I have this really awesome habit of seeing incredibly attractive skinny girls do what I consider a fashionable thing and then wanting to copy them. Seems harmless enough, right? Wrong. Because one thing logic-defying-skinny-pretty girls don't have to do is dress for their body. Case and point: they can wear everything flowy / twelve sizes too large and throw on a pair of flats thus causing females of the interweb to pin their photo 8 trillion times. I attempt to recreate said pin and someone approaches me at an escalator asking if I need help because they assume I am eight months pregnant. Not cute. No one is pinning that.
So when we had our Christmas in California shoot, I watched the models don oversized sweaters and knee high socks for their "hanging around the house" look and I was all "ooh-ahhhh-ohhhhhh-geniussssss" because "hanging around the house" essentially means you can wear whatever the eff you want. Thus I can dress like the logic-defying-skinny-girls all my heart desires. This is the loophole friends. I'm sure some of you still throw on your old juicy pants when it's cold and all your laundry is dirty. NO JUDGEMENT HERE LADIES. It's the privacy of your own dwelling. DO YO THANG. Cause I fully plan on doing my thang all winter long in my house with my oversized sweater and knee socks. Except lets all just agree to avoid any high socks that SQUEEZE the mid thigh. Um, no. That's not cute for anyone. I don't want to be laying around my house staring at my legs wondering why they look like sausage leaking from a casing.
So for those of you that want to hang out at your house in a comfortable manner and cover your legs without actually putting on pants, here are my favorite and incredibly affordable socks to recreate this look.
Marled Socks // $14 or 2 for $22
Lightweight Button Socks // $14 or 2 for $22
Tonal Scrunch Socks // $14 or 2 for $22
I've already purchased these socks and have been wearing them with an old oversized gray sweater around my house. Note the scrunchy top which does not squeeze said thighs.
Ribbed Cuff Socks // $14 or 2 for $22
and for those of you who aren't ready to dive full in...
Chunky Knit Socks // $16 or 2 for $22
Varsity Stripe Socks // $14 or 2 for $22
Now go forth to lounge in your oversized sweaters and super high socks.
