Nope, these aren't tights but over-the-knee(OTK) socks! And the reason behind the title of this post.
I'm not just showing off some upper thigh for shock value, but instead to highlight another case of transitional outfitting, like in this post last week. Since the mornings are cooler and (as always) office AC is frigid, instead of full-on tights, these socks provide coverage and are much easier to slip-off and on as the day progresses.

True, this look is not setting the world on fire as yesterday's dress did, but you can't bring the "wow" with every outfit. This knit dress and open vest DID however fit and function during my midweek slump at work, I feel like Tuesdays are the cruelest day of the week, while Thursdays are the best! Why, you may ask? Because on Tuesday you realize how LONG the week is going to be, after the initial rush of "getting back into it" on Monday. Plus Tuesdays are kind of boring, no? While Thursdays have ALL of the anticipation of the weekend. On Thursday ANYTHING can happen.
