So it was the first official fall event of the year… Octoberfest! I couldn’t wait to finally break out some of my new fall wardrobe. An orange-ish dress (that still looks cute in the summer on its own) with a chambray shirt, brown suede boots and the pièce de résistance … cream colored knee high socks that poked out of the top of my boots.
Then the tall man said to me … “Your socks are showing…” and I said “I know, it’s in style”
“Are you sure? That looks funny.” And then he continued to look at my legs with a mocking glare every time we spoke until I couldn’t take it anymore — and took them off.
Sure enough we saw five other fashionistas at Oktoberfest who were strong enough to brave the strange looks they got from unknowing men.
Later in the day a friend text messaged me an image from Express so that I could prove to him it was in style. We all had fun with it … and now my man (who I am still not sure if he likes the look as much as I do ) knows better 🙂
What I think I like so much about this look is how affordable it is. Any outfit you may have already loved from last fall and winter is instantly updated with a less than 10 dollar purchase.
