I don’t usually wear over-the-knee socks, because as I’ve said before, I find the result quite sexy, and that’s not my style. But as you know I like to experiment with my style from time to time, or I feel uninspired, especially in between seasons, and that’s how I came up with this look. I toned it down by pairing it with biker boots, because I wanted it to look more playful than sexy. I think it looks good, don’t you think? So if you like the idea of wearing such socks, try to do it my way, and wear something very casual with them. I think I liked the result…

Sweaterdress & over-the-knee socks | Outfits
This is another look we photographed last month (actually the last one before I took more than a 2-week-break from outfit photos), when the weather was still bearable. It’s the first time I’m wearing these kinds of over-the-knee socks outside, because even though I own them for years, I wasn’t so brave to do so. In my eyes, they can be quite sexy, and I’m not comfortable with looks or even comments from strangers. But this time I decided to find a way to wear them out, and I found that this sweaterdress is the best way to do it, because it’s rather casual and doesn’t leave much skin exposed, due to its length. Paired with my wedge booties, it almost looks as if I’m wearing over-the-knee boots; another trend I never thought would be for me and my bodytype, or even weight. My mom’s old thin belt and my D&G clutch in the same hue were the perfect touch to the look. Do you like it?
Parisian | Outfits
Lately I’ve been really trying to find different ways to style, basically the same pieces from my closet, and I end up relying on last minute’s inspiration (since I have decreased my purchases to 1-2 pieces per season). The results are either on the much casual side, like you’ve seen here and here, or on the dressy ladylike chic style I usually prefer, like on this post, and this one. Either way, I’ve liked the result, and I must say that I have even surprised myself, with creating outfits with the same old pieces. Being a personal style blogger, and showing 3 outfits per week, is not easy, if you don’t shop new pieces to refresh your wardrobe and style your clothes in different ways, in order for them not to look the same all the time. And I’m definitely proud of myself for not being a victim of consumerism, in the middle of the crisis, and for choosing to spend my money on more pressing and important things. So ladies, if you can’t buy new things, for any reason, don’t feel bad; just take a look at all your clothes really carefully, and find hidden treasures in the bottom of your closet, that you might have not worn in years, but can now refresh your style without breaking the bank. Like this shirt, that I’ve had since secondary school, and haven’t worn in years, and that beanie that once belonged to my brother. Brought together to give a fresh note to my old striped dress you’ve seen before, this time belted, and paired with over-the-knee socks giving a Parisian air to the look. I hope you enjoy it!
