Bright Tights

Vest TJ Maxx, Top Stylemint, Skirt Forever21 (similar style here), Tights Forever21, Booties Modern Vintage, Bracelet Jewelmint

I had the most AMAZING birthday weekend ever! It started off at my favorite little spot in Lodi called Phillips Farms, where Thomas and I had brunch and mimosas. I spent the rest of the weekend in SF with my friends, family, and fiancĂ© shopping, eating, drinking, and having a wonderful time. 
On my birthday, I wore my favorite Stylemint Lenox T-shirt and Black Swan Jewelmint cuff. I paired it with the faux fur and knit vest that I got from TJ Maxx, my fave leather skirt and these maroon colored tights! Thomas got me this new lens for my birthday. Can you tell the difference in my photos?
