Black and Gray for Days


Just a little black and gray outfit today.

Perfect for days when you’re so over winter and wishing for spring, which I think all of us in the Midwest have reached that point this week, and it definitely doesn’t help that it actually felt like spring on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

I’ve also been wearing these tights into the ground this week (along with these ankle boots that were the perfect Christmas present from The Husband). Merona opaque tights are my favorite tights in the whole wide world, and they’re currently on sale online. I highly recommend you check them out. I have them in black, navy, and burgundy, and I’m trying to debate whether or not to add gray into the mix!


  • Leather and Pearls?! Omg I love it. Merona does make the best tights. I gave up on all other brands. I’m so happy that there is a color variety now and I’m not limited to just black tights from Merona.

    All kinds of cuteness. P.S. What kind of camera do you use? I’m thinking of upgrading to DSLR. I need one for dummies. Not going to say whether the dummy is me or Kristin.

    • Hahahaha. I use a Sony-NEX 5TL (, and I love it! It’s not a DSLR, but a compact interchangeable lens. I got it because I didn’t want to lug around a DSLR on vacation, and I knew this would be used for both the blog and for vacations (the only time I really take photos!). It is awesome because the screen flips/rotates (for selfies and so the subject can see the shot) and it can be remote activated, so I actually take all my own photos. I bought mine used, because it is pricey! Then once I figured out I wanted to keep blogging, I invested in the 50/1.8 lens for it (also bought used –, so I could get those blurry backgrounds! I still need to play around with it, but that’s a project for spring/summer, when I’m not freezing.

      Such a long response. Hope that helps, and let me know if you want to meet up to see how it does!

  • Those boots are AMAZING! What a great gift!
