What can you do if it's a bit chilly outside but you really want to get get your legs out and get into the spirit of spring?
How can you do it without freezing to death?
Fake it, of course!

The weather here is what I would call "Fresh" or "A bit blowy"... typical Scottish spring weather.
Sunny but windy.
About 10-12 degrees.
Certainly NOT the weather for bare skin!
{You could lose a toe (or two) in an open sandal 😝.}

So today I am using all of the cheats up my (thermal) sleeve to keep me cosy.
One of the most important being the sheepskin liners in my shoes.

This canvas shoe (and cute little sock) is hiding a roasty-toasty secret.
The outside says "Spring" the inside says "Don't worry, your toes are safe!".
Warm feet make a HUGE difference.

My legs are totally bare here (apart from a slather of body lotion) but because of my warm feet (and torso) I felt surprisingly cosy.
Under this denim dress is a selection of thermal undies too!
Cosy shorties and a camisole.
Then a long-sleeved thermal layer.
The denim dress works well to hide my secrets... and even the belt serves a purpose.
Keeping those drafts at bay and my layers in place.
Pop on a wool cardigan and I'm done.
Comfy, cosy and ready for a day of running around.

  3. I have to say Sam, you seem to have made quite a science out of defying the Scottish weather and looking really darling while doing it.
    Our weather is up and down here in Minnesota as well. I'm admiring your leg baring courage. Clearly you're ready for spring my dear!

  4. oh yes, I agree about warm feet, they make a difference!, but I think you're a pretty courageous lady, going out bare-legged in a 12ºC temperature (that's the temperature of a 'chilly morning' here, but then it raises to 20-25ºC during the day)
    I always take notes on your tricks, even our mild climate is easier to manage!. Love that you look so cool and modern, comfy & elegant!, love your denim dress, your sneakers and that so subtle color combo! you rock it!
    besos
