Over My Knees

I finally bought some over the knee socks! I got them at Target and wore them with pretty much the only skirt I have that isn't knee-length. I love the way they look, but they were a bit irritating throughout the day. I walked between buildings a couple of times at work and I kept having to pull them up. Even in the pictures, they slipped down below my knees...oh well! I still think they're cute. I took these pictures in the studio after doing some jewelry pictures for an awesome artist.

The jewelry was all my Grandma Jean's. I finally dove into her jewelry box the other day, and I found some things I really love! My dad gave it to me shortly after she passed away, but I hadn't gone through it because I didn't want to mess anything up. But then I decided that it would be really special to actually WEAR the jewelry! It makes me think of her all through the day, which I love. I don't think much of it is very old or expensive, but I love it because it belonged to her <3

Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Walmart (Miley!)
Socks: Target
Shoes: Rack Room
Jewelry: from my Grandma, Nora Jean

 I promise all my clothes don't come from mega-stores...

Mm, over the knee socks - I love them on Kyla and now seeing them on you, I wanna get me a pair!
I also very much love the colour of your top with those boots... and yay for wearing your grandma's jewellery. It really is the best way to pay tribute :) That and baking their old recipes.
