You know it's winter when you have to start wearing tights with all of your skirts!

Fair warning boys: this post isn't for you! Tights are awkward and weird and you probably aren't interested in what I have to say about them ;)
Raise your hand if you hate tights. Yep? We're all raising our hands? Okay great....
So now that we're all on the same page, here's my trick: control top. Yes, they act as a little gut sucker (or that's their intention at least) but I rely on this little feature to keep my tights up all day! I have the hardest time with tights stretching out, sagging, and slipping down to get baggy around my ankles. Weird! Until I discovered these babies. They call them Star Power for a reason! Go get yourself a pair because tights are the only way I can continue to wear skirts in the winter. Brr!
I hate having to buy new tights every season because they snag and get holes and loose their elasticity and yada yada... normally I wouldn't shell out more than $5 a pair but with this quality and fit it's worth it! They also don't snag as easily because the fabric is so smooth (which means you won't pay $5 every week to buy a new pair haha).
Side note: I layered these two necklaces last year and it was a big hit! I love how pairing two statement necklaces together creates a whole new statement :) I need to play around with my jewelry and find more combos... any suggestions?
