When I was home in LA over winter break, I bought a pair of knit white knee socks from forever 21. For $2.80 I figured what the heck. I’ve never worn them before, although I took them out of the packaging to try them on when I initially bought them. The knit pattern is clearly not meant to keep my feet warm, and as I got dressed this morning, I tried them on under my brown suede Steve Madden boots. I couldn’t decide what my sentiments were. My roommate said she wasn’t sure how she felt, and I think part of the trouble was that I was wearing deep turquoise leggings, making three colors just below my waist. I tried pulling the socks up and bunching them at the top of the boot, but I was still undecided.
In the end, I stuck with regular knee socks [hey, it was 20 degrees out today and I was leading a tour] tucked safely beneath my trusty Steve Maddens. Maybe next time? Or maybe with black boots & black leggings, to make the look simpler? I’m not sure, but I’ll be sure to keep you updated.
