Before you comment on how cold my arms must have been, let me give you my fashion philosophy on suffering. I will happily sacrifice one part of my body in lieu of a look I love, but only one. Hence full coverage everywhere else, including my head when the bite in the air got a little too unbearable.
I have been living in these over-the-knee boots from Marc Jacobs, because they are essentially very short leather trousers that I can wear with skirts. And since I'm not fully ready to regularly wear leather pants under a skirt (although believe it or not, I've done it once before and it worked out ok, although definitely not a look for every day), these boots are the closest I can get. Fun story - I actually got married in these boots. The train of thought being that if you're going to splurge on an article of clothing that you don't exactly need, you had better wear it while doing something momentous.
