GET ME DRESSED // 004


i go on and on about socks but the fact is, socks are the greatest. my favorite way to wear socks these days is over my skinny jeans or tights, with a little bunching going on around mid-calf, under clogs or ankle boots, with a good amount of sock peeking out the top. i don't know, it just looks cozy. but it has to be the right socks. No nonsense makes a line of socks specifically for wearing with boots, called Rugged Boot Socks. you can find them at Walmart or the drugstore and they've become my go-to sock. i am not even kidding you when i say they are the world's perfect sock. reinforced at the heel, super soft, not too thick or too thin, and they have all the flecks a girl could want. these are the Black Tweed, and it's that kind of situation where the minute they come out of the dryer, they go on my feet. i ordered these gold booties from zara for the holiday party season (plus wedding receptions) and i've already found a million excuses to wear them. a rugged sock takes the glitz down a notch, i really like the juxtaposition. it also creates a kind of pseudo leg warmer look i'm really into.

  3. My favorite part of these "get me dressed" posts? Huck poses with you every single time. LOVE IT!!

    Also, I completely agree on the sock front. I cannot go into any store (ANY STORE AT ALL!) and not come out with a pair of socks. Comfy boot socks, striped socks, even "simple" black socks with a fun pattern to the stitching - I love socks so much and my drawer is over-full with them.

    Good thing I have to renew a prescription today, so I can pick up a pair of these boot socks though - don't have a pair of them yet!

  4. You're so right up my alley with the sock game, Natalie. Covering ankles and peeking from underneath nice pair of booties... heavenly. Only I cannot find the perfect product - those fancy ones contain zero to none cotton and sport Christmas or Disney motifs without a breather (not that I'm not fan of either but would like to have some other options to go with my already Christmassy ensemble). So while the search continues I'll stop here for a while. xxx

  11. Why wear the tights in an outfit where you have to awkwardly lift the dress up?

    Not trying to be mean, just would have preferred to see such bold tights paired with something that complimented them instead of hiding them.

  12. been a fan of the over-the-knee socks look lately. may i ask what your eyelash regime is like these days? still falsies or extensions?

  13. I love it! I never wear maxis in winter because I haven't ever thought to put tights underneath. (Forehead slap.)
