shedding my comfy style

when i say comfy...i don't just mean the lounge pants and long sleeve tees that are a serious staple of my wardrobe.

i mean getting out of my comfort zone...my instant thought to throw on a black sweater, jeans and a fun necklace or chunky earrings, or a tank and a cardigan with my diamond studs.

don't get me wrong, i still love those things...and if i'm in a hurry, they're always my default, because i know they work for me.

but lately, especially since i've been on my "sabbatical" from working...when i leave the house, i wanna try new things with my clothes. seeing as how i space out errands so i have somewhere to go every day...i'm certainly gonna try and look fly doing it.

so, yesterday i decided to try a little experiment with patterns and colors and see how i dug it.

here's my ensemble, and i gotta say i loved it!! i dug the grey coat with the dress...but the best part was definitely my lower half.

cuz those are grey and black striped socks. that i stole from the hubs. and rocked with grey snake-skin mary janes.

OBSESSED.

i don't think the hubs realizes how often i intend to snag his cute socks from now on...along with my knee-high target ones i scored for $2.

anyone else love the socks with pumps trend? any other fashion limbs i ought to try out?? i'm willing to give anything a shot once!
