Tights and Shorts; A Love Affair.

How did I function last winter without colored tights?? I'm discovering so many fun ways to wear them this year, including with this pair of pleather shorts I scored on Black Friday for $12.

These shorts are really high quality for being pleather--even up close I can't tell they aren't real leather. I paired them with cabernet colored tights, a navy tee, my long grandpa sweater and leopard flats. Perfect for running errands or lunch with the girls. The hubs is still warming up to new fashion trends, including colored tights and leather shorts, so it might be awhile before I wear something like this for a date night haha. How does your significant other react to more "daring" fashion?

I work in a creative environment, so I'm totally going to rock tights and shorts at work. I'll just switch the flats out for dainty heels and lose the grandpa sweater. Something like this pic below.

This is probably one of those looks that you either totally love or totally hate, which is ok with me. What do you think of the tights and shorts trend? Would you rock this look at the office? Have a great Wednesday, friends!

  4. Are those the LC shorts from Kohls? I want to go try them out!

  5. Thanks for the sweet comments ladies! I actually did wear this outfit to the office--everyone loved it! And Jess yes these are the LC shorts from Kohls! Just FYI I sized up b/c they are not stretchy and I wanted a little more room to tuck shirts in. I have a coupon code I can email you as well if you'd like it!
