Sock it to you

I always like this look on other people, but socks in shoes look so silly on me. I felt like being silly today, just to get that whole load of exam bullshit off my shoulders for a short while. I've been pen-clicking, out of tune-singing, binge-eating and silly-joking all day and I will continue to do so until somewhere around 3 pm, monday afternoon, when my last exam is finished. UGH can't wait!

So here's my silly socky look


I know this sort of look is supposed to be done with chic, smooth socks rather than the socks you use to shuffle around the house in or keep your feet warm at night, but I sort of like how they push the silliness of socks in heels to the next level.

Off for another round of studyin'! Yeay me! At least the weather's supposed to be superb tomorrow and the day after, a sudden increase of 10°celsius and not a raindrop in sight? YES PLEASE


dress: T2 vintage 
cardi: H&M
socks: dunno, old :-D
wedges: Sac d'Anvers
belt: boyfriend's
ring: Alex Monroe


This outfit would've been so much better with my denim jacket, but I was too lazy to go downstairs and get it. Seriously, does it get any lazier than that?

  5. i have tried to wear socks with heels but it never works for me... my feet start to slip out the front if the shoe, it's weird! i think the fuzzy socks might actually be the key to success with this thing!

  8. I've recently discovered how gloriously comfy socks and sandals are, so I'm definitely feeling this look! I actually really like the super casual socks and military-style cardigan paired with such a sweet, girly dress. And I still can't get over how wonderful your pictures are getting! If I tried to take photos indoors with my little digital camera, the results wouldn't be pretty... Maybe I need to invest in a DSLR? (My problem is that if I use my spending money on a camera, I won't have as much left over for more clothes! Geez, I'm terrible.) <3

  9. If anything, I think the wool socks make walking in those sandal wedges a little more comfortable. They're kind of like maybe a cushion for them...? I don't know...I am loving the flower print on that dress though. :)

  10. I always feel a bit juvenile when wearing socks in the fashiony way (not the normal way). But I love it on other people and am determined to get over my prejudice against myself!
    Good luck with the last stretch of exams!

  14. Wow wow sister lady, check out them gams.

    It took me a while to warm up to the socks-with-heels thing (still workin' on it, actually) but I kind of like the rougher socks with girly heels. It is a little less twee... Something about the little lace ankle socks reminds me of the ones my mom mad me wear when I was a kid, ha ha. :)

  24. Ah I've given up socks and sandals, figure if more than one person says you look stupid its time to retire the look! Really kinda like yours tho... :)

  25. I'm right their with you: always love the look on others, never like it when I try it myself. I keep challenging myself though, maybe some time soon I'll get to that point too :-)
    I really like your jumper here, so I'm glad you were too lazy to get the jeans jacket!
