Good things come in small packages


A couple of weeks ago I entered Gee's (of Sock Monkey & Gee) favourite little things giveaway! The person who won prize #1 won this..

and prize winner #2 (me!!) won this..

Both prizes are lovely, don't you think?! So I won a gorgeous pair of earrings, an adjustable ring and a pair of dark grey over the knee socks. The only problem is I don't know how to wear over the knee socks! I've had a quick look on lookbook but none of the outfits are quite my style :( so if anybody knows any ways how to wear them or any OOTD's some lovely ladies have done it would be very much appreciated! Gee also sent a lovely card hoping that I like my gift (which I do very much!) and to have a lovely day..

Well something else rather exciting has happened today too! My poor pony Trigger had to be put down last week as he was poorley and wasn't getting any better :( leaving a very lonely Norman behind! so the lady at the vets said she had a little pony she was looking after for a friend that she had for her daughter, but it turned out her daughters allergic! So offered if we would like to look after him, he's a cute little grey pony called Skye. He arrived this morning to a very delighted Norman and they're already chasing each other around the field and making friends! So something good really does come from something bad..

  1. Hi there,
    first of all congrats for winning that awesome giveaway!! I totally love the high knee socks and I don't know how much i have bought this season!! I'm not an expert but my humble advise is to wear them like this: light shorts, black tights and then the socks over them. Or you can wear a short dress and then the socks. I think this is the best way to wear them!

  4. @aliceandbeauty I've always wanted to know how to pull the "over the knee" sock look too! My boyfriend just got back from being in China for 6 months and he always raved about all the girls wearing that style and how I should try it. Congrats on winning the lovely prizes too :)

  15. I just found this OOTD post by jenny from the block where she wears over the knee socks with tights, or at least I think they are socks. I though it looked amazing. I wouldn't be able to pull it off but maybe you could.
