Nude Legs in the Winter with Sheer Pantyhose

February 10, 2016

It’s that time of the year. We are all getting tired of our winter clothes and longing for spring. I snagged this adorable velvet jumper on the Gap clearance rack just after Christmas. The material feels like winter, but I couldn’t figure out how to style it. Black or navy tights felt strange, too dark somehow. I was ready for bare legs, but the weather wasn’t cooperating. I never dreamed nude legs in the winter with sheer pantyhose would be an option until I tried the L’eggs version of the tights I love so much (see post here). They were kind enough to send me several colors and options to test out. I ended up wearing the Silken Mist Ultra Sheer Leg in Nude, and you cannot even tell! I used to think nude pantyhose were just for my grandmother, but they have come a long way. I was cracking up when I was trying the options on. There is a “suntan” color which was waayyy too tan for my pasty white self. #DreamOn. These pantyhose are giving my winter outfits new life.

Also, because I feel like I am BFFs with you all, and this is something my BFF would need to know, I found the perfect nude lipstick. I know, monumental, right? In all seriousness, I had been looking for a while, and I am pretty cheap when it comes to makeup. Okay, really cheap. Like I only buy drugstore brands. I tried a couple of the “fancier” brands on but just couldn’t commit. Pinterest lead me to L’Oreal Colour Riche in Fairest Nude. I cannot stop wearing it. Best $6 I’ve spent in a long time. I have been on a little makeup kick lately. My foundation was out, so I was doing some Pinteresting about that too which lead me to Estee Lauder Double Wear. Non-drugstore I know, but I got a small sample of it, and after that there was no going back. It has a long-lasting matte finish. So. Good. It has to be for me to pay the big bucks for it.

Lastly, thank you all so much for your kind words to my post on Monday. My appointment went well, and I got my timeline for moving forward. I won’t start shots until mid-March, so I still have a little while until I’m really in the middle of IVF.

    Beautiful. A very 70s retro look to it. Which is the height of the market right now! As for the tights.. Are they warm?? I’m actually currently wearing some in 20 degree weather and I’m absolutely freezing walking around outside.. Not fair! I’m glad your appt went well.. I can’t imagine how much you’re going thru but you are handling it marvelously..

      Ha, yes they did help with the warmth but I was in 50s the day I wore them not 20s!

    I love how you added that pretty top to your jumper. And I love those boots! By the way, I can’t even tell you’re wearing pantyhose. Love this look!

    You cannot tell you are wearing nylons. I have opted for the nylons this winter to cover up my white legs and for some extra warmth!

    I love the bow blouse coming out of the jumper! I want to look for this lipstick. I don’t usually wear lipstick but I think I could in a nude color (in red I usually feel like a clown 🙂

    Looks great! You’re right that sometimes tights are just too much for an outfit. I’m always looking for good recommendations for nude hose.

    Love, Mary

    Wow I’m so impressed! Even with hose, my legs get so cold! I love how you styled the dress with the blouse underneath!

    Love the floral blouse under the navy dress! The nude tights are perfect with the outfit too, hope they kept you cosy 🙂

    It is exciting having dates for treatment to start – hoping it all goes well for you! 🙂

    This is s a great buy in Gap.
    It doesn’t look you’re wearing a pantyhose.

    I hope everything will go well in your IVF sesh.
