Sunglasses, Cardi, Skull Ring & Coral Necklace: Downtown Threads, Dress (worn as top): TJ Maxx, Pencil Skirt: Forever 21, Tights: Gifted, Boots: Old NavyHow beautiful are these last fall leaves? I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving already, time seems to be flying by faster and faster each day. Before I know it there will be snow on the ground and I’ll be bundled up like an Eskimo!
The last time I wore these boots (here) a friend of mine commented “nice bats”. I was perplexed until he explained that combat boots are commonly referred too as “bats”; am I the only one who didn’t know this? Anyway… this is the second time I styled my velvet bats and again I choose to go with an predominately black ensemble.
Maybe it’s becuase I’m still testing the waters on how to best style my bats that I find myself gravitating toward all black looks but I think in this case it works. I like the streamlined, monochromatic feel and the textured tights and coral statement necklace kept things from getting boring. I used to think that textured and colored tights were best saved for playing dress up but I’ve started to get more comfortable wearing and styling them. When D left for work this morning he said “see ya later fishnet lady!” I guess he liked the tights too.
How do you break up monochromatic looks? What crazy tights do you have in your collection?
