I suffer from SUCH leg envy. Mine could be worse, I know, but due to my muscular calves, I have had to resign myself to the fact that there are certain accessories I just can’t wear. Knee high boots are one (see rant) but the other one is SOCKS. I love socks. When I first watched Gossip Girl, I couldn’t get over how adorable the girls looked in their ankle socks and heels and argyles and brogues (those girls give good leg).
I look on jealously as my fellow fashion bloggers effortlessly pull off over the knee socks and short skirts, or layer socks over tights, or rock a pair of ankle socks with heels.
So, when MyTights contacted me, asking if I would take a pair of Burlington Argyle socks and style them up in different ways, I had to ruefully decline. I can’t do socks. But! If I COULD, this is what I’d team them with…
