Happiness Is

Happiness is: fun tights on a chilly fall day!

I love these:

This is a bad picture (thanks crappy non i-phone). Possibly too much grey here. I think I was wearing a black button-up blouse.

My all-time favorite.

I'm pretty sure this legwear would be inappropriate in many law offices. But I work for a small, slightly more casual firm. We do insurance defense and rarely meet clients. I definitely would not wear these on a day when I had a stuffy, important meeting. Not that I ever have those. I'm not that important yet.

But aren't they so fun?!

Tights are my new thing. On the days I wear crazy tights, I'm sure to tone down the rest of my outfit so that I'm not emiting symptoms of headaches, dizzines, and blurred vision. I am now on a quest to find MORE fun tights. Checking-account, beware!

Today at Target I bought...get this....


Reversible tights! When I saw them, they blew my mind! They are grey on one side and black on the other. I can't wait to try them on. By the way, I refuse to spell grey with an "a." It looks much more eloquent with an "e." In fact, I'm on a personal quest to change the dictionary spelling of the word. If you are interested in joining any of my country-wide public demonstrations, just shoot me an email.

It's 12:05am and I should go to bed. I HATE going to bed. Don't get me wrong, I love to sleep. I just hate going to bed. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I absolutely dread brushing me teeth. So I put it off as long as possibe. This is why I'm sitting here on the couch at midnight constructing a blog post about the spelling of the word "grey." Yeah, I'm a little bit strange.

But at least I have cool tights!


  1. ah, you would fit right in here in Tokyo! everyone is wearing tights right now. under capri pants, under booty shorts (apparently this is acceptable work attire for some people?), under pencil skirts--they're everywhere. kinda blows my mind coming from California where people skip panty hose altogether. in shibuya over the weekend I saw a whole line of tights made to look tattoos. do you want a barcode on your leg? some sort of gun/strap-on design a la angelina jolie? poorly translated english/french phrases? you name it, they've got it!

    back to the point: your tights are fab!

  2. Love the tights! That first pair are super cute! (I have a pair like that, but they're a little thicker/darker) And I hate brushing my teeth, too! What's up with that?? Lol. That's why, if you recall at our wedding reception, during the reading of our vows, your brother vowed to brush my teeth for me when I'm too tired! Hasn't happened yet, but I swear, some nights I contemplate making him hold up his end of the bargain! ;)

  3. I never thought I could pull it off, but I may have to revisit. I am in love with the first pair. Remember where they came from?
