thursday love



I love striped socks. I love shoes too but I think maybe I like striped socks with shoes even more. though lately, all I seem to be capable of is throwing on sweats and sneaks. I am the ultimate mommy cliche. I think maybe I owe it to myself to wear something that is not black and stretchy. I owe it my feet, I know that much. hello feet. here are those purdy socks and shoes I promised to put on you. (what's that you say? you were hoping for a deluxe pedicure? the one with the rose petal foot bath and lemon sugar scrub? too bad. that's a pipe dream and you know it).

perhaps the best part about these socks is that I found them at the dollar store. they were hiding behind the mens' black dress socks and my heart jumped a little when I saw them.

thank you joy, for spreading the love. more things that people love here and here.

  1. you crack me up...your sheer adoration of striped socks, photobooth pics,vintage paper,cherry anything, dancing, and most importantly your family is an inspiration to us all...there's just so much out there to love!

    p.s. I'm a little partial to the snuggly booties you get at the hospital...but living in Las Vegas I get to go sockless for most of the year...yippee!

  3. You certainly do pull this off without a hitch, woman. I love this style. On you. On my girls. For me it's like shovin a square peg in a round hole. Uh, but the UO shoes?? SO DIGGIN!

  5. Striped socks and shoes that reveal the wonderful stripey-ness are a match made in heaven! I so love the UO shoes, I wonder if they still have them... Must go see - would it be awful to copy you :)

    (Here is my usual striped combo

  6. Andrea, my post cut itself short, I'm not sure what I did. Sorry! I tried linking to a photo of my stripey sock goodness but it didn't seem to work. Oops!

  7. When I saw the thumbnail of your picture I thought it was little doll legs! I too am a stripe lover. I have tights and socks. IN my highschool yearbook you can find me smack in the middle of the choir photo with my black and white witchy tights on! I just bought some lime green and yellow stripes from Target the other day. My favorite socks these days are ones that say "rock" on the ankle and have just a few subtle rhinstones. hehehe.

    Cute socks too. It would never in a million years have occurred to me to put the two together, but I love the look on you!
