Growing up, I had a slight obsession with knee-high socks. I believe I can attribute this to my other obsession, the holy grail of my adolescence, the movie Clueless and Cher Horowitz.
I used to steal my dads work socks, stuff my chubby little 8-year-old legs in them and viciously yank them up my legs until they conceded defeat and stayed at the bottom of my knee-cap.
Fast forward 20 years and even my dads biggest socks wont quite do as my home-made knee-highs. Fortunately, however, I am now a grown (ish) woman and can purchase my own (pre-stretched!) socks for just $12.99 at my nearest H&M, saving work for myself and sanity for my parents.
I just think knee-highs are a great alternative to tights during the winter, and a great way to switch it up!
Was I a bit cold in this look? Yes… but… the outfit! No pain, no gain, ya’ll!
