I don't wanna be a tiger, 'Cause tigers play too rough..

Feels a bit strange posting these photos because I know I wore a really similar outfit not that long ago, but what can I say? I like the way this jumper seems to work over this dress.

These tights have been hanging around waiting for an opportunity to be worn for a while now. I couldn't resist them in the ASOS sale earlier in the year. One major benefit I can see to the recent slightly-shorter dresses I've been making (mostly because I've been buying 1.5m without realising until afterwards that will make a dress with a gathered skirt a few inches shorter than I'd been making previously), is that I can wear a pair of tights with cutesy detail like this and still be able to see it.

I didn't feel like my dress was *too* short exactly, but I think that's only because I wore it with the tights and flat shoes. To be fair, these shoes have been hanging about waiting to be worn for a while as well; I bought them back in February but have only just worn them. I figure they'll fit nicely into my wardrobe to replace the two pairs of metallic Irregular Choice flats which I had to get rid of during my challenge as they'd worn out.

And this coat, again. It might be my favourite coat purchase of the year.

    1. Thank you!! I've been finding lately that when i've paired a jumper and dress together, I seem to wear them together again - outfit laziness I think.

  3. Yes, I find that too with tights with cute details....they usually get lost under my longer hemlines. I'm rarely comfortable in shorter things with tights, prefer leggings for them. Anyway these are gorgeous.

    1. Thanks!! :) I think maybe I was OK with thehemline because they're mostly dark tights, so it didn't look quite as short, maybe? Although I'm not sure how that really would have made any difference.
