My mind has been elsewhere and the blog has been someone neglected this week - my bad! As winter approaches and it's time to start thinking about our new season clobber (this must be true, all the magazines say so!) I realise that harder than getting your winter wardrobe out is handling the transition - going from summer to winter without looking like you're wearing half of your summer wardrobe and half of your winter one (which is what most of us do!) is a nightmare! My answer to this? Bring out the tights!
With brightly coloured tights you can still get away with wearing your favourite vibrant summer frocks (you just need to add a jacket!) Black tights get me through my working week, and patterned tights add detail to even the plainest outfit. They're a coloured saviour!
On mytights.com I fell in love with these Bebaroque designs: at £25 for the tassled pair and £37 for the sequinned ones they aren't cheap (despite the fact that these are the 50% off prices!) but they really would be the focal point of whatever outfit you teamed them with; they're just too gorgeous to resist! I've just ordered the rosette ones, so i'll let you know how I get on with them when they arrive!
And if you have slightly better pins than me, I still love the Henry Holland for Pretty Polly patterned tights: I just don't have the legs to pull of all the sheer panels, sadly. The price points aren't bad on these though, and you'll pick a pair up for less than a tenner; some of the newer designs are slightly more at £14.99. If you love these but (like me) don't want to get your pins out then something I tried last winter, with the pink house ones, that worked was putting a pair of white opaque tights underneath them. It kept me extra toasty too!!
If you're looking to get your tights at a more reasonable price then:
-Dorothy Perkins has a deal on theirs: £8 for 2 pairs of their 80/50 denier tights.
- You can get 30 different styles of tights on asos (Including a gorgeous 80 denier mustard pair) for a fiver or less
- Primark have just had their new season hosiery arrive (literally this week!) with prices starting from £1.

PS - Lovely little sis has her big op tomorrow, and we are taking her to the hospital this afternoon, so my posting might be sporadic for a couple of days - few things take priority over fashion, but this is definitely one of them, and all my free time will either be spent in the hospital with Amie, or with the rest of my family.
