Working With Style…Happy Feet

Welcome to winter. Oh the love hate relationship I have with you.  Pro: I like scarves Con: I am hot natured so wearing cute sweaters means I ROAST inside if I am comfortable outside. Pro: Sweatpants. Con: Dry skin. Pro: cute boots Con: no other warm shoe option with skinny jeans.

And this is my dilemma.  I bought into skinny jeans last year and WHY DIDN’T I DO THIS BEFORE? I have always been petite…so regular jeans make my legs look bigger than they are. Skinny jeans solve this!

I mean...BAM

The fall is the perfect weather.  I can rock them with cute flats, flip flops and the occasional boot on a brisk day. Glorious!

Hello croc these cuties

I can even wear skirts with no tights and cute boots!

BAP! I love my legs...not gonna lie

But then winter shows her whore face and I am stuck.  I want warm feet and I want to wear skinny jeans.  Not I can wear my boots over the jeans, which I do, but sometimes the outfit isn’t right for the boots I have. I want to wear my Toms or my Croc flats…but SO COLD. So I have recently decided that if it is cold as hell, I am going hipster.  I will wear my Toms WITH socks. *GASP* But along with this, I want to wear RIDICULOUS socks.

Cue the flashy argyle socks

Then it can be a conversation piece rather than “check out that frumpy white girl”.  Well…this frumpy white girl has warm toes…SO SUCK IT!

P.S. Yes I am still wearing skinny jeans while pregnant.  Another awesome feature of them, STRETCHY! I won’t need maternity pants for a good while at this rate! WOOT!

I am linking up with Brandee this week over at Liberating Working Moms.  You should too!

    I have the same problem with my skinny jeans and shoes. And if I didn’t have such wide feet I’d totally be rocking TOMS with socks. The problem for me, now, is that I’ve gained weight, and well the skinny jeans don’t fit anymore. Sigh. That’s kind of a sidetrack. Any who, I can’t wait to see more of your Working With Style posts as you’re baking that baby of yours 🙂

    I can’t do skinny jeans and by extension can’t really do boots. And here you are however much pregnant you are and still able to rock the skinny jeans. You suck. 😉

    I love the socks with Toms. I think that’s hilarious, and you will probably start some crazy fashion trend.

    I’m still wearing my skinny jeans too! Mostly because I bought them after Christmas last year when I was up close to 15 lbs. so they’re too big. But, whatever, I’m going with it! However, I WILL be buying some maternity skinnies to go with my boots.

    P.S. Frumpy white girl, my ass.

    Dude, that is SO how to rock flats and socks. I would do the EXACT same thing.
