Today’s Outfit: Boots & Bare Legs

20 Sep

Boots & Bare Legs: my solution to reconcile a confusing time of year, weather-wise a, at least.  I can’t wear my super warm and cozy sweater dresses,  yet most summer dresses are a distant memory. What to do in this 60-70 degree range with possible chance of showers??

Combine the essence of each season.

For me today, this means a darkly colored  silk dress and knee-high, suede boots with bare legs.  The boots cover enough of my legs so I don’t feel inappropriately bare. And, by omitting stockings or leggings, I’m not sweating from the knees if I walk 10 blocks.  But, I’ve seen the conflict that women endure about whether it’s OK to don leather boots over their bare gams. So if you’re in that pool of unnecessarily conflicted ladies, another option for a seasonal mash-up is to combine a pretty maxi dress with a blazer and flat riding boots. Try lightweight trousers, pumps and a sleeveless top.  The truth is, this in-between weather isn’t rocket science to decipher.  No rules here, just get dressed!
