Shoulda

So….I definitely should have worn tights today. It was much cooler and breezier than I expected.

I did have the good sense to don pettipants. Otherwise, I would have displayed my goods to the people of Cincinnati more than once this afternoon. I was also fortunate to have left my leather jacket at work yesterday. It blocks the cold wind like a champ.


Jacket, Laundry by Shelli Segal. Vest, Urban Vibe. Dress, Tucker for Target. Bracelets, Claire's and vintage. Sunglasses, Xhilaration. Shoes, American Eagle for Payless.



Yeah...I didn't want to take the jacket off.

Love the layering! And it would look cute with tights but even though you were cold it's super cute as-is!

I always pick the worst days to wear (or not to wear) tights! All hail to the leather jacket you just happened to have around that just happened to perfectly complement your outfit.

Sometimes I'm the opposite and I wished I hadn't worn tights. But there are times when I run out without them and regret it just the same. I love how you layered the Tucker dress! I have been thinking of how I'm going to remix it and this outfit is giving me some ideas.

At least the rain stopped for a bit.
Layering the vest over that dress is a wonderful idea. It looks great.
I love those super cute wedges too.

Really love that vest. The jacket did turn out to be a little bit of happy accident, but it looks great with that dress.

I just wish I had weather where I was lamenting wearing or not wearing tights....I love these bright colors with the denim and jacket!

Pettipants - how quaint!

I liked this outfit at first glance, but I loved it after I saw the dark denim motorcyle vest underneath. Its edginess is a wonderful contrast to the dress's girly print, reminding me of that trend from the early 1990s. Rock on!

What in the world are pettipants?

Pettipants are like a cross between a slip and boxer shorts.

I like the colours in this a lot - that olive green jacket is lovely!

Really digging that vest over the dress, and that leather jacket is such a great colour. I am so thankful for mine in this windy-wet weather we've been having.

TsunamiJane said...

ah! I understand pettipants now. Myself, I bought a cheap pair of leggings shorts to wear under my skirt if I'm not wearing hose. Still need a slip though!
