Funky Legs Friday

Happy Halloween! This is part of my witchy woman outfit. I can't really call it a costume, because it's my normal clothing. Just witched up a bit.

About Funky Legs Friday...
I need a little fun in my life right now. SO, let's talk about tights.

Here's the deal - I like wearing skirts, and I like to wear them year-round. My lifestyle is such that I walk a lot, even in cooler weather, and so I'm always looking for fun and functional legwear. My rebel/playful side comes out in this realm. To add a little spunk to my week, I'm starting Funky Leg Friday! Each Friday through November, I'll show a pair of gams in funky leg coverings.

The tights in the picture above are wonderful! They feel like a soft, crocheted shawl. They're a rayon/nylon/spandex blend that feels like cotton. They're heavier and warmer than the typical tight. They remind me of the material from little girls' tights. I got them at Target, which has, by the way, quite a selection of cool tights these days.

I hope you're enjoying Halloween! I'll try not to eat too much candy.

You make yourself sound a little like a witch, which you are far from being! :) Love the legs though. And I like your photos in your topper. Very you! :)

Love the tights and the skirt, now show us the rest of the Halloween costume.

Maybe I will be brave one of these days and show you my tights. They have snow flakes on them; so it needs to be more wintery.

Kate and I checked out these very tights yesterday. They weren't "Nancy Drew" enough for her Halloween getup, but we did admire them, even in the packaging. MUCH more admirable on your gams. Mary

I love tights too. I promised to wear more skirts just so I can show off my new tights. We don't have Target here yet, I've heard they're wonderful.

I really like your funky legs! Funky Leg Friday reminds me of "Senior Sock Day." At my Catholic high school, seniors were allowed to wear whatever socks they wanted to on Fridays . . . with patterns and such, not just navy or white. Really wild, huh? Tee hee. It seemed like such a perk at the time!
