Waaay back in February, SarahN dropped this one into the suggestion box:
I’d love a feature on how to dress around colored tights. I just bought a teal pair and have no idea what to with them. You wear them with such aplomb, I’m sure you have some great tips.
I know many folks are still dealing with summer heatwaves, but fall is just around the corner! The time is ripe to tackle tights, and so we shall.
I adore tights, and consider them a quick and easy way to inject even MORE color into my cold-weather outfits. But I was interested to discover the I have posted relatively few bright-tights outfits to the blog! I figured this was one of my staples, but it’s really not. I rely on neutral tights and colorful garments more often than not. But here are some outfits that included vibrantly colored tights, and why I think they work.

Mana G popped this request into the box:
How to dress in ridiculously, stiflingly hot weather… And still look fashionable.
I wore the outfit above on a day when it was 95 degrees with a heat index of 105, and humid as hell. I was indoors most of the day, it’s true, but this outfit still fits my main criteria for a stylish hot weather ensemble. And they are …
Washable: If you’re like me, you sweat mostly from your armpits. If it’s hot out, there’s no WAY I’m putting on something that needs hand washing or dry cleaning.

I’ve been thrifting since I was in middle school. I remember rifling through the racks of moth-eaten sweatshirts and paint-stained jeans as a girl, hoping to unearth something marvelous. And I nabbed my Pentagon Officers Athletic Club running shorts and hilarious red twill mechanic’s jumpsuit back then, so treasures did come to hand. But the shops were disorganized, the merchandise was a bit shabby, and it took loads of patience to find anything worthwhile. I think that many thrift shops have improved conditions and become more discerning about what they’ll sell, but some are still messy and packed with damaged garments.
