Thigh Highs for Fall

I love love love her thigh highs.  As Autumn falls, and I scavenge through my closet for something to wear, I find myself regretting not wearing shorts more often during the summer months.  And I could do the shorts and tights thing as the weather cools, but dang, this woman looks so gorgeous in her thigh highs!  Now, there are many opportunities for this look to go wrong.  Like if she were wearing bolder or darker colors, this could look a little too sexy seductress for the day time.  Or if the shorts and jacket were tighter, it could get trampy in an instant.  But she balanced the thigh highs so well with the soft pale colors and boxy shape of the coat.  Being a busty lady myself with broad straight shoulders, I couldn't pull this exact outfit off because big boxy blazers just make me look like a literal box up top rather than just boyish.  But if you have a more of a boyish figure and a smaller bust, this could look damn good on you.
My goal for the fall is to figure out how to pull off thigh highs without getting too vampy.  My bod really likes to try to push me in that direction even when I tell it, no no you silly, I'm far to shy!  If I could keep my outfit at a "coy" level like this pretty lady, I'd be good to go.  :)

I was JUST literally thinking about thigh high's and how I love them but I feel like I wouldn't know how to pull them off. I feel like all the skirts I own are too short(?) to wear with these.

Le sigh. I need to do my thigh high homework...fall is here!
