Scarf swap and purple tights!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I don't know about you, but...the weekend just cannot get here quickly enough. It has been so cold and icky and drizzly out that all I want to do is curl up in bed with a good book!

I wanted to give a shout-out to Ashley from Joshley and the Charles. She was my partner in Katie's Scarf Swap...and look what she sent me! Such a fun, festive, autumn scarf. And so pretty, too! Please pardon the from-the-neck-down photo...I wasn't feeling so beautiful when I had this photo taken! Thanks so much for the scarf, Ashley!


Today may have been an icky, cold, rainy day, but I managed to perk myself up with some new purple tights. I wore them today with a tan corduroy skirt and a grey sweater. I LOVED my outfit today and felt so...fun! A few of you requested a photo of the purple tights, so...here they are.
Hmmm. Oscar seemed to want to get in on the purple tights action. Let's try that again...
What do you think? Are colored tights a yay or a nay in your book? I have to say that they really perked me up on this dreary day.

Have I mentioned before that my new MacBook Pro has a camera? I've had a few photo shoots with Oscar...he LOVES getting his picture taken. See?


Anyway, that's all for today! So glad you enjoyed the first edition of my (fantasy) Christmas list. Stay tuned for Part Two of my "Things you can wear" edition!

I have those shoes (or at least a pair that looks just like them) in a burgandy color! I love them!

I am love, love, loving those purple tights. Way to rock it! I wish I could pull off a pair.

What a fun scarf too!

I heart those tights. But, I always find myself buying fun pieces like that and never wearing them. I need to take a hint from you and just do it! Also, I don't really wear (or own) very many skirts so I might have a problem there. I love the shoes, too. Ahh they are so cute!

I am so jealous seeing everyone's scarf swap scarves. I wanted in on that but it was only for the US. I LOVE LOVE LOVE scarves. I think I had close to 20 on my last count. They help me survive winter. There's nothing I love better than wearing an all black outfit (or at least black turtleneck with dark wash denim) and a bright coloured scarf and earrings. That's my winter style.

I want to go shopping with you.

I don't own any tights...but I really think they are super cute. Perhaps an addition to the wardrobe is necessary :)
