I bought this skirt last weekend while at LOFT with my girlfriend & as I was trying it on & brainstorming ways to style it, she was like "This skirt would make a great blog post!! How to wear a skirt in the fall!" SO here I am, taking that idea and running with it. (Thanks Bri!) 

When the weather gets cold, & I mean really cold, I end up throwing on jeans & a sweater everyday.  But fall is my favorite type of weather because the weather is so temperate. I can wear a sweater one day & a dress the next. I can play with layering & fall accessories for styling purposes more than for warmth! So when it came to styling this skirt for fall, my mind went in a million different directions: should I pair it with a sweater? OTK boots? a leather jacket? All of these styling ideas are fantastic (& will most likely be worn at some point later on!) but on this particular day, I wanted to accessorize my skirt with a pair of fun tights. 

Not only are Berkshire tights great quality, they also have a ton of fun prints. Of course I have classic pairs of solid black, but I also have polka dots, diamonds & stripes! They are such a fun way to accessorize a fall outfit! I love the way printed tights act as an entirely new element in an outfit. With bare legs, this outfit may have been borderline pretty but the tights totally make it edgier. I thought about wearing polka dot tights to accentuate the buttons on my skirt but opted for stripes to elongate my legs. What do you guys think?

I haven't seen Jody all week (Right now, his new job is causing us to have opposite schedules during the week...boooo) so I am extra excited for the weekend & to spend time together! Hope you all have great weekends!
