garden parties, teas, barbecues, picnics and boating.
I look forward to wearing summer dresses...but do not feel the same about shorts.
A pair of black Capri's are hanging in my closet.
I don't own a single pair of shorts...the closest thing I have to shorts is an off white golf skirt by Liz Claiborne.
You may wonder why...honestly it's my legs.
They work just fine and have carried me for 59 years and I really appreciate them.
Unfortunately they are dotted with scars and are pale and blotchy.
They look much better tanned but I cannot bring myself to use that self tanning lotion so I press on au naturel.
Have you met Olivia?
The wee little piglet created by the children's author and illustrator Ian Falconer.
I am smitten with these books.
Isn't she adorable?
Can you imagine Olivia trying to get her little piggy legs into these tight hose?
I'll bet she was rolling around on the floor grunting and huffing and puffing.
Speaking of panty hose...
they are a veritable minefield if I do say so myself.
They cover up veins and blotchy legs but they also look terribly "Mumsy" if you get them wrong.
I own a pair of black footless tights which I have worn with a few dresses...
but for summer they are probably too hot.
I have opted for fish~net versions of hose and hope that I am not looking like too much of a tart.
The Fashion Police have not issued any citations but it is early days...
Maybe I am getting it right or maybe just dodging the tickets!
So readers I am curious what you will choose.
Hose or bare legs?
Do you wear shorts?
(I see by your comments that my black capri pants are now out of fashion!)
Hope that you are having a great week and hooray the weekend is almost here!
