Not Quite Tights Weather

Tuesday, January 12, 2010
A girl on campus told me today that she liked my tights. But she kind of had a smirk so I'm not sure if she was saying it mockingly or as a compliment... Oh, well... at least like them!

If you're thinking I look tired, I am. If not, thanks ;). It doesn't help when you've slept in all winter break and then have to wake up early all of a sudden. Ummm...what?!? I'd like to go to bed now but I still have homework, blogging/commenting, running, and cleaning to do! Sorry this has to be a short one...

That car looks like it's going to wreck me!

Wearing secondhand Kenneth Cole Reaction coat ($60), leopard print scarf ($7), Gap sweatshirt ($11), Gap t-shirt dress ($8), Target lace tights (gift from my SIL), and MIA brogues ($43).

P.S. I tied my scarf Orchid Grey style! If you want to learn, she made a vlog here. It's easy!!!
P.P.S. Thank you to Nathalie of accessory pirate, beautifulnemo of *Kirei girl da Madrid, and B a la Moda for the blog awards!

  6. I love your tights Elaine!
    The girl probably said it with a smirk because she wished she had them.
    also, love the leopard/lace/comfy sweater combo, you pull it off!

  13. Those tights look fantastic on you! I love how you paired a more casual top with them....it works so well!

  14. i hate people who do that--give you a compliment but leave you not knowing whether it was genuine or not! it reminds me of the movie, "mean girls"! ugh!! but i really do like them on you! :D they give the simple outfit of just a skirt and top so much more interest!

  25. Kudos for rocking tights no matter what the weather. I think you look too cute!

    I started back to school too, and I am beat already. I don't like this whole getting up early thing either.

    ReplyDelete

  28. i love the baggy sweatshirt. it looks sooooo cozy! and orchid grey's video was so helpful!

    ReplyDelete
  29. the scarf looks great! i love how you paired really gorgeous tights with a slouchy sweatshirt (i'm sure that girl just always looks like she's smirking haha)
    when school starts for me i'm sure i'll look tired all the time too :)

  30. I love the dressed up sweatshirt, you pull it off so well!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love this outfit. You look so comfy but yet totally put together and cute (as usual). And every time you wear that scarf I make a mental note that I need to find one because it's amazing.

    Hope you are having a great start to your semester!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oooh, I'll have to figure out that scarf-tie. Love how it looks!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I don't think she could possibly be smirking at that outfit - it looks great. I like how the tights and scarf add a subtle 'allure' to a casual outfit, really pulls it all together.

  37. Lace tights and a sweatshirt? I love it.

    Maybe that girl was sincere, but just has a weird face. I'm like that. Maybe I don't mean weird face... weird facial expressions. I feel sometimes like people smile at me and I smile too late or just a little off. lol

  38. Your tights are adorable and I sincerely mean that, sweetie! If that girl was smirking it was because she was hiding jealousy. Lol.
    I also love your scarf. So freaking cute!! xoxo

  39. I was going to say "you look cold, go back inside"!

  40. Love the scarf... I am going to see how you tied it!

  43. Is it really that warm over there that you can last more than a second w/o a coat? Lucky!
    I love those tights. If she didn't, she's crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  44. i like ur tights too - and this is a genuine compliment :)

    also - i love the gap

    ReplyDelete
  45. I can't think what would be wrong with your tights, surely it was a compliment?
    I love this outfit anyway. The oversized sweater reminds me of Flashdance! (totally a good thing!)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Isn't getting back into the routine of getting up early the worst!! These last two weeks have been awful!

    And I totally dig your tights, by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love those tights. and if that girl was being sarcastic, then she's and idiot. They're great. so is the scarf!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love your tights and scarf. Lace and leopard prints are two of my favorite things!

    ReplyDelete
  49. This is so cool! I love that it's so laid back but funky and stylish, too!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ohh, I love the scarf!

    Also, I'm hosting a little give away, I would love it if you would check it out.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh such a cute leopard scarf, I'm in love with all things leopard at the moment:P

    And I wish I could see the tights detail more clearly!

    You don't look tired at all, so you're welcome:)

  52. If it's any consolation, I'm tired too. I'm still not quite back on eastern time or ready for my teaching schedule.

    I think those tights are fantastic, and I love that you combined lace with leopard print!

    ReplyDelete
  53. This combo is fantastic because it features so much that I normally would never wear: lace tights and leopard print for the "tarty" connotations and gray sweatshirt for the "slobby" connotation. Yet you make it all look chic and perfect. I'm so impressed and am taking notes :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Those are great tights (no smirk here!)...
    I do recommend wool-blend tights for cool weather—they have saved me in Chicago so far.

    ReplyDelete
  55. i need a sweater like that! Plus, that scarf is amazing!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I own those same tights, and I love them too! :) So that smirking girl had better have liked them! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  59. I adore this look! The scarf in without a doubt my favorite part. So stinkin' cute I can hardly stand it!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I hate it when I can't tell if people are paying me a compliment or are actually just mocking me. But trust me, the tights are awesome!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Can't stop drooling over that fabulous scarf!
