While walking around Geneva, my sister told me she’s been seeing so many people stare at my legs–and not just stare but actually turn their heads as we walk past them. No, it’s not because they love nor hate my legs. Don’t worry, I’m not about to flatter myself. I’m actually pretty sure their stares had nothing to do with their feelings towards my legs. LOL! You see, on this day that I decided to wear a mini skirt, it was extremely cold in Geneva. Locals were wearing windbreakers and all sorts of cold-weather gear while I, this foolish tourist, wore a mini skirt with stockings that seem thinner than my winged eyeliner. They must’ve been wondering how on earth is this girl managing? Why are her legs still working? Why hasn’t she frozen to death? Why is she so dumb?!
But you see, I have a little secret. No, I’m not related to Elsa (if you haven’t seen Frozen, then you can’t sit with us. Just kidding.) You know how sometimes, opaque tights just don’t go well with the dress or skirt or shorts you want to wear during winter? Sometimes, they just don’t work. You need to show a little skin. My trick? Wear nude colored thermals. Would you believe that I’m actually wearing 2 black thermals underneath my nude thermals which I then topped of with a pair of sheer stockings to give the illusion that I’m baring some skin? Fooled you, didn’t I? Har har. I’m wise like that. This velvet suit I’m wearing isn’t made for winter neither so underneath my sweater, there are a few more thermals in there. Since my velvet jacket is oversized, you can easily dismiss the bulkiness as part of the jacket’s style. See! There are plenty of ways to work around your clothes for winter. No need to hide under unflattering coats and jackets.
