While this outfit looked cute to the eye, layering a summery dress with a sweater, coat and tights... it made me have a serious panic attack on the inside. 

Let me let you in on something... fleece lined tights. This was a blogger secret I learned a year ago... seeing these girls standing in skirts in the snow so I picked some up. So warm and so soft, I thought "these girls are so smart!". So on this brisk morning when we decided to embark on South Coast Plaza I knew these would be perfectly toasty. Well... in a mall full of people, in stores with their heaters on full blown I began to get overwhelmed, and sweaty, but I really couldn't de-layer. I kept feeling my face thinking I was getting a fever and shopping seemed like torture. I thought this was some quick onset flu. Quickly, I decided to go into a fitting room and try something on, aka rip these tights off... oh sweet bliss. These babies are like little heaters wrapped around your legs! Not meant for indoors and certainly not meant for California's version of winter. Needless to say, it was not the flu and life resumed to normal after a change of clothes and a sandwich. 

I am tucking these away and saving them for amore appropriate time like, a walk in the snow or something.


  1. I had no idea such things were made! Love the layers girl! And thanks again for yesterday! :)

  11. I love that while needing layers you're still drinking an iced coffee drink. I'm the same way. Folks ask if I'm crazy but I can't help it. :)
