It’s all about these fashion tights in this outfit. I literally built this outfit to feature these fun tights. It’s also a great thing that the weather in San Diego is still very mild (upper 70s and 80s), so I can definitely get away with wearing this outfit both during the day and evenings.
I picked up these tights from Ross Fashion For Less for $4.99 as an impulse buy as they were right next to the register. You guys already know about my love for Ross as seen here and here and here. Their thrifty prices on fashionable items speaks volumes to my budget conscious needs. Honestly, I have never worn tights like these before because I have always lived on the east coast.
By the time, fall hits in those parts, there is no way I wanted exposed skin for the sake of looking cute. However, the beautiful San Diego weather has allowed me to step up my fashion game and try out more fall trends. Thus — these tights!
Heading out for ladies’ night, I figured I could test drive these tights. Of course, a mini skirt was a must since I wanted to show off the pattern in the tights. I thrifted this black Express skirt from a Goodwill in Los Angeles for $2.99 — can you say score! Going for some color, I went with this red cowl neck Banana Republic sweater, thrifted from the Salvation Army for $4.00. I added a striped long sleeve shirt underneath. Of course, that black and white striped shirt was only $1.00 at the United Cerebral Palsy thrift store. I have a thing for stripes and buy them all the time when I am thrifting. They are perfect pieces to make an outfit stand out.
I completed this outfit with these booties from Ross Dress For Less for only $16.00. They are super comfortable and of course, you can’t beat the price. If you haven’t visited a Ross store yet, you are definitely missing out. By the way – this is not a sponsored post, although the way I am carrying on about Ross, you would think otherwise.
