I was on a date with this girl and she was adjusting her socks under her boots and noticed she had on black leggings (?) under her jeans. When she rolled up her sleeves on her sweater she also had a black layer underneath. Could they be thermals? It's not even cold out... I'm confused.

Is she slim?
I'm naturally built like a handrail. Even after 3 natural childbirths, I'm still in the "underweight" zone of the BMI scale, as per the US government (although a nice big bowl of beef stew and a tall drink can push me into the "normal weight" zone for a few hours... lol).
I also get cold INSANELY easily. My *ideal* weather is a July day in Las Vegas, like 105-110ºF/40-44ºC. If it's below 60ºF/15ºC, I start wearing not just layers, but also elbow-length leather gloves. (My friends think I'm being effortlessly stylish -- which is a nice compliment -- but, the truth is, I won't be able to feel my hands after about 10 minutes if I don't wear the gloves.)
I'm an extreme -- I'm also over 6 feet tall, so, my body is pretty much custom-built to dissipate heat as fast as humanly possible -- but, you get my point, right: Slim women get cold VERY easily. Lots of surface area, relatively little volume, you do the math.
Even if she isn't super slender... Women are still **physiologically inclined** to get cold more easily than men. That is explained here:
... But if she's super slim, that will be exaggerated even more than normal.
Was she wearing NICE jeans? Like, *really* nice jeans? That cost triple digit dollars?
See, the thing with NICE denim is... You don't *wash* it, EVER. The closest you get is... putting it in the freezer.
Yes, you read that right. No, I'm not shitting you.
When I wear REALLY NICE denim... I'll usually wear leggings under it, for two different reasons.
• The leggings -- which can be washed easily -- will acquire my lovely womanly smells. The jeans will be spared those smells.
• If they're tight skinnys, it's WAY easier to pull them up over a slick pair of leggings. No more dancing and wiggling my hips like an epileptic Shakira, I can just pull 'em on.
If girlfriend is a true fashionista, this could be part of the reason, too. (And even if not, you just learned the correct way to wash really, really nice jeans.)1
