Sunday Style, and New Polka Dot Tights

The weather was so nice this weekend, that it was the perfect opportunity to wear this lightweight velvet blazer of mine, since I didn’t have to wear a coat over it. You can see in the photo above that it was a bit windy though- the feathers in my hat are blowing all over the place!

The colour scheme for my outfit came from the hat- a cream wool cap topped with black and white feathers, and kind of went from there. Sometimes hats can kind of be an afterthought, but often I find when I choose accessories- such as my jacket, shoes or hat first, the rest of the outfit comes together a bit more easily and more coordinated.

I just ordered these seamed polka-dot tights from What Katie Did, and this was my first time wearing them. I love the quality of their lingerie. Did you know that their stockings and tights are knitted on one of the few vintage knitting machines left in Italy that were used after WWII? These polka dot tights were lovely to wear and added a bit of fun to my outfit, although it is always tricky getting the seams straight!

Well, I was glad for this chance to wear a lighter outfit, since the temperature will drop again and we’ll be back to warm winter coats!
