I wasn't going to blog this outfit.

I was in the middle of a case of severe plague when these photos were taken and felt horrendous. As such, my motivation when selecting an outfit that morning was not "OMG, what can I pick that will look amazing?!" It was "hgggnnnnnrggghhh, need clothes that are clean and not pyjamas."

I was quite surprised when I dragged myself into work and got loads of compliments on my tights/shoes/frock/combo. Now I don't know if this is because it's actually that good or because some of the people there find the idea of patterned tights and polka dot shoes very lively indeed and were accordingly admiring of them. Probably the latter. It doesn't strike me as a massively exciting outfit, although I am fond of it.

What do you reckon?

    1. Ack, too many wonderfuls. I was clearly excited.

  2. I'm impressed with the tights - I had a pair of these but they had to be binned after one wear. :( I am a tights-destroyer.

  3. love the pattern combinations and those shoes look comfy and not too narrow. I need to invest in some jazzy tights for the winter xx

  4. It doesn't have to be exciting to be awesome, love the whole outfit, has a happy, jaunty thing going on which is awesome. Admiring your plague riddled ability to still look like a human being.

  5. It's a lovely combination! Nice that all the patterns are different yet go!x

  6. Love this outfit, jaunty is definitely the word! I am in awe of your non-laddering skills too, I am a tights destroyer like Char!

  8. I love my house tights too. Much prefer my nude to the black (which I also have).
