Prolonging Skirt Weather

I know I'm not alone when I say this, but I hate, hate pants. Long pants. I can wear capris, but long pants? Well, they just annoy me on so many levels. #1: I can't find ones to fit properly. I have long legs. That's just one of my issues. And I really don't think many pants are comfortable enough to lounge around in. I don't like them bunchy around my knees.

Anyway, the weather has been nutso lately. Cold and windy one day. Mild and nice the next. And sometimes dreary and gloomy thrown in the middle. And, so while I can, I plan to prolong skirt-wearing weather with leggings. A warm compromise. (Oh, and don't worry, the boots have been out to play, too.)

yes, what is going on with this weather?? I was all prepared for cool fall, and now it's going to be 70 this weekend. Crazy I tell you!

Cute! I have thought of getting leggings for myself, but haven't had the nerve. I don't know why, but it feels kind of risky to wear them--maybe because i am over 40 and feel too old! Aargh!

I don't mind long pants, but I HATE HATE HATE shoes! I love flip-flops and sandals, I hate wearing socks and real shoes.

I'm sporting my favourite flip-flops today!

Cute picture! I can't live without my jeans - It can be very frustrating to find the right ones, but once you do... mmm mmm so very good :)K

I have issues with pants because I have to have every pair hemmed.

I like your leggings approach though. Super cute with the boots, I am sure. You are so stylin', girl. No wonder where Spenser gets her fashion savvy.

I am the opposite! I wear pants all the time. I used to wear skirts a lot but since having the kids, I somehow seem to find it easier with pants. I do want to go back to wearing more skirts and I hope that will happen sooner rather than later.

Leggings with skirts is a good compromise I reckon.

Wow! Okay, we are so not twins separated at birth! I looooooove wearing pants and haaaaaaaaaaate wearing skirts! (Getting dressed for church has always proved a struggle!) But I "get" that you prefer skirts. The leggings are a great idea! Does it become so cold that you can't wear skirts? (Dumb Australian here!) Do you have long skirts? Would they be warmer? If you did the leggings could be worn under long skirts too. (When one of my girls went through a rebellious stage she would wear a long skirt to church with her jeans on underneath. She loved the fact that she was wearing jeans to church! Teenagers!)

Lera...I thought I was the only one that can't stand pants!!! I never have liked them....even as a child. I don't mind capris....but NO pants. I have not owned a pair of jeans in years. Your leggings are cute with the skirt!!! I know some ladies that wear long skirts with leggings underneath during the colder months.
