Well I live and die in thick black leggings in the winter, I really didn't want it to happen as it is a very comfy but not always flattering option (Cue sketches of Little Britain's nobut-yesbut character whose name eludes me..)
..so the golden rule is to cover the rear and always wear them leggings as if they are thick tights..ala tunic dress or long jumper ..plus Boots! I Love Boots .. I think I have three pairs but would love 7 or 8 pairs really! I go straight from boots to flipflops in the spring summer with barely a nod to sandals or proper shoes..generally as they involve getting legs out and the tanning / prep is just too high maintenance! Why does your skin in odd parts of your body give your age away so badly!
Today I have the ubiquitous black basics but avoided red for once ..detouring to a dark purple cardi which I prefer to a coat whenever possible .. and a lovely scarf in a crazy scribbley type yarn which Lilley chose for my birthday ..Lisa and I both thought it was odd when she chose it but I wore it and love it so much I got a Red one too!
So that's me..winter theme reads 'black and boots!'
