Drawing Near

Moving day is drawing near & I am going to have to start packing away my clothes. I've packed one suitcase with things I know I will not need from now until after we move, but I have been hesitant to pack the rest! This may be the last outfit post until next week - we'll see! I'll try to squeeze one more in before I pack everything away! 




I realized recently after looking through my outfit posts the last little while that I wear black tights almost every day. When I try to incorporate color, it means wearing a colorful dress with black tights & usually a black cardigan or jacket. That has become my routine! And while I do plan on changing that (hey look! I wore purple tights for this post instead!) I do have a reason - my black tights are lined with FLEECE. They have made it nearly impossible to wear regular tights. I wore regular tights on Saturday night, only to arrive home after a 15 minute walk with bright red legs stinging from the cold. I am forever converted! 

It feels weird to talk about my fleece lined tights in a post where I'm not wearing them. But I am wearing them here & here & here & here! I have two pairs: one is plush brand from Shopbop, and the other is unfortunately a discontinued line I got at winners called Luxe Via Spiga!




So the rest of my week is filled with packing & cleaning & putting my life into boxes! The movers are booked for Monday & then we are on our way! So exciting. This isn't my last post though, you'll be hearing from me again before the big move! 

Happy Wednesday, lovelies! xo.

  10. Do they make fleece-lined colored tights???

    Love the purple ones, but I can see why you stick to the black!

  11. I don't own any fleece-lined tights but they sound perfect for freezing weather. Next time I visit friends back east I'll definitely pick up a pair. I love your purple tights though, they look perfect with that dress. Good luck with the move, Kate!

  12. I want to moooove! I'm wearing colorful tights today, too. I've been living in black and grey tights all winter. I'm so glad to be able to change it up!

  13. Good luck with the move! I hate moving! lol. It will be over before you know it though! i love that colour of tights - however I bought a green pair at Joe and they ripped like the 2nd time I wore them! So frustrating! I can still wear them but the rip is sort of noticeable so I can't pull them up too high. Sigh

  14. Your tights are LINED WITH FLEECE??? That's so cool! Too bad they're discontinued : ( I love your skirt, you look very pretty.

    I wanted to let you know I finally thanked you for the prize I won on your giveaway on my blog today and I apologize for it taking so long.

  17. That dress is so adorable but then in the last photo when I could really see it's detail from the sleeve poking out...then I was in love! I too have lined tights and have fallen into the all black, colored dress pattern but I don't forsee falling out of it until it gets warmer. And it just dumped 12" of snow here so not for awhile :) At least you're not in all black everyday!

  18. Oooh the purple really adds a POP - love it!
    Maybe if I had fleece lined tights I'd wear skirts/dresses more in the winter. I'm just too chicken lately!
    Good luck with the move!

  19. Good luck with your move Kate. These are exciting times!! Whatever you do keep those fleece lined tights at the ready. I think I saw a tweet about those the other day and almost passed out at the mere idea. A genius came up with that one!!

    And for the record - in case I've not said it 50x already. You look great in prints. Floral prints!

    xo,
