SLIDER

over-the-knee

Since I don't have my dream over the knee boots featured in my previous post, I've been emulating the look a lot recently with a over the knee sock + flat combination. The only problem is that I'm terrible at keeping track of my socks. At the end of each winter, I inevitably end up with a handful of unmatched, long, black socks. Let's hope this season's socks have a happier ending ahead of them.

On a completely unrelated note, the holiday season is almost officially here!! I didn't even realize until yesterday that Thanksgiving is next week (and that I have yet to buy my tickets to fly out East, oops.) (Another side note, is east capitalized or not? Cause here it refers to the action of flying in a certain direction, but also flying to a specific region. Idk, the grammar stickler in me is confused. I guess it depends on pragmatics.)

  3. When I saw the preview of this post you really had me fooled, because it really looked like you had on over-the-knee boots. Nearly died. Anyway you definitely found a great alternative for the time being. SN: I can't really put a point on the east or East thing grammar is unfortunately not my forte. Sad I know.

  6. Haha, I get the same sock dilemma! Let's hope we can keep better track of them this year...

    I love how you're emulating the look of knee high boots this way though. It works! :)

  10. I lose ALL my socks I don't know what that's about! The worst is when I lose expensive ski socks. I'm loving the whole look- the flats and sock combo is so cute.

  13. Haha I can relate on the mismatched socks, I have a bunch of unmatched short black socks I just pick two from when I need them. You guys must get good autumn weather if you're still able to wear a dress!

  19. You certainly know how to rock the sock so I say screw the boot and stick to this. At least you'll be unique from the pack no? And BTW I have no idea if it's in capitals or not. I don't think I've ever noted this before despite reading it countless times. I'll keep an eye out though.

  20. Love this! It's casual and fun and a bit schoolgirl-ish! The ankle-straps make it even more unique!
    P.S. -- I don't think east is capitalized. :)

  21. I love how you wore knee high socks to give us the impression that you're wearing over the knee boots!! I'm terrible with over the knee socks! They always slide down!

  26. I agree, this is a really cute outfit! And I love that pleat detail on the dress too. One way I get around the sock thing - all my staples are the exact same pairs of anonymous black so everything pairs up.

  30. Mili....I really want a pair of OTK boots too! Why do they have to be soo expensive? Especially the SW pair. :(( I love your shirt dress and you definitely played a trick on our eyes with those over the knee socks (smart girl;)! I'm really feeling this look Mili! :)

  31. I think pairing socks with flats is SUPER clever to get that boot feel. Love that idea! And gah, your shirt dress. My heart cant get over that shirt dress. It's so so cool and effortless, especially paired with a wide brimmed hat.

    And I'm pretty sure it's East. Same when you real stuff like "the wild, wild West". I think?
