knee socks and scarves
Going totally preppy again today! Another outfit inspired by the J Crew catalog. I am loving this tied at the neck scarf Idea that gets tucked into a button up shirt. Actually NOT from the catalog, I think I just saw it somewhere. This entire outfit is thrifted except for the knee highs (from J Crew) and the skirt (from American Apparel) EVEN the Shoes which were originally released in the 80's. I really rarely wear them because I have a thing about my feet looking too small for my body (which is weird because I wear a size 8 and I am 5'6" which is pretty proportional, the logic should trump the eye!) and I am so used to the chunkyness of boots. They are stinkin cute though. I think blogging is probably going to get me out of my boot rut. The more I see all of the great heeled oxfords on other people, the more I am comfortable doing it myself. Of course the socks give the ILLUSION of boots a little bit. So its kind of a baby step.
I have been so excited to read your comments and visit your blogs! Its really exciting to see the things we have in common! It feels so warm and fuzzy to be part of such a supportive and genuinely beautiful community! I am having serious blogger love right now!
