One reason why I despise winter? Getting pale! Back in high school, and even college, I went to tanning beds a ton.Plus, I lived in California until the end of my junior year (of high school), so I always felt tan. Now that so many people have come forward about their skin cancer linked to tanning beds, I am terrified of them. Pale it is.
Also, I'm just not that into tights. They itch. It seems like they are winter essential in cold climates, though. It might be time to mature and act like a big girl and just buy a nice pair to wear with my dresses. Last weekend, to compensate for the snowy death by wind, I wore a maxi skirt with leggings underneath to church. It was heavenly, but not so fashionable. I think tights could fix this. Good thing the day I took these pictures in this adorable plaid Shabby Apple dress, it was actually on the warmer side. It was about 50 degrees out, which is quite manageable in Utah!
The dresses from Shabby Apple are always gorgeous and so unique to what you might find in a typical department store. I wanted to give a holiday feel to the black and white plaid, so I paired it with my only red shoes and a dark green faux leather jacket. The best part of this dress has to be the tie front. It really helps show off the figure by pulling in the waist. You better believe I will be wearing this to the next Christmas party!
