A Little Peek of Fishnet

January 25, 2021

It’s a cold and rainy start to the week here in California.  This outfit is the result of me trying to spice up my usual winter uniform, a turtleneck and jeans.


Everlane's Super Soft Jeans

I’m wearing my Super Soft Relaxed Jeans (read review) and decided that I’d add a little peek of fishnet tights underneath.  Would you wear this look?  I tried to keep the rest of the outfit more classic, so that the fishnets wouldn’t look … umm …trampy? Ha!  I added a red leopard bag for a pop of color as well. Converse sneakers and silver hoop earrings are more of my favorites, completing this look.

Do you have a winter uniform? Do you ever add something unexpected to perk it up a bit?  Let us know in the comments below.

I might be back with another post this week. I have some more fun new things to share!  We’ll see how the week of teaching goes … and if there’s a break in the rain for photos!

    I seriously LOVE your outfit! I too work at a highschool and I always think I am too old to wear some of the things I wear… but I like them! Your post inspired me to keep on keepin’ on! (I am 40 btw)
