Let’s welcome a new business to the blog! I have followed this company for years (they’re not new but new to my platforms) and we decided to do a collab! I have always wanted to try out their pieces, and I finally have my hands on some amazing pieces to try out! I have not come across some of these styles before, so I am super excited!

I wanted to go super cute with my look today, so I decided to pair up my white chiffon cami top with my gingham blue ruffle skirt and add some of my pom pom sandals. You could easily change the heels to something else, but I thought this was such a cute look!

Getting Them On: I did my scrunch and roll from the toes to the thighs, making sure I took care going over my anklets. I did take my time getting these up the legs just to make sure I wasn’t tugging it up too much.
On The Legs: how adorable do these look?! I am in love with this whole look, and the tights just bring the whole thing together perfectly! I wanted to create such a cute and simple look, and these tights were just the pair I needed to achieve that. They are super subtle however they still bring a lot to the outfit, which I really like. I haven’t done a pair like this before (with a nude base and white polka dots) – I am super glad that these are now in my life!
The quality of this pair is great; they went the day without any damages occurring (which I am super happy with!) I was in them all day and the amount of near misses was unreal! These have a great amount of stretch for my leg length and size, which meant I got a great hug to the legs!
The fit of these were true to size, and I didn’t have any issues at all. I would recommend checking out the sizing guide before purchasing just to make sure you’re getting the right size.
The feel of these are really nice, and they suit my skin tone well. They did lighten it slightly, but it isn’t something that bugged me to be fair. The polka dots were slightly raised so you will feel them when you run your hands down your legs, otherwise these are great. They don’t irritate the legs in any way – overall I am happy!
The Toes & Ankle: I don’t think these have reinforced toes to them, so you will need to take care with long/sharp nails to be honest. Although saying that, the polka dot design doesn’t start until under the toes, which tells me there might be invisible reinforcement to them. I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and there was no pressure added either.
Around the feet and ankles, it was a lovely fitted finish with no wrinkling. I love how the polka dots work from under the toes all the way to the top thigh – it makes it easier to pair up with any footwear you like!
The Waistband & Gusset: so you will see these come with such a cute band! I did not expect this to be honest, which was a great finishing touch in my eyes!
The band itself is super comfortable around the waist, has plenty of elasticity and stays up well all day long. I had no issues with the band rolling over itself or shimmying down either – happy panda!
These do come with a cotton gusset which sits flush against the skin.
These are such a gorgeous pair and one that can work all year round – I know I will be wearing them as much as I can and layer with them when it gets cold. I really liked them and the quality is superb as well!
