Boot Socks - WIWW



DIY Boot Socks/Cuffs/Leg Warmers/Boot Toppers
(what ever you wanna call them)

DIY-- as in like all of 30 seconds. 
(minus purchasing the materials)


My favorite easy, comfy "go-to" outfit is some leggings and a big sweater/sweatshirt and boots. 

Also.... Linking up with WIWW 
(because I like to about once a year :) Last time I linked up.
It really has a great purpose, especially for SAHM's who sometimes forget about themselves. I know I'm guilty of that on occasion.

Sweater: Old Navy
Tank top: F21
Sweater Leggings: Khols
Boot Socks: DIY thrifting
Scarf:  Marshalls
Boots:  Marshalls


I'll eventually get some of these Crochet Boot Cuffs on Etsy... but until then I DIY'd it at the thrift store (I love thrift stores and good deals!). I spent a whopping $10 and bought 3 sweaters. These were ones that I basically just liked the material and color, not the actually whole sweater per se. Then it took me about 30 seconds to cut the sleeves off and BAM... I had my very, very inexpensive sweater boot socks. 


I must throw in how John makes fun of me... (it's often) Asking me if I'm ready to go do a Jane Fonda work out in my leg warmers. Gotta love the average mans sense of fashion/humor :)


If I could live in fuzzy warm sweater tights and leggings all year around I would so do it! It really doesn't get much more comfy than that :) Actually, it's either that OR jammies, which I sport all day about 3 days a week, sad to say. The wardrobe of a busy mom... right!?!? First comes the kids, then husband (sometimes reversed?), then everything else, then showering, then picking out an outfit. (I don't get to that last one very much).
