Really Obsessed With: Wool Skinnies

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

It seems that whenever fall rolls around, fashion houses everywhere "discover" that grey is hot for the season, tights and stockings are (gasp) the perfect way to wear skirts without freezing to death, and thick fabrics like wool and tweed look so refreshing when contrasted lighter materials (NO WAYalkdjgkj). But, while these new “trends” may not be completely fresh, it is refreshing to pack away those tired summer dresses and start layering. As prompted by cutie-pie LC from Fops and Dandies, and Lela Rose’s Fall ’08 line, I’m kind of on the lookout for that perfect pair of wool skinnies (it’d be a nice change from all those wide legged wool trousers—plus, I’m too short to wear anything beyond a bootcut). Stay smart by making sure it cuts right at the ankle.

hey, that's me!

those are actually Cheap Mondays that are this odd brown/grey color with gold flecks. i got them on sale for $30, so maybe you can get your hands on some, too, without having to suffer in the heat sweating in wool pants.

I love this look! It's more classic than the traditional skinny jean
