Third Thursday Threads: Bare Legs

Thank goodness it has been nice enough in Seattle to wear things that don't require tights or long pants! We've had some weird weather here this week - really foggy and chilly in the mornings and then by the time I leave work I'm peeling off the layers because it has reached the mid-70s. But trust me, I'm not complaining - it actually helps me be productive at work when it isn't TOO nice during the day.

Anyway, as you know, I travel a lot for work. And a lot of those trips are just for the day - a quick flight to Portland, a few meetings, and a quick flight back home. I'm pretty good at knowing what to wear in cold weather for days like this - boots, tights, a comfortable dress, a cardigan/blazer, scarf, and a raincoat. Lots of layering options to stay warm or cool off and I'm perfectly comfortable no matter how much walking I do.

I've been trying to brainstorm outfits for similar days in hot weather - especially since all of my work destinations (except for Anchorage) are warmer than Seattle in the summer. When Asos reached out to me about dressing for the job I want, I knew I would pick an item that would help me in warmer weather - a pleated skirt! I've paired it here with a two-layer top (bottom layer tucked in, front tucked to show I have a waist), flats, and a statement necklace, but I could just as easily wear this skirt in the winter with a sweater and booties. It feels pretty versatile so far!

Also, check out how big the chickens have gotten! Charlie (pictured here) has been held the most because of her silly feathered legs, so she's the easiest to catch for a quick photo op. Doesn't mean she's happy about it though...
