Break Rules: Wear Socks With Sandals

By  |  0 Comments

It feels like 2017 has lasted about 3.5 years already and it’s only February. Perhaps our city’s cold weather and lack of sunshine is to blame for making both January and February feel like one long day. And I tell ya, I have had it!

Let me wear spring sandals and live my life. But wait –  speaking of wearing sandals, this trend of wearing socks with your sandals is both puzzling and intriguing to me. Have you seen the hordes of It girls pairing their best low cut sport with their Alaïa?

It’s so very taboo and naturally, I’m obsessed. It’s like a big fuck you to this harsh Canadian winter. Wanna try it? I do! Here’s a few inspo on how to delve into this trend.


Gone are the days when the sight of someone wearing socks with their sandals causes sort of a gagging reflex. There are no more rules to adhere to! So much so that I risk missing my streetcar stop as I conjure fantasies of wearing things that completely don’t go together.

Let’s be renegades today. Let’s eat dessert first, book a plane ticket before asking for vacation time, refuse to adhere to habitual winter clothes, stop pumping the breaks and jump in, ask that boy/girl out, eat some bread.

It’s Thursday, go forth and break some freakin’ rules!
