Plaid, Lace and Leopard

 I think these photos pretty much confirm the reason that I am feeling so terrible right now. And the thing is, that even though I know this, I wouldn't have worn this outfit any other way!
It just wouldn't have been the same with tights on. I'm going to have to switch into winter mode sooner or later, but I just love bare legs so much. And once I put the tights on, there's no turning back for like seven months! I can't bear the thought of it. So, for vanity's sake, I have condemned myself to the sickbed for the next few days. Will I ever learn my lesson? Probably not :)

On another note, how fun is my new bag?! I got it the other day and am so in love with it. I have been wanting an animal print bag for a while, but didn't want anything too over-the-top. This one has just the right amount so that it is fun, but doesn't overpower. Also, it's the perfect size so that it fits all the essential, but nothing gets lost in it. I think this guy is going to get a lot of use.

I was wearing:

Zara Dress as Skirt
Forever 21 Jacket
Zara Plaid Top (similar here and here)
Topshop Boots
Topshop Necklace

Thanks so much for visiting!

  4. I just love that bag! Also very pretty lip shade xx


  5. I love the outfit and agree it looks great without tights. I'm hoping to ditch mine soon and enjoy bare legs for our summer!
    Great bag!! Very fun indeed.

  7. Absolutely love this outfit! & you're right, it wouldn't be the same with tights, too bad you're sick right now..
    But I totally get you, tights can be so annoying and totally ruin your look! I will be happy when spring/summer is back, I'm not a tight-person either and I'm even less a winter-person, I just hate the cold brrrr!
    Hope you feel better soon babe! xx

  8. Lovely leather and lace look...but I have to ask: why the hate-on for tights?! I like bare legs as much as the next girl, but tights can add another layer of interesting colour or texture (or both!) to an outfit!! Personally, I'm going to embrace the option over the coming months...I've already stocked up!! :)

  9. such a beautiful outfit !
