DIY leg warmers (made to look like socks!)

boots, boots, and more boots!
they seem to be a girl's best friend these days.
and i am okay with that because i loovve boots.
however, everywhere i see boots i also find socks that are showing above the boots.
and sadly, i don't own one single pair of cute long socks.
so today i resorted to making a pair! 
although i don't think you can call them socks, since they don't actually cover your feet.
so lets just call them leg warmers.
let me know if you have a better name! 

so this is probably the most easy diy project ever!
my mom and i recently scoured some thrift stores and bought some sweaters that we thought would be cute to cut up and make into headbands.
well, with a lack of time, it hasn't happened.
but today when i was putting together my outfit for my next outfit post, i thought of the brilliant idea to make some false socks to go under my boots from one of the sweaters that we bought. 
yes, love it when that happens!

            so all that I did was took some handy fabric scissors and cut off each sleeve about half way up the arm.

                          next i just scrunched them below my knees and slipped on some boots! 
              this is such an easy way to add a little something fun and unique to any outfit.
            i will be showing off the rest of this outfit in the next day or two for my next post, so be sure to check back!
