Confession: The reason I wear black tights so often is because I’ve torn all my nude stockings, and can’t remember to pick up replacements. (Seriously.) But you know what? I’m kind of lovin’ it. It’s different, to say the least! And it gives an otherwise springy/summery dress like this one a more seasonally appropriate look. ;)

Dress: Harlyn (c/o) — Available in spring 2014, but shop Harlyn here and here in the meantime! / Bracelets: Fornash (c/o), Julie Vos via Tuckernuck (c/o), and Kate Spade / Bag: Kate Spade / Pumps: Kate Spade, similar here and here / Belt: Lilly Pulitzer (Sold out–clearly a favorite during the holiday season!), but loving this gold bow belt from Target! More options: onetwothree, and four. And dying over this tortoise Kate Spade bow belt. (Swoon.) Skinnier bow belts in blackwhite and pink, too! / Necklace: J.Crew (Old), almost identical here / Earrings: J.Crew / Lipstick: Clinique (“Pudgy Peony”)
