Back To Black

I'm having an impossible time taking pictures lately; the weather is just so miserable. I got rained on for these and I can only bare that for a short period of time since my camera is not waterproof!

If there is one common thread amongst fashion bloggers, it is our tendency to talk about the weather. We have our reasons: after all temperatures greatly effect outfit choices. Further, when you blog regularly you might just run out of things to say...
On weather affecting one's wardrobe: I'm a firm believer in wearing dresses in the dead of winter, come snow and ice. This can leave one's legs quite chilled, though layering tights and leggings is helpful. The thickest, coziest tights I currently possess are a recent gift from Ozone Socks. I was pleasantly surprised by the sweater-like feel and thickness. They will definitely be keeping my legs "snug as a bug in a rug" this winter and the pattern on them is adorable too. Style and substance? It is possible!
I hope you all are not too bored with BlogMeetBlog stuff yet, because here's a few more links to check out:

  3. Oh, I so get to leave the first comment. That makes me feel super special. Firstly, I am sorry about the weather. I was talking with my husband last night and we agreed that October to March it is only sunny out 10 to 20 percent of the days here. So I hope it isn't that bad there.

    Also, I love the tights. And I just have to have those shoes. Whenever you wear them I want them. In fact, I dreamed about them last night; I was so happy I had a pair!

    I thought you did great in the interview btw.

    I give this outfit 4 thumbs up (I offer my sons as well).

  4. This might seem a bit silly, but I like the colors you're wearing! The cozy cream and brown accents are perfectly autumnal. And I love, love, love your tights!

  9. Oh what a lovely outfit!

    I usually don't wear skirts in the winter but I want to start this year. So far IRS been rather difficult as I only just got a pair of tights, but at least I'm making progress!

    I really must be sure to get a simple black dress, as well.

  22. I love your tights! I like to wear dresses during winter, and it helps to have those thick knit tights :) I too complain about the weather on a daily basis!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think this outfit is perfect! Love it so much. I have some similar shoes. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Taking pictures is the hardest part of my blog, I find. I leave for work in the dark and get home in the dark! And as we're in the UK, it's always raining and more often than not, too grim to even contemplate doing anything other than rushing from car to front door.

    Your pictures always come out great, though. I totally agree with wearing dresses in the dead of winter - dresses make everything so cheerful!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ugh yes, rain just makes me want to wear pjs and stay in. And no, my pjs are not stylish at all! ;) They usually consist of a random t-shirt and some girl boxers.

    I love your scarf! It looks sooo cozy! And your neck accessory complements your girly outfit so well!

  30. Oh weather, a love & hate relationship. I was going to take some outfit photos today but suddenly then the sky turned too dark. Your photos came out really nice though, I love the gray sky in the background. And I really like your tights!

    ReplyDelete
  31. OMG I almost had heart attack when I saw your tights from ozone!!! I want I want them!!!!

    superb outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Adorable, as always :) And I love your tights, as always!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Those tights are amazing and your blog is so great, so glad I found it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have made it my absolute mission to wear a dress or skirt at least 5 days out of the week this winter.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You look adorable in those photos :) P.S. Thanks for all your hardwork at Blog Meet Blog it was wonderful meeting you!

    ReplyDelete
  36. wow. i honestly dont think i would be able to pull off the stocking but you did it beautifully. i personally would not have imagined that it would look so complementary together. i mean its simple black but it brings more life to the outfit because of it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. oh don't worry about the weather, your photos are always so beautiful. it looks like you live in a stunning place! and that blogger meet-up sounded like tons of fun (oh you are small! don't worry about looking like a midget, you look completely adorable). don't let gloomy weather get you down, you never disappoint :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. i'm a firm believer in wearing dresses in the dead of winter as well (luckily in the south it never gets THAT cold). i'll definitely have to check out the socks/tights you recommended.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Gorgeous pics & outfit! LOVE that scarf! I need something warm like that, as I'm heading to Japan (Winter) in 3 weeks time (so excited) :)

  40. That is one AWESOMES scarf. I wasn't really into the whole "infinty scarf" thang until just now, when I saw it on you.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Those tights are so funky! You look great and I love how you mixed the black with the brown!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love your outfits with all black and brown shoes. What do you think about all brown with black shoes? I've been debating several outfits with these colors.
    I am with you 100% with skirts and dresses all year long. Our legs will just have to suffer :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. wow! you're always perfect.
    i loved your shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the black and I think I need those shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Those tights are seriously rad! You're lucky you live in the Pacific Northwest where it doesn't get that cold!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Those tights are just lovely. What a great way to keep warm and fancy up a basic black dress.

    ReplyDelete
  47. i love everything about this outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Those are just about the most amazing tights ever.

    ReplyDelete
  49. darling, seriously, who takes your pictures?

    ReplyDelete
  50. yes, me too stuck in the rain on the wet coast!! I do take pics on my balcony so that is easy, but out there - girl you are a fighter braving the elements. And these shots are still beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love your scarf/cowl. I'm trying to knit one myself!

