I am with Fred regarding pantyhose and tights as I find them a pain. I got through last winter wearing mini skirts, with the aid of long socks on really cold days. I wore a tweed mini skirt with burgundy socks to one dinner outing, but not plaid with pink I am sorry to say.

Tomorrow is St Andrew's day and time for all thinks Scottish.
I rather think I will have some fun with the kilt malarkey but pink tights, King George maybe but I am no Charlie!
Pics will be issued.

As promised, my St. Andrew's Day office outfit before I started the Highland Flop, the ancient Scots dance for the folk with two left feet.
BTW, this is a SKIRT, it is not a "Kilt" by definition!

Coulda fooled me - tartan pattern - kilt pin - sporran - red hose mock sox - attempting something akin to a highland jig - - -
Who says when you wear the kilt you got to wear it formally with all the bells buzzers whistles etc. ?
"YES SKIRTING MATTERS"!
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

I suppose on St Andrew's Day anything goes.

The anorak dominates everything, the kilt is a kilt is a kilt, but I presonally wouldn't have gone for pink down there. To keep out the cold I might have just used normal black or grey kilthose, possibly flesh-coloured tights that wouldn't show, so to speak.

Not an anorak, it is a Jacobite or ghillie shirt.
The tights are the colour that they are,
Anything goes, any day as far as I am concerned.
Say what you will, I am wearing a skirt or maybe a kilted skirt at a push.
It simply and definitely not a "Kilt"!
Ironically, as it is a checked cloth, wrap around construction with pleats, the world and his dog agree with you.
Thus, endowing it with a degree of invisibility usually reserved for denim or worse, trousers.
For all of that, I don't actually care, I wear what I like, when I like and how I like.
One disappointment, nobody mentioned my devilishly handsome features.

Steve, I don't think anybody looked up that far!
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

On reflection, Dennis, that has likely been the wisest comment of all.
Good advice for the faint hearted.

Thank you Steve, a sense of humour is an invaluable asset along with the courage to actually use it.

BTW Dennis
Nobody seemed to notice the fetching accessory on my right leg.
That expression on the mug is pained misery or heroic stoicism, take your pick.

You mean that black smudge? Looks like a knee brace or leg warmer something.

Knee brace it is, and the knee is bloody sore.
Even worse, I just could not get one to match the skirt or the tights, such a hardship you know!
