One Hundred and Fifteen

Top: Primark. Knee High Socks: Miss Selfridges.

Knee high socks. Remind me of school days. Unfortunately not my school days, but the one's you see on the TV (and by the looks of it, the kid's in this city!) I'm still undecided what I make of them.. I mean, once getting over the constant pulling them up, or making sure they're at that right kinda height, then you're good to go. So what it is it that I'm so unsure of? Part of the problem is that I don't really have what you cool long thin legs that go on forever. Nope. I have those short legs, that are stumpy at the top. I am 'blessed' with thighs. BIG thighs. And with these big thighs, I get that look, you know the one I mean? Of tight sock. Where it makes your skin hang over the top. So you have muffin leg. Not.a.good.look.
So why am I wearing these right now I hear you say? Well, funnily enough, I feel as nice as pie walking around the house to do the dishes and hoovering in (that's SUCH a lie, I very rarely hoover!) but I guess that's cause not everyone can see the 'hangover' skin. I know, I know... A photo right? All I can say, is thank goodness for good camera angles! And anyway, the only person who's unfortunate to see me like this.. is obviously the boyfriend. But it's OK, he's seen far worse things than a bit of excess skin! 
And I doubt he'll be complaining that a lookalike school girl is washing his dishes...!

  7. Aww I totally understand how you feel about your legs. Mine are so short so when I wear knee highs I tend to look even shorter and fatter! But I sacrifice my appearance to wear cute socks :)

  10. I love reading your posts, like I can sense your voice on it - which sounds wierd because we've never spoken. It just has a conversational tone which is appealing to read. Your hair looks so shiny here, Katy. So nice. And thank you for the comment on my blog (and twitter), I usually reply to everyone on twitter but the @ mention page went really fast when Look announced the news. I feel so bad but just so you know, I really appreciate the lovely comments so much x

  15. You SO don't have big thighs but if you think you do then welcome to my big thigh club! I blame my mother for sending me swimming when I was a little'un, all that muscle has now turned into wobble.
    Love the colour of these socks against the black and white though, I'd love to have been cool enough to wear these at school a'la Jenny Humphrey
