Socks with My Shoes Please!

Show of hands.  Who does this?

Socks please




I see a turtleneck, a puffer jacket of some sort, and the a nice wool coat...all on top.
I see a pair of skinny jeans and little flats.

Hmmm.

What am I missing here?

I would either be sweating my ass off on top and be comfortable on bottom.  Or, I would be warm and snuggly on top and frostbite would be settling in on my tootsies.

Here's another example.  J Crew is just easy pickins.


daryl winter clothes





Ya think she's wearing ballet flats or
loafers?  























Sorry,  I don't always want to wear boots.  I want to wear loafers.  I want to wear socks with my loafers.  My feet are the first thing to get cold and once cold, I am cold the rest of the day. Our weather doesn't require boots and parkas but for a few days...I hope.  In the meantime, maybe something like this:

Socks with My Shoes Please!
Maybe

Or:

Socks with My Shoes Please!
I can do this
Or:

Socks with My Shoes Please
She looks adorable.  I might end up looking like a dork.

Just a bit of info that I found particularly funny.  
Every once in a while I check my stats on blogger.

Yesterday, some one did a search for "South African Huge Ass".
Guess who's blog they got?!  WTF.

  1. Okay, you have me crying. South African huge ass? Wtf?

    I wear socks. I even have very thin black ones for ballets that are suede. I hate to be cold! I got your back!

    1. Usually I get big boobs something or another...I was quite taken aback by this one. Who is putting that in their search engine?!

    2. Weirdos are putting it into their search engines, that's who. Google knows all!

  2. Laughing my head off over the huge ass search, that is so funny!
    Yeah here in Canada we wear our wool coats with bare ankles all the time, that's totally an option.

    1. Don't your feet get cold? The fashion powers that be say "no" to socks with loafers but me and my S.A. big badonkadonk really don't give a poop.

    2. We'd get frostbite literally, I'm already wearing boots and giant socks all the time, sorry that was my sarcastic voice which is muffled by the internet. ;)

  3. Ha! Don't you just love blog search stats? Always makes me slightly sad for the fate of civilization. I wear massive socks, uggs, uggs on my uggs. And cashmere bed socks with shearling slippers. I freeze half the year up here so the J crew thing seems nuts to me. If I'm in cute shoes in winter, I'm also in a cab with the heat blasting and a lightweight velvet opera coat. It doesn't happen often.

    1. I'm heading for ghostly glow in the dark white skin in a few weeks so it looks like I have tube socks on anyway. An opera coat? Now that's a glamorous life even if you just wear it twice.

    1. Once my feet are cold I can only warm up in a hot bath. One article said if you must wear socks wear nude hose...like that'll help keep the piggies warm.

  6. Yep, the flats and ballet pumps have officially been replaced by socks and boots today.

    1. We are not there yet, thankfully. Some days I just want socks and shoes to slip on not pull on.

    1. I did notice your short sleeves with gloves the other day. I did the SAHA...my new nickname...and after five pages of porn sites I gave up trying to find my blog. So your the expert at hiding eh?

    1. Do tell what you find. I can just picture them coming to my site and saying WTF?!

  10. In Chicago winters, road and sidewalk salt see that those ballet flats don't even make it to lunch. I've hardly even noticed you're South African...

  11. OMG how I love this post. Everything about it, BB -- er, SAHA. :-) I am a perpetually cold-footed, socks-after-October-15th girl -- my entire winter self-dressing routine starts with looking at the weather forecast and then organizing an outfit around boots, booties or a great pair of socks and loafers or oxfords. This thing J. Crew has with sockless shoes reminds me of the way I used to feel at age 30 when I'd park my car two blocks from my law office and scurry, frozen, to work in pumps, pantyhose and Eskimo clothing from mid-shin up. :-)

    The question is where do y'all find cute socks? I'm always like a nomad in search of water in the desert this time of year, trolling through TJMaxx, Marshall's, DSW, Target etc. looking for socks that are (1) thin enough to wear with my loafers (I've got narrow feet but thick socks make my shoes hurt. Middle age.) and (2) cotton or a wool blend -- anything but that gross polyester stuff that slides around in your shoes and feels crummy on your feet! and (3) will stay freakin' in place without the heel s-l-i-d-i-n-g down my foot all day. :-)

    Ideas??

    1. Me too! I love Smartwool, they are a bit pricey but they really wear well. My husband swears by them in winter when he's out in the cold all day. Garnet Hill has nice cashmere/blend socks with dots or stripes but I wait until there is some kind of discount...or Christmas time.

      Delete
    2. Thanks shugga! I like SmartWool too, although sometimes they feel too hiking sickish for certain shoes. I'll keep you posted on my quest. :-) Good catch on Garnet Hill -- haven't looked there in a while!

  12. I'll dissent :) If I could never wear socks, that would be fine with me. I'll go barefoot at home as much as I can. I was taking out the trash cans last winter in negative temps wearing no socks and (winter) crocs on my feet. I went out in the snow barefoot a couple of winters ago just for fun. I hate socks, but wear them when 1) I know I'm going to be outside in the cold for an extended period of time or 2) when I think my feet are going to sweat in my Uggs, then I'll wear a very thin ankle sock inside.

    I like those looks you posted, though - they make socks with shoes pretty cute.

    I'll add my W.T.F. to the chorus about the huge ass search. I wonder a lot of things, but I really wonder why specifically South African huge ass?

    1. So you're the muse! Too cute. I much prefer flip flops over anything else but my feet go cold fast and then I just can't seem to warm up.

  13. Love all these outfits - you're from South Africa??? (JK) we must compare net balling positions being part of the colonies and all.
    Everytime I do that thing of rolled up trousers and sleeves and stuff, I just end up rolling them down again. There must be a sleeve shusshing and pant rolling gene and I don't have it.
    That parka is awesome. I wear my jacket inside, I love to be toasty at all times

  14. I've tried the rolling thing and just think I look like a dork...but then I'm not a huge fan of skinny pants either. My hubs struggles with rolling his sleeves. He always wants to roll them inwards...weird.

  15. I like coming over hear for the laughs and some really great ideas for wearable fashion.
