Burgundy Schoolgirl

I knew I'd be tired after staying up late to watch the election coverage (for you non-Canucks, we had our major election last night - see, we do these things FAST). Anyway, good ol' fall-back: the dress.
I love this plain cut dress. The dark grey, the pinstripe, the cut - it's all good. Throw on a little blouse, some tights (because it's cold and I'm getting lazy about shaving my legs), a comfy pump, and I'm good to go. Doesn't get much easier than this.

However, despite my intent for simplicity, I had a major issue all day: the tights. I usually love tights (they suck everything in, hide the hairy legs, allow you to tuck your blouse into them for a nice sleek line, etc. etc.). BUT - I forgot I had a pair of "hipster" tights for wearing with low-waisted skirts. And these are they. Oh man, I was pulling at them all day! They gave me muffin-top mid-hip, my blouse got all bulgy in the middle, and I kept plucking at myself. So annoying.

Please ignore my hair, which looks like ass. Got caught in the rain on the way home and have "hood-head".

Dress (Mac & Jac), blouse (Nygaard Collection), tights (Hue), shoes (Aerosoles), black stone/silver earrings.


  1. Great outfit. Is the smile beacuse you can finally take those damn tights off?

  2. That's a great look!
    I'm glad to hear that it's not only me that doesn't always shave their legs, which is the reason why I wear footless tights all the time. Everyone around me is Waxed to the Max. I couldn't be bothered

  3. Jane: YES!

    Della: I hate shaving my legs - I never have time in the mornings (I am so NOT a morning person), so I put it off until the weekend or have a bath the night before. I've never waxed.
