A NEW WAY TO WEAR DRESSES

by admin on December 10, 2013

here’s another trend i love:  pants or leggings under dresses or skirts.  i’ve always longed for a shalwar kameez, and this is as close as i’m likely to get without looking like i’m wearing a costume.  i doubt this look will go mainstream, but it’s great for those of us in the know.  i wore black cotton leggings from the GAP under my dresses all summer here in carmel, where the evening temperature never got much above the mid-fifties.  for me, leggings are more comfortable than tights—looser, less binding, and wearable with sandals.  i’ve just invested in a pair of smartwool leggings from REI for winter.  i’m hoping to wear them with an IBEX skirt that i’ve ordered on-line, perhaps in lieu of jeans.  we’ll see:  this one is an experiment.

as you can see, once i stuck my toe back into the world of shopping, i’m having a hard time stopping!  oy…..

on a quest again,
