bare legs in winter

i was intrigued to run across a blog regarding
bare legs and open toes 
in the WINTER

 it is cold ( crazy cold for Nashville )
 will we still show a bare ankle?

from Garance Dore'

"Is it too late to still wear open toe shoes? Is there actually a cut off temperature or perhaps there’s an I don’t have a driver date that’s more realistic.

Its something I think about in New York when I’m shivering and holding all my belongings so close to me in the hopes they might help keep me warm, and I see a girl in sandals and skirt. Is her body temperature that much different? She’s confidently wearing sandals and I have on socks and fur lined boots. Or maybe she just has a driver…" via

"To bare or not to bare -- that is the question!" Of course, we are talking legs! In colder weather, it is a breeze to skirt the bare leg question with a tremendous assortment of patterns and styles to choose from in stockings and opaques.

Wolford the Austrian brand
"Dark tights and stockings that proceed smoothly to a lighter shade will look unusual. Matte tights will create an effect of “porcelain” legs. Not all the brands have similar products, but Austrian brand called Wolford offers a large selection of colors."

whatever the weather
the leggy look would be excellent

Brainy Quotes

Williams and Sonoma

how will you be celebrating?
volunteering in a kitchen for those in need
the boulevard bolt for the homeless
teaching your children the art of  making beignets
remodeling your home for what seems like a 100 relatives 
food, wine and a walk
football with your feet up 

we are especially thankful to those who will
be working on this day ... blessed are those that labor

"‘Tis the season to be jolly and thankful, and well-fed and warm. ‘Tis also the season to give to those who may be less fortunate—and more hungry—by taking advantage of the city's many volunteer opportunities. Start your volunteer work with our list of some of the best places in Los Angeles to feed the needy—and hopefully your altruism will linger well past the holidays. "
