Freshly Minted

Jacket & Tights: Target   Tank: TJ Maxx   Cardigan & Skirt: thrifted   Wedges: Go Jane   Necklace & Earrings: c/o Born Pretty

Since winter nip is in the air, I've taken to wearing tights a lot in order to continue getting away with my dresses and skirts. These cheerful, mint tights nabbed my eye while browsing through Target, and I had to test them out. This color is just so appealing! Especially when mixed with black accents.

These jewels are from Born Pretty, and I love the edgy yet bohemian feel to both. The spiked necklace makes the perfect statment, and the earrings have a pretty feel to them. I've got a couple more pieces from Born Pretty that I'm excited to show you! They have some fantastic options to choose from.

With holiday spirit in the air, I've been soaking in the simple things that make this time of year so enjoyable. Cozy clothes, layering, hot drinks, lazy days inside, hours of TV shows....the works.
Haha, when I have time at least! Corina and I stumbled across a new treasure of a TV show, Revenge! Oh man, we're obsessed. When we start one episode, we can't stop and end up watching about five. When they're approximately 45 minutes each, that adds up to a large chunk of time.

So being productive is not a big priority right now. The holidays cause an increase in laziness! With the end of the semester nearing, it's getting difficult to stay focused. Who else can't believe it's already December? Craziness!

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

Samantha said...

Oh, yay! You look so pretty in mint! You're right too, it looks awesome paired with black. And I love your jewelry, you always have the nicest pieces! It's funny, I tend to do more things in the winter, especially work (probably since there's not as much to do). But definitely yes to the cozy clothes and delicious warm beverages :)

Kim Alston said...

Excellent layering Linda! I love mint and glad to see it incorporated into your Winter wardrobe. Very pretty.

Ashley Taylor said...

You look great in mint, girl. I love that color for winter. Good luck on the end of your semester. I feel less productive lately too! I think
its the daylight savings time madness.

Jodie said...

The tights look awesome- so cool as an extra layer to the Look. Maybe I should give coloured legs a go?

Toks said...

Cool houndstooth skirt and the tights look good on you.

Toks said...

Cool houndstooth skirt and the tights look good on you although I'm not a huge fan of coloured tights, then again I'm not a huge fan on tights but in the winter we can't really get away with bare legs. hahaha

I really love these aqua ones, Linda! You should wear them tons so I can steals your funky outfits. ;D They look absolutely dashing on you!

Increase in laziness... that is pretty true around exam week! Man, I just can't wait for the holidays so I can work on my porfiolio lol lol. I am done with these current art projects. GURL WE NEED TO STAY FOCUSED

Nathyness said...

Yep, holiday relaxation mode has kicked in for me too. Which is bad, because I still have a ton left to do before Christmas!!

LOVE the penultimate picture here. It's a perfect shot! Great shirt, and great graphics too. I'm really loving the titled images in the beginning of each post. Looks so well put together. Because it is! Ha.

Shamu Boo said...

Ohwowthosetights!!! You sure know how to make my night, dear :) Pining for closer pictures of them but wonderfully grateful for the ones I have :) And, yes, I did (eventually) notice the rest of the outfit. "Beautiful" should be on something you wear all the time as it is an apt, if understated, description. Those earrings are so gorgeous but most stunning of all is that smile in the 2nd to last shot. DidIsayWowalready? :)

cute outfit! I think the tights make the outfit :)

Imogen said...

Love your skirt and it looks amazing with green.

Peet said...

I'm struggling with being productive too, what is it with this December???:) I just wanna cozy up under a blanket somewhere and watch some QUALITY tv. I should check out that Revenge show you mentioned...

P.S.: I LOVE this look, mint's one of my favorite colors, you look great, babe!!!
