Bright Tights

Vest TJ Maxx, Top Stylemint, Skirt Forever21 (similar style here), Tights Forever21, Booties Modern Vintage, Bracelet Jewelmint

I had the most AMAZING birthday weekend ever! It started off at my favorite little spot in Lodi called Phillips Farms, where Thomas and I had brunch and mimosas. I spent the rest of the weekend in SF with my friends, family, and fiancé shopping, eating, drinking, and having a wonderful time.

On my birthday, I wore my favorite Stylemint Lenox T-shirt and Black Swan Jewelmint cuff. I paired it with the faux fur and knit vest that I got from TJ Maxx, my fave leather skirt and these maroon colored tights! Thomas got me this new lens for my birthday. Can you tell the difference in my photos?

Sounds like you had a lovely birthday and your fiance is so sweet to have gotten you a new lens! I've been looking for a pair of tights that exact colour… they're perfect for Fall.
