Simple and pretty! I like the pattern mixing with the tights and the skirt.

Kari said...

The tights and skirt are awesome together - I love the pattern mixing!

Jess said...

Awesome skirt and tights!

Tina said...

Brooke - thanks! I'm not sure the pattern mixing turned out quite like I had hoped, but it's always good to try.

Kari - thanks. I tried on about 3 pairs of tights before I settled on these. I wish I had some paisley ones to mimic the skirt, but I don't.

Jess - thanks!
