My Life, Styled // Pattern Play 2.0

If there is one fool proof wardrobe combination this time of year, it has to be the tights-boots-high-waisted skirt combo.  You can pretty much put anything on top of that combination– t-shirt, sweater, silky top or button up– and it totally works.  In the past I have always been a Wolford Matte Opaque kind of gal when it comes to black tights, but these Nononsense seamless ones are growing on me.  I think it’s kind of cool that they’re a little bit sheer, too.  I’m on set today for the first of a four day …
