I’m digging the look that is popular right now to wear the high socks under the boots, as well as the leg warmer comeback (which was huge when I was in Second Grade). However, I have not been able to find the right kind of socks. Someone mentioned Target (because all good things come from that wondrous store), but I could only find one grey pair, which I of course bought, but I think the rest were sold out. Like I said, popular.
Then! My oh so crafty, and artistically talented sister Heather (the one who reads a lot, in between her sewing and art projects), showed me how to convert old sweater sleeves into knee high socks. Brilliant!
I just happened to have a sweater that I was just about to toss because it’s days were done. But now it can live a second life : )
Now this is really complicated, so get ready to take notes.
1. Cut sweater sleeve at armpit along seem.
2. Continue up to shoulder part.
3. Slide onto leg.
*My sister made hers into an actual sock by turning it inside out and sewing together the cut edge.
But, that’s too complicated for me. So I just went with the leg warmer look.
That little pointy part there—I just tucked into my little booty socks when I wore my boots (no one saw it anyway).
I was quite pleased with my one minute project!
I was also quite pleased that I bought this shirt at Old Navy for only freakin’ $7 last week! So, I got one in blue too.
I was copying my sister Melody after I saw her wearing it in this post on her blog.
particulars: Boots, Alloy; Socks (duh!); Leggings, Costco; Tank, Motherhood (no I’m not pregnant, I just love how long it is); shirt (duh again! But in case you weren’t paying attention I forgive you, Old Navy); Belt, New York & Co.
