My previous post was all about staying warm when going out on the town by adding a leather jacket.  Today, a little tip to stay warm at the office – add some winter tights!  Okay maybe this is pretty basic winter dressing 101, but when you live in Texas sometimes you forget.  A few years back, I traveled to London in February.  I put together the most amazing theater ensemble with a skirt and a sweater. I didn’t even think about how cold my legs would be!  Luckily, I was able to pop in to a London H&M and pick up these black tights!  I love love love the dark black color, plus I have had them for several years and they still look new!  I must mention I probably only wear them 4-5 times a year which probably has helped them last longer.  I held out for a long time on buying dark black tights, because I hate pantyhose!  These are thicker material, so I don’t find them as annoying as normal pantyhose.  I am even considering picking up a pair of patterned tights next!
