My love affair with skirts and dresses in inappropriate weather is made possible due to a large selection of tights. Textured, sleek, opaque or sheer – the right pair of tights can elevate an outfit instead of it appearing as if you’re wearing tights just for the sake of the weather. Stockings are a staple in most wardrobes but little to no thought are really given to how their made and whether they’re made to last.
Like most women, I find that a pair of tights never last me long – within the first few wears I inevitably manage to snag through the delicate material resulting in a run leaving me with no option but to discard and repurchase, time and time again. I decided to see if Swedish Stockings could replace the dozens of pairs of stockings I have purchased in the past. I didn’t realize how low my exceptions for stockings were before getting a pair of Swedish Stockings.
I know, I know - this is long overdue (and this doesn't even include this month). I kept forgetting to post my "purchases" because truth be told I didn't do much shopping the past couple of months. Instead I received a lot of eco-friendly goodies in the mail that I wanted to do product reviews on instead. Nonetheless, better late than never.

The last couple of months I have been in serious closet-purging mode for the blogger sale which has given me the opportunity to reevaluate the measure of how I deem something worth keeping in my wardrobe. What I was left with was a wardrobe that mostly consisted of preloved garments purchased at consignments or thrift stores.

DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?
I’ve learned through constant self-evaluation that I’m starting to gain a better understanding of who I am but because my surroundings and perspectives of them are ever changing it’s hard to give a definitive ‘yes’ or ‘no’. As I go through more experiences I have a better understanding of who I’m not shaping way for me to, hopefully, understanding who I am.
