DIY Boot Socks

Boots sticking out of socks are all the rage right now.  I'm all about being all the rage, so I had to jump on that bandwagon.  Ignore the super dirty mirror - -

So I whipped these up - - no sewing, no nothing.  I can't even do a tutorial for you because there aren't that many directions.  But I'll try:
--Grab a sweater.  One from your to-giveaway pile.
--Grab some scissors.
--Cut the arms off.
--Pull them onto your legs like socks.  That's it - I didn't finish the edges or anything - they're way down in the boot so no one knows. They go from my knee to my ankle - guess I should have taken a picture of that. I did wear normal socks under these, to cover my feet.

I wore them to church with my boots and a dress - the dress was a little past my knee, so I hiked it up to show you the socks - but in real life, you could see them when I walked and my dress swished, so I didn't have to walk around with a hiked up dress or anything.

So, grab yourself a sweater and some scissors, and jump on this fashion train :)

I did the same thing! :) Although I will say I don't wear them if I'll have to take the boots off because then I look a little goofy... or I take both of REALLY quickly. ;)

Although, you could start a new trend with that dress hiked up! :) You're so cute!

That dress is really pretty on you, and the boots with it are cute. What a smart way to make boot socks!

Really really cute!!! I'm pretty sure I won't look that cute but I'm going to give it a try!!

Just the motivation I need to go cut up a sweater. I love these! And I have been wearing my boots more and more this month, so I can't wait to try it!

Cute, but won't they unravel if you don't finish off the ends?

BOOTS sticking out of SOCKS are all the rage?!?! I've been doing it wrong this whole time! Hahaha. Couldn't help it. They look great though!!

Great idea! I love that you specified that you didn't walk around with your dress hike up. :)
