Day 724 - Face Screwed Up Like You Having Hot Flashes

Shoes: Black and cream 'Ediva' KG by Kurt Geiger

It was miserable today so I didn't bother getting dressed, yesterday was much better.  As you can see from the portraits, I was struggling as the light was streaming in the window, it was like a sauna!  Turns out it was quite windy outside, so I had a few almost-flashing-to-everyone moments, such is the risk wearing a floaty dress with bare legs.  Oh but my legs weren't completely naked, no I wore socks.  I've been embracing socks with shoes lately and although I had a shorter black pair to wear with this, I pondered if I should try....long socks! Those cream, lacey socks I've been wearing go with everything and make anything look so much cooler, so I wanted to push things and try something different.  I know, I know, I haven't worn a dress with long socks for a least 25 years with my wee gingham school dress! Actually no, there was my hockey days where they were accessorised with a skirt that didn't cover my arse, gym pants which almost stopped the circulation in my tiny thighs and my Dads old shin-pads! Oh the memories! Anyway, slightly controversial wearing this at my age or my size or wherever the controversy lies, but did you think it worked? Or did I look like a complete plonker?

Wearing:  Floral tea dress Pearl Lowe, cardigan Be Beau at Matalan, Mischief sunglasses Irregular Choice, plastic flower hair clips gift, socks Kurt Geiger.
Fit: True to size, 5 3/4 heel and 1 1/4" platform.
Comfort: Fine, concentration required when walking though!

  2. I LOVE these socks with the outfit; as weird as it is to say you have the knees for it - they are pretty dainty. Long socks all the way! xx

  3. I think you pulled off the socks very well, I think a full on opaque sock may have looked a little too much but these rather classy. Also you have lovely legs. Xx
