Best of British (part two)

Welcome to the second of my posts featuring fabulous tights from the Marks and Spencer Best of British collection. Of the two pairs I was sent I think this pair is my favourite; they are a bit bolder and more in your face, whilst still remaining office appropriate (although just in case it wasn’t obvious, the outfit in this post wasn’t worn to work!)

I can’t remember the last time anyone saw my hair tied up, to say it was a bad hair day would be putting it lightly, but it did make for a bit of a change even if I did feel super scruffy.

I really liked this outfit, I’ll probably be wearing it quite a lot over the coming months, with a jacket or cardigan as an extra layer as it was more than a teensy bit chilly in the garden when we took these photos. I was so tempted to start scooping up the leaves and throw them around, but a quick think about where Mae does her business put paid to that idea.

I really need some more of these M&S tights in my life, they are the nicest quality and perfect to jazz up my work wardrobe. At under £10 a pair I think they are pretty good value, especially as I’ve worn both designs a few times now and I’m yet to put a hole in them- that’s a true sign of a decent pair of tights if ever there was one.
Only a few more days left of November, I’m feeling super excited for Christmas this year due to not being incapacitated, but it does seem to be sneaking up faster than I thought!
How would you style these tights? How are your Christmas preparations coming along?

    What a groovy 1960s style outfit. Bet it would look amazing with a skinny red polo neck underneath! x

  6. I love this outfit Laura, it’s so cool and the pattern on the tights is really nice – love the way you’ve styled them. – Tasha xxx

  7. I love the Best of British collection, I haven’t tried the tights yet though. I think I may get some for work when I am next in Bath.

  8. Love the tights and boots! I’d probably team them with a chunky knit jumper dress or a black party dress. Christmas is too close! I’m not nearly organised enough! xxx
