Work half a day + Shopping with my mother and sister + Dinner and movie date with my boyfriend.

Some of you have asked me how I managed to wear tights in a country as hot as Panama. Well, I only wear them on days that I know I will be indoors most of the day. In Panama, most places are air conditioned (and when I say most I really mean all of them). So wearing tights is quite acceptable.

Plus, I try to wear tights mostly at night where the weather is cooler. During the day, I wear a different version of the same outfit that is cooler and more weather appropriate. Today for example, I wore this outfit to go shopping:

Today's outfit was actually inspired by an outfit by Jessica from What I Wore. I really loved the idea of wearing colored tights with shoes of the same color; so I did the same with my burgundy tights and burgundy pumps! I like how this trick elongates my legs.
Inspired By - What I Wore

Do you ever wear colored tights with shoes of the same color?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this polka dot dress:
