mixing patterns = win. Always.

  9. This outfit is one of my favorites that I have seen you post! Love the purple tights. :)

  10. I really like your purple tights. I hate wearing tights and try to avoid doing so at all costs. The last time I wore tights was to Katharine's wedding. I found a new use for them though! You put them on your brush to make cleaning it easier. After you've brushed to your life's content, you simply remove the piece of pantyhose and throw it out. Then put on a new one! It is awesome because my brush is always full of hair and hard to clean.

  11. Where or where do I get those cute boot socks???? I need some BAD. I love the tights with the socks with the boots. CUTE!

  12. Love the outfit, as always! I'm totally having issues with tights lately. They curl at the top, and they are just awful. Leggings, anyone??

  13. Yay! Thanks for being our co-host this week. I love the tights!

  14. I used to have purple tights just like those! I loved them!! That is, until they got a rip in them. Maybe this means that I should switch to some purple leggings instead. I hate that it seems like a mission impossible moment to put on your tights each time you want to wear them. I usually let out a little success cheer when I put them on with no runs.
