So for those of you that wear jeans and flip-flops together, why do you wear jeans if it’s warm enough outside to wear flip-flops? Is it simply a matter of preferring jeans over shorts regardless of the weather? Or is it something more practical, such as the temperature being colder in the morning, and your legs are more sensitive to the cold air than your feet are?

jeans are more "not summer" than "only winter".
and flip flops are more "not winter" than "only summer"
so you have both spring and fall where they overlap.
it might be just chilly enough that you want jeans but its not actually cold... so its still warm enough to wear flip flops. annddddd your feet exposed is only a small amount of skin whereas your legs exposed is a lot of skin so you can wear flip flops when its too cold to wear shorts... like I could comfortably wear flip flops down to about 45-50 degrees but once it gets down to 65 degrees I want to wear jeans, not shorts.

I live in South Bay and that clothing combo is pretty common. I personally do it because I hate wearing shoes. (Yes I'm a beach bum) but some places you go out to you should wear long pants, so I wear pants and flip flops. Not all jeans are winter either. I have some really light jeans that I wear in the summer. Especially here in Manhattan Beach, I see jeans, flip flops, and a t shirt out all the time every weekend. I'm not sure what it is, but I find it very comfortable!!
