sock it to me

Thursday, November 29, 2012

I hate socks. Period. 

They bunch up & that stupid seam across the toe is very annoying. If I had my way I would live in flip flops. Unfortunately, frostbite is not in fashion this season - so I am forced to step into some socks. 
My go-to from the knees down for winter workwear is riding boots and a skirt. Unless I can manage to get into tights without snagging them, this means I have to wear boot socks.

Trying to zip my boots up around my thick {but oh so adorable} socks is not the kind of obstacle I feel like tackling at 7:00 am. As a result I usually abandon my cutie-bootie socks and wear something boring & thin just so I can make out the door.

Just when I was about to give up, a miracle happened... Ok, so it was just Pinterest {obviously} but it made my day, so I'm sticking with miracle. I found this glorious lil' gem...


Immediately, I ran to my drawers and started pulling out some sacrificial sweaters {that's a lot of "s"!} & chopped the sleeves off. This perfect little trick lets you rock the thick sock trend without having to worry about snagging zippers & cramped cankles.

A little extra tip: head over to Goodwill for some men's sweaters, 
then you won't have to part with your own!

you are welcome!
