My legs are skinny, but they have too much muscle on them. How can I get toned, yet skinny legs that look great?

No offense, but I see and hear this question a lot. And yet, in just about every case, the girl doesn't actually have muscular legs. They are either unhealthily skinny, or in denial that their packing fat on their legs.
Just because your legs are bigger than you wish, and the skin is somewhat tight, does not mean they're muscular. It's most likely just fat legs. It could even be skinny-fat syndrome. Where you're skinny, but so out of shape, you look fat in areas.
I don't mean to insult you, but if you had muscular legs this is what they'd look like:
skinny, muscular legs
They're extremely sexy, still feminine and you'd have to train for them. You don't just naturally get blessed with muscular legs. So, this idea that through just walking and socializing a lot, you accidentally got muscular legs is a bit off. It is more than likely, they're just fat and you think they're muscular. OR you have a perverted perspective of what looks skinny/healthy/muscular (e.g. like an anorexic). I take this assumption because it is highly unlikely you did resistance training for your legs, with the mindset that they could possibly get too muscular. So I don't think that is the case.
So things I'd suggest:
1.) Develop a healthy sense of what looks good.
2.) Actually google fitness models to get an idea of what it means to be a female and muscular and then you'll start to see if that is truly your problem.
3.) Realize that leg muscle in women usually retains it's feminism
4.) Start evaluating if your legs are muscular enough ;)2
