I LOVE breezy skirts! So much so, that this time of year, I'm pretty much counting the days until spring when it's warm enough to wear a breezy skirt and sandals.
Meanwhile, here's my winter solution:
If I have a winter-colored (black or dark colored floral print) skirt that I want to wear, but it's too "breezy", I have a clingy A-line black knit skirt that goes under it as a winter slip. I promise, this keeps me warm. It's been about eight degrees here this week, and I've been fine. Even on shopping days when I have to go out.
If I'm going for an hour long walk in the very cold, I put on a pair of sweatpants under my skirt.
And I wear wool socks with my slip on shoes.
No tights, or leggings for me.
I'm toying with the idea of sewing myself a polar fleece slip. But the knit skirt I'm using as an under-skirt is working out just fine and dandy.
Somehow this traps the heat very well.
Now, here in KY I"m not tromping through any snow. I'd probably wear sweat pants or leggings underneath my skirts if I were.
