Boot Socks │ Winter Wear

So, I seriously said no to boot socks for a long time. Like ... a very long time. Why? Because I am a child of the  1980s. Boot socks, though I know this isn't true, are like leg warmers. And I know many of you are WAY to young to understand what a novelty -- and thereby abused and horrific style trend that came out of the 80s -- that leg warmers once were. But they were. And I thought that ship had sailed.

Apparently, EVERYTHING is cyclical in the fashion world. Not just some things. Everything.

In essence, leg warmers weren't "cool" to me. It's all jumbled together with Cindy Lauper (Um ... Google her people), break-dancing (Okay, this is still cool) and Back to the Future Movies (which will explain in depth what my childhood was all about).

But, leg warmers are actually kind of cool to me now, not for exercise, per se, which is what they were for in the 1980s, but with boots, and skinny jeans. So, this is good news. And Boot socks are really, really amazing! I found the best pair at this fantastic little online boutique called Closet Candy Boutique.

I LOVE them. Now, I need more, in different colors. Don't know how I lived without these before. Especially for me, as I have small calves and am always trying to fill in the boot space around my leg. These do the trick beautifully! They pair perfectly with a vintage top. A little vintage, a little modern, and all is well!
