Socks and Tights

Socks and tights, knee highs and tights, tights and tights...  Colorado has turned to its appropriately freezing temperatures for December, so if I want to continue to wear my favorite dresses, I have to master the art of layering leg-wear.  In these pictures I chose one of my favorite combos, tights (they're the same color as my skin, you can't see em'!) and above the knee socks.  Just wait til you see the tights on tights combo I came up with for later this week!

Outfit Details:
Blouse:  Vintage- for sale in the shop!
Shoes: Vintage/ thrifted
Skirt & Jacket: thrifted
Knee Socks: Target
Collar Necklace: Romwe
     In other important news besides the ever-important discussion of my socks and the weather, I am getting prettttty excited about my upcoming vacation.  Coming into work this morning wasn't even that terrible for a Monday.  It seems everything in my daily life becomes more manageable when there is something I am really looking forward to looming on the near horizon.  R and I were daydreaming about the trip on the way into work this morning and it is actually funny what one of the top thing we are looking forward to is: drinking Kona coffee outside on the porch in the mornings.  There is just something so amazing about just sitting, taking in the scenery and warm air.  Usually coffee is used as an aid to wake me up in the mornings, to reduce stress, and to get me through a work day.  It is a rare occasion when I can just sit and enjoy a cup for what it is!  That and the fact that Kona coffee is one of my favorite coffees in the world!
    I have an exciting giveaway coming up a little later this week, so make sure to check back!  And even though its Monday, just remember the holidays are quick approaching and good times are ahead!

  8. You're so right about the days being more bare able when you're looking forward to something! I'm taking a whole week off of work for christmas, and it starts in about a week! I'm so excited and I even feel less tired at work and afterward!

    On a sartorial note, I love this skirt so much.

  9. You can't even tell you're wearing tights! I am definitely going to have to start layering like this, it's getting far too cold for my liking. Adorable as always, Hannah. I love the print on this top! Also Kona coffee...mmmm....

  11. Cute, cute, cute Hannah! I have been all about the socks and tights together too - I guess that's the good thing about cold weather. I got your package when I arrived home Saturday night and I was jumping for joy when I saw it was from you :) The owl was darling and holy goodness, so was the dress! You nailed me perfectly. Anyways enough ramble, just wanted to say a big thank you and that I cannot wait to style it up. Of course I love your outfit here as always. You have such a knack for finding gorgeous vintage pieces.

  16. What a pretty outfit, you are the master of layering! I can't wait for vacation time to simply sit out on the porch enjoying a cup of coffee, but hopefully somewhere warm and sunny!

  18. I feel like you’re ALWAYS going on some vacation or other, take me with you! Haha and I’m very much looking forward to seeing this tights on tights combo you speak of. I always loved knee-highs but they look weird on my legs- I’ll just have to vicariously live through you.

    And in response to your last comment: Me and Marc actually started living together two months into us dating haha, we move faaaast. The pinteresty apartment is going to be our second one, and we’re moving from Chicago to Seattle. Which means I’ll be closer to YOU! Well, still far but closer haha. I’ll work my way down to CO ;)

  20. I'm SO jealous of your vacation! I LOVE hawaii. It feels like a home away from home to me! I've never actually tried Kona coffee thought, but I've only heard good things!
    I love the knee highs and your pretty top! Your coat is super cute too!
