My daily outfits are kind of bland, rather simple really. In the summer I like to dress it up with shirts, tank tops, shorts, skirts, and dresses. One thing I’d like to add to my wardrobe is cute socks. Sometimes skirts, shorts, and dresses are already nice by themselves, but a cute, knee-high or thigh-high socks/stockings adds more to the outfit, I think. Depending on the sock you can go from classy looking to punkish looking and more.

To be honest, I have a few high socks and stockings, but I’ve only ventured to wear them a couple of times. I do like them a lot, though. I have to make an effort to wear them more often. Right now it’s summer so it’s not the best time to wear them, but I think on summer days that are a bit more chilly why not wear something short paired with the socks/stockings rather than pants? And then if it gets hotter in the day, I can easily take off the socks. Versatile! How did I not think of that before? lol. Sometimes it’s good to keep your thoughts going in a blog; I wouldn’t even be thinking about socks in the first place. :p

Also, I didn’t know they existed, but there are these knee high support stockings that you can buy and they are supposed to be really helpful, especially to the working woman who is on her feet a lot. I should let my mom know about them. She is standing for hours at a time and I know she gets tired. The stockings are known as “compression stockings” and the way they work is that they have a stronger hold on your legs in specifics spots to create pressure. The pressure is supposed to encourage proper flow of blood circulation, since the reason why you get sore from standing for too long is because all the blood rushes to your feet. A very interesting concept.
