accordingtoannika 's Thoughts:

Please check out all of the photos of this outfit here!

After weeks and weeks of constant sunshine, the Swedish summer weather is now officially back to normal. Which means weird. Yesterday, it was all over the place – sunny one minute, rain the next, followed by thunder and lightning – or, as in the umbrella photo, warm and sunny and pouring rain.

I haven’t worn this dress nearly as much as I should have, considering the money I spent on it. I bought it a few years back for this huge award show party I was attending, but two minutes before I left the apartment, I changed my mind and put on another one. In the cab, I was extremely annoyed with myself – you buy a dress you can’t afford because it’s sooo important to look fab and fancy at this thing, and then you go and put on a dress you’ve had forever?! – but when I got to the party, I realized it was faith: this gorgeous fashion celebrity, the star of the award show, was wearing the exact same dress as the one I’d left at home. The only difference was that she looked about a thousand times better in hers than I had done in mine (and I’m not exaggerating, she’s just that gorgeous)! Needless to say, I was pretty relieved not having to walk the red carpet looking like her awkward wannabe twin.

The very unusual warm weather has also had the effect that you guys don’t know about my obsession with socks and tights. When you live this far up North, you sort of have to have a thing for them, since the bare-legged season normally lasts for about two weeks. I’ve got so many drawers full of legwear in every possible color and print, which you might be made very aware of when the cold weather decides to come back! Plus, fun socks and tights are a perfect way to make your outfits way more interesting without spending a lot of money.

These black and white graphic print tights are from this tiny lingerie boutique I happened to walk into while living in Berlin, and I just think they’re fantastic. And I can’t believe they’re still in such good shape – I must have worn them fifty times over the years and put them through far too many machine washes, and they’re as whole as when I got them. Usually, I’ll rip a pair if not the first time I wear them, so at least the second or third. Which isn’t that big of a problem for me – I just pretend like I’m going for the punk look or something, haha!

Those tights are awesome, but I'd probably pair them with something a bit more plain. Lovely pieces you have there! And your skin & makeup rocks. Chic +1 voted! xox
