La de da… (Picture me skipping in a summer sundress along the city sidewalk – ok fine, pushing a double stroller to Target to pick up some diapers. Does that sound more realistic? No matter what I was wearing or whether I was dancing a jig or pushing a stroller, the sun shone down on me on a warm 78 degree day.)
Fast forward 48 hours… Boom!
Frozen fingers failing at attempts to text my sister while I freeze off my booty and my scantily clad feet (ooh – risque) walking home from work. WTF?!
There were two thoughts flying through my head when this happened a while back:
- Stop texting me! My sister was only trying to coordinate our travel plans, all good. But my friggin’ fingers were freezing and I just wanted to stuff them in my pockets until I got home.
- I’m so mad it’s this cold already. My 72 hours of Chicago summer bliss had passed me by without much more than a blink. I was SOO not emotionally prepared for this.
So what’s a working girl (keep your mind out of the gutter) to do? Whip out my tights obviously. Recently, I shared some tips for wearing colored tights to the office. Since that very cold texting ordeal with my sister, I’ve been in tights pretty much every day thanks to continuously plummeting temperatures.
Today, I opted for black tights with some added interest thanks to the ribbed pattern weaved into them. I’ve compiled quite the collection of tights to be honest, with all this winter weather we endure. Seriously! For those of you who don’t live in the Midwest, winter recently has arrived in September or October and hung on for dear life well into May. Ugh!
Out of my overflowing drawer full of colorful tights, patterned tights, boring old nude tights, and everything in between, today I pulled out my Kushyfoot tights. Not just any old tights, the bottom of the feet have chevron shaped treads, essentially, that act to massage your feet all day as you walk on them. When I first put them, I definitely felt the added comfort. As the day wore on, my feet apparently got used to the premier treatment and the tights felt similar to others I own.
Kushyfoot sent me these tights and requested I review them. Then if I liked them, they hoped I would share them with you. So they made the blog! I do like the tights. They sent me the ribbed version, which was great as I don’t really have anything like it already. They also offer fleece lined tights which would have been PERFECT for the terribly cold weather we’ve experiencing here. I’ll have to try those another day.
In the meantime, I think it’s fair to add this brand to my list of tights options. Remember not long ago I asked all of you where you buy your tights? If you do buy them, I’d size up. I fit right into the middle of the “medium” description and these tights fit… barely. I’d prefer them in a larger size if I bought them again, especially since tights with just a tiny bit of extra space are less likely to run. If you choose the fleece options, definitely size up. Fleece tights in general are much less stretchy than regular tights due to the fleece component.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
P.S. So far, I’ve committed four good deeds. Just 96 to go and my bracelet helps me keep track of my progress! Not sure what all this mumbo jumbo is? Pop on over to this post about my 100 Goods Bracelet for all the details.
Jenna, from Sincerely Jenna Marie, is back as a feature. First, I fell in love with her outfit for this week. The color combination is awesome, and I love that it’s probably pretty warm considering it’s been so darn cold in much of this country. The bright colors are great for the doldrum days of winter weighing us down emotionally.
Next, though, I fell madly in love with Jenna’s blog post. So after you stop on over to see more details about her outfit (including her very awesome earrings), keep scrolling down and read her post. It’s great for bloggers for obvious reasons, but also nice to show non-blogging readers a bit of insight into the not-world-war-3 caliber but very real traps and trends in which bloggers find themselves caught up. The things she shares really are applicable to just about all of us, to some degree, though some handle it better than others. (After you’ve been blogging for a bit, you can kind of tell who deals and who doesn’t, but ya know…)
So seriously, be enamored by the great blue and green goodness, pop over to read more on space, and then come back to link up your outfits!
