When it comes to May, you know that the year has made progress. For me, May is the in-between month that is prolonging the wait to the busy mid-year stuff that always seem to occur annually. In Melbourne, it represents a quick window of opportunity when wearing jackets isn’t such a necessity, so I try to maximise this occasion.
This year I am once again pulling out the over-the-knee socks, because to put it bluntly I love them to death. My online shopping carts are full of them in all different colours and patterns, and if only my budget allowed it I would purchase them all. They are kind of useless to wear during the especially cold days, however for May days like these they are perfect with shorts or a skirt.
Shorts- Forever New
Bag- Forever New
Belt- Cotton On
Oh, and I realise that the last time I blogged was too long ago. When my busy schedule allows it, I will try and update it as soon as I can!
Over-the-knee and knee-high socks reminded me of all-girls’ schools, old men who have a preference for shorts with high socks and St Trinians. They still remind me of those sentimental things, however, now I find that they are not limited to the realms of suggestive schoolgirls and bingo-playing oldies.
Lately these garments have been making a considerable impact as the weather grows colder as they are replacing pants, being worn over stockings, tights and leggings and are acceptable when paired up with moderately short skirts and shorts. They assist in keeping your legs warm and are actually a lot of fun to play around with because there are so many irresistible and creative styles and patterns available. They can be worn with diversity when accompanied with heels, converse, ankle boots, over-the-knee and knee-high boots and sandals.
They may not be suitable for all occasions, but now that they are recognised for their swankiness (and there are SO MANY to choose from), they apply to casual wear, party wear, sleepwear and I-just-want-pineapples-on-my-socks kind of wear.
Excuse me whilst I purchase some cat-printed socks.
