Staying warm in the winter while wearing a skirt!

How to stay warm with a skirt on in the winter!  Wear a longer skirt (the one I’m wearing is a midi skirt, with tights or socks (I’m wearing socks), ankle boots, a camisole, a sweater, a faux leather jacket and a soft and warm blanket scarf and winter hat!  Loving that this look is stylish AND nice and warm 🙂

I wear skirts to work often all year long so I need to figure out ways to do it and stay warm through the winter.  I’ll feature more ideas on how to stay warm in the winter with a skirt in the near future 🙂  I actually have some tights that are warmer than pants!

Do you wear skirts in the winter or do you stop when it gets cold out?

  1. Hello,I am a 31 year old male who is 9 weeks post-op lumbar L5-s1 fusion. This is my fourth and hopefully my last back surgery. At the age of 13, I had correctional surgery for scoliosis. I had (T3-L1 fused). I had no PT and very little knowledge of the proper lifestyle to protect my spine back then. However this made me interested to obtain a BS in Exercise Science and Associate in PT assistant. I was living a normal active lifestyle until abruptly I started experiencing severe back pain. I was diagnose with a stress fracture to the right pars. This became the trickling effect for years to come. For 6 years I suffered with right side low back pain that radiated down right leg to the dorsal foot. Extreme weakness lead to foot drop on the right foot. I spent years searching for a doctor who would take action rather than instruct conservative approaches. Went through therapy, nerve block, pain management. With the grace of God I finally found a doctor in New Albany, Ohio. The first surgery was an laminectomy of L5. This procedure was a waste of money. 6 months later a fusion of L5-S1 was performed. This surgery alleviated all my pain. I felt like a new man! So with that being said..I had jumped the gun a ended re-injuring myself in the gym. I was performing skull crushers with an 30lb ez-curl bar. When I finished my set I brought the bar to my mid abdominals and tried to sit up from the flat bench. This is when I felt a burning sensation like my back had been ripped open. Well long story short. The doctor had to go back in a repair the hardware. A screw and nut were both loose and needed to be replaced. So after reading this article about training smart & not training how you used to..really hit home. I do know the importance of neutral spine exercises & stengthening core. But I am curious about exercises that would be ok for legs. Like leg press, hack squats, lunges, ham curls, quad ext?? Mostly everything I plan on doing for strength training would be done on machines. But I don’t plan on doing anything until my doctor clears me. I’m just thinking ahead. Your thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you..

    1. Hi Pat,
      Thank you for your interest in my blog 🙂 Sounds like you have had a rough ride with your back. I have had surgery on my back but not like you have! I am not a personal trainer nor am I qualified to give you any advice about fitness. I would work with your doctor and physiotherapist to come up with a training program that will get you at the physical fitness level you want. I personally prefer not to use machines to train. I prefer body weight and free weight exercises instead as these types of exercises will work your stabilizer muscles as well and improve balance, where machines don’t activate the stabilizers or improve your balance as effectively. Also, body weight and free weight exercises mimic what you ask your body to do on a day to day basis (pick up grocery bags, lift your kids up, move furniture, get in and out of the tub etc.).
      I wish you the best of luck in your recovery. Keep me posted on how you are doing!
      -Lindsay
