(Hanky Panky Lace Thong, Express Opaque Tights, Maison Scotch Lace Bralette)

I'm always showing you the fit of the clothes I am wearing, but I leave out one important area.  What you wear underneath your clothes matters as much as what you wear on the outside.  You have to be comfortable and feel like yourself in the underwear, bra, and tights you choose to wear.  In these photos taken at the Trump Hotel in Chicago I am wearing some of my favorite lingerie pieces. 

This Maison Scotch lace bralette I am wearing is no longer available, but I swear it is the bra that I always choose to wear when I need one.  Often times I go without a bra since I don't really need one.  This bra is great underneath non-sheer tops or sweaters.  I even wear it under white tops.  It also looks cool in the summer peeking out from oversized tanks.  Bras can almost be seen as accessories to your looks, especially in the summer if you let them show a little.  I found another bra that is quite similar to this one here.

The underwear that I always choose to wear are Hanky Panky lace thongs.  They are so comfortable and I don't really notice them.  I usually purchase them in the taupe or cappuccino color because that color matches my skin tone and is great for underneath sheer or white pieces of clothing.  Hanky Panky thongs are made in the USA as well.  You won't even notice you are wearing them.  I have tried to get into boyshorts, but I don't like how they look on my butt and I feel like they move around too much.

On my legs are the only opaque tights you need this season.  These Express tights are the best ones I have found.  I get some Wolford tights once in a while, but they are so expensive for tights and I feel they are more delicate.  The Express tights are very durable and I have yet to get a snag or run in any pair.  I stock up every season in case they quit making them.

I ran all over Las Vegas during the day in this oufit to shop, but we never managed to get photos in it so I wore it again once we got back home to Denver.  It was the perfect 80 degree day.  This Elizabeth and James square tee was basically a lifesaver and I wore it over and over again, combining it with Abercrombie & Fitch sweatpants on the plane, J Brand jeans for breakfast, and of course denim shorts and tights.  I love how huge it is and the big arm holes tend to not restrict my movement too much.  It is also sheer so I can show off my little leopard print lace bralette underneath. 

My boyfriend bought me these awesome blue sunglasses from the Chanel boutique in Las Vegas.  I fell in love with the color.  I was originally looking for a black pair, but of course you never find what you are looking for.  He also bought me this Chanel necklace.  We have a tradition during our travels of buying at least one Chanel necklace during each trip.  I can remember what city we bought all the necklaces in, but this one is sorta different from the rest of my collection because it is black.  It is going to accessorize so many casual outfits and also some dressy ones.  I love my white pearl necklaces, but sometimes it is difficult to utilize them with everyday ensembles. 

This suede bucket bag was a neat little sale find off of Shopbop.  I really liked the colors and pattern on it and the fact that it was tiny.  It is perfect for the small amount of things I end up carrying around during the day.  The brand is called Something Else and I find it to be pretty good quality.  This bag will also be great for accessorizing my casual outfits.

This is one of my casual bohemian outfits.  I lived in this Nightcap Clothing motif vest last summer, throwing it on over all of my tanks.  It has huge pockets and leather fringe.  I can never resist fringe.  You can wear this vest upside down as well if that makes any sense, changing the V of the leather cutout back to point up instead of down.  I will wear it that way next time.  The last time I wore this vest was last summer in Aspen shopping with my friend Christina.  It has some good memories.  Nightcap Clothing has always been one of my favorite brands.  I was surprised that this vest got marked down so much since I find it pretty irresistible. 

I paired it with this RVCA ribbed tank dress that you have seen me wearing before on Fashion Snag.  In fact, last time I wore this I paired it with yet another fringe vest, a leather one by Of Two Minds.  It is a great basic tank dress to have in your closet, but a little bit sheer so I wore my leopard bralette from Hanky Panky underneath.  This little bra was pretty cheap at Shopbop and it is ultra comfy.  You cannot go wrong with Hanky Panky lingerie.  It is all comfortable. 

The Rick Owens ribbed wool leggings were a snag during the Christmas sales at Net-a-Porter.  They are oh so soft and very stretchy.  The seam detailing is amazing.  They are a little sheer so I wore the longer tank dress by RVCA to cover my butt.  Sometimes wool can be itchy, but I guess the wool in Italy is a little different if you know what I mean.  I wore a long tassel necklace by R.J. Graziano that I wore before on the blog with a leather fringed vest.  This necklace is a great costume piece of jewelry that you can mix and match with many things.  I always like to have plenty of fun jewelry to spice up my outfits.  I feel like the fringe on the necklace matches the fringe on the vest and I am okay with that since I like fringe so much.  R.J. Graziano makes some great quality pieces and you can usually find a sale on Gilt so make sure to join. 

Last but certainly not least, I wore my Brian Atwood mauve suede slouchy button back ankle boots.  They are almost a light pink color and very different from my other shoes.  They remind me of something an 80s Barbie might wear.  They have a button in the back so I think you can unbutton it and wear the shoes with a little less slouch.  I will have to try that next time. I snagged these on the Outnet and I wore them before on the blog with Nightcap Clothing lace inset leggings.
