Colonial Times

Knickers and tights have been worn ever since ye Colonial Times! Although my knickers are actually shorts and my tights are black, it's almost exactly the same...right. I just needed a creative title for this post.
I know the shorts and tights look is a bit risky because you are verging on bad eighties/early nineties or just childish, I can't decide. Despite the angle of this picture, the tights under shorts were very slimming and very cute. I think this might be a good transition from summer into fall when the weather can be misleading—80 degrees during the day and 50 degrees at night. I threw on my maroon velvet jacket with gold buttons to complete the look and continue with the whole colonial theme. I don't think I can wear shorts to work even with tights, but this is a different look for a nighttime outing—maybe to a movie or play or better yet, a reanactment of the Boston Tea Party.
