Casual Friday

11 Mar

Or should I say Thursday? I wore this yesterday…it’s been a long week, and I was already ready for something low key by Thursday! That’s what happens when you stare at a set of contract drawings for hours on end.  I’m getting ready for an exciting weekend…one night out dancing with the girls, and an afternoon with the husband pretending to be art snobs at the Kimbell Art Museum. Can it get any better than that?

But what I really wanted to talk to you about was a new type of post I’m going to start next week. Do you have a style or type of clothing / accessory that you’re just not QUITE ready to try out? Well, let me be your mock-up! My sister mentioned that she was browsing a colleague’s photography blog and ran across this photo in the midst of this post (and this one!). She really likes the idea of pairing short ruffle socks with heels. I’ve also seen the ‘socks and heels’ (yeah, that’s the technical term) trend in a number of place, so be on the look out, because I’ll be trying this out for you!

1 – J.Crew

2 – Banana Republic

3 – ASOS

4 – Urban Outfitters

    Socks with heels seem like they would cut off even the longest of legs, making them look shorter and wider than they really are… right?? But don’t listen to me. I’d wear converse high tops with shorts.

      Yeah, I’m interested to find out, especially since I have shorter legs. I’m hoping that by choosing a light cream or tan color that it won’t do that. But that’s why I’m your mock-up–let me look silly before you do! 😉
