knee socks: a balancing act

When I was in high school we got to wear kilts and knee socks, but I never really took advantage of that because I didn't cut my kilt and since I didn't want to wear it when it was uncut, I just opted for pants instead. I eventually did end up cutting my kilt, but even then it wasn't as short as the other girls (honestly though, some girls had their kilts so short, it was just a little too inappropriate for school, which is why my high school eventually took out of the uniform). Anyways, long story short, even when I wore my kilt, I wore tights, so I never engaged in the whole knee sock wearing thing. Now, I'm embracing it, maybe a little too much. But I think it's such a convenient style, perfect for early fall weather. Tights can get too overbearing and bare legs are too chilly. Enter knee socks, the perfect balancing act.

Ahhh so jealous of your Kors watch, it is gorgeous! I love the knee high socks. Never wear them myself because they always tend to slip down which really bugs me!
Maybe one day I'll find some that never fall down.

Loved this post
