Working girl: Knee-high

I was a little nervous about this one. What do you think? I love the knee-high look but is it too school girlish? I think because the knee-high sock seems to showcase one's legs so prominently, that maybe they should be paired with an A-line skirt and a looser top instead of my pencil skirt and snug top. So the question is, are knee socks appropriate in the work place? And if not where and how would you wear them?

I think they can be appropriate for the work place - I think you pretty much nailed the look, in my opinion!

I am trying socks with my wedges today myself :) Not knee-highs yet (though I do have some that I'm looking to incorporate into some outfits), but it's still a stretch for me!
