So, Spats. Yay or Nay?

OK. They're not quite stockings, not exactly socks, not really leg warmers - but the fashion industry believes in the functionality of the new spats. The idea is that they allow you to continue wearing your favorite warm weather shoes into the winter because they keep your ankles cozy or even add warmth to your boots. Now by my estimation, we've had about a year to snuggle up to the throwback trend that turns your little brother's marching band spats into those cuddly creations. So, how is that going? Are you ready to dip your toe into this season's oceans of knit, crochet, or brocade spats?

Spats are a definite Yay. Etsy has plenty but I admit I have to see how they look on the curvy gal. Probably better on one with height.

A definite YAY from me too. Especially the Bootilegs. They will fit my oh so curvy legs, unlike many boots out there in the market place.... and make me look taller!
