I need to discuss this whole socks + heels situation.
Here's the thing... I keep seeing this look all over the internet and my initial reaction was (huh) which was immediately followed by (YES!!!.) I don't know if it's because I live in a cooler climate, or maybe an early mid-life crisis, but whatever it is I am feeling this whole socks + heels look something fierce. I am now sitting here wondering 1) if this is something I can pull off, and 2) is this something I can pull off in Boston.
I can say with 100% certainty that if I lived in New York, LA, or Paris that I would rock this look in a heartbeat. Boston, well Boston is a little more conservative and while I have no question pushing up against the norm, I'm wondering if this would be a little much. That being said, I'm sure on the next night out with my best girl it's going to be hard for me to not give this look a spin and in case I get up enough courage I ordered these because really, it's just a pair of socks. Besides, just look how chic this trend is!!! I love it so much I almost feel that this is exactly how heels were meant to be worn all along and we are all just getting the memo now*
Oh, and now that my husband is 40, he has decided that his casual "look" will permanently consist of open toed Birkenstocks worn with brightly colored socks underneath. I'm not kidding when I say he wears this footwear choice everywhere and I realized that we truly were meant to be because I LOVE it. Maybe this just means we will have safety in numbers when stepping out on the town in our socks + heels / socks + birks or maybe it means we are "those people." Whatever the case, at least we will be together AND we will have warm feet!
I'd love to know what you all think of the look? Am I in the minority in my obsession? xx
* Also, warmth. Also, comfort. End of story.
