With autumn in full swing there has been one trend I have been recently obsessed with, socks and heels. I feel like this trend started last autumn but has hit the mainstream this year with more “heel-friendly” socks available and at a reasonable price at stores such as Target.
The past couple times I have been at Target checking out their A New Day line I have seen these socks for $4 for a 2 pack and finally just bought them since I kept looking at them everytime I am there. The color and sparkles drew me in.
I absolutely love this trend since it allows you to get a little more wear out of your summer heels and it adds such an interesting touch to an outfit. While wearing the above socks and heels this past week I was surprised by how many people came up to me to comment on the combination.
Although I bought these pair to wear with my black basket sandals from Old Navy you don’t have to go out and buy a new pair. I pulled together some great inspiration for this trend that is easily doable for any style and you may already have the perfect “heel-friendly” socks already in your sock drawer and don’t be afraid to mix and match colors and prints – have fun with this trend.

1970s fashion has always been an era of fascination for me ever since I have remembered. I was probably the only 4th grader that had bell bottoms and crochet tops as her wardrobe staples and seventies themed birthday parties to boot. Thank you, mom, for providing the killer soundtrack for those parties. There is something about fall that makes me crave that seventies color palette and style. With it feeling more like fall this past week I have been feeling nostalgic for those bell bottoms. Unfortunately, I haven’t got my hands on a pair yet this season so my SNL inspired mom jeans will have to do.
Now I don’t if I look as cool as Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler did, but I am sure trying my hardest to rock these mom jeans. In my effort to channel my inner retro style I paired this off-the-shoulder top, I found at Target for $12.99, with my all time favorite basket sandals and gold hoop earrings. These hoops, which I found at Target as well for $7.99, have been an everyday earring for me lately. They give an effortlessly cool seventies vibe to this outfit which I am obsessed with.
When walking around Chagrin Falls trying to find the perfect setting to capture this outfit, it only made sense to go to one place. How many people can say that they matched their outfit with their surroundings? The Popcorn Shop in Chagrin Falls is a timeless spot, and although it was there way before the 1970s, it channels the spirit of a past decade.
