Shorts With Tights

Hey I thought I was farther behind on my outfit posts than I actually am, so now I get to share my zeitgeist photos with you! It’s a zeitgeist because Erin, Elissa, and I all wore tights with shorts this week, unbeknownst to one another, like some kind of weird phenomena. It’s like the outfit version of a Steig Larsson novel up in here. Well, actually it’s Texas, and it’s a “cold front” and it’s an awesome outfit to wear when it’s not quite hot enough to bare the legs. Us Texas girls are on the same wavelength.

So, some of you have asked about what the deal is with this cooking show business I keep yammering on about.  Well, it’s my dear friend Hilah’s cooking show and it’s called Hilah Cooking! I get to be a guest because I am always camera-ready. Seriously, I am. Just show me your camera and I will stick my head in front of your lens. Ew. Well, anyway, Hilah let me be a guest on her cooking show to help with two episodes about what to cook if you are a guy trying to impress a girl. I am really impressed by any guy who tries to cook, so it was easy. I am also Hilah’s wardrobe stylist so be sure to notice that when she’s wearing a belt, it’s my influence!

Tee: JCrew, Shorts: men’s Levi’s (buffalo exchange), Tights: Gap, Shoes: Rust-Have Wedges (ModCloth), Necklace: F21, Sweater: Vince

What’s up there, Penny?

    I go back and forth if I like shorts and tights enough to try them. The problem is it gets so warm so fast in New Orleans by the time I need to bust out my shorts you can cut the humidity with a knife rendering tights a silly notion. Still if we get a cool front (I wish) I might give it a try.

    I might have to do shorts with tights this weekend now, when we have our "warm" 50° weather, haha.

    I really love your rust colored shoes with the green top, it's a perfect pair!

    Chic on the Cheap

    I have this weird mental block about tights and shorts…so many people rock it, but I always feel there's something off or wrong about it. I've done it twice on my blog, and my most recent one was a big hit on flickr, so maybe I should get with the program.

    Hilarious that you, Erin and I all socked the shorts with tights look this week. Though I think you did a far better job than me. I love the cardi and boots. Super cute.

    You're always camera ready? Really? What? I had no idea. This is absolutely shocking, I dare say! Oh, wait, I have mucho photobomb proof from TxSCC.

    I especially love those tights paired with those shoes. Very retro, 70s vibe with those colors. <3

    I wore shorts with tights one time, and Mr. A laughed at me and said that I should take them off because I looked like a damn fool.
    I think it is because I have short, midget legs, and I looked stupid.
    I wish I could pull off this look as well as you. LAMEBALLS.
