When it's really cold outside and you're piling on the layers, do you ever feel like Joey on Friends? That's how I felt in the first photo. My shirt is tucked into my skirt, my sweater is folded under, plus the leggings, plus boots. Not to mention the coat and gloves that would go over it. Do you think I also look like I have navy blue skin? I've noticed when you wear tights and a matching sleeve (or undershirt) it can create an illusion like it's your skin peeking through. (Duh moment: heather gray leggings may have looked better and solved this dilemma.) Instead I switched over to pumps to show a fall/spring version of this look!
