So, leg warmers are back, apparently! I found a couple of pairs at DSW that looked like they’d fit my large calves and snatched them up. There’s an oatmeal-colored pair, shown here, and a white pair, both nice and soft and warm. These particular pairs are probably meant to stretch up to mid-thigh, but there was no way these one-size-fits-all deals were going anywhere higher on me than mid-calf, so I’m using them as boot socks and folding the extra length under my boots. (There’s also a pair of actual socks under there, so my feet and calves were extra toasty.)

This Ice Silk dress is a little twee, with its layers of ruffles, but I love it. The ruffles are sewn to the inside of the tunic-length dress, but they’re only a few inches long inside the dress, preventing them from making my hips look huge. The dress is also lined, which is nice, and the diamond pattern is pretty. It’s too short for work wear, but cute for a day out.
