I just can’t with pants right now. Non-slouchy pants anyway 😉 So I’m going to wear more skirts and dresses. I like them better on me anyway, because they hide my thick legs (which I’m having an issue with right now. baby steps, right?), and I always feel more like me in a long dress or skirt. And honestly, it’s cold here, but I can generally go from the garage to wherever I’m going without having to be out in the elements too much, so I won’t freeze. (Ah, the joys of living in urban sprawl! *rolls eyes*)
This skirt is from last spring (OMG, my hair!!!), and something I was so excited about, but didn’t wear very often once I got my Eileen Fisher harem pants. They are completely different, but I always preferred the EF pants. Maybe it was the pockets? I love a skirt/dress with pockets. This type of skirt/pant is warmer in general than a skirt because it’s closed at the bottom, keeping some heat in, but like I said before, I don’t have to be out in the elements very much, so it’s not a big deal. And anyway, I’ve found that if my chest/neck is warm, I’m good. Also, with maxi dresses, it’s easy to wear tights underneath to create an extra layer of warmth, especially if you’re wearing boots – I’ll show you that later in the week with my new Lanston dress.
What do you think? Do you store your dresses & skirts for the winter? or find a way to make them work? How?
