Wool-n’t you be my neighbor?

It’s not a beautiful day in this neighborhood because my throat is covered in phlegm and misery and I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten enough Berliners to not fit in my jeans anymore. I did this to myself.

I showed my German boyfriend the beginning of a “Mister Roger’s Neighborhood” episode and turned back into a 4-year-old as the trolley rolled into Mister Roger’s living room. We’ve had fun sharing the TV shows, candy and toys we liked as kids, since we grew up in two very different cultures.

But I subconsciously channeled Mister Roger in today’s outfit.

Over-the-knee tights are a gift to those who have dealt with the absolute annoyance of their socks rolling down. I learned the trick is to use sock glue (this is my personal favorite) but the tights are killing it for winter. You get the illusion of socks, but also butt and thigh warmth. This H&M pair has a pretty thick control top, and are a much better quality than the ones at Urban Outfitters.

    Poor baby, I hope you feel better soon. If it’s any consolation, you look great!
