outfit | thick thighs, no lies

My, oh my, where has the time gone??

As I made it abundantly known, it was my birthday on the 16th { I can’t help it, i love celebrating my birthday!! }.  My husbands birthday happens to follow just 8 days later on the 24th so we decided to have a Meanie staycation. We both meant for it to be a relaxing stretch of sleeping in, getting some Spring cleaning done, enjoying each others company, day time adventures and getting work done.

Welp!  We ended up being reeeally successful at the sleeping in, relaxing and enjoying each others company part, moderately successful at the Spring cleaning & day time adventures and a complete flop on getting work done.

He had hoped to get some writing in, meanwhile I had plans for him to take spades of outfit photos so I would be stocked up with lots of content.

In the end, we stayed in our pj’s about 99% of the time binge watching Gilmore Girls, Daredevil, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Star Wars: Clone Wars & Star Trek { as well as watching the new Star Wars trailer more than I care to admit } We sound like TV junkies and I guess for last week, we really were!!

Anyhoo, we really had a great time and regret nothing.  But today I was bummed I didn’t have anything to post on the blog so I went through my ipad and realised I had this outfit shoot from a couple weeks back just sitting there.  You may recognize the images as my new profile photos were taken from this set, but I still wanted to share the outfit with you. as soon it will be too warm for anyone to want to wear opaque tights.

Now I don’t know about you, but I looooooooove over the knee socks, BUT they never fit my thighs without pinching & rolling down.  I ended up cheating a bit and took an old pair of lacy knit stocking and cut them off, with their texture and pairing them with an opaque tight the fibers of both kind of work together like a kind of velcro and kept these in place almost all day with only have to readjust a couple times.

I think they look super cute, kinda sexy and totally badass on thick thighs with a mini skirt  { short shorts would be really cute too, I’ve been hunting for a couple pairs for the summer so far I like these & these }.

How do you feel about knee socks or over the knee socks? Have you had luck with any brands that work well on plus size thighs??

  1. Fab outfit! I love Sock Dreams for socks that fit larger legs. They do all their own size testing and some styles are made in America. The only reason I don’t have more is that living in the UK shipping is slightly on the costly side.

    • I’ve seen them before, but I’m always skeptical on sizing. I guess I needed a true testimonial before I believe they were truly plus friendly!! Good to know, I see them every year when I go to Seattle for Emerald City Comic Con. Thank you!!
