Today I tried something that I never would've thought to do on my own, though I do own all the ingredients.
I wore tights with knee socks, along with flat boots. It is logical; tights and knee socks by themselves are too thin in the winter.
I saw girls wearing it, thought it charming, but felt I couldn't 'pull it off'. Behold my visual victory of this endeavor:I worried my knee socks were too tall, or too short to be seen because my boots are too tall, or the hem of my skirt was too long for any of this to work. But it is silly to worry with layers; you can always remove one if you feel awkward.
Silly me! I felt unspeakably adorable. A nice suprise was that my knees felt a little breeze, refreshing after weeks of wearing two pairs of pants and knee socks, but most of me was toasty and super-comfy.
