Jeans tucked into socks, lace sweater
Peekaboo lace sweater from tag sale in Lloyd Harbor; H&M skinny jeans from tag sale in Port Washington; springbok bag from tag sale in Dix Hills; Jeffrey Campbell Bronte platforms; jewelry including Bakelite, Donald Stannard, cinnabar from various tag sales and gifts.
Wore this to lunch with a friend at Premier Diner in Commack. I read on a menswear blog (which one escapes me) that tucking your pants into your socks is a thing right now. That sounded just nutty enough for me to give it a try. I went with some rugby socks I stole from my Hubbs a long time ago, echoed the colors in the bangles, and sexed it back up a bit with the see-through top and platform oxfords. Not that Commack is a town renowned for its style, but socks on top of pants goes over well there. I got multiple style props from the people in the diner.
These jeans need some serious TLC or some serious replacements or both. Therefore I will be wearing the heck out of them.
