For the majority of the year, I don’t wear socks. It might be a little harsh, but at times I feel like I hate socks. Sounds dramatic typing it out, but it’s the truth. So, when it starts getting colder and flip flops are no longer the go-to shoe option, I have to start wearing socks again. Thankfully, I’m live in a time when socks are not just something to keep your feet warm, but can be fashion statements. One of the new fashion statements for fall and winter are pretty sheer socks.
Although I’m not a fan of fashion socks, I can definitely get behind this trend. If you want to wowed some pretty insanely beautiful socks that are merely here for being “cute”, then keep reading.
It’s been consistently chilly these past week, finally! This weekend, while watching/listening to documentaries on Netflix, I decided to pull out the rest of my sweaters from the top shelf in my closet. While ankle deep in my sweaters, I realized that they were all solid colors. I wasn’t too shocked, since most of my clothes are solid colors. However, for the past few months, I’ve been trying to test out the world of prints. After wearing a few printed dresses recently, I like them a little more every time. Therefore, I feel I need to added some printed sweaters to the mix.
Since this is still a new aesthetic to my basic life, I’m not sure where to start when prints on sweaters. Last night, during commercial breaks during The Walking Dead, I found a few sweaters with prints that didn’t make me question who I was becoming. If you’re interested to see what printed sweaters made me smile while watching “walkers” get killed, keep reading.
I have to admit, I’m feeling a little salty, because the weather hasn’t been consistently cold. On one day it’s unseasonable warm and I’m thinking about wearing sandals to work. However, the next day, I’m digging my combat boots and lightweight sweaters from the back of my closet. Not to mention, now that Halloween is dunzo, it’s starting to look a lot like Christmas around Memphis. My daily commute down Poplar features lamp poles with lighted snowflakes with Christmas music playing while my windows are down to catch the warm breeze. Just all types of wrong. Another thing that’s just wrong is my desire to finally get into puffer jackets.
It’s been decades since I’ve had a legit puffer jacket and I’m not talking about those thin flimsy looking ones. I’m talking about the ones that are so plump, you look like you’re related to Michelin man. I’m already quite puffy, but that has yet to deter me from wanting a puffy looking jacket. Plus, there are too many cute and even nostalgic options to not at least consider getting one.
For the past few weeks, I’ve developed an intense and usual obsession with signet rings. They are chic, but with a touch of gaudy. They are versatile and can be worn formally or casually. Personally, I think everyone should be into signet rings.
Although you can wear a signet ring on any finger, I love them worn as pinky rings. I guess that’s another thing I love about them; that they work on every finger. Keep reading to see which signet ring may tickle your fancy.
I am a creature of habit that loves to be comfortable. I also love for things to be easy. Therefore, I can get stuck and start to hate everything. One thing I learned about trying to get unstuck is to get uncomfortable. A few months ago, I realized that I had become stuck in my closet of basic pieces that I can switch and mix with each other. So, I decided to get out of my norm of basic solid pieces and start embracing prints for fall.
Don’t get me wrong, I love and will continue to mostly buy solids, but prints are slowly becoming my jam. So much so, that I’ve worn and documented a lot of prints over the past few weeks. So, interested in my journey of embracing prints with some cute pieces that I got from Simply Be, then keep reading.
