Favorite Tights, Rain, and Being Hungry


So I think I may have found my favorite tights in existence (that is until I change my mind next week). I also have decided that tights are one my favorite clothing items, I have almost 20 pairs to prove this thought of mine. They're just so perfect and can be worn a million different ways. This pair in particular has given me lots of ideas of how to wear them, I just need to get around to doing it. It took me forever to get these pictures of them, and of course the day I decided to get this done was extremely rainy! So I had the smart idea of balancing on a railing only a few inches wide while trying to take pictures on our front porch. Miraculously I managed to not fall.


Speaking of porches, our house has three of them. One is completely screened in, which up until now we haven't used. For the past couple of years our good friends Mike & Lindsi have lived with us. Our house is very convenient for roommates. It's like 150 years old which means no hallways , it's perfectly set up to be split in half into a 'duplex'. Each couple has their own bedroom and living room, we just share a kitchen and bathroom. The front porch is connected to our living room, the screened porch to theirs. But they're moving out! All on their very own, we're all quite grownup now as of today. They got a puppy and need some more space. So we gain two extra rooms and a porch! One of the rooms is going to be the craft room, so I will now have no reason to not be productive. No more craft stuff spread around the house and shoved into every nook and cranny.

Instead of crafts, I have been cooking up a storm the past couple of days! I think I just wanted to eat a lot. Black bean pumpkin soup, honey popcorn balls (not so good), whole wheat bread (delicious, have almost inhaled both loaves already), and tonight we had homemade pizza. I worked at pizza places for like 4 years, so I am pretty much a pro (intimidating, I know). Tomorrow off to the store for more ingredients, pear muffins and ginger cookies are next on the list! I also just bought a mini doughnut pan, so all of my dreams are about to come true.

I also want to thank everyone for leaving such nice comments, every single one is always appreciated.

  2. Pear muffins! I have never heard of those but they sounds soooo good right about now (it's now 1:00am as I'm typing this and I am seriously crazing a past-midnight snack).

    Anyways, your tights are so lovely, I can totally see why they're you're new favorite pair. I've been aching for a pair of printed tights for a while now and I just don't know where to start. Perhaps I should finally venture out into my local UO for some.

  5. Hey! I haven't visited in AGES, so have heaps to say, but I'll try and be more regular in my reading of your posts, so won't burst out all my thoughts at once here.

    The first though, my husband is a colour grader of film, and commented on how wonderful your 'grade' is on your photos. Not sure whether you or your partner take the phots or whatever, but just wanted to pass on the professional comment!

    xoxo

  12. This post seriously captures all of my dreams....seriously! I am obsessed with the idea of having a huge serene porch one day (three is amazing!) where I can set my freshly baked goods on the window to cool!

    I LOVE those tights, especially paired with the striped shirt...I am really into subtle pattern mixing these days!

    You should post some photos of your yummy goodies! Especially the mini doughnuts!

    I'm a huge fan of tights too and those are some of the most adorable I've seen.

  14. I love your tights! They're like an updated version of the little girls' thick cable knit tights (which I would actually still wear if I could find them in my size).

    You might need to post the pumpkin/bean soup recipe... Do you have a bread machine? I've been making the best breads lately too! Recipe swap! :)

  15. Oh I love these tights! They are so pretty and lacey, but simple enough to go with so much! I love the tights and shorts combo, myself, these days.
