Ever since getting these polka dot tights for NYE, I've really been getting my money's worth and then some. Isn't it a beautiful thing when that happens? I love wearing shorts with tights underneath during the winter time since it's never truly winter time here and these tights have been perfect for that. The polka dot print is small, so they go well with many different things without it looking like too much is going on. I added a colorful plaid scarf and printed clutch for added visual interest. After all, sometimes a girl needs a little more than all the basics.
I have to say that an all black pea coat is one of those basics absolutely necessary for everyone. If for whatever reason there's a boy reading this, that means you too. I found this one at Macy's several years ago and loved the cropped look. It actually came with black buttons and decided that I could make it look a little more expensive by switching them out with gold ones. Like I said, sometimes a girl does need a little more than the basics. I guess I turned out to be somewhat of a button snob, beacause over the years I've switched out a good number of those suckers.
*For the boy reading this, you may want to just leave the black buttons as is. Your choice though.
