My Winter Wardrobe Staple & A GIVEAWAY!

*Sponsored post

Talking all about my winter wardroblestaple that I can't live without and a giveaway! Words & pictures by Hayley...



It’s not everyday that I’m writing about tights here on the pages of FMIF, however, they are an ABSO Winter staple for me, I’m far to cold blooded to ever be seen without them during the colder months. Today I’ll be talking to my gal pals about the new launch from Scholl‘Light Leg Tights’. What are light leg tights I hear you ask? Well girls, let me tell you, as this product is about to become a wee game changer in your winter wardrobe! Scholl’s aim was to combine fashion and health with Fibre Firm, patented technology that’s scientifically proven to reduce tired, heavy legs and the compression aspect helps to shape your legs and give them a slimmer silhouette. CAN I GET A HELL YEAH?! 
I’m ALL about something that helps to make my legs appear slimmer and less heavy (SO perfect for the party season that tis’ upon us, OUI?). When designing the tights Scholl still wanted to make the new Light Leg Tights  your wardrobe essential so they created the tights in a smooth 60 denier which look luxe and feel super soft, AND last up to 100 washes (casually stroking my tights on the tube BCOZ THEY SO SOFT wasn’t weird at all. Nope). Priced at £14.99 a pair, these tights aren’t the cheapest on the high street, but are of the highest quality and rather than buying several pairs that you know you’ll put a whole in within a matter of minutes, why not invest in a few pairs that will actually last you?!
Available in four sizes; S, M, L & XL, I wore and shot the size L and they fit perfectly! I’m 5 ft 8 and since my school days my BIGGEST pet hate is when your tights aren’t long enough in the body and they constantly fall down at the crotch. Oh, SO not a good look when you’re trying to walk along pulling them up. I opted for the bigger size so mine could stay put all day, and that they did.. HURRAH! Like I said I always wear tights in the winter, especially with skirts & dresses (the thought of no tights makes me shudder, and YES I’m aware that makes me SO old), to showcase the tights I styled them up with my faux leather burgundy a-line skirt from New Look, my leopard print high neck jumper, my long navy coat (so toasty & only £27 in the sale!), and some cute patent ankle boots; all from New Look to.
So, my pals - to celebrate the new Scholl Light Leg Tights, I’m giving away 1 pair of tights to 10 lucky winners, I’m a firm believer that you can’t ever have enough tights so enter below lovers and GOOD LUCK!
T H E   G I V E A W A Y ...
I'm giving away 10 pairs of Scholl Light Leg Tights so you ladies can add my wardrobe staple to your wardrobe this Winter, gal can never have enough tights right? I have 10 pairs, for 10 people, so if you fancy a pair, all you have to do is enter the Rafflecoptor form below, leave me a comment telling me what your favourite wardrobe staple is, for extra entries you can follow me on Facebook & Twitter. Open worldwide and ends on 12/12/16.

What would you consider to be your winter staple? Are tights also a big part of your wardrobe like mine? *prays I'm not the only oldie amongst us!

    I love that jumper! Those tights sound amazing, I just got some from M&S that are supposed to sense when you’re cold and keep you warm, but anything that’s going to give me a slimmer silhouette is a winner for me!
