Why is it Hat Day? No real reason. Our office declared it Hat Day and therefore, here I am in a hat at work. The rest of my outfit is simple, so it doesn’t compete with the hat. (I had a scarf on at the start of the day but as soon as I saw how it looked in the photos I took it off. Too much going on around the neck and face with both a hat AND a scarf…)
What I’m Wearing, Day 21:
- Self-Stitched Skirt: The ‘Armani Skirt,’ McCalls 5803
- Blazer: Zara – it’s a knit fabric, how cool is that? Though, I’ve had it drycleaned and it’s starting to lose its shape a little around the lapels.
- Tights: Gap, purchased last fall
- Shoes: Nine West, bought at Macy’s in January 2008
It’s offically Fall, because hockey season has started. And tights are in stores, so it’s time to do a little seasonal shopping! I don’t shop much anymore, mostly because it’s more fun to sew! The fit is better, the quality is nicer than I could afford, and plus, then I have new things to write about!
However, tights are a necessary purchase. Today’s pair is my favourite, because they’re thick and opaque, and feel strong and snag-proof. And while I have never purchased leggings and would never wear them purposefully.. they would totally work as pseudo-tights, with socks. I suppose I could even make leggings!
Out of curiosity – where do you usually shop for tights? Any awesome sources I should know about?
