Nude tights are having a moment. This week Meghan Markle was spotted at her first public engagement as a newlywed wearing a pair, adhering to the strict royal dress code of no-bare-legs. With plenty of summer weddings this year, I’ve been tempted to try the look but I’ve been apprehensive too and struggling to find the right pair.
From the moment the box arrived, I knew Heist tights would be different. It’s a treat to open their sandy pink box that feels luxe and smart. The tights come in a dust bag that I will be using again to stop any zips or heels catching on them as you pack and unpack for a weekend away. As you slither into them, they feel smooth and silky. There are two options of waistband – high at the waist and low to sit around the hips – I went for the high and the panel around the waist gives you just enough additional support to justify a lunch time pudding.
I wore Heist Nude on a hot summer’s day – all day – and never felt sticky. As the day turned to night I was thankful for a little leg warmth, and the flexibility meant I could dance all night without them rolling down or digging in at my waist. At 18-denier you almost forget you are wearing them – without a doubt the smoothest and most flattering tights I have ever worn.

This is definitely one of the most provocative sets that I have featured on my blog so far, but you know by now that I like to live life on the edge a little sometimes… and I think you also like surprises! Many items of clothing can hide a woman’s natural assets and best features, but I’m certainly not afraid to explore braver and bolder looks. For example, after a few buttons are undone, a white shirt which so often forms part of a stylish, smart and conventional look can take on a completely different character… Add to it a shiny leather skirt, sheer tights and red shoes with extremely high heels – picked up from Bootky.pl – and you can easily fulfil the role of a sexy secretary. Just to be clear, though, I’m not suggesting that any women actually go to work dressed this way 😉 But I am convinced, however, that your partner won’t mind if from time to time you wear something similar for him…
This is undoubtedly one of my most eagerly-awaited photoshoots of the year… Valentine’s Day is now just a week away, so if you are still struggling for ideas on how to celebrate this special feast of love, then let me see if I can provide some romantic inspiration. The most valuable thing that you can ever give that special person in your life is your time and attention, leaving them in absolutely no doubt that they are your cherished soulmate. In order for tedious routine not to creep into any relationship it’s worth making the effort to surprise your loved one with unforgettable gestures which you will both remember and treasure for many years to come. One idea is to visit new places, because travelling opens our minds to new experiences and can give people the chance to really get to know each other better 😉 During the evening of February 14, make sure you create an appropriately romantic atmosphere, finding somewhere special where you and your partner can focus fully on each other and forget about all of your troubles for one night. Think rose petals, scented candles, massage oils, sensual music, sexy lingerie, Champagne and a platter of sumptuous fresh fruit… Let your fantasies take over! Thanks to the Hotel Włoski in Poznań, I have been lucky enough over the past few weeks to get a wonderful taste of all the charming things that are on offer to help celebrate the most romantic day of the year. I was particularly impressed with the lovely fairytale room decor and the delicious dinner, which consisted of several mouthwatering courses. And especially for you, as a Valentine’s Day treat, I prepared an extremely feminine photoshoot in a figure-hugging black bodysuit and shiny tights.
