Crochet Skirt & Tucked In Cardigan

I lost my plain black tights a while back and hadn't gotten around to buying a new pair until now :) After I lost them I had to keep wearing my leopard tights or suspender tights, but I didn't think it was subtle enough for work. Then, Winners was having a sale on a 3-pack of Anna Sui tights (1 decorative, 2 plain black) for $15, so I quickly snatched them up.

At first, I didn't think tights would work with this crochet skirt I bought on my adventures in Barcelona, but when I tried them on together I realized the skirt was meant for more than just spring and summer wear. This skirt was originally too big at the waist, even at as an XS, so my mother dearest altered it for me :) Now it fits perfectly!

Zara cardigan; Seductions v-neck; MNG by Mango crochet skirt (similar);
Anna Sui tights; Ann Taylor pumps (here)
To show off the crochet detailing of the skirt even more, I tucked in my cardi instead of leaving it out. This burgandy cardigan has quickly made my fall/winter favourites list (seen here and here), but somehow it always reminds me of my high school uniform.

If you've ever been to private school and worn a uniform, you know what I mean when I say the colour stays with you forever. Every time you see that colour you think right back to your uniform. My school had maroon sweaters which we had to wear everyday, until grade 12, where we switched to a white open cardigan with maroon trim instead. Maybe I should use it for an outfit photo...

Oddly enough, we had navy knee high socks the same colour as my crochet skirt. I didn't even realize how closely my outfit today resembles my high school uniform colours until now o____0.

But... the skirt is so pretty! The detailing is so nice :)
