I heart New Mexico

Anchor Blue flannel; Pacsun tank; Maurices shorts; Target tights and shoes; Truche necklace


And yes, that is the state of New Mexico. Seriously everyone should go and check out Truche right now. Her jewelry is just lovely, and if she doesn't have a state/country that you want (she didn't have New Mexico, for example), she'll do a custom piece for you. And it'll be awesome. So go do it now, so we can all match.

Anyway, I was feeling very Elle-inspired today, so I decided to finally try wearing shorts with tights. And I loved it! The rest of the little town that I live in might have been confused, but oh well.

Oh, and if this shirt looks familiar, it's because I only own so many long-sleeved shirts and it's cold outside. Although I did exchange it for a couple of sizes bigger after wearing it last time. I think I like it better now. I kept the other flannel I have just like it the same size, mostly because I actually took the tags off that one.

Oh! And I did this awesome DIY last night to organize my tights drawer. Expect pictures later. Best idea ever Linley.


  1. Love your necklace. My dad went to UNM and he's been in love with New Mexico ever since. He's even re-doing our house to make it more Adobe like. I've been there once, for the Balloon Festival, but I would like to visit again.
    I'm going to have to try the DIY tights organizer. What a great idea!
    Oh and I bought a Lydia-inspired flannel the other day. :)

  2. That necklace is so, so, so cute. Headed to check out your tights DIY right now.

    Congrats on the job. Are you geting so excited to start?? I'm guessing we're going to get to see lots and lots of profesh style clothing!! Yay.

    Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

  3. AH! LOVE the shout-out! seriously you are too cute. of course i LOVE the shorts with tights...i love that necklace, too! it makes me want to acquire one.

  4. ooooh I have actually been eyeing the New York one over at Truche for awhile now. Jealous!

    And that tights idea is genius! I might have to give that a try...


  5. that necklace is fabulous. i had one for NC, but the metal piece make my neck break out - bummer. and love your cut offs. i'm soon going to take a pair of scissors to my old jeans.

    thanks for the shout out! SO glad my DIY worked for you!! (:

  6. i get so many funny looks around my town whenever i wear tights with shorts. it doesn't seem that odd to me (probably b/c i read a ton of style blogs), but clearly the folks in my locale think it's odd.

  7. I love that flannel. You can't go wrong wearing that any day of the week.

    And AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME necklace. So glad you linked it!!

  8. I love this outfit!! Its so cute! Ugh, I've been wanting to try shorts with tights all winter, but I was looking for a pair of wool shorts, but duh, I could wear my denim and khaki shorts too! Haha, thanks! Oh, and that's an awesome idea about the tights drawer! And don't worry about odd looks, your outfits too cute! :)

  9. I'm a big fan of tights with shorts, and I LOVE how you've done it in such a chic, laid-back way. Hooray for plaid flannel shirts!

  10. I saw this and it made me think of Elle. You did her proud, I'm sure.
    Also, I really like that necklace...I should get one for each of the three states important to me. I can wear them like a charm necklace...

  11. You look gorgeous! And the necklace is great!

  12. Oh my goodness, I want a state necklace too!! SO AWESOME.

    And good job with the shorts and tights combo. Looks really good on you! I've yet to try it out since I don't own any denim or wintery shorts. :( Hopefully that'll change soon!

    And I totally want some flannel. like SO BAD.

  13. I love the shorts with tights look! Kyla {Blue Collar Catwalk} inspired me to try it out. Also, I heart New Mexico. Really, I do. I spent two summers working at a camp near-ish to Gallup and it was an amazing experience for me.


  14. I wish it was warm enough for me to wear shorts and tights! I love the look!

  15. Love the tights and shorts. Makes me wish I was lovin' New Mexico too!

    Thanks for the link to the tights drawer DIY. I definetly see some organizing in my future.

  16. You are too pretty! I love the shorts with tights look. Great flannel, too!
