Cutting it close, M!
Today is the last day to link up with Anne @ Spy Girl. I actually flirted with the possibility of not participating in 52 Pick-me-up this go-around because I don’t own any socks beyond the garden-variety white no-shows. But then, like manna from heaven – or like an eight-year-old who’s earned prizes for selling loads of Girl Scout nuts – a pair of fun knee highs fell into my lap.
Aren’t these the most adorable things? They’ve got whales on them! And they’re blue! Sure, they’re not exactly TARDIS blue, but there’s enough there for me to pull from and justify the cardi.
I tried to keep it all neutral so the socks were the star of the show, but I just couldn’t resist mixing it up with the scarf. Guess I’m just a sucker for pattern mixing, eh?
I do think the uber tassels of the scarf match exactly the color of the skirt, which tones down the potential in-your-facedness of the ensemble. Throw in a pair of subdued booties and the schoolgirl with a ‘tude vibe is complete.
