When we went to the markets on Sunday, it was the perfect opportunity to test out my new Autograph leggings. A bright blue {purple even} they can add that little something to any outfit. Especially when it comes to my wardrobe based so firmly in monochrome’ville. I was ridiculously excited to wear them. You can tell because this outfit was put together before 7am. Technically it’s almost leggings as pants. I missed it by an inch or two. Take that fashion rules.

As far as Winter goes, I wear a lot of my rest of the year wardrobe but with leggings or a jacket. Gympie gets about a month of really cold weather and two months of sort of crisp weather. There’s no need to invest in lots of winter specific clothing, so layers are what it is all about. With this outfit for example, by the time we got home from the markets, it was warm enough to ditch the top cardie.

Yes, the last photo is supposed to be funny. This is my best rock star/serious model pose. It might need work. But it does show off the leggings beautifully, don’t you think. Leggings were a gift of the brand. The rest was purchased by me. Please refer to my disclosure policy on the PR page for more information.

    Your Rock Star pose needs a big chuncky necklace with attitude or big crazy earrings. Love the bright colours. I wear bright purple stockings with my boots and looooove the flash of bright colour. rock on x

    I love colour. I’m all into coloured and pattern thighs at the moment.
    Those leggings are an awesome colour.
    Rock it out Suger.

      Such an awesome colour! Loving colours for winter this year. I’m breaking all the rules. 😉

      • My Vintage Vow

        Me too,mwith breaking the rules.
        I’m even doing stripes and florals together.
        I’m taking even more risks than I have ever before lately.
        It’s fun.

        • Melissa Walker Horn

          Such great news! Stripes and florals, sound fab!

  • Sarah

    You ARE a rockstar in those tights! They really are great on you. I actually had them in the online basket but just couldn’t click the buy button. Non buyers remorse!

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      Thanks Sarah. They are beautiful one. Soft, good coverage. I was happy. I’m getting more colours.

  • Love that last pic 🙂 I defintely need to invest in some coloured leggings, I have a cute tube skirt that I can bring into winter with some leggings – it’s black so it needs some contrast. 

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      That’s my plan. For standard sizing coloured tights, try We Love Colours. A lot of ladies I know swear by their stuff.

      • Thanks, I’ll check em out.
