FANCY PANTS [STRIPES & TIGHTS]


I blame the weather on the fact that I'm still wearing black. It was only 15 degrees today, and admit I was hoping to wear more colour.

You see, I've been totally inspired by Felicity @ Gifts of Seredipity (who, ironically, was inspired by me) to take some gorgeous snaps of her wardrobe. So much colour, and so much spring inside. I love taking a peek into other people's wardrobes, and looking at her collection, I'm dying to wear bright clothes for warmer weather! (I just don't think Melbourne has gotten that memo yet.)


And look who's up to his usual tricks! Madison kept timing his bike ride to come around around the same time as the camera takes it's timer shots. He's getting it just right now!


I confess since buying these pontie pants, whether one should wear them on their own, or always under something? I've leant towards treating them like tights rather than pants, because I've seen some scary looking, er, jeggings out there (and didn't want to be scarying anyone). But as for the quandry, I've always worn long tops or tunics worn over them. They've been such an amazing winter staple, and I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of them. And is there anything better than an elastic waist?

Perhaps the weather will get warmer and I won't have to keep pondering this while wearing a pair of shorts.


At the moment I'm so in love with this violet eye shimmer with no dark eyeshadow. I definitely don't look as tired. Which reminds me, when am I going to start reducing my sleep debt? My youngest lad is almost two and a half... (sixteen more years to go?)


Did you ponder how to wear tights during the cold weather (or was it just me)?

Why don't you linky up your Fancy Pants post below (yes, you need to have a photo in an outfit!) and add a link back to me in your post. You can also include button below. Then pop over to visit other bloggers who are dressing up this week.
