Tick Tock, High Socks

Gah, I am so tired of being sick. I demand that I be well when I wake up tomorrow! Didn't the Sick Gods get my memo? I put a cover on it and everything!

Mom came by and took me for lunch today, so I thought I'd put on something that would be fit to be seen in public:
I really didn't want anything being too tight or constricting, so I went with tights, a baggy dress and thigh-high socks.

I felt so daring with the socks - but the tights helped keep them from being too risque. I picked the socks up in Florida in the store on the main floor of our hotel.

I've worn the dress many times before (last seen here), and those are my trusty black riding boots.
The socks have little buttons on the sides that are sewn with red thread. I quite like the effect, but two of the buttons have already popped off. The socks themselves remind me of sock monkeys.

I wore this new watch pendant that I got last week:
It was half price at Plum, for $14.00. I never wear a watch, so this is great for those few times when I actually need to keep time...or when I feel like playing with a menswear look. Groovy, eh?

Dress (Max Studio), boots (Aldo, consignment), socks (Steve Madden), watch pendant (Plum).

  2. Sock monkey thigh highs just seem so warm and cozy! I could go for a pair of those!

    And I feel your pain... I tell myself every night I'm going to wake up the next morning without hives, and thus far I haven't been successful. However, hope and determination are a must!

  9. Great watch! That'd be so handy for the very few times I don't wear a wrist watch.

    I've been sick the past couple of days too. Actually, it seems like everyone's sick now. Ugh! I hope you start feeling better soon!

  10. I've gotta take a page out of your book. All my tall socks end up scrunched down, worn with short boots!

    Shybiker, ha, yes, from "Laugh In", right?

    Wendy, alas, no, and there is my failing.

    Rad, thanks! Real sock monkeys would have been good.

    Thanks, Lesa!

    Megan, thanks! Hot tea, good plan.

    Terri, thanks! I hope so too.

    But you always look amazing, Sal! I'd love to see how you rock thigh-high socks.

    Aw, thanks, Lorena! Who can we blame for the missing memo?
