Trend Whoring: Leggings & Socks & Sandals

All the things that are wrong. Together. In one place. For your eyes to see.

Oh! Wait! Pretty?

When Lindsay and I bought these Nine West sandals (yes, we both have a pair, and bought them on…the same…day…) I knew that I would wear socks with them. I didn’t know if it would look good – in fact, I was full of fear the first time I did it and stuck with basic black – but I’ve become bold in my old age, and when it started to get really cold, I decided to break out the neon green stripes.

And babes, I get cold. So cold, in fact, that I’ve not shaved my legs since summer ended solely in hope that it would better insulate my poor, shivering body.

(FYI, it totally does.)

Back to the neon green stripes, and the leggings underneath. The latter are sweater-y, so they’re a little bunchy where they meet the socks…but that’s my only real complaint, and it’s easily outweighed by how deliciously soft and warm my legs and feet were all day.

And the compliments! I work, during the day, at a freaking law firm, people. A law firm. And people loved this look! If you’re worried your job will frown on leggings (or tights) and socks, just remember: if a paralegal can do it, so can you.

  • Heee. >w> Did you guys know i’m going to law school in 2013? I know what i’m going to be wearing~

  • Cute! I enjoy the socks and tights/leggings look, but I don’t have enough socks that aren’t ankle socks so I’m not able to do it much! This looks really nice though and it’s good to know you could get away with it at your job too!
