London is very cold right now. This means that I have had to dig out my winter coat and my scarf. Obviously, despite my new citizenship, I am not truly British because I keep seeing men of all ages wearing short pants and a vest in arctic temperatures. I wonder whether I will get there eventually. Probably not.
Mind you, the cold temperatures do not deter some from trotting along with just an evening dress and high heels. I can understand that: you want your outfit to be seen and admired, right? That said, I saw something new today. I apologise for the quality of the picture, I just had time for a quick snap.

Basically, this young lady is wearing a mini-skirt, woollen socks, a warm coat and a hat.
Her thighs had nothing on. Yep, you read that well. Absolutely nothing.
This got me thinking. Maybe I just have too pragmatic a mind. I don’t get it. My question is:
Why would you keep your head warm and your bottom cold?
I tried to think of possible explanations:
1.    She wants to impress her boyfriend (but honestly, would you risk a bad cold just to show your thighs? I certainly wouldn’t. A runny nose is so not sexy. Maybe she wants him to nurse her. Hmm, not a good plan)
2.    She misses the beach (but we all do, right? And we don’t wander half-naked in the cold because of it. Well, I certainly don’t. I am such a conformist nowadays!)
3.    This is yet another new trend that I missed. I have seen quite some girls dressed like that. Maybe, after all, it will stick.
4.    I am becoming way too judgemental. That’s what age does for you –I am too old to change anyway and I stopped trying a long time ago. But, honestly, this is just common sense, right? And I don’t want our already very busy doctors to become any busier because of a naked butt in the cold.
In short, you will not see me running around in the cold like that. What about you? Would you dress like this in the cold? And if so, why? You see, I need to understand.
