Pink and Brown (aka Ice Cream Cone)

Whenever I wear pink and brown, I think of ice cream. Not that I'm a huge fan of ice cream (although I wouldn't shove it away if you bought me a cone of something with large chunks of chocolate and nuts in it...who am I kidding).

I built this whole outfit around the knee socks:
I am not a fan of pants, in general. They cling on my muscly thighs and well, why shouldn't I show off my legs? These pair are a little low on the hips, and they look a little too casual for my taste. I think I will have to replace them when I can shop again in January. I just don't have a lot of luck with dress pants in consignment stores.

Oh, the socks, yes, right:
Inigo is coming in for a rub. Seriously, aren't those awesome socks? I wish I had a full pair of tights in this pattern, then I'd scrap the pants altogether and just wear a skirt.

The stuff:
The Seattle shoes, some odds and ends of necklaces (two), my old trusty belt and the funky socks.

Cardigan (Esprit, consignment), cami (Plum), pants (Vero Moda), belt (Plum), socks (Sox Trot), shoes (Steve Madden, thrifted), chain necklace (Plum), pearly necklace (Le Chateau).

  6. Kristen - I need more funky socks. I need to embrace them.

    Sal, it's all part of my "Pretty in Pink" flashback, ha!

    Eednic, totally, neapolitan! I used to scoop out all the chocolate. I'm fine as long as there's no ice cream in the house. If there is, it's gone.

    Hi, austin and thanks for your comments! Welcome!

    Oh my god, Wendy, are you joking? I am so NOT photogenic! Thank you!
