you can leave your socks on

It is the understatement of the century to say that I’m sick of winter, these piles of dirty snow everywhere, and every single piece of winter clothing I own. I actually had a dream last night that I came upon Marion Cotillard, who had such winter blues that she’d taken to wearing drab black clothes, eating bad Chinese takeout and never leaving the house (and I trying to tell myself something…?). From this point onward, I’m going to set my sights on spring and preeeetty much pretend that winter is not here, and think about what I want to wear when that delicious warm/cool air starts blowing.

One look that I’m loving, and, I think, eager to try, is this whole socks-with-chunky-sandals thing. Also liking the look with flat oxfords too (see the J.Crew lookbook image above…and a selection of their socks here). That feminine/boyish mix really appeals to me, and with sandals I just really love the added texture and if going for contrast, color. I’ve seen a ton of looks with both skirts/dresses and with pants. What do you all think?

love the pink and red combo on chictopia

and this sweet skirted look, also from chictopia, that seems to give the look the right proportion

from papernstitch, this would look so pretty with a soft outfit in the same dreamy neutrals
