Let's Talk About Socks, Baby.

I have a confession to make: I finally threw out four pairs of trouser socks that I purchased at Anthropologie in 2009

Yes, I know. I was wearing those damn socks for way too long. I just couldn't bring myself to throw them out, because what else was I supposed to wear with my boots? My ankle socks for the gym weren't going to cut it for any of them. So I kept on going until I just couldn't ignore the holes anymore. And I threw them out.

I realized I had reached a point where I wasn't even wearing them that often, and I was wearing said gym socks with my moto boots. So last month during Black Friday sales, I took advantage of Madewell's sale and bought a buttload of socks. And look how cute they are! My feet and ankles are happy campers now.

I guess it's sort of weird, right? The lingerie blogger ignores her feet and suits up in gym socks while wearing La Perla? I don't know—I suppose we all have our priorities and for the past 5 years, they just weren't my feet. I did invest in a few pairs of thin Wolford Velvet 66 socks for the few pairs of boots I have where those old trouser socks and my gym socks were just too bulky, and those were a lifesaver. I'd love a whole drawerful of those if I could. Think of how much space they'd save! But especially worn with boots, these fun socks are indeed like lingerie for the feet—they're just a little bit of fun that only you know about.

Oh, and P.S. all the remaining patterns for the Hansel from Basel x Madewell socks are $5.99 - $9.99 right now, so… you're welcome. x

Bra-Spotting at Madewell

Here's what I learned this weekend:
1. Madewell has some really friggin cute sweaters that I'd like for Christmas (Santa, I hope you're reading this).
2. Madewell has some really adorable mesh polka-dot bras by Honeydew Intimates. I didn't know they were carrying intimates in the stores (just goes to show how often I shop in stores now—not often enough).
3. You will get yelled at for taking photos in Madewell because apparently you're not allowed to. Bummer.

Regardless, I have to show you how cute these bras were! The mint green one was my favorite, and the nude one is nice too. But the mint one is my favorite, and unfortunately is not listed on the website currently. The back strap is elastic with three hooks for extra comfort. Hooray!

Apparently there are also really cute matching briefs
