My black hearts

I'm abandoning my homework and some engagement photos I should be editing right now to post the look I promised you yesterday. It took a few pleas to get my boyfriend away from his skateboarding game and into the crispy cold afternoon for the shots, but in the end he always comes through; he may whine, but he'll definitely come through!

I know I told you I doubled up my tights for added warmth, but I removed the bottom layer for the pictures so you could see my new sheer heart tights from Tabio. I almost ordered them a few months ago but got distracted before completing my purchase, and instead of giving the transaction another attempt I lived in envy of all the girls who got to wear them. I figured it was about time to treat myself to a pair! The bow necklace was an idea that kind of fell out of the sky right before walking out the door. I immediately thought of this girl.

this is such a beautiful outfit Starr! I would steal everything from you and wear it too!

Adore adore your comfy sweater top with those shorts. Ahhhh,the sheer tights are too die for. LOVE mini hearts on tights or those dotted ones as well.
The coat you wore just finishes the classic look off.

Wooo and the bow you added to that necklace spark off an idea for me to do to the same to a floral bow that I left lying around.

big hugssss
