heels + sockies

How happy are you that it's Friday?! Happy enough to sport something new, fashion-wise? Well, I'll be the first to admit that I do a reasonable amount of pushing the limits with my style--try to juggle the classic with the trendy all at once and whenever I can. But this new trend is something I have not yet grabbed onto: heels + socks. I will tell ya that Urban Outfitters (one of my all-time fave local go-to stores, and often a staple on my lunch break!) has shown off a few heels + socks ideas that you might just digg. What'cha think, Friday-lady?

Vintage-inspired and multi-colored Betsey Johnson Lovely L'oeil crew sock shows off eclectic style that pairs well with these basic black & white kicks:
Throwback to the 80's, when Phil Collins was big, and Kanye was poor, and dress yourself up in these Fancy Rib Knit legwarmers. Found in sweet yellow, bold black or go-with-anything grey.

Elegant & budget-friendly Lace Ankle Socks pair perfectly with colorful pumps and buckled-up details:

Sweetness at its best: Pointelle Ankle Socks with ruffles adorn any simple outfit with an extra flare of fashion.

So: heels + you dare?

  1. Lace ankle socks are VERY cute!!! Kara XOXO

  2. I don't hate the look, especially with little lace socks, but I don't think that I could ever pull it off!

  3. I can't REALLY get into it, but I did see a thigh high sock/clog combo that was adorable, and I might be into something like that.


  4. I love this look and have tried it once with sheer pink striped socks from tabio and brown sandal wedge shoes. As it is so cold now I have switched to knee socks and tights now though.

  5. Although I do agree with your post, I have my own reservations.

  6. I definitely would, it looks damn cute on so many chic ladies! But...I must admit, I slip around too much when I try the sockies. It just doesn't work. :(

    FAB post! Love your inspirations!

  7. Really don't love the look but I like it better with the lace socks than the regular ones.

  8. That's exactly how I like to wear my grunge boot, with the leg warmer. I actually did it for warmth, but figured it looked great too...
    Just did a fashion post on Tim Burton and some interesting previous encounters which you might like...
    Check me out ;) Nonchalant

Shoe closet love.

I will be the first to stand up and admit that I have a fabulous husband. Not only is he smart, funny, creative and patient, but he's pretty darned hot too! I still consider us newlyweds (and probably will for quite some time), because we're always doing thoroughly silly stuff for one another--keepin' things fresh, fun and surprising, ya know? Here's one of my fave pics of us, taken a few years ago during our engagement photoshoot. Good times. That being said, I was still simply breath-taken when I came home from a way-too-long day of work and found that my sweet beau had used his furlough day (yes, it's not just a vicious rumor that we have those all over the place in the state of CA) to transform our hall coat closet into none other than a shoe closet . You heard me right... shoe closet = every girl's dream, ya? We don't really use our hall coat closet anyway, living in such a warm southern California city, so I was thrilled to actually put this space t

You guys. Has it seriously been a full YEAR since I've typed up a blog post on here? That is both depressing and encouraging. Depressing--because I feel like I have forgotten about my first "child" my Holly in Heels blog. Encouraging--because it means that I have been suuuper busy with other fun and creative projects, like my continued PR and media copywriting, contributions to Coyote + Oak magazine out of San Luis Obispo, as well as Locale Magazine 's newest San Francisco addition. I have to admit that while these other (paying) jobs keep me busy and on my toes, I do stop and think about my former life as a fashion and lifestyle blogger, and how I miss the creative outlet. To be able to write about whatever topic I choose is certainly a gift. Writing is also therapeutic for me--this blog is like a friend. Like the kind you can call up anytime, talk about the deep stuff and then mention this new conditioner you tried...and then switch back to the meaning of lif

5 Creative Ways to Store and Display your Fabulous Shoes.

Before we begin...I need to ask for your forgiveness. I haven't blogged  since May . Ahhhh! Shame on me, I know. But before you grab your voodoo doll and punish me for the lack of shoe inspiration I've been sending your way, please be proud of my for massively growing my freelance writing business, tackling some public relations work, and stepping up  my Instagram pop-up shop . It's been fun, but the blog has been lacking. Luckily, I got guest blogger, Kelsey, to help me out this week with a fun story about how to creatively store and display your shoes (and keep you looking stylish, too!). Read on. . . . Shoes can pose a serious storage problem, even in spacious closets. The average American owns 19 pairs of shoes , while most shoe lovers are guilty of hoarding many more than that. This can too easily cause clutter and set us back 5 or 10 minutes during our morning routines. If you need shoe organization ideas to get a wrangle on your repertoire, Modernize has sever
