Socks and the city

I'm the kind of person who spends almost all of summer completely sockless.  This year, as sock weather has officially arrived, I realized that I need a complete sock drawer overhaul.  Variety of thickness, color and length is essential people! And my sock drawer is not living up to my perfectly comfy fall feet expectations.  After buying a couple of pair of adorable yet cheep-ish socks from Urban Outfitters- two are already thin around the toes!!! I decided to do some seriously knit-picky sock research and then share it with all of you.  Below, is my metaphorical dream sock drawer.

These are all from Steven Allan and Madewell.  More expensive but hopefully less prone to holes.

And all of these are Modcloth socks! They're all around the same price as my Urban Outfitter's socks but so, so freaking adorable, I just can't resist!

I'd love to hear all about your favorite socks in the comments, so sock it to me! Let's talk thickness, fabric consistency  length and of course patterns and colors! Do you like to go wacky and silly in the sock department or toe the line and keep it conservative, or both? Nothing like cozying up with your favorite show on the tube and your favorite socks on your feet! I want to hear you opinions on everything socks, darn it!

PS- Might have gone a little sock puns crazy- I couldn't help myself!  How many can you find in this post? :)

  2. I rarely wear socks! Living in Southern California makes it easy to do this for most of the year. During our "coldest" months, however, it's not ideal. haha

  3. Brilliant puns haha. I wear socks basically all year through because even in summer it gets cool at night and my feet are ALWAYS cold. My favourite type are most similar to the green ones with foxes on above. I'd actually love those because I've got a thing for fox print stuff at the moment. Anyway, medium height, nice thick cotton, soft, comfy, long-lasting. I LOVE socks haha. I must be the only person who doesn't begrudge getting them for Christmas!
