A whole afternoon of planning

I spent a whole afternoon planning an outfit and then the hosiery wearers worse nightmare happened.

My outfit was going to be something dark with any choice of blackish tights. As the afternoon went by my memory recalled a pair of tan shoes that I’d never worn. I had to change my dress choice.

I opted for a purple and beige dress and hunted for a tan background pair of tights. There weren’t that many so my shopping list now has included patterned tanned hosiery.

I chose a Jonathan Aston leaf pattern which matched brilliantly with the florals on the dress. Pretty chuffed with the results I showed my husband. All smiles but after a twirl his beady eye caught sight of the hosiery wearer’s nightmare… ladders!

All the way from my toes to above the knee! Oh no!!

I had to then start scavenging for another tan based tights and it took me ages to find the last pair. Finally I settled for this floral number.
