I took these pictures a week ago when the weather became mild enough to go without tights. That is a distant memory now with the crazy storm we are currently facing, but if you remember, we had a weekend, I think a week ago, when the chill in the air kind of disappeared. Well, I made the most of the lovely mild weather, went out and about in SANDALS, without TIGHTS, and took some blog photos. It felt so good. it was the best thing ever. I have a love and hate relationship with tights as some of you may know. Sometimes, I love them, sometimes I do not, but overall, I wish I could walk around showing off my bare legs, wearing a skirt or dress in the heart of winter.
I do find the normal plain tights boring, so I look out for pattern designs, to add a bit of fun to my look, when I do have to have them on, and with the horrible weather conditions we have going on in the UK at the moment, I am going to be needing pairs of tights for a bit longer, but for this outfit post, I get to show off my legs.
In other news, I have fallen in love with the poncho trend this season, so you will be seeing quite a bit of ponchos in the next couple of outfit posts. I find them so stylish and chic. It is a cleaver way of looking bang on trend and staying warm, and this piece does just that.
I also adore the leopard print, it is so pretty, it would look amazing on anything, a pair of jeans, leggings, jeggings, skirt or dress like I styled it here. It also feels soft to touch. I love this new wardrobe addition a lot, can you tell?
What do you think of this look?
