Just what does an already good pair of boots need this Fall?


Colored tights; textured tights; yes, even black tights.

When it came time to shoot the new Beryl sweater pictures for the pattern, it only seemed natural to find some color to go down the runway with it! The dramatic blue of the sweater (called *Blue Velvet* by the yarn co.) seemed to want a little fun of its own…

In front you see the first thing I found: a pair of turquoise leggings. Now, I’m not really on the leggings bandwagon but I felt with a little cropping they might work.

I’d already visited WOLFORD & WeLoveColor and had been inflamed with the possibilities of leg-to-go but I had to find something in town, that very afternoon.

The leggings were from Express on Mich Ave. Then I wandered up to Bloomingdale’s and even though they had a wall of Wolford, they did not have any colors
