Legs like a carrot

I had this vision of an outfit when I woke up this morning -- lots of gray and some warm tones for punctuation; something maroon or rust. And, in my head, these tights were... different. Namely, not bright, bright, bright, oh-my-god-I'm-blind bright orange. I swear, when I got these at Target a few weeks ago, they seemed more pumpkin spice than traffic cone. Target! Why must you trick me like this? Well, joke's on you, because when I was traveling in Europe two summers ago and took fashion notes, "legs like a carrot" was high on my to-do list. We can question the merits of this goal later -- what's important is that I'm achieving successes here, people.

Also, apparently it's Christmas Eve or something? So if you're celebrating, I hope it's lovely -- and if you're not, enjoy the Chinese food and nearly empty movie theaters! Please send me some bagels; it's kind of an emergency.
