Recently I was thinking it would be nice to add a burgundy/maroon/sangria/wine/marsala/oxblood skirt to my closet when I realized I could wear my dress instead! Susan from Charming Lucy did the same thing earlier this week, too and it turned out super cute. It also gave me the opportunity to try out the pair of tights I received from Kushyfoot. I am a huge tights fan and wear them often so longevity is an important aspect to me. This pair seems to be made well and even have little massaging nubs on the soles for added comfort. I got a size medium and they fit me perfectly so I would suggest sizing up. I also received a pair of fleece lined trouser socks I wore this week. I'll take a whole outfit made of that please! They were so soft and comfortable and stayed put all day (occasionally an issue with my socks). I am looking forward to trying the Flats To Go, too! I often change from my Hunters boots to work shoes once I am at work so I am keeping them in my desk drawer just in case I forget real shoes in my half asleep, muddled state.

Check out my remix for this dress here!

  10. Hahaha. I love the long list of colors that your dress could be considered. It's a bit ridiculous, isn't it? You'll have to let us know how those tights hold up in the long run! I have such a hard time not ripping holes in the toes of my tights!

  20. Such a great idea! You don't need a skirt if you have a dress that works nicely! Camel and burgundy make a beautiful combination :)

  21. Why are there so many names for one color?! I never know what to call it. Sheesh. Great thinking styling your dress as a skirt. I love the sweater color.

  26. Those tights are TOO cute and I wear dresses as skirts quite often! I usually add a sweater, chambray shirt or cardi on top! Love this wine colored skirt!

  27. You found yet another way to wear this gorgeous dress. Looks great with the taupe sweater. Those tights sound great. They look identical to this royal blue pair I own. And I loved that you mentioned all the many names of burgundy lol.
