My Legs Have Gone PLUM CRAZY!

There's finally snow on the ground!  And it has stayed there for over 24 hours (and counting)!  That's progress... now I just want some real snow.  As in snow day type snow.  I am happy that I captured the snow flakes falling in these pictures.  So pretty.

I was feeling a bit quirky today with my outfit choice.  I've probably had these purple tights for five years now and have only worn them once.  I always feel silly with them yet I still love them and can't throw them out.  So I figured it was time to put them on again!

How do you feel about strappy summer wedges worn with tights in the winter?  I gotta say, I thought it was kinda silly looking at first but then warmed up to it a bit (no pun intended).  My new feelings are that as long as the toe seam is not showing, you're good.  But that's just one woman's opinion.

skirt: The Limited
tights: Express
blouse: Girlfriends LA (super old school!!)
vest: Forever21
owl necklace: gift
black wedges: Target

What a perfect Saturday afternoon.  I'm sitting in my living room as I type this, looking out the window and watching the snow fall with my cup of hot tea!  Yay!

Hope everyone's having a great weekend so far!

Until next time...
