What I'm Wearing: Old School Girl

Hello fabulous people! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. This is going to be a quick post since I just got home and I'm heading out the door again momentarily. I have seen some other amazing fashion bloggers wearing knee-high socks layered over tights and I absolutely love the look. I just had to give it a whirl. I picked up these Steve Madden "over-the-knee" (knee-highs for tall girls like me) socks yesterday on clearance for $2.97. Perfect opportunity to try out this trend. I was unsure how it would look on me since I am not as thin as the other bloggers I've seen do this, but I really like the way it turned. The bonus is that it keeps your feet extra warm.

This outfit is a little school-girlish but I tried to keep it from being overly so. I bought some other colors of knee socks so I will have to try this out with different skirts and dresses in the future.

I had a little Marilyn Monroe moment in this last photo - just not as graceful.

  6. You did such a great job pulling the knee high look off. I might have to give it a shot again. Also you a brave woman to go outside with no coat on. I could never take outfit post in the snow.

  9. I've seen the knee-high socks layered over tights trend and I'm loving it as well. This school girl look is so cute! You can also try swapping knee-high socks for leg warmers instead. :)

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Lots of love, B

  28. How funny, I just bought a pair of knee-high-socks as well over the weekend! :) We're thinking alike once again- I was just seeing this trend over at other blogs too! I really like how you pulled this off- very classy and pretty, and the black and white pieces gives a polished look! Very beautiful, I would wear this on a heart beat! :)
    Good luck!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
