I rediscovered my love for knee socks this spring. I used to wear them quite often, but grew away from the look a couple of years ago and mostly worn them in the winter over tights when they weren't visible but just an added layer of warmth. It's nice to be wearing them again and they even feel rather practical on these spring afternoons when I go wading through knee-deep grass and can worry less about insects reaching my skin. And aside from the bugs and occasional snake, it's so refreshing to spend more time outdoors lately. My friends also have more free time for exploring so I'm not just going to my usual haunts and lingering but checking out new places as well. There's still so much in my area left to see.
