Summer Skirt Conundrum
Or, To Hose or Not To Hose?
Having rediscovered skirts this last fall and winter, I've enjoyed wearing them with tights and occasionally leggings, and find this a comfortable and flattering option for me. But warmer weather is on the way, and now I'm faced with figuring out how to make my skirts work for summer, when tights will be too warm and look too heavy.
I'm not yet comfortable with the bare legs option. My preferred skirt length is just above the knee, and this feels like just too much skin to be flashing in the office. (Not to mention all of those blue spider veins...) And I find wearing most shoes without some sort of hosiery to be uncomfortable. But the thing is, I abhor "nude" pantyhose. Hate them with a white hot passion, probably because for so many of my younger years wearing them was mandatory with dresses or skirts. Now, they seem a bit too staid and formal for my office even were I so inclined.
Readers, how do solve this riddle?
Skirts + office + warmer temperatures = ____?
