Documenting the style-scape of Lagos, Nigeria

LEGGY.

In my 11th (and final) year of living in Scotland, my dear colleague and friend Nicola mentioned to me, it was considered uncouth to wear a skirt with your legs on show, when out and about. 

In "proper" British culture, you had to have on tights or leggings. 
Regardless of whether it was spring, summer, winter or fall.

That's fine.

Except that it meant for over a decade, I unknowingly had the official crown of the Duchess of Unchouth-dom by the very fact that I hated tights and would only wear them when the winter conditions made it a life or death decision.

But why would it be anything but lovely to see legs that are...well...lovely?

I'm British, but apparently not quite British enough.

Because I think showing a decent amount of leg is very, very "couth". 

Like my style subject. Beauty from head to toe.

Cheers.
