Mercer Herringbone Tight Size PXS
Is everyone ready for Christmas? Two sleeps away! One sleep if you're reading this tomorrow morning. I'm pretty much set. It will be a low key Christmas celebration for us. Husband will be cooking a Christmas dinner and we'll spend time with our 5 cats. They have a couple of new toys. I'm pretty excited since this is their first Christmas with us! Maybe I can get one to pose with a Santa hat. 😆
The lighting was kind of poor when I took these photos, so if it looks a little muddy, that's why. I tried brightening them up in my photo app, but it's not the sharpest. These tights are a great alternative to wearing pants at the office. I actually have the navy pair and wear them pretty often. I will admit the gray doesn't look as sharp as the navy. If you're trying to decide between the two colors, I definitely prefer the navy. In fact here's a review of the navy version. The ankle has a front slit that adds a nice detail to set these apart from regular tights. There's a side pocket to stash your phone, although I never use it.
I love that these have a stretchy waistband that sits at the belly button. They are quite form fitting all around but flare out slightly at the ankles. I'm wearing booties with these, but they would look better with a pump. Unfortunately my pair of pumps are at work. And yes, I only have three pairs of work shoes. (I am waaaaay more of a sneaker or boots gal.)
Pairing it with the Transformation Wrap
Next up, I had high hopes for the Criss Cross Back Hoodie Sweatshirt but it really was not flattering on me. It was sooooo super comfy and soft but I thought it just looked a bit frumpy on me. The sleeves are way too long. It was a quick pass for me.
It's very loose fitting but just looks shapeless and baggy. Doesn't look cute like it does on the model. Kind of made me sad!
