The Right to Bare Legs


Thanks for your insightful feedback yesterday about doing reviews.  Good to know many of you would find them helpful.  I really like the idea that it would open up the material on the blog a teensy bit more to anyone that doesn't totally align with my shape, size, or style preferences.  Just because *I* don't buy something doesn't mean others shouldn't!  Or maybe it does...like if the material sucks.  And I suppose that's exactly why more info on items would help, isn't it?  

Anyway, it was 74 degrees yesterday so I sucked it up and shaved my legs to seize the opportunity to bare legs.  And as a reward for that gusto, all day my pale legs blinded me whenever I caught sight of them.  So much for seizing opportunities.  Back to jeans it is.  :D

  4. Classy outfit. I like that the skirt is striped - brings out your curves, and the boots give you a modern twist. Nude heels would also work on this outfit, don't you think?

  6. This is too cute. I love the skirt with booties. I'm looking forward to getting mine in the mail and trying them in similar combinations.

  7. LMAO! It's winter and I'm blond. I'm not shaving my legs till....Hmm. IDK. I love the striped skirt. ?IT gives you curves and the booties are a nod to the rest of us that you know it's cold and aren't rubbing it in that you are warm lol.

  9. I love this look. I also live in a warmer climate and I wondered if it would be easy to pull off a bare - legged look with booties. Well, question now answered. Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. The boots like this that I want are on sale! Thank you for the reminder :) Isn't it odd to live somewhere warm... I always feel like it is taboo to "bare legs" and I wonder if tights should be worn, etc etc. I just might be wearing booties and skirts when it hits 70 this weekend! Thanks!

  14. Ooh yeah, great sale! And yes, it totally feels taboo to have bare legs, but if it's hot, it's hot! Actually, I only feel that way about style blog land. Where I live it feel more taboo to wear a coat or use an umbrella when it's raining! Weird huh?

  18. Hope you don't mind me using one of these photos for a little self promo. I am an illustrator and I enjoyed sketching this outfit so much as I warmed up that I ended up finishing it.
    (if you would like me to take it off, just let me know!)



    Either way, I love your stylish and modest style—keep up the great work!
