The other day, I was recounting to Lauren how in the sixth grade, I was insistent on dressing exactly like Cher Horowitz — plaid skirts, platform shoes, knee high socks and all.
It definitely did not make me cool at my school where Abercrombie & Fitch and American Eagle ruled supreme, but Lauren pointed out that it's pretty much right in line with my #aesthetic as an adult, and I have to admit: She's got a point. I'm thinking of attempting pretty pastel knee highs come spring (thinking being the key word), but while it's still freezing cold, a nice thick pair in black is a good starting point. I can layer them over tights with my Doc Martens now and wear them bare-legged with flats in a few months.
