Very Superficial

In my head, that title was funny because I was singing "Very Superstitious . . ." (I have NO idea why I was singing that, as it is totally unrelated to this blog) Anyway.

I was getting dressed this morning. Jeans (what else) an olive undershirt and a pink cable knit sweater, that I love and probably wear WAY too often. Then I had the shoe dilemma, as my jeans are just the slightest bit long for flats, but the slightest bit too short for heels, and I wasn't in the mood for boots - mostly because my feet hurt from wearing clunky heeled shoes all day at church yesterday - stupid choice.

So, I decided to go with the flats (super cute maryjanes that are plaid and have the perfect amount of pink in them). But then I thought, "It is going to be cold today, getting colder as the day goes on, so if I wear these, I am going to need socks." But that made me think about Sarah coming to have lunch with me the other day and making fun of me for wearing socks with flats. Seriously, I didn't know that wasn't allowed.

Granted, I am not particularly a fashion plate, I don't wear jewelry very often, I don't wear a tremendous amount of make up, but I'm not slovenly, nor ugly, at least in my husband's opinion! :) But, I do try to be fashion "aware." So this news about socks and flats being a fashion faux paux was a little disconcerting. I mean, I knew about pantyhose and open toed shoes being a no-no, but no one told me about socks and flats. Socks and sandals, sure, but these are close toed shoes people.

So, help me out here. Socks or no socks?

All that to say, this blog makes me sound very superficial, doesn't it?


  1. Move back to Corpus Christi and you won't ever have to worry about it. = )

  2. Definitely wear socks with flats. I do it all the time. Just make sure that they are thin, like turn-cuff anklets!

  3. I hate to break it to you, but you need to trust Sarah, and I'm sorry but the other person who commented above me is unaware as well. Flats are not to be worn with socks, and you should thank Sarah for filling you in! Oh, and actually, I think this post proves that you are not superficial because you obviously aren't so caught up in things to usually worry about all these fashion rules.

    ps - I miss you and would love a random get together after the holidays, and I love stalking you on your blog!
