Chrissy's Knee High Socks

TruSelf Organics Mask

When I was a little girl my mom and I would do face masks together on the weekends.  I loved doing them and it was our special bonding time.  Now that I am older I still like to use masks so when I came across TruSelf Organics Detoxifying Mask I knew I had to try it.  As promised, there is no bad stuff in the ingredients and it leaves your skin feeling really clean.  It was also very easy to mix and apply on my skin.  I am wearing a Cosabella camisole and a pair of striped Chrissy's Knee High Socks for a fun night in while using the mask.

Knee high socks are an easy and affordable way to spice up an outfit.  In this video I layered some argyle knee socks over black opaque tights.  I went for a retro look on top with a fitted long sleeve turtleneck and denim mini skirt.  On my feet are chunky platform ankle boots.  Shop the entire look below.  You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.

(Chrissy's Knee High Argyle Socks - UNDER $10, Gucci Boots, Express Tights - UNDER $15, Alexa Chung x AG Jeans Denim Skirt, Splendid Turtleneck - UNDER $60)

My friends over at Chrissy's Knee High Socks let me pick out a few pairs of knee high socks for styling.  I was so excited because I think knee high socks and socks in general can really make an outfit or update a look.  More than that, they are a cheap and affordable way to update and spice up ensembles.  You can see all the socks I picked in the photos where I am holding them.  I chose the argyle pair for styling around a look.  Now the great thing about knee high socks is that you can wear them without tights, over tights, scrunched up, or peeking out of knee high boots.  The possibilities are endless.  Chrissy's Knee High Socks carries argyle, striped, funky, solid, tube, and custom knee high socks.  I even saw the cutest pair with paw prints.  You can find them here.  Any type of knee high sock you are looking for you will be able to find at Chrissy's Knee High Socks or they will custom make some for you.  All their socks are made in the USA and are high quality, soft, and warm.

It was really difficult to narrow it down to a few favorite pairs, but that is exactly what I did here.  You can see I snagged two argyle pairs, one in burgundy and one in green.  I am wearing the burgundy colored pair in the photos.  I also snagged a leopard print, green tie dye, striped, and solid black pair with ribbed detailing.  These knee high socks will really be helpful for transitioning into spring.  When I don't want to wear pants or jeans I can wear them over my opaque tights like I did here.  The burgundy argyle knee high socks over the black opaque tights created a preppy look.  It also created the illusion of a pair of seamless leggings or tights.  I can picture the green tie dye socks working really well with denim shorts in the spring and summer.  The leopard print pair would look great with some platform sandals. 

I styled the entire look around the socks and added some edge by wearing my Gucci platform lace-up ankle boots.  I love these boots because they have that nice sole that features tread, making them perfect for Colorado.  These boots are very comfortable and they are true to size.  The best thing is that platforms are coming back into style.  They were never out of style in my book, but they are going to be huge in the spring, summer, and fall.  They make you taller and they are so much more comfortable so you won't hear me complaining.  See how I wore the Gucci boots in the past with a leather skirt and leather leggings

Since I am really into the seventies right now I styled the top part of my outfit around that era.  I put on this little denim button front mini skirt that you've seen before.  The last time I wore it was here with a sheer polka dot top and thigh high boots.  This skirt has the perfect A-line shape and is very flattering.  Make sure to size up one size from your usual jean size.  I am wearing a size 27 and I am 5'5.  This skirt definitely has that retro appeal and is very versatile.  You can wear it with bare legs, opaque tights, or thigh high/over the knee boots.  The possibilities are endless.  I think jeans and denim in general is really hot right now.  Buy some flares and a denim mini similar to this one to get ready for spring and summer.

On top I wore a basic black turtleneck.  This Splendid turtleneck has become a workhorse in my wardrobe.  Turtlenecks are really trendy right now, but at the same time they are classics.  You really can't go wrong stocking up on them.  This turtleneck is a modal and cotton blend making it super soft.  I have had it for years it is still in great shape.  It is under $60 as well.  See how I wore it recently with white trousers here and with high waisted jeans here.  I am wearing a size small in the turtleneck if you are interested in purchasing.
