Smelling of flowers
I came up smelling of flowers today. Two trips to the pub for us.
Got together for lunch in Lincolnshire with friends and then in the evening, drinks in a local pub.
These tights brought out the good weather so are highly recommended.
Jonathan Aston “blossom”. As the autumnal season is about to start I put on a spring themed pattern. Am I wishing time away or what.
When I initially opened the pack I was a bit worried. The tights looked really long but once on, they were fine and comfortable as you can see.
¡Vamos Tienga! What prizes did the winners and runner ups receive from being marvellous hosiery? The answer to that is they get worn again and I plan their wear in a very precise and meticulous way.
¡Vamos Tienga! has a double meaning today. First being Let’s go Tienga, let’s make this day worthwhile and joyful. The second there’s a hole in my beloved Tienga and so I will have to let them go at the end of today. Jonathan Aston Tienga tights was first featured in the first month of Hose Of Fun and made such a good impression that I wore them again in April Tienga!
The reason they were winners? The pattern. It’s clearly defined and visible. It’s unusual and has pizzazz. The tights look quite long before I put them on, so long I worry that they’ll be excess and I’ll have bunching around the ankles and not enough stretch to see the pattern. As you can see this pair of hosiery does no such thing. They have impressed me each time I’ve worn them and it is with great sadness that today will be their last.
Tienga tights by Jonathan Aston are becoming my favourite tights. This season I’ve worn them three times! Today, back in November when I only just mentioned a repeat wear and then way, way back at the beginning of the season in September when it was a new wear.
I stand by my original thoughts and the pattern is absolutely fab! What can I say? They catch the eye. The pattern is clear and different and fun. They’re comfortable, don’t slip or move, aren’t too tight around my belly and they have a good grip on the legs which make them so sturdy. I always do a double take when I see my reflection and to be honest I even look just for the sake of it!
Red-Seamed Polka Dot Tights from Jonathan Aston
Polka dot tights are my tights of the day today. Jonathan Aston red-seamed nude hosiery. There is a slight shimmer to them which adds to the glam. I’ve had these for a while but couldn’t find an occasion to wear them, but it seems that seamed tights are in, so the world is my oyster.
Natural Fishnet Holdups
Today’s tights of the day is a pair of natural fishnet holdups with a floral lace top by Jonathan Aston. I think the colour of these are a bit different to what I normally wear so a good change. It’s also quite fun to trick people into thinking they’re a pair of nude tights when actually they’re quite fancy on closer inspection. One of the drawbacks of looking for fancy tights in the bargain bin is that I’m concentrating on size rather than colour but this way I get an unusual variety of designs and colours.
#All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey. California dreaming, on a winter’s day# A pair of Jonathan Aston called Innocent in nude and black to reflect the changing of the seasons. Very Autumn. Don’t really know how the name and design go together but if I lie in a pile of leaves I’d disappear.
Sorry shoes don’t match packaging photo.
Jonathan Aston Tienga
Jonathan Aston, tienga, tights: black and spotty.
Hope you can see packaging and the real life effect. I’m pleased with the result. Fantastic definition of pattern, clear and distinct. I sometimes find with some tights that the pattern looks great so long as the material is stretched. That means that around my thighs they look brilliant and around my ankles it’s not so bold. With these, the pattern is all the way. Thumbs up from me!
