Professionally unprofessional

Realistically, there is no good occasion to wear this outfit.  Stating the obvious, it's a tad on the over-dressed side for a typical school day.  With its hint of business with the blazer, that means it would be fine for a working day, right?  Well, I guess.  Though I've heard a little debate on the work appropriateness of over-the-knee socks.  Apparently they're more scandalous than blatantly going without the stockings.  Why is that?  C'mon, I'm showing way less skin than Legs in accounting!  Obviously, it's possible to still be work-appropriate without being frumpy.  Though I guess this is just one of those things that boards on the faux-pas line. Oh, and speaking of faux-pas...the dress kinda breaks the index finger rule.  I'm just gonna overlook that.  I sit at a desk all day anyway- no one will ever notice!

  4. The over the knee socks do add a new touch to the outfit! Still quite professional, I'd wear it! :)
