bye bye, bare legs

 Sometimes if you pout really hard, the sun sets into a pretty gold state and your photos come out better. Who knew?

One of my favorite things about fall is wearing summer dresses with tights and scarves. It's a pretty fail-proof recipe for a great outfit. I'm hunting for more whimsical little dresses I can pair with tights through the rest of the season. Upon making this outfit, I realized that I need to completely overhaul my tights collection. So many rips and snags! I really liking sheer and patterned tights this year, where as I've pretty exclusively worn opaque tights the past few years. Where are your favorite places to get them? I usually just go to Target, but I'm sure there are more interesting selections elsewhere. Let me know so I can have awesome legs like the rest of y'all!

  1. I love wearing summer dresses with tights, too! I've been wearing one of my favorite summer skirts a lot this fall and it's been great! I swear by the Nordstrom brand tights. I still end up buying quite a few pairs every year, but I'm also surprisingly rough on tights. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong! Haha!

  2. I'm obsessed with tights. My go to places are Macy's and Forever21. I think all my tights are from those two places. I'll have to check out Target.

  3. I'm a sucker for opaque and patterned tights. I've bought a couple pairs from Old Navy this year, there are so many colors and textures to choose from!

  5. So cute! TJMaxx/Marshalls has great tights! I just got some dotted sheer black ones and some pin striped sheer brown and cream ones! :) What I find myself really loving is faux leather tights.. which is crazy and unexpected... but now an obsession! Stop by and check out my very first fashion post including them on my blog. :) -Alexandra Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things

  7. Target is usually my go-to as well. I was liking Hugh brand tights, but I totally bought a pair and wore them three times this season and they already have a hole in them. Womp womp. Having to replace my tights every season is one of the things I hate most about them. They aren't that cheap, and they just don't seem to last that long. Then again, I tend to wear my opaque black tights a lot, so I can't complain too much.

  9. I feel like I've been missing a lot in the blog world, but I'm happy to see that you're stillll the cutest! I buy all my tights from marshalls/TJ. Every so often I get a wonky pair, but 9/10 I get a solid buy. Great prices and fun styles to try out!

  11. Nicole, you are so damn cute. Love those long legs, and I'm obsessed with your new haircut! I always just go to Target or JCPenney for my tights - regardless of how expensive they are, tights never last me super long, so I'd rather just pay for a $8 pair instead of a $20 pair. I do, however, have a few pairs of Target tights that are like 3 years old - not bad!!
