Hey, yins and yangs! Looks like it’s gonna be just you and me for a while, so cuddle up. I knew from the start that I only wanted this blog to be a fun hobby–I never wanted it to feel like a drag or like work, so I’m glad Tia’s gonna take some time off so that she can rejuvenate her Tialiciousness. We’re gonna miss you, though, Tia! Everyone knows she’s the Cheerleader to my What’s Her Face.

Anyway, she’ll be back soon and we’ll both get busy looking SO GOOD! Until then, I’ll be here, screwin’ around and trying new things. Case in point: oxfords + socks. I wanted to try it out because I really like the heels + socks thing (and I’ve been super inspired by Sock Dreams’ Pinterest boards), and I was wondering if I could pull it off with non-heels and still make it look intentional. I was nervous about cutting my leg off at that ankle point, especially since I have thick ankles and calves and socks tend to not slouch so becomingly around said ankles–but I figured that if I started feeling scared about wearing a dang pair of socks, that meant that I HAD to try it. Don’t be scared of socks, you know?

Anyway, I’m not sure how I feel about this particular version, but I do like that the polka dots in the socks go with the polka dots in the scarf. I’ll keep playing around with socks, and then when cooler weather finally hits here again, I’m gonna wear all my sweet Sock Dreams thigh-highs and rock ’em.

Tomorrow I’ll be jetting off to Minnesota, the most sack-of-flour-lookin’ state in the whole continent. Woo-ha! Updates may be a bit irregular, but if I can’t post, I’ll ask Flat Tire to write a guest article or two. What do you say to that, Flat Tire?


I’m excited already.

  1. I’m so glad you tried socks with oxfords because I too am sort of obsessed with socks and pumps but didn’t know how to start and now I think I need to try this.

    Also, I will miss Tia immensely, but I’m super glad you’re still here!

  2. Oxfords and socks… I like it, especially when they’re patterned. I have oxfords that I need to wear more, but they basically need to be professionally broken in because the leather’s very stiff. Always get blisters! Your bow and pearl earrings are so pretty. First thing I noticed in your head-to-toes!