    Also, those tights are the prettiest I've seen in a while :)

  52. This outfit is too cute! I love the tights.

  53. For a long time that I read your blog without ever leaving feedback ... I don't speak English really well (I am French) but I have recently to do it more often in order to open my own fashion blog! So I take this opportunity to tell you that your blog is part of my favorites, I love your style, your pretty dresses, and your pictures in the countryside (beautiful landscapes!!)... In addition you are super pretty.
    Kisses and don't hesitate to come on my blog ;)

  58. Totally love that neck thingy. Is it a scarf or a great big loop? Looks a bit like a loop as I can't see any ends...
    Think I'll have to make one of these for myself next winter

    ReplyDelete

  60. Very cute, as usual! I like how you pointed out our references to the weather....it's such a common way to start off a post, to the point it's becoming trite.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Those are some interesting tights, I've never seen any like that, I really like them!

  62. those tights make an otherwise all black outfit seem happy!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I agree, I am totally into wearing dresses all through winter! Even with the cold weather!

    I feel like talking about the weather is unavoidable with my blog because people get all uppity about me taking my pictures out in the snow! Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  64. another darling outfit -- love your tights.

  65. LOVE the tights!!

  66. I talk about the weather all the time too! Haha, you're right. It definitely affects what you're wearing and it helps when you run out of things to say! Adorable outfit.. love those tights! Amazing style.. as always!

  67. black always works! Love the tights and scarf with it!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Love your tights!

    I can say that you're lucky to be able to talk about various weather you're experiencing. I can only get from "it's really sunny" to "it's raining like hell". No falling leaves, winter breeze, or snow since I'm living in a tropical country.

    But, yeah, the weather IS a good topic to talk about...

    ReplyDelete
  69. Love the scarf! Circle scarves are one of those things I love because they are so easy to style. I also love knits, they are my current favorite pieces. Love your blog. I follow it regularly.

  70. Those tights are simply wonderful!

  74. LOVE your tights and scarf with it :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. I agree on what you're saying on some many levels... I have an awfully hard time taking pics in winter too, as the light is so scarce. And I'm a firm believer in the theory that dresses and skirts can actually be warmer and comfier in winter than, say, jeans.
    I have started layering my tights already, even if here in Greece the weather is playing us up and acting like it's spring! I know it won't last...

    ReplyDelete
  76. The tights are awsome! Love your scarf too, how it both adds some colour to the black outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love these tights!! im a firm believer of wearing dresses all year round too but often end up with cold feet! ps i hate the weather at the min too! I Work 9-5 so by the time i leave work its dark so no photos can be taken til the weekend!

  79. Oh wow, it actually looks like England in these photos! The Californian bloggers have been freaking me out with their sunny snaps, it's been raining here non-stop for weeks! (hence the very dull photos in my flat)

    I'm in love with those tights!

    ReplyDelete
  80. The rain is the reason why I sometimes can't post outfit pictures for a week or so. The Dutch weather is rather unpredictable and it's sometimes just impossible to live the house when it's pouring.

    Those tights are super pretty! I need to go tights shopping soon.

    ReplyDelete
  81. ohmygoodness i adore the tights and shoe boots - they are divine.

    I totally sympathise with the whole not being able to take photographs because of unco-operative weather - supersuckfest

    i am in love with your blog, totally linking it =]

  83. Wow!! These tights are so beautiful!!! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  84. However, it's not just your average "Black" outfit. Nothing you do is standard--which is what makes you so fantastic.

    The infinity scarf and the whimsical tights still give it that quirky, cute charm you infuse into all your thoughtfully constructed looks.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Cool tights! Btw, thanks for the Cavalli-inspired DIY tights!

    ReplyDelete
  86. excellent. someone else who is short! I love the shoes you are wearing here. and the tights look toasty x

    ReplyDelete
  87. love the oxfords and popcorn scarf!

    it's cloudy a lot here... so i understand the photo frustration too...

    ReplyDelete
  88. i need those tights! i LOVE the whole dang outfit and the fact that you wear dresses even if it's cold. rock on! :D

  91. What lovely pictures! She looks stunning and that scarf looks so soft and comfortable! Need to buy it!

    ReplyDelete
  92. those tights are amazing! i really want some cosy wooly tights that feel almost like sweat pants (like leggings i guess but with feet)

    ReplyDelete
  93. Oh yes, I know what you mean! I'm having double-trouble taking pictures these days, we only have daylight for about four and a half hours: and with the rain and wind it's almost impossible. I have the smallest apartment too, with no naked walls or anywhere pretty to take pictures - I can't wait till spring! I need sun, and gentle breezes and temperatures above zero degrees Celsius!

    Sorry for rambling :p I do love your tights!

    ReplyDelete
  94. still loving that beautiful scarf!

    ReplyDelete
  95. i understand your weather problem.
    you have such the beatiful shoes and location!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I know how you feel about weather! Ahahaha,it does affect my outfit choices on certain days. heeee
    I do talk about the weather sometimes.

    Adore your cowl and also your dress with those tights,love love that they like twine around your legs. beautiful.
